My self-summary
Hello there. I will give this a try. I have lived all over the country, but consider the PNW home having returned about 8 years ago. I have raised two wonderful and kind children who are all grown up, (29 & 26) and two English Setters that I adore. I'm a fun-loving person who loves to laugh and be silly. I love nature and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. Crabbing, clam digging, fishing, (living in Alaska-you fish!) hiking, beach combing, baseball games, Timbers games. I'm also a voracious reader with at least one book going all the time. (not into the cheesy cleavage novels!) Apparently I'm kind of a fire cracker, (according to friends and family) but I don't have a temper. Just a feisty gal! I really enjoy cooking and feeding people! Dinner parties/BBQ's are one of my favorite things to do. I'm pretty laid back and low maintenance, and I've been told I'm fun and easy to travel with. I enjoy wine, and love to pack a light picnic and just wander the beautiful wine country, tasting along the way.
What I’m doing with my life
I hit the re-start button. I'm on the second leg of a return trip home to being me. ;-)
I’m really good at
Striking up conversation. I think I'm pretty good at coaxing people to share. I consider it a privilege when someone lets you have a peek in.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a playful bubbly personality most of the time and I've been told I have a great head of hair!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to go to the movies, but I generally prefer to read the book. (sometimes ya just have to see it on the big screen though, right?) I enjoy dark and eccentric comedy, so naturally I love all things Coen. Switching gears, I also like movies like Schindlers List, Shawshank Redemption, all of Sean Penns' work, The English Patient, Mystic River, Saving Private Ryan, on & on I could go. I recently finished and thoroughly enjoyed The Bronze Horseman and the two sequels for it. I love music, and listen to a pretty eclectic mix. Outdoor concerts are my favorite. Classic Rock, John Butler Trio, Jim Brickman, John Denver, Indigo Girls, Kenny Chesney, KD Lang, old standards. Food-well, I LOVE to cook so experimenting and dabbling in different ethnic foods is lots of fun. Especially Asian cuisines.
Six things I could never do without
My doggies, morning coffee, really good cheese, (ha) books, contact with my awesome kids, my good health.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How important it is to do your best to take the high road in life as often as you possibly can. To try to live your life truthfully, and graciously so that someday, upon reflecting, you can say you have little or no regrets.

I think about the next chapter in my life and what it might hold for me. I'm looking forward to it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking with a friend or relative and enjoying some good wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm doing this!
You should message me if
You aren't too serious, love to have fun, and, if we hit it off, are alright with taking things somewhat slowly.
The two of us
