I suppose there is a side to me very few people know. It's a more domesticated, quiet, natural side than the one I suppose most people are familiar with.
For starters, I have this crazy desire to sew. I do have a sewing machine and I have used it, but I can't say that I am very good. I want to take a few classes and get really good. I want to try and make my own grocery bags, produce bags, totes, and maybe one day, skirts and sun dresses. Hopefully this will be something I can make the time to do. After-all doing something creative and actually making something from very little is completely satisfying.
I also LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook. And I don't mean just to cooking dinner every night, but experimenting. I love to try new foods, new textures, new recipes, new flavors. I love to just try new things for no real reason but that they look pretty, are fresh, and smell good.
I love to grow things. I have tons of plants not just at home but in my office and they are all flourishing (except that pesky parsley plant). I am so anxious to move into a home one day so that I can plant a small garden in the backyard. I've always wanted my own herb garden, tomato plants, potato plants, lettuce plants, etc... I know this green thumb will come in handy. After all growing your own produce reduces the need to shop in grocery stores... which also reduces packaging waste and transportation emissions.
