What type of job do you have? My number #1 job is being a homeschooling mom to Alexander, Sophia and our border collie Izzy, although I don’t know that I would call it a job – I love it. I am fortunate to have a husband that supports me being home and enjoys all the benefits of a stay at home wife (home cooked meals, clean house, errands run, and best of all, a knowledge of his children that he wouldn’t have if we both worked all day.)
I also teach ESL (English as a Second Language) two evenings a week to adult learners from various parts of the world. If you could ever have a job that makes you feel good each and every time you go to work, it is my job. My students are always very appreciative of everything I do.
Where do you live? I am originally from Wichita, Kansas but moved to Chicago suburbs 10 years ago.
Where do you do your crafts/art work? I am not really a crafter but when I do it is in the dining room. To the west I can look out our big window in the living room that faces the front yard and to the east I can see out the backyard where squirrels and birds are constantly moving about in our trees.
What is your favorite daytime beverage? I love Zen (Tazo’s green tea) and drink several cups throughout the day. Actually, I made a cup to drink while doing this post. I also drink sparkling mineral water, regular tap water from our reverse osmosis and on occasion I will drink a glass of wine during the day or chocolate almond milk.
What is your favorite dessert? My newest dessert is coconut milk ice cream by So Delicious. It is totally dairy/soy free and super delicious. Also, I can gobble down a few(or more) homemade gluten free chocolate cupcakes. Trader Joe’s carried a gluten free black forest cake that was another one of my favorites but I just found out last week they discontinued it. I am still in sorrow over that.
Do you watch soap opera’s and if you do what’s your favorite? I don’t watch soap operas. Actually, I rarely watch TV during day. As a family we watch Eureka on the Sci-Fi channel, Family Guy, Chuck, Dick Van Dyke and Bewitched. If we are up late enough, I also enjoy Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
What’s the last movie you saw in a movie theatre? American Girl with my daughter Sophia and my sister in law Hilary. This has sparked Sophia and I into a unit on the Depression.
