I am an urban homesteader, creating an edible landscape at my east Austin home. I have lived in Austin for the last 17 years - 15 if those in the same house. I am a landlord. It has been a lot of fun and is one of the things that inspired me to try okcupid - the other inspiration was turning 40! I grinned ear-to-ear all day long on my birthday. I remember my mom and dad and all my aunts and uncles turning 40 - it seemed so momentous at the time. Thinking of myself as reaching that same milestone just seems like a big joke!
I am a mom to 2 children, a 15 year old son and 9 year old daughter. We have our ups and downs. I happen to be the strongest personality in the house, so granted "our" ups and downs are usually mine.
I come over much better in person, so if you would like to meet send me a message and we can talk. Don't be discouraged if you don't see a message back right away. My work is really busy right now and I like to think about my responses - I'm not so good at off-the-cuff writing.
I enjoy being physical. Right now that is confined to yoga, but I used to play volleyball, tennis and raquetball and would love to find someone to play with.
I love to have a great conversation over coffee, except that I just gave up coffee, but I drink chai instead. I try to get to the why of everything. I find people fascinating and I enjoy trying to understand where they are coming from and how they came by their opinions.
