I am a bit of a geek. Most days I am looking at cells on my microscope. I also love to read. Perhaps these are not great ways to meet men?
I think that food is one of life's great pleasures. I especially love to cook for my friends. Cooking for multiples is always more fun than cooking for just one person. I find that I really enjoy reading about cooking, food, and wine. I look forward to every new issue of Food and Wine in my mailbox. I have been experimenting with baking my own bread, mostly because I can't find many breads that I like at the store. Plus I have found that kneading dough is very therapeutic.
I enjoy being outside and I am not the type of woman who cares if her hair gets wet. I also do not need to put on my "face" before I will leave my house. This is not to say, however, that I don't clean up nicely. Normally I really like to garden but I hardly planted anything this year except lettuce and catnip. Thus, my cat and I are each getting our greens. Last summer I spent a lot of time at the beach swimming, reading, and napping. This year, however, the weather has been so chilly that I have not visited yet. I also like walking around Durand Eastman park. They have a great botanical collection, and there are good birds to be seen and cool mushrooms to be discovered. I can always find something new there. I bought a bike last summer and had a fantastic time exploring Rochester. Someday I will escape my car and manage a bike commute to work. I need to master some basics first, however, like patching a flat tire.
Last year I made a friend who helped me rediscover how much I love music. Rochester is such a great town to hear live music and find new bands! My favorite recent local shows were Televisionaries and Harmonica Lewinski.
What else? Love chewy red wines, bitter beers, movies, pickleball, Words with Friends (though I actually only ever play it with one person and I lose every single time), and my cats. I compost like a champ. Does anyone in this town play backgammon?
