1. Are you part of the back to nature/ecological group or are you more of the mindset of “I’ll do what I want and everything will work out in the end”?
I’m a steward of God’s creation and am held to a different and higher standard than nature or ecological groups. I worship the Creator and not His creation while trying to tend to the gifts He’s given me. My family was re-cycling long before it became popular…the Appalachian mindset has always been use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without. I suppose all that means…there’s nothing new under the sun smile.
2. What’s a favorite dinner dish to make?
Pasta is a big hit around here…fast, easy and inexpensive. On weekends, pork roasts are a favorite and during the summer time, I love to make a chunky gazpacho with home made bread.
3. What animals have you seen give live birth?
Kittens, dogs, calves, horses, sheep, pigs and have assisted kittens, dogs, sheep and horses give birth.
4. If you had the opportunity to teach something, what would you teach?
I’ve taught folks in Sunday School, high school, university, conferences, conventions and fiber festivals. The agriculture tourism class I developed for university I taught in Russia which was a blast. I’m still teaching; just spoke to a group of folks at a local church and the topic was getting your affairs in order, the same subject matter of the book I’m writing.
5. What did you love most about school? Learning! Although the school supplies were, and still are, pretty spectacular. I adore buying notebooks, pens, paper…love everything about school and a good teacher makes it wonderful.
I’m visiting Patrice at Everday Ruralty.
