I have 19 followers (I thank each and every one of you!) and would like to have you and many more followers so I am taking part in this year's Grow Your Blog Party. This event helps introduce bloggers to each other and is hosted by
Vicki at 2 Bags Full: http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com.
I am hoping this will help me grow my blog plus I will have the added benefit of meeting others and sharing their interests.
I started a stained glass business in TN in 1991 and when I moved up to PA in 2000 I continued it…until my husband Larry (Lar) retired last Oct.
Because of this, I had to get a job with benefits.I now work at the local college, or should I say I slave at the local college. I am a cook and my 90 day evaluation is on Monday. I will be asking for hazard pay!

(This is the least gross picture to show. I have a new burn on my chin I got on Friday and am black and blue on both arms and legs.)
I would like to go elsewhere for the money but the perks of working at the college are great. Work 6 weeks, have off a week, work 2 weeks, have off a month, etc. I work 6am.-2pm. Monday through Friday and have off all major holidays. Should I go to work waiting tables knowing I will have to work nights, weekends, and holidays???
My first passion is stained glass. I have been working in this medium for over 30 years. I am closing my studio and in the course of cleaning and packing I found my first project, a lamp (it was a kit) my brother gave me as a Christmas gift. I did put it together once but through all my moves it was damaged so now I am in the process of putting it back together. It is one of my first stained glass pieces I made and was the project that made me want to do stained glass.
I have many craft interests: sewing, quilting, painting, jewelry making, knitting, crocheting, just to name a few. I like to bake making my own bread about every other week, and I can and preserve in summer.
I am married (obviously), have 4 sons, (I usually write about my 2 sons), 4 grandchildren (again my 3).

I started blogging in Oct 2010 but got so frustrated (I have a lot of issues with computers) that I gave up time and again. I decided to give it an honest try this time and hopefully with this Grow Your Blog and your help I will succeed!
If you are visiting for the first time, I would love for you to follow me. I will try to post once a week. If nothing of interest has happened I might put a little saying on for the week.
I love following a lot of bloggers as I learn so much from each one of them as well as getting help and inspiration.

I love to receive comments so please at least say hey!
A great tip for sore throats and colds:
|My cup at home, just a demo.|
I had a little scratchy throat the other day at work and was afraid I was getting "IT"!
Bobby; the pizza girl, mixed me up a cup of this:
Hot water, lemon juice, cinnamon, honey, and white vinegar!
My soar throat was gone within 5 minutes!!!
It Really Works!
(She said sometimes it takes up to an hour). Thank goodness it didn't for me.
Have a great week!
