Day One – September 20, 2019

Things are pretty crazy around here! Just the right time to start a blog, right? 🙂

First, let me introduce myself: I’m Margaret Horak, and I’m interested in a lot of things. I have a husband, Ray, and adult kids, Kristin, Brenna and Barrett. I also have a cat named Carl, and 4 (as of now) chickens who lay way more eggs than we could ever use. If you’re lucky enough to be around when we have a surplus of eggs, you’ll be sent home with a dozen!

We have 5 grandkids: Breanna, Nash, Gabby, Indie and Saaya (aka: Trinity), who all live far away. So we get to travel to see them!

I’m retired from contractor work. I worked with a team of contractors for 18 years, writing courses for Microsoft. It was a lot of fun. I learned a lot, and met a bunch of nice folks along the way. I miss the work sometimes.

Now that I’m retired, I can work on what I really love, and that’s watercolor paintings. I love to paint, teach, show and talk about watercolor! I guess you could say it is my passion. I’ll be posting some paintings on this page, and stories behind them.

We also love to travel, where I can paint whatever I please. Yeah, it’s a tough life, but somebody’s go to do it. Am I Right?!

I’ll try to post every couple of days or so, about what’s happening in my life.

Thanks for following!
