The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my family and my friends. I like to see them happy and enjoying their lives. For this reason, dinners and get togethers are often at my house. I cook too much so that everyone takes home food. My house is clean, with space made for people, and I have plenty of activities for everyone to do.At other times, I will do for family and friends what I am able to do. Their joy makes me happy!A second passion would be teaching. Some people don't understand it, be little the profession, think we have it easy. In truth it can be the most rewarding experience of a lifetime. Everyday I get to make a difference in someone's life.
I typically spend my leisure time
When leisure time is available I love to curl up and read a good book, let my imagination escape to a new place and be a new person. I can totally get lost in a good story.A second leisure time activity is to travel and take a great vacation. Orlando is a great family vacation spot, so much to do and see. I enjoy theme parks, zoos, museums, theatre, and more.If leisure time is limited to just a few short hours, it is always great just to spend some quality time with loved ones: a walk, a movie, a quiet talk on the couch, a board or card game, a swim at the pool, etc.

The last book I read and enjoyed
The most recent book that I have read was The Good Guy by Dean Koontz. I enjoy his books as well as James Patterson, Evanovich, and a few others. I enjoy the mystery and excitement of these types of books.
