UPDATE 01/10/20 I have been out of commission for several weeks with bronchial pneumonia. My swap ratings are behind and I think I have missed one swap. I have messaged my partner and currently going through my mail (haven't even felt like looking at any of my surprises). I will be posting reviews and catching everything up. Thanks so much for understanding! If I miss something please let me know and I will correct ASAP!
I have started enjoying a slower paced quite life style. I enjoy cooking, training my new dog, spending time with grandkids, working with my online business and decorating my booth at our local flea market.
Music....I enjoy it all. Recently have discovered a new style that I didn't know much about. I have enjoyed discovering Abby the Spoon Lady and her singing partner Chris Rodrigues.
I enjoy listening to audio books during the day when doing busy work. I usually have at least two actual paper books going at all times. I keep a book journal and record what books I am reading and how many chapters I read each day. I am thinking about starting a journal for my audio books too.
I haven't had a lot of time for crafts but getting organized now. I like paper crafts and I want to learn to make a quilt. I enjoy needle art and find it relaxing during the winter months when I can't get out as much.
I mentioned that I enjoyed animals. I have three raccoons that I raised from just days old. They came to us from a local vet and we bottle fed them for about 13 weeks. They were tiny. They now roam free on our property and return at least once a day but usually twice to come inside to visit. If we are outside they usually come to play with the dog in the yard and get loved on.
I have a 3 month old Malinois. We are currently working on socialization skills and obedience. I get asked every day that I have her out in public if she is a German Sheppard. We will be going to Texas soon for training. I am excited to be working with her for a Personal Protection Dog. I think that she will excel in anything we try.
We sort of rescue animals, in the past we have raised a chipmunk and a possum. We have a long horn cow, her name is Oreo; and a bull that is half long horn. His name is Peanut. I can go out on our porch and call him and he starts to call back to me and will come to the house for scratching and a treat.
Not much that I dislike so here are some things that I enjoy:
Paper Crafting Needlework Stationary Cards Pens Hot Chocolate Recipes Recipe Cards Dogs Cats Quilting Materials Crochet Items Garage Sales Resale Shops (especially Goodwill) Flea Markets ( I keep a booth at two different locations) Estate Sales Auctions Reading Poems or Quotes Raccoons Working with my Malinois Painting projects
