On Swap-Bot


I don't always get to my email, so prefer using the messaging here on Swap-bot.

One of my interests has been on the Jungian Psych courses I am taking this year. This month focuses on dream recall & interpretation. I keep a dream journal & do affirmations for dream recall. The questions each week are brilliant and if a person is ready, they do help you explore a lot of meaning in your life. Great feedback from other participants.

I use the rating system as a way to let you know the package came. If you have not been rated, I did not receive your swap. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR SWAP-BOT ID & the group even for WTA's.

About Me

I am retired, living in a small mountain valley town in southern California. I garden and & quilt. I listen to audiobooks and welcome suggestions. I practice peaceful living and enjoy the healing components that one receives here in Swap-bot.

My 2 grown Sons live in MN with Spouses & their growing Children. I stay in touch as much as possible through the phone, texting, Facetime and the mail service. I used to live on a small farm, and raised German Shepherds off leash for search & rescue. I have herb gardens and use a sq ft garden system for veggies.

I like to work with a different Spirit Guide every season for personal growth. For Summer 2017, I am keeping Frog who seems to have a lot to teach about releasing anything toxic in my life.

I am not a member of organized religion, yet am quite spiritual & have a contemplative practice.

Likes / Dislikes

  1. I like B&W Tuxedo Cats

  2. I enjoy feeding Birds & have 2 water sources outside for them

  3. Audiobooks

  4. 100% cotton that is for quilting not crafts (there is a big difference)

  5. Bergamot in Earl Gray Tea

  6. I like the herbs grown in my garden (mint, lavender, yarrow, rue, dill, basil, bee balm, sage, rosemary, artimesia, cilantro, lemon verbana)

  7. Specialty coffee

  8. Action and sci fi movies



  1. Oregano

  2. Nasty people

  3. Pushy people who try to convert me to their political or religious beliefs

  4. I don't wear jewelry of any kind any more. While I don't dislike it, I just cannot use it.

Wish List

  1. Light prints on white, white tone on tone 100% quilting cotton, any cuts or sizes

  2. Good hand or foot creams

  3. Affirmations

  4. Blank Journals

  5. House sox with grippers

I got your Daily Devotions letter today. Thank you for sharing! One day I've love to have gardens like yours. <3

Earth day Go minimalist...okay, maybe not to the extreme that some live by. Go through each room in your house and collect one or two things this earth day and either donate them to your favorite charity or a family in need who can use said items. We usually take items that we have no use for any more to a catholic resale shop, and donate items there...clothes, dishes, toys Chels has outgrown, furniture, etc. This helps with my fear of becoming a hoarder...especially on Earth Day, as we down size things with Spring cleaning.
