Having grown up in Northwest NJ - I left Rutgers College after my first year, moved to Houston, then various parts of the Southwest, coming to call Sierra Vista home. I took a haitus and spent 5 years in WI, but came back to SE Arizona in hopes of getting warm again. Divorced with 2 adult children, I retired from being a paralegal manager for a law office, after 30+ years in the legal field due to disability.
I am in the defrost stage. Winter is finally letting go and in another two weeks, I will be ecstatic with highs of 80s and lows of 60s. I don't like being cold, so I am snuggled under the blankies until it is above 75. I know, I am in AZ, but they call it the high desert for a reason - those overnight lows are still 40s.
Whatever the season I tend to walk to take care of errands or to wander the Farmers Market. I enjoy smiling at people and striking up conversations whether they are selling their products at the market or waiting in line at the post office.
I can mail my taxes tomorrow! (I procrastinated for quite a while.)
The herb garden is planted. Waiting to see if my 5 types of thyme will come back or if they are gone for good. Haven't been able to find cinnamon basil seed, but two types of lemon, genovese, sweet italian, and lime basil are planted. Cilantro, italian and curled parsley, orange mint, fennel, caraway, marjoram, 2 types of oregano - you get the idea.
Food, for me is less about what type of food and more about it being good food. I am a good cook. I like good Mexican restaurants, good pizza, and desserts, and I love chicken fried steak at truck stops I miss blackened redfish which I enjoyed alot in Houston in th 80s. I don't like sushi. Food is about flavor, and creativity, not price.
A good book
A reason to smile
Fresh herbs and quality spices
How soon will it be warm enough to take the top down.
YEAH! THAT TIME IS FINALLY HERE - IT'S APRIL IN AZ AND THE TOP HAS BEEN DOWN FOR THE PAST WEEK!!!! I AM SMILING.
What I miss most in living alone is having someone around to talk with about the everyday things - the news, movies or music, whatever has caught my attention - and I miss companionship - having someone to do things with especially roadtrips. Prefer it when someone else makes the coffee.
I can have fun cuddling on the couch watching a movie; enjoy sitting in the sun reading a book; be exhilarated driving down the road to somewhere I have never been (just don't believe in honoring the speed limit); be excited over cooking a meal together: or be content sitting on the mountainside watching a gorgeous sunset. For me, life requires some of each in order to have balance.
the possibility of interesting conversation, an enjoyable time with a vivacious, intelligent, witty, sometimes crazy, woman that you like despite the defects. :-)
Yes, the pictures are current! (From 2011 to the end of 2014.)
A note that doesn't fit anywhere else. If these are issues for you, please pass on by -
1) Not into religion and don't want to be lectured about it.
2) I believe adults should be able to love and marry whomever makes them happy.
3) My computer usage is limited so quick responses are not physically feasible. I check this site about once a month.
4) I don't want someone to try and "fix" me or "save" me or "think" for me. It's not your job, just appreciate me for who I am.
