I'm a suburbanite by birth, country girl by choice. The pace and lifestyle out here suit me just fine. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be able to integrate back into the suburban world, or if I'll retreat to some remote off-grid mountain abode in later years. I mention my lifestyle because I feel it is a marginally apt means of beginning to describe myself. I'm somewhat offbeat and, while I get along with most people and enjoy going into town sometimes, I find many things that pass for normal in our society to be either depressing or baffling and would rather just do my own thing.
I like to cook and am probably better at it than any of my other hobbies. I make a good curry. I raise laying hens and am a bit of a crazy chicken lady. I'm gradually improving my self-taught photography skills. I like to shoot and would like to try out archery sometime. I play the recorder (poorly). I am a horrible beer snob and very much enjoy geeky talk about it and finding new beers I haven't had. I still have a lot to learn.
I'm married to a pretty cool dude (check him out: loredous).
