My self-summary
A Winter list of things I love:
- walking in the snow by myself or with someone who enjoys it also.
- my children and their activities.
- animals and nature, a cat or a dog also.
-being warm by a fire with someone or warm at heart.
-life in general even just a regular day shoveling a path to feed feed the birds.
-my home is comfortable and down to earth.
-sharing my life with someone who matches this list in all or one or two ways.
There, that was just my favorite off the cuff idea of myself. I am a grounded person, have two adult, successful children and one grandchild. I am an active, retired teacher and still enjoy being busy, travel, and gardening. I love to watercolor, cooking (experimenting with spices, wines, and seafood).
I would love to meet someone who knows how to relax and enjoy the moment, the day, and the rose and smelling it.
What I’m doing with my life
I have retired and enjoy a mixture of family, traveling, some teaching part time, walking, outdoors in the winter, friends, and would love to share those things with someone.
I enjoy music, books, movies, and just about anything outdoors. I am not a very enthusiastic shopper....so if that is a happy thing for you I would stay home and enjoy the roaring fire!
In the summer I love to garden, walk the beach, and just being in the sunshine.
I’m really good at
My list:
-good at conversation.
-a dry wit that can develop into laughter.
-being comfortable in any situation.
-being around horses and most animals.
-art museums and the treasures they hold.
-antique shops and enjoying them.(Oops, I do enjoy that kind of shopping!)
The first things people usually notice about me
My friendliness and smile. I try to make sure that people feel comfortable and welcome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Garden, travel, art, and novels. I enjoy movies and probably just about any kind, suspense is a favorite.
Seafood is my very favorite.
A variety of music is fine with me. I go see anything from classical to Willie Nelson live.
Six things I could never do without
My family.
My friends.
I would want my someone special to be happy with me and with what we do with our lives. (Having fun cooking in the kitchen together!)
I want animals in my life forever.
Being outdoors and active.
Helping others in need when able.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-how fast the days go by!
On a typical Friday night I am
I spend time with friends, watch a movie, or read. If the summer is upon my I am outdoors and walking or gardening til dusk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will admit that it would be really nice to have someone to share my days whether it be low keyed or an adventure.
