My Obsessions

Reading! I've loved reading my whole life. I'm not too picky about books, but I tend to like character-driven books, post-apocalyptic (not sci fi), and non-fiction. Reading has been my favorite thing my entire life.

Animals! I volunteer to socialize cats at a local animal shelter, I love my pet birds, and my patio is a wild bird haven,and I go on bird walks!

Genealogy! I'm obsessed!

Embroidery! I'm a newbie and I love making baby onesies, pillows and tea towels!

Art! I love museums, abstract expressionism, Frank Gehry, Manet, Jackson Pollock, Rothko, still life paintings (especially by the "Dutch Masters"), Chihuly glass, Vermeer, Frank Lloyd Wright

History! I love the Tudor era, Queens (historical English royalty, esp Queen Victoria, Tudor Queens, Queen Charlotte, Marie Antoinette), old cemeteries, documentaries, the Gilded Age (Vanderbilts, Astors, etc)

Eating and drinking (but not cooking)! Cheese, Wine, Vodka, Gin, Martinis, Cheese Pizza, Sushi, Pad Thai, Eggs Benedict, Gum, Haribo raspberry candy, Indian food, Napa, Mashed potatoes, Jelly Bellys. I’ll eat anything that isn’t guts or super spicy.

Gardening! I want a large flower cutting garden. Love dahlias, moss, ferns, streams, glads, tulips, hyacinths, and flowering vines.

Travel! Fav places are: Oregon, Seattle, NYC, East coast leaf peeping, Japan, Paris, London, Italy, Napa, northern California, Costa Rica, New Orleans

Yoga/Mindfulness My goal for 2017 is to do more of both.

Penpals If you have a lot of similar interests, drop me a letter! I love penpals!

Comment: Your postcard will work wonderfully in my office! And it fits the theme of one wall where I have some other "space" themed shots as well as the picture of my children and I in front of the space shuttle :)
