There are usualy two or three books around my house marked where I stopped reading. I always have a couple books going at once, sometimes three. I enjoy nonfiction books about language history, books about how our brain and genetics work and books about the formation and downfall of cultures. For fiction, my first choice is Appalachian stories with happy endings. I like my fiction to have beautiful, descriptive prose with well-developed characters. I love picturesque descriptions of everyday people doing everyday things.
My garden and I are in the Mid-Ohio Valley of West Virginia where I live on a hill top in a log home in a small field surrounded by woods. My husband, Jeff built the first part of our home by first taking down an old log home then rebuilding that home right here were we now live. Together, then we have took down a couple more and put them up around our home. The newest part of our house is made up of a log cabin that Jeff re-notched, parts of what was the oldest house in our area, and pieces that he found in an old barn that he tore down. The ceiling in the "new" section still has the blue paint on it from that old house.
We' added other buildings around our hill top. I'l add a description of them later as I add to this page.
