I am not a morning person. Do not speak to me before 10 a.m. However, be prepared to be talking if you are awake after 10 p.m. because 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. are my peak hours for talking, watching movies and working. I don't like it that way, but that's how my body works.
I love to fish, travel, camp and be in the great outdoors, particularly if it involves food, eating, holding a fishing pole or a glass of sweet tea.
I'm self-employed so I can do all that too! I'm old, but not dead. That means I still enjoy doing things, just not at breakneck speed anymore. A day on a boat (from canoe or john-boat to something larger, just being on the water is cool). a day spent at a flea market, or junkyard is great.
Looking for someone who enjoys working with their hands - carpentry, wood working, fishing and gardening. I've been a police officer, journalist, photo-journalist and raft guide, among about 100 other things. I'm insanely curious, fun, sometimes intense and have no room in my life for drama, bull-sh** or games.
I love working with wood, doing home projects, making things with wood, sewing, painting, quilting - although I don't get behind the sewing machine as much as I'd like. I like to travel and am as comfortable sleeping in the back of my van as I am a hotel. I drive a 75 Chevy van (G30 series....I know, they rock right?) I'm a jeans, turtleneck and flannel shirt gal, but I clean up well and enjoy doing that too. I own more power tools than shoes.
I like my steak rare and barbequed by someone else. Love veggies, but am definitely a carnivore.
I like taking classes - and want to learn to weld in 2014. Also interested in taking some classes in woodworking as I'd like to build my own travel trailer (tiny house) some day. I'm not desperate for a relationship, but if one happens, okay then. I'm NOT LONELY being alone. I just want to add a few friends and see what happens. I'll live even if I don't meet anyone special here.
I went to Africa twice this year on both a mission trip and work assignment. Loved it. Came back and started Mamakit.org, a non-profit to help African women get the medical supplies they need when having babies. I enjoy traveling and wish I'd done more overseas stuff when I was younger. Looking to make up for lost time in the coming years.
Also good at talking, traveling, distracting others from whatever they're working on, eating, building campfires, listening, helping others, watching movies and seeing the silver lining in every cloud.
I don't like to gossip, so the first thing gossipers notice about me is I'm bored and wander away.
Men who come on with remarks about sex and physicality notice I'm turned off. Not interested until I'm married. I'm not a prude. I just respect myself.
Being creative, whether painting, sewing, writing, photography or woodworking, building stuff is a must have.
My two cats. Wish I had another Rottweiler since I love them, but can't find an apartment that allows them any more.
My camera. I'm a former journalist and photographer and my camera and the chance to document everything that happens to me is important.
Variety in life is critical. I am bored to tears with routine. I like to have a lot of different things to focus on and I like something new and different to look forward to every day.
Travel. I love traveling, whether its' driving around the city, the state or getting on a plane to fly someone. I love driving and finding new places to visit, new restaurants to try.
