Hobbies & Activities


My biggest ongoing project is the backyard garden. Tomatoes, potatoes, pickles, and salad fixings are just some of our favorite seasonal plants.


Cooking is such a wonderful way to learn about the chemistry around us everyday.


I am also a happy orchid grower. I have found that these beautiful plants require low maintance and beautiful flowers longer than most of my other plants. I am surprised by their ease of maintance.


Since 2004 I have had a passion for weaving. There is true beauty in the mathematical complexity. I enjoy creating projects on my 8 harness loom for friends, family and a few treats for myself ;)


Recently I have enjoyed creating soap from scratch. It is not difficult if you have the right tools and patience.
