New update February 18: Good news! We are back in our house. I have to say that it is amazing what professional cleaners can do in a situation like we had. After being our of our house for 4 weeks, we are currently putting our house back together and feeling settled in. Thank you to all who sent well wishes and prayed for us. It was so appreciated. Now, back to swapping.
Update January 15: This weekend we had a house fire. We are all ok, but we can't get back into our house for awhile. I will post when things get back to normal but it will be awhile. Anyone who prays, we appreciate your prayers.
I have been retired from teaching elementary kiddos, in an emotional support program, for almost 5 years now! I still miss it, but I love having freedom to do other things that I love.
I am Gramma to two little boys 7 and 4, and a little granddaughter who is 2 1/2 yrs.old. and a foster grandson 10 mo, old. I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband, our little Beagle mixed pup, Angel, We live in a rural farming area. We're not farmers but love having a garden and raising some chickens. I also spend a lot of my free time sewing just about anything. Right now I am working on a block quilt for my spare room and some little outfits for my grand daughter.
I love hiking, photography, sewing, crocheting and making jewelry. Sewing is on the top of my list though. I am currently working on a block quilt for our spare room where my grandsons sleep when the visit. I also love swapping postcards, letters, small surprise packages, buttons, photo cards, and especially FABRIC!.
I love to read books but mostly in the winter. I love to cook and try new and interesting recipes. I have been gluten free and sugar free for over a year now and feel so much healthier for it. So if you are sending me recipes, keep that in mind. Thanks. I have three grown children, and even though they aren't at home anymore, I still spend time with them whenever I can. We are a very close family. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 45 years and we are happy happy happy, to this day.
Music, music,music I mostly listen to Bluegrass, Old Timey, old and new gospel, Swing, Country Swing, and Celtic. But I love to dance to old rock and roll and country. I love going to hear live groups. My husband is a musician and is in a Bluegrass band so we go to Bluegrass Festivals every summer. I also enjoy watching Austin City limits on Saturday night if we are home at 10PM.
I love to go to the movies and also watch a lot on Amazon Prime and Netflx in the winter. I like English drama and comedies. I like mysteries and detective movies.too. Not crime shows though. Recently watched Queen of Oowego, and Life of a King. Both about youth Chess players. I take my grandsons to the movies a lot too. I love going to movies on $5. Tuesdays!!
Let me know by message if you have not received my swap. I will make it right!! I would hate to get a low rating for something that didn't show up. I am faithful at sending. I love reading the notes in my swaps. I learn so much about people. So if you send me something I will definitely read it. Also, sometimes I get mail that I can't read the handwriting. That is frustrating. Thanks for being careful and taking your time.
