Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome to the world of me.... Defining me. I am a person who is
never stopped by life. Maybe at times for a time, and then I pick
myself up and continue to move forward on this journey called my
life. I am so grateful for my journey and where I am today.
One of my passions is dancing and when I dance, I love the feeling
of freedom and being one with the universe that I experience . I am
also passionate about working with people creating colour and
design work, both personally and in their home. I also love to dig
in my garden and grow wonderful veggies and also my soul food,
flowers. Cooking is for sure another one of my passions. Different
ethnic foods are great any time.
My family is a big part of my life though my children are all grown
and having children of their own. I am a grandmother of eight
beautiful souls. Yup !!! Crazy even when I say it !!! Yikes.... I
think they're done....
I'm actually a softy at heart and can become emotional at the mere
sight of one of my grandchildren playing, a great song, a book that
changes my perspective or even the beauty of the day.
There are never enough hours in my life to read all of the
incredible books in the world. And then there are the great movies
and interesting people and adventures yet to take.....
I enjoy interacting with people in great conversations that have me
think, question, laugh, ponder and even challenge me to take on
Travel is my latest passion. As I create the time I will do more. I
have been to Mexico, Hermosa Beach many times, San Fran. too many
times to count, Seattle and also Italy for my 55th birthday to name
a few. Belize was my latest adventure.
My friends would describe me as a true friend, honest, reliable and
fun. I am a Gemini and what that means for you is that you will
hopefully never be bored in a relationship with me. Variety is my
spice of life.
I have to be attracted to you, my mate and I love that rush of
butterflies I get when you look at me from across the room. I love
passion, affection and the closeness and intimacy of being
Physically, today I may have red and pink hair and tomorrow it may
all be gone. I'm also not skinny, nor do I want to be. If Barbie is
what you're looking for thank you and keep looking. Me, I'm like an
expensive bottle of wine....Worth every dollar....
Having said all of this let the games begin....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well I am always up to lots of things. In my personal life, I am
currently taking on my health and fitness and bringing it to a new
I'm usually taking a course or seminar often related to personal
I love to travel and explore new places and people.
Reading, cooking, dancing, curling, swimming, walking.
Grew up playing cards and board games and still enjoy them
Enjoy creating dinner parties and get togethers with friends or
Love to be in my garden and the outdoors when it is warm.
Simply loving life...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a pretty good cook. My father was a chef at the Royal York
Hotel in Toronto and his gift rubbed off on his daughters.
I also love to dance. I just go out there and have fun.
I would also have to say that I am really good at being a good
friend and Mother for my children of which I have four.
I am also a fair boss. I believe in being fair with my staff and
treating everyone as I would like to be treated.
At this stage of life I hope that I know what I am good at. It took
me long enough to get here......
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing that people notice about me are my eyes. I have big
blue eyes. Or perhaps it would be my smile. And then it would
probably be my hair. I change it often. Did I mention that? LOL
Colour, style, length. What can I say? I like variety. I have also
been told I have a memorable laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Wow. There are so many amazing books that I have read and that have
had an impact on my life. One that stands out for me is a book
called 'A Fine Balance' by Rohinton Mistry. Incredible writer and
I love movies that make me laugh, also movies that have a profound
message about life lessons, and also the oldies, musicals, classic
old westerns, comedies. Across the Universe was incredible.
Shawshank Redemption, Same time next year, Life as a House, The
Fisher King, Austin Powers, Little Big Man. What can I say. I like
movies. I no longer watch television. I have been turned off,
literally for over a dozen years....
I still love old rock and roll. I also love to listen to Italian
and Spanish music, as well as dancing to the blues, listening to
classical, some jazz. A bit of country. And my two favourite
singers are still Nat King Cole and Bette Midler.
Food. The sky is the limit. I love so many varieties and cultures
of food. I am always looking for new dishes to try. I must admit,
I'm not into weird animal parts though.....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family and friends
Music and dancing
Passion and intimacy in my romantic relationship
Education whether through books, life or schooling
I know this is way more then six; are you counting?... but I have
to add the outdoors. Mother Nature fills my soul.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I guess I have spent a lot of time thinking over the years about my
purpose for being here on this journey. I've thought about the
decisions that I have made through out my life and the impact that
those decisions have had on my children, good and bad. I live in
gratitude for where my life has led me and who I am today as a
person, a Mother, a Grandmother, and friend.
Today I am still busy in life and at times I also ponder about my
future partner and what our lives will be like as we create us.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is typical? Not for me. I can be at home, with friends, out to
dinner, on and on. I love to socialize and I also love quiet time.
A home body I am not. I have a great balance of both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love food. And I love good popcorn. Not just popcorn, but popcorn
with butter. Grew up with it being our Saturday night treat while
watching the hockey game.
Also, at times I think I should have been born of another
nationality because I love so many other ethnic foods.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you are a gentleman who is busy in your
life. You are physically fit and active and care about your
appearance. You are moving in a forward direction in your personal
growth and development. You contribute back to community; you enjoy
travelling; you're honest; you enjoy your family; you like to laugh
and have fun; and .... you are willing to get to know me first to
see if we are a fit.
Well heck.... then drop me a line. LOL
No smokers. Thanks but no thanks.
