I enjoy crocheting, knitting, and sewing/quilting. What I like the best about doing these is creating items for charity or for my family.. I am making washcloths and slippers for The Pink Slipper Project who provides these items for women and children escaping domestic violence situations. I also participate in Project Linus who gives blankets to children from birth to age 18 who are suffering some kind of trauma. It keeps me busy.
I also scrapbook sometimes and I have created some jewelry items, but not for a long time.
I am a church musician - I play piano and organ. My taste in music is very eclectic. I reserve my judgment on a style of music or a specific selection until I have heard it. i love to hear and play with violins. They are my favorite.
I love to read. Presently, I belong to two book clubs, one is general and the other is a classic book club. My favorite classic books are "Les Miserables" and "The Scarlet Pimpernel". I like epic stories, historical fiction, fairy tale retellings, time travel, fantasy and occasionally a young adult book. My daughter is a children's/young adult librarian, so I get recommendations from her. I'm also working my way through all of the Nancy Drew books in our library, just for fun.
I don't read especially fast, but I can finish 3 or 4 books a month if it is a good month.
I like to do reading challenges, but only to challenge myself - I rarely sign-up for prizes or anything.
My husband and adult daughter and I are in the process of watching all 22 Marvel movies. We are really enjoying them!
I love to go to the cinema to see movies, but I don't get to do it very often.
I watch television shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime and very seldom on TV. As a matter of fact, we recently gave up our cable TV service and went back to using an antenna. It works for us.
I like epic family dramas. I watched every episode of "McLeod's Daughters" on Amazon. It is set in Australia on a cattle ranch run by women. It was quite good. I also like "Heartland" that is set in Canada. I just finished "Derry Girls" and now I am watching "Offspring". I also like "Outlander", "Poldark", "When Calls the Heart", "Mozart in the Jungle", "Jane the Virgin", Victoria", "Northern Rescue", and "The Crown."
Every once in a while I watch a series in a different language than English. I have watched "The Grand Hotel," "The Time Between", "Cable Girls," and "Velvet" in Spanish and "Seyit and Sula" in Turkish - with subtitles, of course.
I am trying to follow a low-sugar, low-carb diet to reverse my Type 2 diabetes; however, if you are sending me cookie recipes, my family LOVES cookies and they can eat anything.
I eat chicken, turkey, pork, and ground meat, but I rarely cook steak or pot roast (although I eat Grandma's). I try to have one or two meatless meals a week. For lunch I have a GIANT salad and I don't eat breakfast. .
I love chocolate, but I have been trying to avoid it until my diabetes is under control.
I like most teas. My favorites are Constant Comment, Plantation Mint, Orange and Spice, Earl Grey, Apple & Cinnamon, Raspberry Zinger, but I will try most anything.
