I have a family issue that needs attention, so I’m afraid I’ll be off SB for an indefinite amount of time.
I’m a former 6th grade teacher, but now work for a non-profit, mostly from home. I have an independent 😀 & bright (but sometimes moody) teen and a kind, smart, & funny husband. He and I met in the local scuba diving club, and our kid is also certified. There’s an entirely other world under the water and it’s so peaceful and beautiful! Although I’ve lived in the South my entire life, I dream of living in a cool climate (menopause has greatly increased this desire 😓) and of snow falling on Christmas Day ❄️ . I fantasize about having a home in Colorado. I love snow! ‘Round here, 6” or more means school & appointments are called off and most people get an unexpected free day, which I LOVE! (Make a roaring crackling fire, bake, craft, shovel, nap, shoot pics)
I read a newspaper daily and particularly enjoy Miss Manners, Jumble, and advice columns (Carolyn Hax is so wise). I miss Dave Barry’s weekly column, Farside, and Calvin & Hobbs, but now laugh at Zits, Dilbert and Pluggers.
We live on a few acres so I enjoy seeing the wildlife, in particular the birds. I typically have a bluebird family in the spring & it’s exciting watching the full progression! I love trees and find bugs 🐛 🐜 🕷 & snakes 🐍 interesting. They’re around here all the time, so we get along just fine.
I make an effort to live environmentally-friendly (e.g., I recycle, reduce, reuse & compost, try to reduce my use of single-use plastics)
🐈 I have 2 orange tabby cat boys whom I adore. 🐈
coffee flavored candy & desserts, lattes, espresso, coffee cups, quotes about coffee, chocolate covered espresso beans, demitasse cups, think the Bubba Gump shrimp guy talking about shrimp...that’s me with coffee
comical items! To get an idea of my sense of humor, I find very funny:
——————- even odd things like a tiny screw, tiny piece of satin ribbon, or an itty bitty feather. Doll house things like a tiny Kleenex box or a miniature book make me lose my mind!
I like tiny things, sparkles
Robert Llewellen’s photographs amaze me! robertllewellyn
interesting ideas about life in the future
natural items found outside. I usually have a bowl which I fill with natural finds I like: a feather, a tiny pine cone, a colorful stone or one in a particular shape, some interesting seeds, a pretty leaf, etc.
TV Shows that have been favorites include: -———————————————————
Movies I’ve loved
I’m delighted with tiny stickers or cute postage stamps or little cute pictures cut from magazines.
