Hi there! My name is Sarah Jane Humke-Mengel (yes it is a mouthful to say, especially when you’ve been drinking!). This is a blog about things that happen in my day-to-day life as well as musings about what goes on around me. Things that can happen in my day-to-day include (but are not limited to):books, cats, computers, crafts, crochet, dogs, duct tape, greenhouses, happy hooking, horticulture, international moving, knitting, letter writing, parents, plants, poop, school, spinning (like to make yarn, not sweat), travel, University of Florida (see school), weeding, wool and work. I started this blog primarily to keep in touch with all of my friends and family as I made the move from Apopka, Florida to Ivinghoe Aston, England and now to somewhere in the great state of Iowa. If you have stumbled upon this blog and you don’t have a clue who the heck that I am, don’t worry about it, if you are interested, keep reading! I’m also putting this out there so that maybe others won’t have to go through some of the searching that I have had to in order to make such big moves.
So, about me…. I have 3 cats and 3 dogs. I have a degree in Environmental Horticulture with an emphasis in Nursery and Landscape Management from the University of Florida. Iowa is my home state, I lived there from birth until I was 19 and my parents still live on a farm there. I spin, crochet and knit and I also read, a LOT!
Please feel free to post comments about things that I have written about. It is great to know when people are reading it (plus, you may know something that I don’t [not an altogether uncommon occurrence] and it may help grow EVERYBODY’S knowledge!)
