1. i am a great cook. growing up, i loved watching my mom cook. she is the best cook i know...better than most restaurant chefs. she would make these elaborate meals and would spend hours on them. of course, we hated them as a child, because they weren't grilled cheese or kraft macaroni. but now, i sure do love a family meal at mom and dad's. i learned how to cook from my mom...and it's not anything you can get out of a cookbook. like my mom, i can put together a great meal from what is in the fridge. i never measure, rarely consult cookbooks, and usually know what to add to make something better. so far, my kids agree that i am a good cook. we'll see how they feel in a few years!

3. i am crafty. i love a good craft. i wish i had more time to do all the things i would like to. i am constantly pulling out pages from country living or martha stewart maganzines. i have a file box full of crafts that i want to do. time and patience don't allow me to do them all. i have always said i have an overabundance of patience for people, but when it comes to a craft...it needs to be able to be finished in a matter of hours. this is why i don't knit or quilt. i need a finished result! but, when i put my mind to it, i can craft a few pretty cute things!
