Hi! I’m Amy, and this is the repository for my thoughts on just about everything. I’m 50, and dealing with life at the halfway point. I’m a couple pf cats short of the Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit with just two, Cheezit and Quill, who will make periodic appearances through their antics and general cuteness. In my spare time (ha!) I am studying the concept of permaculture, and working on ways I can put these concepts into practice. I love growing things, but I’m basically pretty lazy, so any progress toward a self-sustainable landscape is A-OK with me. Learning Spanish is also on the list, as is finishing any one of the several quilting projects I’ve had going for the last few years. Volunteering, traveling, and setting things on fire round out my interests. For starters.
