Welcome to my profile - I am Tracy, a social worker, who just left office life in exchange for therapeutic foster parenting on a small farm just 10 minutes drive from the city center. Love it!! Yesterday, I just bought a mini herd of Highland Cattle including the old red matriarch, Daphne, and a black girl, Black Betty, and both of their yearling calves. Such beauties. I have 4 goats, a lamb, 3 dogs and chickens. Had to get rid of the donkey as he was terrorizing the goats. I cannot wait till spring to work on farm aesthetics and fencing. For 2022, I plan to lay brick on the side of the Old Shop and build an espalier feature wall. The cultivated gardens on this property are so beautiful and well thought out by the previous owners. I have ordered a bunch of globe thistle seed as it does well in poor soil and I am in love with its geometric flowers which I hope to sell.
Things that energize me:
visual arts!! , friends, Friendship Booklets/Sheets, architecture, ATC’s, antiques, boring-ass meetings, printmaking, outdoors, quirky things, nature, travel (wide and far - off to Uzbekistan in March!), spice! cooking, tea, snacks, food security, black humour, beer coasters from your area, community development, birds, mammals, social innovation, mythology, history, literary fiction, linguistics, hair metal bands, museums. I don’t get offended so feel free to send edgy stuff or nudes.
I don’t feel ancient but any means, but wow I am 51.😂.
Wish List: Postcards - I like whacky ones, downtown innovation, vintage/antique, black and white, artsy, poetry, free cards, historic, famous people, galleries, etc Stereographs - collect these💗 ATCs Knorr and other instant soup packets Tea Socks Penpal letters - always interested in your hobby stuff, personality flaws, travels. Vintage or antique anything Old portraits. Seeds Friendship Books Real feathers found in nature Teeth, skulls Bookmarks Stationery Earrings Return address labels. Postage stamps - new or used Coins Low denomination paper money Ephemera
I don't care for cutesy/girlie things, child reward stickers or “manufactured-type” scrapbooking stuff. I am not religious but still appreciate religious symbols.
Some of the best things I have ever received through swap-bot swaps are: a petrified clam, a feather from a great horned owl, ATC’s, foreign coins, an Egyptian bookmark, quills, a hand-made anti-racism booklet with illustrations. Thank-you!!!!
