About Me

I am a wife to one special man (DH), mother of one son (DS), two daughters (DD#1 and DD#2), grandmother of six grandsons, two granddaughters and twin brat cats. I am a lover of all things cat. Knitting and spinning take up about 75% of my thoughts and actions during the day. If I didn’t have DH and the kitties it would probably be more like 99%.
