About Me

I'm 43 and live with my husband, parakeet, cockatiel and a fish tank of freshwater fish.

I'm slightly obsessed with parakeets/budgies. My 5-year-old parakeet Minion is blue - send me budgie/parakeet things and I will do a happy dance!

I also love cockatiels, especially the "lutino" (white and yellow) ones. My adorable cockatiel Sophie is a year old!

Favorite Music

I love:

The Weepies, Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson,

I also love top 40, indie pop, hip hop and 70s/80s "soft hits/Yacht Rock" (think Jackson Browne, Cat Stevens, Al Stewart, Hall & Oats etc), and 90s rap/hip hop

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. I'm really into short story anthologies at the moment.

Birds! I love my pet birds, my patio is a wild bird haven,and I go on bird walks!

Genealogy! I'm obsessed! My people came from England, Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Embroidery & Crochet! I love making baby onesies, pillows, tea towels, throws and shawls!

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 (but not cooking)! Cheese, cheese Pizza, Sushi, Pad Thai, Eggs Benedict, Gum, Haribo raspberry candy, Indian food, 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. I just started an herbal tea garden.

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

Metaphysical I'm learning tarot, crystals, chakras, and other woo topics

Mindfulness and Meditation "Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know" Pema Chodron
