I’m getting a late start with this first post of the week and the new year. I stayed up late ringing in the new year with family and friends. It was mostly virtually, but it was still a lot of fun. We’re all hoping the new year is far better than the old despite the pandemic still raging.
I thought I’d start fresh by telling you about myself. I know there’s an About section on this blog, but I thought I’d just say a few words anyway.
I’m 50 years young, and I’m happy to have lived this long. I did a lot of not so smart things when I was younger though I never even thought about eating Tide Pods…. Takes a special sort of person to think that’s a good idea imho.
I am a writer. I write something every day whether it’s an entry in my journal, a list of things I need to get done, or adding to a creative project I’m working on. I currently have two novels in different stages of completion. I have two more projects needing small changes done to them. I have written short stories and poems, examples can be found on Wattpad, and I’ll link to them in a later post.
I have two grown sons and a grade school-age granddaughter. They are my inspiration. I also have a special gentleman friend I see when time allows. He works full time and lives in another city so it’s not as simple as just popping over to each other’s home for a visit. Still, it works for us, and we’re enjoying every moment of the time we do get to spend together.
I have several hobbies but mostly, I’m a fiber artist. I crochet, embroider, cross stitch, hand sew and just recently, make lace. I have learned the basics of Battenburg lace making, and I’m watching videos on Armenian lace making.
I love animals, but my chosen love is the cat. I have had cats all my life. I like dogs, even owned a couple, but I prefer cats. I’ve also owned turtles, lizards and guinea pigs in the past. I helped raise two pigs when I was a kid living in a children’s home too. That was fun. Animals in general are wonderful, imho.
So there you have it, a little bit about me. I am a pretty private person so you won’t hear much about my private life, I will always leave out names from now on because I want to keep my family safe. I’ve heard too many horror stories to just blurt things out with no regard for the consequences. It does help my boys have different last names than I do, but I still won’t say anything revealing without their permission. I hope everyone understands.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!! Who knows, we might find some shinies!
