About Me

4/20/21-I should be all caught up from being sick the last week.:( If you are missing something from me, please let me know and I will resend. Sorry for any delays!

I'M BACK! You are all welcome.

Since I've been gone, I've scattered my mom's ashes, I've gotten married, had a PTSD flashback, been to protests, got locked down due to a global pandemic, got Covid and Pneumonia, recovered from them, and here we are! Ready to rock and roll!

And I have no allergies. Except for penicillin. But if you are sending me penicillin, then we probably have problems other than what I'm allergic too...

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, Quilting, General Sewing, pretty much any crafts that Grandma's like, I like. Except crochet. I can't figure out how to make anything with a crochet hook except a knot. I'm good at making knots.

Coloring, some paper crafting. I love decorating in my planner, I have a Silk & Sonder subscription.

Favorite Books

True Crime, Mysteries,Thrillers, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance (especially historical romance), YA. Pretty much everything except Westerns or Stephen King. I just don't get him. I also love reading cookbooks cover to cover and craft books.

I will always take gently used books. I love reading!

I like Neil Gaimen, John Connolly, Janet Evanovitch, Johanna Lindsey, Dean Koontz, Ann Rule.

Favorite Music

I don't always listen to a lot of music but I do like classic rock, especially older Tom Petty and the Hearbreakers, classical, Jazz, and Blues.

Favorite Movies

Movies: The Little Mermaid, Grease, Phantom of the Opera, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Jurassic Park, A Muppets Christmas Carol, Bridesmaids, Wonder Woman.

TV: Downton Abbey,Dr Who, X-Files, Buffy, any and all true crime shows/documentaries, The IT Crowd, Parks and Rec,

Pretty much always watching "murder shows" according to hubby.

General Favorites

Color: Red. Pink, blue, purple, sparkles. Rainbow. Everything except brown.

Animal: Dinosaurs. Dinosaur everything. From where I sit, I can see a dinosaur on my notebook, on my t-shirt, and as my profile picture on Facebook. :)

Drink: Coffee (all kinds, except decaf), Tea (Green, Black, Chai, Herbal), Wine (Local wines, White over Red)

Food: Tacos. Followed closely by peanut butter cups. Also Cheesecake.

Scent: Lavender, or Vanilla or Apple Cinnamon

Other: Rocks. I am an amateur geologist, and I love rocks and minerals. Feel free to send me some.

Random: Eeyore, Wax Figurines, Poetry and quotes, and flowers, especially Daisy's.

And don't forget Black Lives Matter.

Don't Like

Black licorice, heavy metal, westerns of any type, the color brown, decaffeinated coffee (gross, what's the point!?), and judgmental people.

All of these still stand. Will not change. :)

Most importantly

My two great loves.

My pet rats. We have 3 right now, Raisin, Lump and Belle. I am obsessed with them. 2 are hairless (Raisin and Lump) Belle is a furry girl. They are the sweetest pets.

And, I'm a Murderino through and through. My Favorite Murder is my favorite podcast, and I was devestated when Elvis passed away recently. (A cat from the podcast, not the singer)
