About Peggy Woods
The countryside of Wisconsin was the setting of my home when I was a child. Fields with milkweeds and wild daisies had all types of birds and butterflies frequenting the site in the summers. Nearby woods presented wonders for us to explore. Shafts of sunlight illuminating the ground through the trees presented a constantly changing picture. Tree climbing was not only for squirrels and other creatures. My two brothers and I became expert tree climbers!
My parents and grandparents moved to McAllen, Texas during my teen years. The semi-tropical climate was quite a change from the distinct four seasons of the year up north! We were amazed but appreciative of plants such as bougainvilleas, hibiscus and poinsettias growing in the ground year round.
Houston, Texas has been home for most of my adult years. The Methodist hospital operating room in the middle of the Texas Medical Center was my very first job as a nurse. It was exciting and challenging!
I have also had many volunteer jobs through the years. Some of them involved working with the Ronald McDonald House and the Houston Symphony League. My longest job was that of a volunteer counselor for a local assistance ministry.
My husband and I love this cosmopolitan city filled to the brim with venues of all types. From the arts to sports and everything in between, this 4th largest city in the United States has something for everyone. Watch out Chicago! Houston will soon become the 3rd largest city in the nation!
In well over four and a half decades of living here we have discovered so many wonderful places. We are still to this day discovering new locations and items of interest. I hope to be able to showcase some of them here in this blog.
