In many ways I am the consummate homemaker. I like to cook, keep things clean but not fanatically, do laundry, and actually like ironing sometimes- weird, huh? My sewing skills include not only garments and costuming but basic upholstery and window coverings. When I say homemaking that can be quite literal. I can frame a wall, hang a door, install windows, lay tile and yes, paint. I would love to design and build my own home someday. I'm thinking off grid, in the city?
I live simply. I like things that are built to last and take care of them. I drive an older Volvo for that reason. I feel much the same about relationships, they should be solid, well put together, work well, and fulfill both partners needs. They should have some zip, but idle well and be ready to rev up and go, Oh, and be sexy.
I want to be upfront that due to a series of life events I am truly starting over. Certainly I am not alone in this. I had nearly perfect credit until about two years ago. This is all too common right now. I'm a hard worker and pretty creative, this will turn around. It would be fun to create something with a partner.
Having been on here previously and gotten rather exasperated I want to be very clear that if you are looking for a fan of Shades of Gray who wants to act out the books - don't stop here - keep looking. I know what I like and have no problem saying, "yes" and my, "no", means, No".
