    I’m a retired USAF wife/ mother. Live on base at Tyndall. Love to keep my home nice and comfy. I love my pets – bassett hounds, tabby cat, and turtles. My oldest (21-female) goes to college and my 2 (14 &10 females) go to school while my husband is still in the USAF. I love organizing. But would love to pick up a hobby. Just don’t know what. My husband bought me a Cannon Rebel T3 camera and maybe would like to take up taking pictures but not sure. I need to find something to do that is more productive.
    I would like to build me a workcenter in the garage by the window???
    Maybe a woodwork area. Love to build and learn.
