My mailbox got burned in the Bobcat fire, so I am using my work address for incoming swaps. We are closed on Saturday, so my mailman can't deliver. So, you might get a tracking notice "unable to deliver" , but he will come back on Monday, so don't worry ;)
FYI: I mail out from my local post office of Valyermo (see above), which is very old, tiny & rural. Nobody is even there...you just go in and drop mail into the chute! Things don't get scanned until they reach the next city.
Where I live:
I live in beautiful Juniper Hills, which is in the foothills of the Angeles Forest/San Gabriel Mountains above the Mojave Desert in Southern California. I am near a ski resort, fishing lake, a natural spring, rock climbing/hiking area, an abbey retreat and the Poppy Reserve. There are wild animals & lots of wildflowers. Its very peaceful here with amazing sunsets and at night you can see many stars because there are no city lights. There is also an airforce base nearby, so I see a lot of really cool stuff flying around.
natural spring by my house
I love to travel, go on nature hikes, take photos, try new restaurants, visit botanical gardens, museums, old graveyards, cathedrals, tea houses and flea markets. At home I enjoy organic gardening and have chickens, a beehive and a koi pond. I do a lot of crafts: painting, paper crafts, jewelry making, resin, pysanky eggs, a little sewing and other random things.
one of my favorite wildflowers: Aster
My favorite color peach/coral.
Favorite number is 3.
I am a petite size small and size 6 shoe.
My favorite scents are lemon and grapefruit.
My favorite teas are popped rice, cinnamon, & black teas with caffeine, jasmine, Earl Grey & fruity teas too. I don't care for chamomile, green tea or mint, but when it comes down to it, I'll drink those too!
I am a Leo and spiritual, but not religious. I love nature, being healthy and positive thinking.
wildflowers in spring
I like Boho style, Alice In Wonderland, British royalty, Celtic, India, cactus, Ganesha, Frida, mermaids, woodland fairies, pixies & elves.
