I am a stay-at-home wife, formerly a homeschooling mom who has now graduated three children.
I am a new grandma! My son and his wife are the parents of a little girl. My husband and I call her the Bean; she is such a joy to us!
I enjoy reading, writing letters :-), studying the Bible, working on embroidery, and spending time with friends. I especially like to come alongside young women to help them in their journey of being Christian wives and mothers.
I am learning to use my time wisely as I am home by myself for most of the day. It's a learning process!
I like bird watching and have many feeders in my yard. I like to take nature walks with my husband.
I like Christian music, especially the group Third Day. Some of my favorites are Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns, MercyMe, Laura Story, Skillet, Josh Wilson, David Crowder.
I also like instrumental hymns. More and more I like listening to "quiet" music.
My favorite book, other than the Bible, is Jane Eyre. A close second is Lord of the Rings trilogy. I like Jane Austen so have read quite a few of hers. I also like Elizabeth Gaskell, author of Cranford, North and South,and others.
I also like to read Christian books (non-fiction) and some of my favorite authors are Jerry Bridges, Elyse Fitzpatrick, Elizabeth George, and Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
I like Christian biographies. It is such an encouragement to see how others have navigated the Christian life.
I also like older Christian fiction by Francena H. Arnold, Grace Livingston Hill, and Isabella Alden.
I've enjoyed Elizabeth George, the mystery writer, very much. I also like Sue Grafton and have read her alphabet murder novels up to "J". I like mysteries and am open to finding new authors. I don't particularly like "cozy" novels, though.
I also like books by Miss Read. I've read all her Thrush Green series but haven't read any Fairacre yet.
I am a big fan of classic movies. My favorite movie is Casablanca. I never get tired of seeing it! I like movies from the 30's and 40's. My favorite actors are Jimmy Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, Barbara Stanwyck and the like. Really anything before the 70's.
I also like some newer movies including The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings. I like dramas the best; movies that are more character-driven than plot-driven.
I'm not a big fan of comedies.
I love Masterpiece Theatre. Especially their Classic and Mystery programs. I really, really like a lot of the BBC shows. Some of my favorites: Grantchester, Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey, etc. They are so much better than American TV programs.
The main thing I watch in the fall/winter is NFL football. Fly, Eagles, Fly!
I like to make greeting cards using rubber stamps. I would say that is the main "paper" thing that I do. I have done some flip books, ATCs, Pocket Letters, and postcards.
Any kind of scrapbook and rubber stamping supplies are always making their way into my home. Craft stores are a dangerous place for me!!
I am use a Happy Planner!
I am a big Dr. Pepper fan but am really trying to cut back. I enjoy herbal teas and all the wonderful flavors. I guess my favorites are the berry family: raspberry and strawberry. I also like hot cocoa.
I like all kinds of food especially Mexican and Italian. My favorite snacks are crunchy kind but I do like a little chocolate now and then. ;-) My favorite candy is Reese's pieces or something sweet and sour.
I don't like anything with watermelon in it or the watermelon smell.
I really don't like anything with skulls or devils on them/nothing satanic. Not really into Halloween either unless it's vintage stuff like black cats and pumpkins. Nothing scary and no witches.
I don't really like too much scent on things either unless it's citrus-y.
Ephemera especially Christian ones--pages from prayer books, children's books, and hymnals.
Illustrations from old readers of the 40's-60's.
Vintage/old time embroidery patterns.
Anything related to the Philadelphia Eagles.
