I'm empty nester-wifey-teacher-grandmother-chef-crafter, who loves to learn new stuff. I'm always trying a new recipe, reading a crafting or decorating blog, painting something, or playing on facebook.
My third fav thing to do is have family and friends over for a dinner party. I love to cook and I love to eat. And I love my 4 kids. So I started a foodie blog to share all my recipes with my kids. (in case I die in a plane crash or something). Check it out http://weekdaychef.blogspot.com.
My fourth fav thing is teaching my 2nd grade class of gifted kids. I get to, you know, use paint and glitter and I get PAID for it!! I'm just waiting till somebody catches up to my scam! I love kids and I love that feeling of seeing kids "get it" when they learn something new. If you are a teacher too, check out my teacher blog http://pattiesclassroom.blogspot.com.
And since I've always believed in the 5 things......my 5th favorite thing to do is listening to beautiful music while I'm out in nature. I love my cabin at Bear Lake and walking through a waterfall hiking trail, or jet skiing on an aqua blue lake with my ipod in my ear, or gardening and seeing my flower bulbs erupting in the springtime. And if chocolate could be part of nature, I would add it to my list. But it's not so I'll end there. But if you love music too check out my Primary Music Leader blog. http://pattiesprimaryplace.blogspot.com.
I've been a music leader 4 different times and I've led kids' choirs and done many 1st and 2nd grade end of the year productions. I can teach an old dog a new trick, or a young dog a new trick, or a person something about old dogs....I've got one of those too. His name is Bruce. We call him Brucifer when he is bad. He's bad a lot! :D My hubs made this funny video. Don't watch it for long because nothing at all happens. He just lays there the entire time! :O
