I took a short break from swapping for a while, I am back and have updated my profile.
I am a Wife, Mother, Grandmother, now retired. ;0 Staying home and it has been an adjustment, but I am really starting to enjoy it, at first it was hard to relax after working all my life not having to be some place at a certain time ....
I live 2 miles from the place I grew up as a child. I love that, but dislike seeing the things I remember such as the orchard and farm land turned into residential neighborhoods.
I love all types of music except heavy metal, rap and hiphop. Depends on the mood I am in as to which I am listening to that day. Love to read, suspense, and romance, like Nicholos Sparks and John Grisham. I have read the Hunger Games series, and Divergent series (just to keep up with my granddaughters ;) Favorite old movies are Gone with the Wind, and Singing in the Rain. I haven't been to the movie theater in a while.
I am a true fan of Downton Abbey, and Doc Martin, and like to watch, Nashville, Dancing with the Stars and BlueBloods.
I am still collecting postcards and would love one from every state. With the states name on it. I only have a few so far, I have Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Indiana, Oklahoma, Alaska, Pennsylvania, California, Nebraska, Hawaii, New York, Virginia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Texas & Colorado ..... Thank you savannasmiles for Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio,and Mississippi. only 32 states to go :)
It would be great to collect them all. I will up date my list if I get new ones. :)
My favorite thing to do is garden, flowers and vegies, and fruits though I do not have enough yard for fruit trees. Blueberries and Strawberries ... I want to put in Raspberries someday soon.
I love trying new types of tea, and have a favorite tea place in Tulsa, OK. My Sister and I are close, so we go there quite often after shopping.
I have 5 chickens, SnowBird, Brownie, Sandie, Myrtel, and Gustiphore The rooster that reside in my back yard pen, and 2 very spoiled house cats, MissyMae QuestionMarkTail and AllieLouise TippyTail.
My yard though small is a natural habitat for all creatures, birds, box turtles, lizzards, bunnies, even the occasional opossum, raccoon and a bobcat now and then, there was a field behind my house where coyotes play and come up at times looking for a meal. Until dozers and other dirt machines came in and cleared all the trees and are now making roads to put in a housing addition, another sign of progress..Hmmm I hope my new neighbors like to hear roosters crowing. ;]
Favorite colors are All colors but especially, blue and green, all earth tones and beach colors.
I like to cook, and still do some sewing, I made extra cash making wedding and brides maid dresses when I was younger, and have made several quilts.
I have mostly gone over to paper crafting now. Many of my friends are crafters and they managed to get me hooked about 3 years ago. My favorite things are cards and ATCs.
OTHER THINGS I LIKE:
The Ocean and the color of the water and beach, and picking up sea shells.
(even though I live no where near this scene) We traveled to South Padre Island for vacation a year ago, and I fell in love with the place.
My morning walk. Listening to quiet. Being involved in my church. We still have those "sunday dinners"
Helping my 82 year old parents, (even though they are still very independent) I am blessed to have them with me still.
Meeting new people and making new friends.
Having family around, and teaching my grandchildren new stuff. I love the art they make for me, and have several pieces framed. I love Christmas, but do not like the grench, or scrooge.
I have noticed on other profiles people list their dislikes. Though I have some, I trust those who read my profile will be able to judge.
I have no issue with flakers and non raters. I hope I never will, Please let me know if you do not receive my swap item, I am the type of person who keeps my promises unless there is a very good reason, and will always resend if for some reason something goes wrong.
