What are the small essentials that make life more comfortable?

I don't like to be too busy in my life, so, time to breathe is important to me. Also, I am a WHOLE food, REAL food enthusiast, so, really good food is essential to a comfortable life. Also, chocolate. Chocolate everyday. And, rich, dark, strong coffee.

What are your favorite snacks?

Cheese & crackers (really good cheese, though, like Brie or smoked Gouda), bing cherries, and any sort of dark chocolate.

What do you do to unwind?

I like to unwind by crocheting, spending time with my grand children, and going to thrift stores with my husband.

How could a parent volunteer help you most?

A parent volunteer could help me most by filing documents or organizing the clothing donations.
