Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a widow with two adult children and two grandchildren and two
adult step-children, none living at home. I enjoy my collie and my
cat (both rescues), visit my Morgan horse once in a while, read
mysteries and non fiction, watch NOVA and NATURE and Ask This Old
House, and weaned myself from NCIS a year ago. I like National
Geographic. Don't like horror fiction or movies. I play cello and
enjoy playing with friends in a piano trio and attending local
concerts (I live in a university community and there is LOTS to
do--much of it free!) I enjoy gardening, and don't vacuum as often
as I should because the dog and I are just going to track more dirt
inside. I'm good about keeping the kitchen clean and doing the
laundry, but I dislike emptying the dishwasher and folding clothes.
Since I am the only person in my car most of the time, the
passenger seat is well stocked with Kleenex, CDs, a water bottle,
and whatever I'm carting around at the moment. About once a week it
gets out of hand and looks like a bachelor pad, so I toss
everything out and start over.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working very part time at my church; taking cello lessons and
playing with a string quartet and a piano trio; trying to clean out
the house and paint two of the bedrooms (I have the wallpaper
stripped from one of the rooms. Next step--paint that room.) Didn't
get around to shoveling out the garage this year except to make a
space in front of the car for bio bricks. Got to sort out the horse
stuff and yard stuff. There's a lot of it I will never use again.
Visit the grandchildren on occasion. Spend one morning a week
visiting my best friend. Go visit someone somewhere one week a year
just for the change of pace.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I'm quiet, and (depending on where I am) I'm either well dressed
and clean (church, appointments) or ragged and filthy (yardwork,
horse stuff) or ragged and clean (around the house).

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Not in order:
my church community
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
practicing cello or watching "A Gifted Man" or reading.
Concerts around here are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays except at
the end of semesters when they are all day every day when music
majors and music grad students have their recitals, and some of
them are VERY GOOD.

and neat. And, of course, if you are interested :)
