I see many people have this disclaimer, so I will add one too. Please let me know if you haven't received anything from me, or need me to send postage because I didn't put enough on. I want this to be fun for me and the people I swap with, I don't want to be a problem. Just contact me if I need to make something right.
I'm a retired mother of boy/girl twins and enjoy getting things in the mail. I live near the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia with my husband, although I grew up in New Jersey. I say I'm in exile here, I would go back if I could afford to do that.
In my previous NJ life, I got married in 1991, and worked as a chemical lab technician, a useful career in industrial NJ. I worked for Anheuser-Busch in their baker's yeast plant; and then for Union Carbide, after their disaster at Bhopal, in R&D wire and cable. I really liked that job, but my husband was very unhappy in his job and got a job offer in Virginia. I was seven months pregnant with twins at the time, and unlike NJ, VA is not known for its industrial livelihood, so besides raising children and a couple of part time jobs, I haven't worked in years.
I'm an avid needleworker, I do cross stitch, needlepoint and surface embroidery. I enjoy sending and receiving postcards, I like almost all types of cards, even boring ones.
I read A LOT. I mostly like cozy mysteries, but have drifted into more hard core detective novels, and the occasional nonfiction nature book.
I look forward to meeting and swapping with everyone.
Food allergies: I don't have any life threatening allergies, but I avoid soy, dairy and peanut products.
Likes and dislikes: I'm interested in many things, and I'm a Gemini, so my likes can change in an instant. I'm really struggling with what to write here, I like lots of things.
A person can't go wrong with me if it involves black tea, anything to do with tea, interesting buildings, historical places, animals, gardens, sunrises and sunsets, nature, and funny sayings. I really don't want to discourage creativity, so remember these are guidelines, I'm interested in everything.
I'm currently reading mysteries with food and/or pets. I'm also reading North on the Wing, a homage to Edwin Way Teale's book on following spring across the country, from South to North. I'm cross stitching an Alice in Wonderland themed pattern, and one with a fantasy castle.
I don't like cruelty, anything with graphic violence, or jokes making fun of something a person can't help like ethnicity or a birth defect.
