Nov 2021 I take pics of my swaps, and their envelopes, front & back, so if you’re missing a swap, I have a record of it. Please contact me if you haven’t received it. Thanks!
======================================= 🌸 🧁 💐 🌳 🍣 💕 🐈 🍟 👩🏫 🪴 🐝 🖼 🐛
I’m a former 6th grade teacher, but now work for a non-profit, mostly from home, just outside Richmond, Virginia. I have an independent 😀 & bright (but sometimes moody) teen and a kind, smart, & funny husband. He and I met in the local scuba diving club, and our kid is also certified. There’s another world under the water, and it’s so peaceful and beautiful!
Although I’ve lived in the South my entire life, I dream of living in a cooler climate and of snow falling on Christmas Day ❄️ . I fantasize about living in Colorado. I love snow! ‘Round here, 6” or more means school & appointments are called off and most people get an unexpected free day, which I LOVE! (Favs for snow day: a roaring, crackling 🔥 , baking, crafting, shoveling, napping, shooting pics of snow)
I read a newspaper daily and particularly enjoy Carolyn Hax , Miss Manners, Jumble, & now Wordle (online). Sometimes I like the news, but mostly read it because I feel obligated to be informed. This is an actual newspaper, not articles found through social media. I miss Dave Barry’s weekly column, Farside, and Calvin & Hobbs, but now laugh at Zits, Dilbert and Pluggers.
We live on a few acres so I enjoy seeing the wildlife, in particular the birds. I typically have a bluebird family in the spring & it’s exciting watching the full progression of empty nest box to nest, eggs, babies and their departure! I love trees and find bugs 🐛 🐜 🕷 & snakes 🐍 interesting. They’re around here all the time, so we get along.
I make an effort to live environmentally-friendly (e.g., I recycle, reduce, reuse & compost, try to reduce my use of single-use plastics, drive a hybrid)
🐈 I have 2 orange tabby cat boys whom I adore, Owen & Charley 🐈
coffee flavored candy & desserts, lattes, espresso, coffee cups, quotes about coffee, chocolate covered espresso beans, cute little demitasse cups... Think the Bubba Gump shrimp guy in Forrest Gump talking about shrimp...that’s me with coffee
comical items! To get an idea of my sense of humor, I find very funny:
*Ted Lasso * David Sedaris * Frasier * Atypical * Everybody Loves Raymond *Bob ❤️ Abishola
——————- even odd things like a tiny screw, tiny piece of satin ribbon, or an itty bitty feather. Doll house things like a tiny Kleenex box or a miniature book make me lose my mind!
I like tiny things, & sparkles!
Robert Llewellen’s photographs amaze me! robertllewellyn
