Hello and welcome!

Thanks for reading my blog, which is most often written from my laptop in central Minnesota, USA. I am not a native mid-westerner, though. I was born in Seattle, Washington, and grew up in the Ballard neighborhood during a time which I call ‘Seattle Before Starbucks’. Upon graduating from Holy Angels High School, I moved with some friends to Minneapolis, MN, where I met the man who was to become my husband. We  married on 1/1/1972, and were blessed with two children, a son, and a daughter. I returned to school in 1980, this time in Marquette, MI, and became a registered radiologic technologist.

Blogging came into my life around 2005. Thyrkas’sblog.wordpress.com, subtitled *anchoring it down with print*, came to be in 2008 and is primarily about day to day events in my life, but also has a number of book reviews.

Thanks for stopping by to read the blog. I look forward to reading your comments!
