The one thing I am passionate about...
Too many things: my pets, creating a nice home and garden, being on the water, reading, cooking, spending quality time with friends, favorite places: Rockies, New England (especially in the fall), California coast; a variety of music.
I typically spend my leisure time
Quality time with friends and pets, cooking and reading
The most influential person in my life has been
Integrity - this encompasses so many other elements: honesty, loyalty, respect of self and others, compassion, etc.
The first thing people notice about me
My happy, positive attitude - I am truly a "glass half full" kind of person. Life is too short to focus, or waste energy, on the negative.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am an avid reader and I have many authors I like. Currently reading The Memory Bible (on exercizing your brain). Generally, I like thriller/legal/ books (J. Patterson, Vince Flynn, Grisham, D. Brown, R. Khoury); but also like mysteries; some auto/biographies; business; etc. And yes... I LOVE the Harry Potter books (I am a kid at heart!)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Parents - they made me who I am today
- Friends - they picked up where my parents left off
- Pets - they love me unconditionally
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My sense of humor. I love to laugh, but am terrible at telling jokes, or coming up with "shooting from the hip" spontaneous humor. Glib I am not, but I do appreciate it in others. :-)
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Genuine, Happy, Hard Working
A little more about me
While I truly pride myself in being a good person (I am a caretaker; compassionate; TRY to follow all the rules; treat people with respect, etc. - I do live by the Golden Rule), I am far from perfect. And while I dress in suits for work each day to go to a job I love, I love my life in the country and wearing jeans. I am looking for someone who also loves the "country life" and the relaxed, fresh air that goes with it. Also, just because I don't have children, doesn't mean I don't love them. If you have children, I understand that they come first and will look forward to getting to know them.
