I’m a mom of 11 (yes, you did read that right), which tends to make me very busy. I currently live in the US, but am hoping to change that little fact sometime in the near-ish future. More on that at a later date.
I have a lot of likes…Irish history, the Irish language, traditional Irish music (are you sensing a trend here?). I would love to say that I’m an avid reader, but since time doesn’t usually allow for that, I’ll have to be content referring to myself as an avid reader wannabe. I also like to cook (most of the time), Italian being my favorite for the moment. This all could change at any time, however. So check back regularly.
Edit! A lot has happened since I wrote this little ‘About Me’ blurb, way back when. First of all, I can’t believe that I’ve been writing, off and on, in this little blog for about 6 years now. That’s just amazing to me. And while I’m not always good at keeping up with things, I have enjoyed all that I have shared with you, my readers. Recently, I came back to Flosculi after a rather long hiatus, and read through many of the posts that I’d written back in 2007. How time has flown, and how different things have become in so many ways!
Just to edit a few things above, at this point, there will be no move outside of the US. I’m a bit saddened by this, but I’ll survive. Since I wrote that, I have been to Ireland twice and will be going back again this May (2013). Despite that bit of sadness, my life is still immensely blessed. Part of why we’re not planning on moving after all is because I am now a student (which you might know, if you are one of the readers who has read all of my postings!), and I’m planning on going to graduate school in Fall of 2014. It is my hope to be accepted to the Irish Studies Programme at Boston College. Cross your fingers….and more on that at a later date (I do need to apply first!).
My baby, who was still a baby when I started writing, is now seven. That, right there, is unbelievable. Time needs to cut back a bit on its marching speed. I am also a proud granny, which is the beginning of a whole new chapter in my life. Again, my life is very blessed.
So, pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea, and feel free to hang out here for a while, reading about the little flowers of my life. It’s always good to have visitors, old and new. And thank you for visiting! 🙂
