Hello and welcome!
Married 36 years and homeschooling mom of 4. Only one left at home and he's 12. We live on a small farm. I’m 53 and some days I feel 14 .....and others 90! I have a poodle that thinks she’s a Doberman. I have caught and neutered over 15 feral cats. 7 still live on our farm and only one comes inside for kibble breakfast every morning and goes back outside. Animals that have been dumped in my driveway are too many to count. I have lived here 21 years. We’ve had a few goats dropped off, a lamb, a chocolate lab, a beautiful elderly bird dog, and a pig just to name a few. Right now we have 13 chickens, 3 dogs, 7 cats and a yard turtle named Scar who has appeared around the place every year since we built a house in his woods.
All types of music are interesting to me. I was a teenager in the 80s-90s so I'm fond of pop/rock from that era. I like some bluegrass, older country, I enjoy listening to Japanese spa type music, a little Kpop occasionally, and often spend my early morning time tuned into 1940's UK radio on the web.
True stories about history and events. Currently reading : 8/18/19: A Gathering of Days 8/6/19: Hero on a Bicycle - about a boy in Italy during the Nazi occupation.
I have all the Boxcar Children books and Hardy Boys, Stories about life during 1940's world wide, Survival Books, Gardening, Stamp collecting, Herbal, Word Search puzzle mags, & I have enjoyed reading many of Barbara Kingsolver books. My favorite being Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. As a child I would take entire volumes of my grandparents encyclopedias and read them cover to cover. The Childcraft books by World Book were treasures.
Ponyo, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service.... Sarah Plain and Tall, Anne of Avonlea , Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Seal Morning, Lord of the Rings , The Hobbit, The Last Unicorn, Little House on the Prarie, The Princess Bride.... Star Wars,....

and sometimes BBC shows... Home Front, Land Girls, Wartime Kitchen, Foyle's War Currently watching Netflix episodes of Father Brown...funny and suspenseful.
I enjoy paper crafts like card making, Scherenshnitte, miniature book making, ATC,& now into making Memorydex Cards.
Junk Journals are a favorite. The lacy, ribbon filled, lots of pockets and tuck spots, made from an old hard back book....I'm working on one for myself that is very girlie, with lots of lace, shades of pink/rose and ecru white. Vintage slightly creepy.
Current Obsession is kawaii stationary and letter swaps. I can't get enough of it. I do think it is spilling over into other areas of my life. I just finished painting my tiny office bubble gum pink! hahahahaa.....
I love Tea especially estate teas. My favorite being Darjeeling but after that just about any of the black teas, herbal teas and flavored. I also enjoy sharing starts from plants & seed trading. I currently have 42 different varieties of tomato seeds.
