An artist currently not working because of my eyes from diabetes; have 2 grown sons and 2 beautiful grandchildren - all in Texas. Tucson has been home since 1972. Born in California, I miss the gardens my family could grow. I love to garden but don't like the heat of summer, read mystery/drama fiction and non-fiction of many kinds. I'm a crafter, love music, miss dancing, used to enjoy baking, creating pretty and useful things and making things from nothing. Money is as tight as it is for everyone else so I really liked this site. I can share the information with my grandkids.
