I’ve been blogging off and on since 2005. I started out writing about my hobbies — knitting, gardening, cooking, and raising chickens — but haven’t stuck with one particular focus area in a long time. I’m a person who likes to learn new things and have new experiences, as well as reflect on my life, in general. I write about all of that here in one place.
I’m divorced and child free by choice. I’ve focused on raising animals instead: dogs and chickens.
I work in a profession that involves combining technical and people skills (knowledge management), but doesn’t produce stuff that you can hold in your hand. So, I seek other ways to fulfill my drive to produce tangible things: knitting, gardening, and cooking.
After growing up in the Chicago area and living within the Chicago city limits for over 20 years, I pulled up stakes and moved to the northern Bay Area in California in late 2014. Onward to new adventures!
