June 10, 2023: Taking part of the summer off to focus on home/yard work and traveling. Will be back in early August. Happy swapping!!
Things are going well and I am looking forward to warmer sunny days. Peace and blessings abound in your life.❤️
WELCOME! Thank you for stopping by to meet me.
Mimosagirl ...my Swapbot id has a connection to a tree planted in my yard. It was a gift by one of my sons who saved a small twig from the trash heap of a greenhouse/nursery he was working at when he was a teenager. He is now 34 and the tree is huge.
I’m a 55 yr old stay at home mom. I have a young son that I homeschool. For fun he and I play Pokémon, Minecraft, Animal Crossing New Horizons, chess, backgammon and go on adventures through our land or sometimes museums. He keeps me young 😃
I love gardening, history, art, Japanese gardens, spelunking through caves, and just about anything that I can get my body to agree with. I have good days and not so good. I’m not sure what I have other than really achy bones. I started upping my vitamins and water so I’m hoping that helps. It’s depressing to be in pain most of the time.
All types of music are interesting to me. I was a teenager in the 80s so I'm fond of pop/rock from that era. I like some bluegrass, older country, I enjoy listening to Japanese music, a little Kpop occasionally, and often spend my early morning time tuned into 1940's UK radio on the web.
Speaking of 1940's, I am a huge fan of vintage (1930-1950) postcards, womens handkerchiefs, vintage style fashion, brooches, playing cards, food tins, Christmas decor, and just about anything from that era.
True stories about history and events. Currently reading :

9/2/20 : I was given a stack of paper crafting magazines so I am enjoying those right now and watching tons of DIY youtube videos. With current events I can't get into a book it seems. I have a hard time staying focused and remembering what I have read. So....I try to just keep busy.

I have tried to add Etsy and Amazon wishlists but cannot seem to have success. It always says the links cannot be opened. So, I am adding them here. If you are interested you might can copy and paste.
