The one thing I am passionate about...
Any activity at home is my current passion. I live on a river...it's my "Little Eden"! I recently bought this property...a project home that takes up most of my time (remodeling,upgrading,landscaping). I have a long list of "have to do's" and "wanta do's" around here that include: whole house repaint, kitchen facelift and deck & dock rebuild w/ creative liberties. I enjoy animal life all around, especially the birds! I have a boat and look forward to future "African Queen" adventures down river to the ocean. Music is a lifelong passion. I don't play an instrument, but I have an expanding collection of music that doesn't collect dust.
I typically spend my leisure time
Home projects take up most of my leisure time...for now. I am forever thinking about travel destinations (some visited, many yet to see), especially Australia. I attend many local events regularly.
The most influential person in my life has been
For me, it's the SUM of all her qualities that really matters. However, I feel sure that honesty stands out for almost everyone.
The first thing people notice about me
Not sure...maybe that I'm almost always in good spirits.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was "Odd Thomas", by Dean Koontz. The souls of the dead seek communication with Thomas, but no words. They help him solve murders and other crimes, mystery's. I like fiction, but the majority of my reading is DIY'er type material, from woodworking (current project is an outdoor bench/trellis) to interior design.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- A good job...it allows me to have things and pursue life's little adventures, wherever they may take me.
- My home, living on the water...view, water activities, abundant animal life
- My family... typically dysfunctional, and delightful, they are very loving .and always there for me!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Not sure about this one either...the important qualities are usually not discovered immediately. That I am a positive, modern thinker, and although I cherish old values, I look at life from a 360 degree perspective.

A little more about me
I like to laugh and find humor in everyday life! I don't take myself or life too seriously. I am always thinking about the possible, with the freedom and willingness to pursue it!
