More than one person has called me a Renaissance woman: I’m working
on my 1925 bungalow, so I dabble in light carpentry, painting,
electrical, plumbing and plastering. But then I clean up right
nice, too, and can be downright classy when I want to. I have
cowboy and hiking boots as well as strappy platform sandals and
purple high heels and the clothes to go with them.
I love "costume" dramas and British humor. I like all kinds of
music (except rap), theater, museums, art, technology, canasta,
historical people places and things. I love to dance.
My friends think I'm hilarious, tho' I can be a bit reserved with
strangers--but once I get to know someone, we have a grand
I'd just like to add...
Living alone allowed me to fall into some bad habits--mainly around
becoming a book-potato. So my fitness level and weight aren't what
they need to be... You should be able and willing to
coach-cajole-push-whatever to get me up and active again. I'll make
it worth your while--I promise!
I have advanced degrees in biology (environmental science and
horticulture) and adult education. I'm not squeamish or afraid of
mice, bugs or snakes or much of anything else (except falling from
heights accidentally or on purpose). I'm currently in a
certification program for therapeutic massage--is it possible to
ever stop learning? I think not!
If it's outdoors, I'll probably like it, no matter the place or
time of year. I would like to see more of the U.S., especially
Alaska, the upper plains and western mountains. As far as foreign
travel, the British Isles, Germany, Australia and Canada hold the
most interest for me.
