i found my way to cjane while reading the blog of "scott and carol decker" a couple that live in the same small town i do. on the blog i kept reading comments beginning with, "i found you by way of nie nie or cjane". i finally had to come see who these two were. i've been a fan ever since. cjane makes me smile. makes me laugh. makes me open my eyes and take it all in. and she's inspired me to finally explore my passion for photography--don't you love the photos she posts?
my name is mari (pronounced mary) i live in western washington. i have 2 grown sons. when i say grown i mean they have graduated from college and have happy careers. dylan, the almost 30 year old, lives in nyc. zak, the almost 26 year old, lives in seattle. i am craving grandchildren, but so far i have only been gifted with grand-dog named danny. i adore danny, the border collie/wolf, and i am happy to be his "grammy'.
i don't work outside the home. my husband has cancer and has been on chemo for 5 years--we are thankful for the research and the fact that as his cancer advances so does the research to keep it at bay. not gone, but the chemo fights a good fight and mr. roll is still here. this is good. we also have my mother, who suffers from Alzheimer’s living with us. while we have 2 caretakers who come in to help, it is a 24/7 job.
i love to work in the yard soaking up the vit.d, and enjoying the fruits of my labor in the meals i prepare. i love to cook. when i'm in the kitchen i pretend i'm a cooking show host and talk through all the chopping and stirring, etc. what can i say, it's fun.
blessing to you all.
