Since retiring in 2014 I have enjoyed the luxury of time--time for gardening, babysitting, volunteering, traveling, reading, feathering my nest, and sewing. My husband, Roy, and I still live in the home where we raised our three boys; it's a wonderful house but it is also 120 years old and always seems to need a remodeling project. I have an ambitious plan for a large gardening project in the spring and I can hardly wait to get that dirt under my fingernails. I'd like to be remembered as a maker of pies, quilts, gardens, art, fun, and home. What more could one ask out of life?Visit Connie's website
