About Me

3/20/18 I'm taking a break here for a while to get caught up on penpal letters and enjoy the gorgeous spring weather. I'll be checking in weekly to check my mail and rate any outstanding swaps. See you soon!

I'm 43 and live with my husband, parakeet, cockatiel and a fish tank of freshwater fish.

I'm slightly obsessed with parakeets/budgies. My 4-year-old parakeet Minion is blue - send me budgie/parakeet things and I will do a happy dance!

I also love cockatiels, especially the "lutino" (white and yellow) ones. My adorable cockatiel Sophie is 8 months old!

Favorite Music

I love:

The Weepies, Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson,

My Obsessions

Reading! I've loved reading my whole life. I'm not too picky about books, but I tend to like character-driven books, post-apocalyptic (not sci fi), and non-fiction. Reading has been my favorite thing my entire life. I'm really into short story anthologies at the moment.

Birds! I love my pet birds, my patio is a wild bird haven,and I go on bird walks!

Genealogy! I'm obsessed! My people came from England, Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Embroidery! I love making baby onesies, pillows and tea towels!

Art! I love museums, abstract expressionism, Frank Gehry, Manet, Jackson Pollock, Rothko, still life paintings (especially by the "Dutch Masters"), Chihuly glass, Vermeer, Frank Lloyd Wright

History! I love the Tudor era, Queens (historical English royalty, esp Queen Victoria, Tudor Queens, Queen Charlotte, Marie Antoinette), old cemeteries, documentaries, the Gilded Age (Vanderbilts, Astors, etc)

Eating (but not cooking)! Cheese, cheese Pizza, Sushi, Pad Thai, Eggs Benedict, Gum, Haribo raspberry candy, Indian food, Mashed potatoes, Jelly Bellys. I’ll eat anything that isn’t guts or super spicy.

Gardening! I want a large flower cutting garden. Love dahlias, moss, ferns, streams, glads, tulips, hyacinths, and flowering vines.

Travel! Fav places are: Oregon, Seattle, NYC, East coast leaf peeping, Japan, Paris, London, Italy, Napa, northern California, Costa Rica, New Orleans

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful blue eyed cat card. The picture reminded me of Sheba the siamese cat that my husband had when I first met him in 1965. She stayed with his parents when we got married as we lived in a very small apartment and didn't have room for her.
