On My Mark, Get Set, BLOG!

This is a beginning for me. I have only just discovered blogs but the first one I encountered was so delightful (Chocolate & Zucchini) that I knew I wanted to give it a whirl even if I am computer illiterate.

So, I hope to learn by doing it and, perhaps, some theme will emerge. Right now I can simply say that I'm a 57 year old woman who lives in the somewhat more suburban outlying area of Los Angeles. I have been a stay-at-home family resource specialist (read "mom") for the last 28 years. I enjoy cooking and gardening (which is to say I always seem to resurect a bit of hope for the coming spring from the burned out wreck of the previous year's planting). I also, from time to time, quilt and mash around with other creative pursuits.

My present goal is to learn to speak French. To that end, I take classes at the local community college. I am fortunate in this respect because the campus that is only about 10 minutes from my home has managed to keep together a program that includes more ambitious mid-level (or, in my case, seriously deep water!) instruction with a couple excellent teachers.

So this will constitute my first effort to blog. How about that!?

Stephanie, I didn't leave the bread crumb trail back to your blog and I can't figure out how to e-mail you directly. If you happen to come back here, and I hope you will, I'll have this chance to thank you for your comment.

We're just about to get a new family of kittens. Three of them should be arriving next weekend. What fun!!!
