Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hi, everyone! Welcome to Living Outside the Stacks, my little corner of the bloggy world. Let me tell you a little about myself…

My name is Daenel, pronounced Day~nell. I don’t know what my mother was thinking. I’ve been married for seventeen years and have five children and three grandchildren.  We have a dog named Squeekerz who would sell out the family for a slice of bread or a box of Girl Scout Cookies {Shortbreads}. I’ve been blogging since 2007 (!) and I’ve written about a variety of topics ~ librarianship, my family, my faith, crafting… In the last few months, I’ve gotten into photography.

I have mad crazy love for monkeys and an irrational fear of birds and cats.  It’s best not to delve too deeply into that but let’s just say the bird thing stems from living in Italy for several years and, um, cats jump ~ it freaks me out. 

I enjoy kicking back with a cup of coffee and watching television when I have down time.  My favorite show is Scandal. Seriously, have you seen that show? Kerry Washington is working it all kinds of ways, right?  I also enjoy getting caught up in historical mysteries. Brad Meltzer, call me. 

I invite you to look around and make yourself at home.  Feel free to look through my photo albums, listen to some music, grab a book from my library or just wander around my blog and leave some comment love.

I’d love to get to know you better, so please join me on Facebook {click here} or talk to me on Twitter {click here} and, just for fun, answer the question below:
