I prefer that people read my profile to see what I like & don't like & what I want-in my wish list-if they are assigned to me. I always read peoples profiles as a common courtesy-no matter what the swap says--so I have an idea of what the person likes. I don't appreciate someone taking the easy way out & just throwing their cast offs at me -with no thought or effort involved. My own opinion is that they shouldn't even be swapping with an attitude like that. I have been a victim of this a few too many times-so I added this right up front now -for all to see. I would never just send Anything & expect the person to be pleased. I don't think that way. I find it Rude & Unexceptable & Very Dissapointing ! I am a petite 5'3", have hazel eyes, & Med. brown hair. I have 2 girls & have been divorced for 30 years. I am a Born Again Christian. I go to a Baptist Church-but I do not consider myself to have any particular Denomination. I love to Cook, Bake, Garden, Do All Kinds of Indoor & Outdoor Crafts, DIY Projects, Decoupage, Mosaic, Sewing, some Embroidery, Picnics, BBQs, Walking on the Beach to collect shells, Trail Walks, Hiking, Camping, Fireworks, Trying New Things & Foods, Traveling, Exploring New Areas of New Towns, Meeting New People, Snowshoeing. I also just took up Canning . I recently moved from Pawtucket,RI to Woonsocket ,RI. Not by choice-the owner was selling the house & the new Owners wanted to go up on the rent & I could not afford that -so after looking for a while I ended up here -but with Housing that goes by my income. Hopefully I can get a 1 bedroom closer to Pawtucket or in it again after a yr. or so-& have already put in several more applications in the Pawtucket/Providence Area.

Well it's Feb. 6, 2015 & snowing again. Lightly but steadily. I just came from the P.O. Good Lord-I'd never get out for 1/2 an hr. -45 min . the line was so long & a lot w/pkgs. like me. I'll have to wait until Monday to send out my Bookmark swap & 4 Valentine Card swaps. I hope everyone is having a Nice Winter. It's been really Freezing here-Below normal temps. It snows then gets colder & freezes everything for weeks at a time. I went to feed the geese last week & there wasn't any to be found-which is quite rare; they've been staying around all year for many yrs., but they must have found somewhere else to go for a while. The pond was frozen solid & has been for quite a while now. I tried to make a Homemade Stollen for Christmas. Well the recipe said the batter would Feel Sticky. It didn't Feel Sticky-It Was Sticky!! I couldn't get it off my hands & it said to keep working in mo0re flour-which was quite an ordeal for me-I had to keep washing my hands -just to get them sticky again & no matter how much flour I added -it didn't seem to loose it's stickiness! I greased the bowl tossed it in & flipped it over so both sides were greased & covered it with a damp towel & waited for it to rise. And waited, and waited and waited some more -for 2+ hrs. It didn't rise! I looked at the recipe & saw that I followed the recipe to the letter & checked to see if the Yeast packet was expired. I had bought them a few months ago. No -everything fine there So I figured Maybe I overworked the dough-but I had to add the flour & I had a hard time because it was hard to work with, being so sticky. Finally I just split the dough into 2 loaves & tossed it into 2 pans & shoved it into the oven & baked them anyway. The birds had a feast!
Feb 10,2015. I finally got out of the driveway today,so I could mail out the bookmark swap & 4 valentine card swap & pay my car insurance! ( I marked them sent.) Lord , they don't even sand after they plow & plowing does no good! I have to get back up the hill & drive up the hill into my driveway into the parking lot. I hope I can make it-I can't afford a tow & AAA won't tow me into the yard! I really hate the winter here where I live now. I hope an Apt.-a 1 bedroom becomes available soon. I have an appt. in Pawtucket at the Housing Athority Wedensday at 3pm. but I think they are just updating their list. I had to cancel it last month because of the snow. We have more coming Thursday into Friday! I don't know how much more of this I can take. Ughhhh!
