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. Reading about cooking and wines is enjoyable too. 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. At least 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! Last week was especially good; I was able to see Tom Petty, Harmonica Lewinski, and the Black Keys.
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?
