AN EXTRA NOTE -- Today was the first of a 6-week plus series of radiation treatments for breast cancer following surgery in April. I plan to keep swapping as this is a real morale booster for me, but if things vecome difficult I will be sure to drop before it messes things up for anyone else. My thanks to all the swappers who have already sent me lots of good wishes and encouragement! Mother of 4 plus a "courtesy daughter", grandmother of 10, life member of Girl Scouts of the USA, retired teacher, married for 47 years to a wonderful man, call Alaska home (Univ. of AK/Fairbanks, '67). Currently living in Arizona, active in my church and with Girl Scouts although I no longer have a troop. Love to read, do counted cross-stitch, and travel. Please note this says "living" in AZ, not "loving" AZ. No offense to true Arizonans -- there is a lot to enjoy in Arizona with great people and fun things to do -- but it's just too hot here for someone who prefers -22 degrees!
Almost anything except heavy metal. Especially love Kathy Troccoli, Babie Mason, Point of Grace, and the Baroque period in classical music. And the Eagles!
Fried Green Tomatoes, The Silence of the Lambs, Driving Miss Daisy, and Day of the Triffids -- and most of the Disney classic animation!
all the Law & Order and CSI shows, ER, NCIS, House, and Medium (if it ever comes back). And The Mentalist. Refuse to watch any "reality" TV
Mostly cross-stitch. Getting fairly experienced at ATC's and love to see what I can create out of leftover junk. Lately I have been experimenting with zentangles and 3-D effects. Also some plastic canvas work, and painting murals on walls, especially for the grandchildren. I prefer "cool" colors, esp. greens and blues. I don't really like mustard tones (lived with too much of it growing up as my mother really liked it!)
One additional note! My first name seems to pose a problem for some partners, so I just want to point out that it is spelled correctly when it comes up with my address. It is Pamelia, with an "i" before the last "a" and is pronounced so as to rhyme with Amelia. I really love it because I was named for my grandmother, whom I adored, and it means a lot to me, so many thanks to all those who have spelled it correctly!
Also -- I have received several invitations to groups, which I do appreciate, but my life is simply too unpredictable, and my likes too eclectic, for me to ever want to participate in a group. I just am not organized enough! So thanks anyway, but my answer will always be no thanks.
