The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my family. I have 5 siblings and my mother still with us, as well as my two grown children and their new families. We enjoy getting together several times a year and are all very good friends in life. I am also quite passionate about quiet country-style living. I left the city after 25 years and absolutely love my simple, rural, down-to-earth life style. But I am a "lover" by heart, a giver and nurturer, and need to love somebody too. Relationships are important to me-all of the books, TV shows, etc. that I enjoy are about relationships. Being in education for 35 years, intellectual ability is important to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy being outside-gardening, walking, hiking, and golf. In winter I enjoy sewing and quilting, reading, and cooking. I like motorcycling, boating, and skiing. During haying season I enjoy working for my brother in the hayfield.
The most influential person in my life has been
Gentleness and a true-caring, genuine nature. Someone who enjoys some of my leisure activities too, now that I have lots of new leisure time.
The first thing people notice about me
I am nearly always busy doing something-around my yard or house or creating something. I like to stay busy.
The last book I read and enjoyed
These High Green Hills. It was about a newly married priest in a small mid-western town. I like anything about the pioneer-type of living-cowboys, westerns, etc.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My "farm-life" upbringing (simple values, hard-work ethic, do-it yourself attitude.)
- My pleasure in the great outdoors.
- My good health and my two wonderful children.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a good conversationalist-once approached. I enjoy discussing just about everything-especially the weather!
