About me

Gender Female
Industry Business Services
Occupation Admin Assistant
Location Nova Scotia, Canada
Introduction Female w/ loads of laugh-lines who is determined to remain her old-optimistic self. At the end of middle-age & at the beginning of being a senior! Still raising children; love solitude & yet love to be surrounded by my friends. Eats way too much chocolate (is there such a thing?); would like to drink more red wine; & am embarking on a new healthy-eating regime. (And I'm sure I can combine all 3!) Hard-working & frequently tired. Calgon -- take me away!!
Interests Laughing a lot, partaking of good food & wine. Singing, dancing & music; flower gardening; cleaning out my purse & rearranging my furniture; pushing my luck; reading things that let me escape; stacking the magazines I'm going to go thru someday (w/ plans to cut out all the pretty pictures I like); cooking & trying new foods, & yelling at my kids to smarten up. (It hasn't worked yet!)
Favorite Movies Lord of the Rings: Return of the King; 5th Element; Enchanted April; It's a Wonderful Life, Mama Mia, Forest Gump, Everything is Illuminated, Happy Feet; and Avatar was pretty darned good!
Favorite Music Beatles and other 60's/70's, ABBA, Gypsy Kings, warm 'n' spicy Latin music, some classical, some bluegrass, Paul Wilbur, quiet worship-type, almost any type other than rap and heavy metal.
Favorite Books Anne of Green Gables (changed me as a child); Bible, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn; the Jan Karon books; the Steig Larson trilogy, George RR Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" series, any good mystery story; & some family-oriented book that allows me a good cry (w/o being morbid).

The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?
