About Me

Life is telling me to simplify...I'll be inactive as of January, 2017 but hope to be back later!

Life is 10% what happens & 90% attitude!

I love the pleasure I receive & give through Swap-bot! It's a great way to make someone's day! I am rarely disappointed with what I receive in swaps, especially when I see the efforts someone made to go above and beyond.

Wife to Otto - Mother to 3 grown children - Oma (grandmother) to 7 grandchildren.

I am a Canadian & American (dual citizenship) - does that make me more of a North American!!

I wish I'd take more time to walk, hike & bike.

Hobbies

I enjoy learning how to do new things...hence, the many hobbies! And I have a wonderful craft room my dear hubby included in an addition to our home!

So, I enjoy... knitting - quilting - card making - embroidery (machine & hand) - tatting - crochet - etc. etc.

Love to listen to audio books when working on something.

Favorite Entertainment

Favorite Books!

I'm a frequent reader, often with several books going at once.

  • My Bible (still so much to learn)
  • Historical Fiction
  • Grisham, Coulter, Baldacci, Cussler
  • Biographies of people who's life left an impact
  • Bible Studies
  • Cookbooks, I read them & have way too many

Favorite Music!

  • Christian pop & gospel
  • Old Country & Rock (pre-70's)
  • Instrumental of almost any variety
  • Christmas!

Favorite Movies & TV!

I love a good movie that's not full of gore and foul language. Not a big fan of sci-fi, though. Musicals are great!

On TV enjoying... Amazing Race, NCIS, Elementary, Bluebloods. Also enjoy finding old series on Netflix to watch.

  • Purples & Greens, but really any color
