About Me

At Home Simple is a long time coming. However, since I have had my first child almost 18 years ago (seriously, how can he be that old?! How can I be that old?!), I have wanted to work at home.

Now, I work at home, live at home, am simple at home, basically, I am almost always at home.

My kids will tell you I am boring, and weird, and crazy. But, I don’t think any of those things are bad in and of themselves. Life at home can get a bit boring, especially when you find yourself cooped up in the house for days because the weather is too cold to go outside for even a few minutes, but, I enjoy a simple life, not being on the go, go, go all the time. I am a bit weird and crazy, but, again, who isn’t? Being weird and crazy add’s just a bit of spice to one’s life doesn’t it? And really spice isn’t bad.

Simple living, is a way of life, a goal, a desire, a feeling in your soul that there has to be a simpler way to do all the things. At Home Simple embodies a simple life, at home. And really, home is where your heart is.

A few fun facts about me:

  1. My favorite 2 meals these days are buttered white rice with riced cauliflower, peas, and carrots and curried chickpeas- and- homemade bean, cheese, and rice enchiladas.
  2. I love flowers- my favorites are gerbera daisies because they are so big, colorful and beautiful and lilacs- have you ever smelled anything as beautiful as a freshly bloomed lilac?
  3. I love music and have a wide variety of tastes. Contemporary Christian, Pop, 90’s, R&B, Classical, Oldies, and top hits.
  4. Watching cleaning videos on You Tube, or hoarders on Roku really puts me in the mood to clean my home and purge items that need to be purged.
  5. I love watching movies and TV shows- including in other languages- I seem to gravitate towards Romantic Comedies and Crime Dramas.
  6. I speak Spanish- self taught and while I don’t know everything and cannot understand everything, I can usually hold my own in a conversation.
  7. Ever since Christmas 2019, we have been playing Yahtzee mutliple times a week, sometimes daily. Is there a Yahtzee league or Yahtzee anonymous? Because I may or may not need to join. My best score was in the 400’s with 2 Yahtzee’s and the added 35 points at top. My worst score was 76- yes, that was the total top and bottom score.
  8. Song’s or song lyrics normally end up coming out of my mouth several times a day. If you are a music lover, you would catch the reference. If you are not, you wouldn’t.
  9. My favorite items this winter have been my sweater, my blanket and my microwavable rice pack for my feet.
  10. I love ice cream! My favorite these days is Great Value Sea Salt Caramel.
