I'm an elderGoth, part Asian, part Spanish and part Caucasian, married, mother of 5 cats and some fish. My husband and myself used to run a small greenhouse/nursery, but that failed. We also do house painting, gardening, and anything else we can find work doing. Husband just got a job at Walmart, doing maintenance. I do garden writing, and hopefully, someday, other writing, as well as doing crazy and art quilting, sewing, remaking and repurposing things, and making beaded jewelry. I grew up in Los Angeles, spent several years in San Diego,and have lived in north Idaho for 26 years now. I have almost finished faux finishing just about every room in this house. It is, of course, being decorated in Goth style! I am a liberal, a pagan and a witch.
I suffer from a variety of chronic illnesses (and get passing viruses VERY frequently due to a poor immune system) so I end up with a lot of posts whining about how I feel.
A Cast of Characters for my journal:
Tim- common law husband of 21 years. A much better deal than the first husband.
George- Tim's father, 84 years old, lately went through some very bad health problems and almost died. He has been like a father to me for all these years. Owns the property we live on and has a log house here, but spends a lot of his time over at his girl friends place in the Tri-cities. R.I.P. June 22, 2009
Chris- Tim's brother. Has small house up on the hill behind us.
Sideshow- oldest cat, black and white tuxedo Manx with six toes. RIP March 14, 2013 Banshee- middle cat, my darlingest baby sweetheart. Long haired black. Natasha- Formerly known as the youngest cat, abandoned by her feral mother on our doorstep. Bottle raised her. She's insane. Silver- Next to last addition (he is younger, but not the Youngest Cat referred to in my journal to this point). Grey male dumped in a friend's yard when he was about 6 weeks old. At first he was a lap kitty, but Banshee adopted him and now he only plays and sleeps with Banshee. *sigh* Luna C.- fluffy gray female. She was abandoned when Colin's neighbor moved away. He couldn't take her in because he has an older, chronically ill cat that pretty much hates all cats. So he paid to have her checked out medically and now she's ours.
