Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where does one start? I'm not very good about singing my praises or
tooting my own horn. Guess I'll start by saying I'm a daughter,
mother, grandmother, sister, niece, and friend. Due to some
dramatic changes in my life, I found myself becoming more and more
of a home body and soon discovered I'm not content with just
staying at home anymore. I'm looking to remedy that situation and
would really like to find someone to share my life. I am probably
one of the least pretentious/ostentatious woman you'll ever meet. I
live a relatively simple and quiet life. But I find myself wanting
to share some of those simple things...going on walks in the fall
while crunching the leaves, watching the Perseid Meteor Shower,
driving real slow along an old country road into a huge autumn
harvest moon, smelling freshly mowed alfalfa, walking on the beach,
exploring and discovering new places, riding a motorcycle on a hot
summer day, canoeing down a river...There's a time and place for
solitude but I find even the simple things in life are much more
appreciated when they are shared especially with someone who would
appreciate them as I do. There is a lot in life I haven't done and
I would love to find someone willing to share in my life's

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I really don't have a favorite book, movie, etc. I love to find and
enjoy a good book to read - be it fiction (the classics, westerns,
sci fi, thrillers, horror, historical and MAYBE even a good romance
novel if it can be believed) or non (how to, self-help,
auto/biographies, histories, etc). I love to read and I will have
to admit, it's my favorite pastime; although, as I said earlier,
I'm not a "favorite" type of girl. I guess that's due to the joy of
discovering new things that life has to offer so why be "hung-up"
on one particular thing? Music? Wow! I love music. Did I say I
loved music? Understatement! Most any kind of music will do. Music
moves me. Depends on my environment or my mood at the time as to
what you might catch me listening to. I was raised on bluegrass (my
dad played many stringed instruments but his forte was the
mandolin). So, as a slightly rebellious teenager, I turned my back
on bluegrass and country. Naturally, I grew up and can now even
enjoy country and bluegrass. Once again, I really don't have a
favorite style of music. I'm open to what moves me at the time;
classical, opera, rock, jazz, blues, Cajun, hip hop, Flamenco...As
far as food, I do like to eat and have found the older I get the
more my taste seems to change. I really do like pickled eggs now!
=] I have to admit, I'm not much of a cook unless I have a recipe
to follow. I make do and I'm far from starving, and due to budget
restraints I rarely eat out. I have been trying to alter my
lifestlye and have been more conscientious about what I eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
this one is difficult because I've never been a materialistic
person, most of what I could never do without are intangible
my family, definitley
changing of the seasons
the ability to discover and learn about life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
seeing my mother grow old in a nursing home and having so many of
my family pass in such a short time has really got me thinking
about my own mortatlity lately. Nothing morbid, I simply wonder
sometimes what it's all about? I try to make some sense out of it
all and wonder how and/or what I can do or contribute to make the
world a better place...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
lately I have been studying but you can usually catch me reading or
watcing a movie
