I am 54 and married for to my very best friend for the past 30+ yrs. We have raised 3 daughters and have lived in the same home n New Jersey since the day we were married. Our youngest daughter is 27 and has a daughter of her own that is 10 who is special needs and lives at home with us, our other 2 daughters are married.
I have worked FT in the Municipal Court System for over 25 years and looking forward to retiring in the next few years..
I love black teas,ie: Irish and English Breakfast tea, Earl Grey. I am not opposed to trying any type of tea, but am not fond of lemon flavoring. If I choose to add lemon I add the real stuff. :) I have participated in tea swaps for the past couple of years and have found a few new favorites... Pukka - three mint tea it a true fav and if you combine it with a straight up black tea it is totally awesome. Really don't prefer one particular manufacture over another and was disappointed that David's Tea in Canada stopped producing "Stormy Night" :(
I love to plan and execute tea parties with a theme in mind for family and friends. I have had a summer tea, a harvest tea and even hosted a charitiy tea,that included a chinese auction, which was very successful. Very recently my DH just completed a 3-season room where I will be able to entertain my family and friends with tea, scones and tea sandwiches. He enclosed our front porch and we converted it into a Sitting/Tea room. As we both like to have guests and to entertain we can enjoy our guests in a bright and sunny room or I can have the ladies over for tea. I added bird feeders outside so us and our guest can enjoy nature up close and personal.
I love to scrapbook. I have completed several books so far and have a few that are on-going. I scrap with my friends and youngest daughter. We have attended organized crops and even organized our own weekend crops. It is a creative way to show future generations what we did and where we went and even get to know our personalities.
I camp as often as I can, we have traveled from Fla to Me and as far west as Ok. Love to Cruise and see different cultures.
