I llive with my husband of 47 years in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina. We have three sons and one granddaughter. After nearly forty years of teaching children and adults with disabilities, I have traded in my teacher shoes for working as the Director of Education and Training at a community resource program that trains people with disabilities for competitive employment. My beautiful (at least I think so) granddaughter Vera is in fifth grade now, and has become a devoted crafter like her grandmother. Other than reading and crafts, I love to travel. I am a committed Christian and find Bible study, meditation and prayer helpful in making peace within myself.
My favorite music is a little of almost everything. I don't like violent themes or abusive language, though. Andrea Bocelli, Celtic Thunder, and Pentatonix are current favorites.
I love to read and am not too picky about what I read. I like historical romance, mysteries, spy stories, Robert Ludlum, John Grisham, Maeve Binchy, Michael Crichton, James Patterson, and George R.R. Martin (I have read all five volumes of A Game of Thrones!). I definitely am not in a rut!
Gone with the Wind, Dr. Strangelove, almost anything with Nicolas Cage or Sean Connery, the Bourne movies, Driving Miss Daisy, Schindler's List. Too many to mention all of them.
Card-making, ATCs, matchboxes, papercrafts, and crocheting.
I love all colors, especially pastels. I suppose my favorite--if I had to choose just one--is soft, buttery yellow. My favorite Christmas colors are red, green, and gold.
I will try not to join any swaps that might result in my being send a food item. I am diabetic (Type II) and was recently treated for congestive heart failure. I must limit carbohydrates, sodium, fat, cholesterol, and caffeine, so trying to find a food item to send would be a minefield!
