I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have lived here for the past 12 years. Before that it was Southern CA so yes I am a California Native. I love to knit and I am into photography, scuba diving and when I was much younger I was a surfer! Now I am the mother of a 9 year old son and wife to my dear husband and I work ridicules hours at a semiconductor company where among other things I am a Hazmat responder. So with the bells and whistles sound I get to put on the space alien suit and go where the nasty gasses are leaking!
So my son and I love to collect all things firefighter. Since I train with them and spend a lot of time with them and my favorite hazmat instructor (Hi Darrel!! Like he would read this!) Gave my son his first real firefighter gear we can't get enough!
I am currently contemplating a way to integrate my knitting and my scuba diving. I have heard of underwater basket weaving why not underwater knitting? Why not I have learned how to take my camera underwater now, why not knit? (Yes I am a nut, yes I am kidding about the knitting underwater and no I am not kidding about the underwater photography.)
I live in an apartment in the suburbs so I don't get much nature but I do love camping in the summer.
I live about 20 minutes from the Pacific Ocean. I grew up 5 minutes from it. I am an ocean freak! I love the ocean and can't imagine living any further away from it than I do now! So sea shells are cool, especially if they are from an ocean other than the Pacific. I am a scuba diver so you can tell I love the water. Maybe that is why my favorite color is blue. Nautical stuff is really cool. (Also especially nautical things from other coastlines!!)
Contemporary Christian Rock, Old 80's stuff, the Beatles and the Eagles
I love movies! Except horror and I am not a fan of stupid humor. (Monty Python and the like) Musicals are great and I love anything and everything from the sound of music to Die Hard although I am undecided about number 4....
I am a knitter mostly but I have a sewing maching and I know how to use it!
I was in the Marine Corps. I was a Sherriff's explorer. I was a Boy Scout. (Had do be because I was in the sherriff's explorer program.) I used to Repair weapons in the Military. I was in the Army Reserves. (Long Chauvinistic story!) I do research and development for a company that makes tools that make computer chips. I am a certified Hazmat Responder. My husband is 8 years younger than I am.
I love Christian fiction books. I am not a big fan of the romace style books. Mostly mystery and cop stories. I seem to eat them. I read so fast that the authors I love ( and there are quite a few of them! ) can never keep up!
