About Me

I am 60 years old and live in a small rural farming village near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

I am married with two young adult sons. I have two cats and a dog.

I am a creative type who loves creative writing, photography, card making and letter writing.

I also enjoy performing music in a choir and playing flute in a band and with harps but this pandemic year of 2020 is preventing me from enjoying these past times. Hopefully I'll be able to resume them some day. In the meantime, my snail mail is even more meaningful for connection than ever!

I like reading romance, chicklit, history and young adult books. I love going to movies at the theatre with my friend and I enjoy watching them on Netflix and Hoopla.

I have rediscovered snail mail again and going to get my mail at the outdoor mailboxes is fun again! Woohoo! This swap site sounds like fun!

As for things I like to get in the mail, I am not too fussy and picky. I do love stickers and stationery. Vintage or stuff with cats and birds are a special delight but I'm just so happy to get anything in the mail that isn't junk or a bill! I don't mind postcards just as they are. Thanks so much!

I saw the ABC's of me on other profiles and thought I'd do it, too. Such fun!

Comment: Thank you for the sweet card, nice message and extras. I love the bulldog pup on the card. Reminds me of my grandpup, Gus when he was little. He grew up too fast. Your weekend sounded lovely. I enjoyed 'The Dig' too. Your walk around the village to take photos sounds like a lovely way to spend the day. Thank you for making me day!

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful photo of your birches. I just moved to a new place with many lovely walking trails. Just being outdoors, among the trees, makes even difficult days wonderous.
