Books & Such
My literary family (Ben & Terry) and friends (Bob T.) often ask me what I’m currently reading. Here’s a sampling of what’s currently on my bookcases. Or, I should say, here are the books I’ve read that are worth mentioning:
While these are the “best of” books I’ve read so far this year, I’ve also read books on growing and caring for roses, gardening in general, how to grow and harvest herbs, and perused several cookbooks (especially a fabulous Chinese cookbook). These topics have become of interest to me since marrying Teddy, who can make anything grow and has become quite a good cook.
Happy Reading to all you bibliophiles – you know who you are!
By profession, I am a librarian and musician. I hold a Bachelor of Music in piano performance from Southwestern University (Georgetown, TX); a Master of Music in Piano Pedagogy from Texas Christian University (Fort Worth, TX); and a Master of Science in Library & Information Sciences from University of North Texas (Denton, TX). I am fortunate to earn my living while working in my two chosen fields. I am a librarian for a private Christian school in Fort Worth, and serve as an accompanist for a Methodist church in southwest Fort Worth where I also maintain a small, but select piano studio and live with my beloved Chihuahuas, Domino and Lady. On March 15, 2010, during my Spring Break, I married my high school sweetheart, with whom I reconnected during the 2009 holidays -- thanks to the Internet! After over 36 years, we've found our love once again! "First love, second chance" definitely describes us!!!
On March 31, Teddy and I welcomed into our home another Chihuahua! Lady is a 2 year-old, short-haired, fawn colored, female Chi. Thus far she is living up to her name and is a sweet Little Lady.
Our family is now complete!!!
