By now you have been introduced to my Sister, Maggee and her Creative Corner - a new part of my blog. I posted a caricature & bio of her that was a little difficult to read on here so I asked her if she could adjust the font so you could read it easier. I hate that I am requesting changes in her artwork like I am some kind of mogul needing just the right image for my world famous blog! Hrumph! I am just her bloggy, pesky older Sister, pestering her for my lowly little blog world. I am so happy that she is willing to make changes for you (and for me!).
So, here it is again...drum roll, please....
The one. The only. The Sister. er, um...Maggee!
The caricature is perfect. Maggee and dogs go together like chewing and gum! She is so good with dogs, cats, and any animal. She just has a heart for them. So much so, that she became a vegetarian as a young woman. (And I always thought she'd grow up to be a veterinarian!) If it has a face, she won't eat it. Imagine that - a girl raised in corn-fed beef country, whose Dad raised chickens and calves for eating - not wanting meat. I admire her knowledge of nutrition and health issues and her reasons for following such a lifestyle. I can do it on a part-time basis, but I admit I do like meat.
She has published an herb and spice poster which is chock full of information on which herb or spice goes with what food, complete with drawings so we kitchen rookies can tell which is which. She has ideas for publishing her own cookbooks. She would be great as a restaurateur, especially if she were the cook! But, she, like me, is no spring chicken (can I say that about a vegetarian?) anymore who can stand for hours on end. Something has to give and with me, it is usually my knees!
Our lives have taken different paths, but in our hearts we will always be Sisters. I was an Elvis fan, she loved the Beatles. I had a good start on my family before she had her daughter. We lived in different states. We've had our ups and downs like most families. Today, we are working together to bring you some of her ideas and my ramblings. We hope you will agree that this is a good thing. I hope you grow to love Maggee and her talents as much as I do!
