Three years ago I left the biology classroom to begin a new life: retirement!! These days I read, spin, knit, and weave in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled cats. In August 2014 I was diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome and limited systemic sclerosis in addition to my ever-annoying Raynaud’s disease. In early 2016 I developed lung disease. Wow. The adventure continues.
