I live in a small town in Texas that has one blinking yellow light and a few stop signs. I have a fur child, Peaches. I taught public school for 33 years: home economics. I retired in 2014.
I like to crochet . I am currently working on pet mats for a local animal adoption center. I also make hats for chemo patients and cocoons for preemies.

The only time I really listen to music is when I’m in the car. And then, the radio station is set on country music or I may listen to cds. Most of those are either country or polka/waltz music from local bands. Polka music is ‘happy music for happy people’!
I like to read, mainly fiction. I have a small collection of books about pets! When I get one of those, they stay with me. When I finish with other books, I either donate or give to someone else. I also like reading personal stories from World War II.
I don’t watch a lot of movies. Even growing up, we never went to the movies. Living out in the country didn’t lend itself to being able to go to the movies. Now, if I go to movies, it will be for a romantic comedy. I don’t care for horror movies or sci fi.
My guilty pleasure is watching reality shows, such as Big Brother, Bachelor and Bachelorette, Survivor and Amazing Race. I always wanted to be a contestant on the Amazing Race (before they started doing those really difficult roadblocks and challenges!). I also like to watch Jeopardy and get really excited when I can know the question, especially the final question! Other favorite shows include House Hunters, Tiny House Nation, Texas Flip & Move and Flip or Flop, The Big Bang Theory and Two Broke Girls
. Favorite Crafts
I love to crochet. I make pet mats for local animal shelters, cocoons for preemies and chemo hats for cancer patients. I also make scarves, dishcloths, just about anything that isn’t too difficult. Let me crochet and watch television and I am a happy camper!
I used to make a lot of beaded items – jewelry, Christmas ornaments, etc. But I haven’t been doing a lot of that lately.
I have always had a fondness for paper crafting. Anything to do with paper makes me smile. Scrapbooking, journals, now pocket letters and trying ATCs – any of that makes me happy!
I also sew. I have been sewing since I was nine years old – that was a looooong time ago. I also taught sewing when I was teaching and that was my favorite part of the year.
I will try just about any craft. People would always ask me, “Why are you making that?” My answer would be, “To see if I can!”
I don't have a lot of dislikes and am pretty easy to please. That being said... if you would like receiving what you are sending me, than I will most likely be happy to receive it.
The only holiday that I am not fond of is Halloween. I don't like the ghoulish, creepy, etc. things that are associated with Halloween (including skulls and crossbones). If I participate in a swap dealing with Halloween, I would prefer the cute, smiley ghosts, bats, cats, etc. I can send the 'creepy' kind but I prefer to receive the 'cutesy' kind!
