I love vegetable gardening and perennial gardens. I have a new interest in painting rocks and the therapeutic benefits of doing so. I also love being outdoors in the summer bicycling, motorcycling, walking, and snowshoeing in the winter months. I love lifting weights as I age for strength and flexibility purposes.
