I have a son and a daughter who are off on their own pursuing their dreams. Neither are married and I have no grandchildren. That will happen when the time is right for my kids.
I am not retired yet, though I would like to be. In the meantime, I am still working an 8 to 5 job that keeps the roof over my head, food on the table and the animals fed. I have 1 dog (my best friend), two horses and 1 cat. I also see deer regularly in my woods and have seen elk, bear, moose and lots of squirrels , birds and other assorted wildlife. As I said, I love where I live.
In my spare time, I sing with the Spokane Symphony Chorale, read, ride my horses, play the piano and work around the property with the idea that I will leave it in better shape than I found it. Presently, I am planting a lot of tree seedlings and saplings (a bit of an arboretum) for the future. It is fun to plan ahead and envision the way things will look down the line.
But, I have been alone too long. It is time to have a special other person to share the good times and the other times. I like to cook and am more than passably good at it. I just don't like to cook for only myself. I like a good glass of wine or a glass of a good beer with my meal.
