Well, the last time I posted an update we were starting the process of moving to Oregon. We did that at the end of 2019. Since then, we have had all the pandemic stuff, plus wildfires, a summer with heat waves, and a cold snap which left us without power for over a week. Add to that all the usual moving into a new to us be actually old house and there hasn't been much time for Swap-Bot or anything else. So, I am starting slow with one PC swap. Here's my personal stuff, with updates. Mother of 4 plus a "courtesy daughter", grandmother of 10. The oldest one and her husband now live and work in Boise, ID, and they presented us with our first great-grandchild last summer. The youngest is now 10, and in fourth grade. I am a life member of Girl Scouts of the USA, as is my husband. I'm a retired teacher, married for almost 57 years to a wonderful man. I call Alaska home (Univ. of AK/Fairbanks, '67) and try to get back there whenever possible. We are getting settled in a new church home and a new community, although the pandemic has kept us from getting to know very many people yet. Love to read, do counted cross-stitch, and travel. We are really enjoying Oregon and the cooler weather -- even the rain after living in Arizona for almost 40 years.
Almost anything except heavy metal. Especially love Kathy Troccoli, Babie Mason, Point of Grace, and the Baroque period in classical music. And the Eagles!
Fried Green Tomatoes, The Silence of the Lambs, Driving Miss Daisy, and Day of the Triffids -- and most of the Disney classic animation! And I am now adding I Am Legend, thanks to a grandson who said we had to see it. And Wild Wild West -- I think maybe I have become a Will Smith fan!
All the Law & Order shows, NCIS and the spin-offs, although the original is still the best. And Jeopardy (RIP Alex) and Wheel of Fortune! And Call the Midwife which we watch with our older daughter and her husband, who also live here.
Mostly cross-stitch. I enjoy ATC's and try to use "leftovers" to create 3-D effects. I also like zentangles, and often make up my own patterns. Also some plastic canvas work, and painting murals on walls, especially for the grandchildren. I prefer "cool" colors, esp. greens and blues. I don't really like mustard tones (lived with too much of it growing up as my mother really liked them!)
One additional note! My first name seems to pose a problem for some partners, so I just want to point out that it is spelled correctly when it comes up with my address. It is Pamelia, with an "i" before the last "a" and is pronounced so as to rhyme with Amelia. I really love it because I was named for my grandmother, whom I adored, and it means a lot to me, so many thanks to all those who have spelled it correctly!
Also -- I have received several invitations to groups, which I do appreciate, but my life is simply too unpredictable, and my likes too eclectic, for me to ever want to participate in a group. I just am not organized enough! So thanks anyway, but my answer will always be no thanks.
Finally, I am now almost 5 years past my last visit with Oncology at the Mayo Clinic, although I do go back once a year for mammograms, as they have all my records. I celebrated my "survivor" diagnosis with a butterfly tattoo -- butterflies symbolize resurrection! And for everyone out there, a piece of relevant advice: GET YOUR MAMMOGRAMS!!! I am definite proof that early detection not only improves the survival rate, but it can make the treatment much less difficult! Take care of yourselves -- I hope to swap with many more of you in the future!
One last note for the Hot Drink and a Note Swap -- I drink just about anything except chai tea, and I love to try new things. I am looking forward to seeing what comes!

Here's a kitty of your own shipped all the way from Texas!!
Hey, I really received your address in the swap! :D I'll send the recipe at the weekend :)
And I'm happy that you both found that song interesting :)
You're one of my partners for the "What's in a name? PC Swap" and I wanted to comment on your profile because you call Alaska home. :) I was born, raised, and currently live in Alaska. Anchorage to be exact. I adore it here and like you, I prefer the cold weather! My dad actually lives in Arizona.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi in a comment since my postcard only has so much space, haha.
I love the name Pamelia, by the way. I don't think I've ever heard it pronounced the way you described before.
Happy swapping and hugs from Alaska! :)
Hee hee hee. Thanks again!
Sharing this pic I recently saw at the local canter center when I took my friend for her last radiation treatment. Hope you are feeling lost better and healing!
