About Me
I live in Washington completely surrounded by trees so I can watch wildlife and enjoy the peace and quiet. My children have grown and spread their wings. I’m mama to a black ShiPoo who butts heads with the mama deer. I garden but it is really hit or miss. But I keep trying because eating from your own garden is exciting.


I am purging my house and simplifying so the peace and quiet in my home matches the outdoors. I enjoy quilting and knitting and don’t get me started about genealogy. I write short stories and want to write more. If you are interested in my writing, check out Annie Grantham. I would love to hear what you think!

I have fibromyalgia and that colors my life with fatigue and pain. I keep track of my spoons and do what I can to improve my life.

Can I have a little privacy, please?
Can I have a little privacy, please?

I am a US Army veteran. I was a Navy dependant as a child so I don’t have a hometown, no deep “roots”.
