Update as of August 2017... I have become an Independent Watkins Consultant and am very proud to be a part of this company which began in 1868 in the United States of America and has since grown all across Canada. It's a home based business with the highest quality products, and you can put in as little or as much time into it as you would like, and simply enjoy yourself and the people you meet.

Visit my site http://www.respectedhomebusiness.com/666202 to check things out. Across Canada Watkins Consultants are needed in Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and the Yukon Territory, and I'd love to 'meet' many of you all across North America!

Across the United States Watkins Consultants are needed in Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusettes, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Wyoming. All communities should have Watkins products available to them. They are top quality and the cleaning products are environmentally friendly! I invite you to check out my website as this no pressure home business may well be for you. :o)

MUSIC: I like a variety of genres for music; pop, contemporary, rock. And the best is praise and worship. To name a few, I like Audio Adrenaline, Brian Doerkson, Michael W Smith, Messianic Praise & Worship (Galilee of The nations), Newsong, Newsboys, Newworldson (kind of Jamaican/blues/worship) Nicole Sponberg, Paul Coleman.

BOOKS: Sons of Encouragement by Francine Rivers, Ted Dekker books, authors Robert Liparulo, Lynn Austin, Terri Blackstock, Joel C Rosenberg for all his political and prophetic books, Chuck Coleson, Max Lucado and Terry Law. I like the thrillers, fictional, historical, Biblical, comedy, and faith line of books. I rarely read a secular book... I do have some wonderful classics like Uncle Tom's Cabin, Huckleberry Finn, Cheaper By The Dozen, War and Peace, and so on... :o)

MOVIES: I like mostly the older movies; Girl in White, The Glenn Miller Story, and Little Women with June Allyson, MacArthur with Gregory Peck, but I also love the Lord of The Rings trilogy. We do have one Johnny Depp movie called Finding Neverland, but that's his only one. I like Three Cheers For the Irish with Dennis Morgan. I really like some movies with Loretta Young and Barbara Stanwyck (Stella Dallas) as well.

TV: I sometimes get to watch Murdoch Mysteries or the Geographic channel. I do have some of the tv series Murdoch Mysteries, all of Sue Thomas FBEye, and some of the Flashpoint series. I watch our local news and CTV News when I can. I like Person of Interest (have all that series) and Blue Bloods.

ABOUT MYSELF: I live on the prairies (but in the city) pretty much in the middle of Canada. I enjoy all our seasons but definitely not the bitter cold winter days when it's clear and sunny. I like forests, nature, waterfalls and mountains. I accepted Jesus Christ (Christ meaning the Annointed One) as my Lord and Savior in winter of '97. He has always been there for me. In Him and through Him all things were made. He is my Redeemer, my Warrior, my Glorious One. Through Jesus I have chosen a narrower path on this place called earth yet it is the path of total freedom, from the ways of this world, the god of this world, the darkness and oppression that abounds here. With Him I have a true sense of belonging, a true sense of joy no matter the situation. Being a Christian is a person who follows the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Being His disciple means you are a disciplined follower of Jesus. I trust Him with my life and through His work on the cross I am made righteous before the Father (not at all of my own doing).

♥ I am pro-Israel ♥ ..I have the most gorgeous set of coasters from Zambia ♥ I love a warm hug ♥ I love things in white and grey/white ~ I like red, deep greens, muted greens, pink, pastel blue, purple ..most colours :) ♥ orange, and white daisies ♥ carnations and roses * there are so many beautiful flowers ..sigh ♥ mmm...freshly caught pickerel (walleye) cooked over an open fire with bannock ♥ cardinals /goldfinches / beautiful songbirds ♥ sunsets and sunrises ♥ fog over the water in the early morning ♥ mountains and waterfalls ♥ tea related things ♥ milk chocolate ♥ stickers, embellishments ♥ as much as I love angels, both ministering and warrior, I don't care for anything the stores have to offer in the way of pictures or figurines as they are represented as females only.. there are no female angels in the Bible.. if someone knows of a verse telling us about females ones, I would like to know of it ♥ Snoopy by Charles Schultz ♥ the smell of newly cut grass ♥

I love writing letters and have been writing since I was a child starting with my maternal gramma and I've had the same pen pals for years now. I enjoy baking and cooking and the outdoors to relax, walk, and garden. I like to sit out back on the deck in the morning with a coffee and read or visit with my neighbour. I also like packets of nice hot milk chocolate and hot apple cider. I like putting together meals with a celebration in mind like having a Mexican or Italian or German potluck and decorating the house. It's fun to have people come over with all these new dishes to try. I prefer scratch baking and cooking and implement as little as possible anything that is boxed or canned. I have finally mastered making a flaky pie crust ~ I love pies :o) When baking breads and buns I do not like caraway seeds but then one doesn't have to add them in anyway. Otherwise I can't think of a bread or bun recipe I wouldn't like other than sourdough (love a good pumpernickel).

I am of French and Ukranian descent. My maternal great-grandparents were from Crookston, Minnesota and my grandparents were from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Both my parents were born in Fisher Branch MB.

There was a time when I was so frightened by thunderstorms but now I love them, and we don't get that many. I also love a good blizzard which we don't get too much of either. Those are good times to have tea or a pop and popcorn, or play a board game like RISK or Monopoly!

I collect envelopes of all sizes and colours, except those little mini ones. Sometimes I make some.

LIKES: I love pastel colors, purple, deep or muted greens and even lime green, red, shades of grey, white and lemon yellow. I don't like 'busy' patterns, but I like striking colour matches.

I like candles (both household candles and the PAPYRUS line of birthday candles as well as their stationary and cards), mugs, and snowmen, clocks and watches and tea, coffee, hot chocolate and chocolate (Lindt is nice, and Purdy's which is a company in British Columbia and Alberta, also our own Laura Secord), some tins, fruit, vegetables, writing paper, mugs and stickers (food, desserts, pretty woodland creatures, bunnies, frogs, ladybugs, deer, fox, Christian and holiday themed). I love note paper, note cards, pens, and bookmarks, strawberries and blueberries and mango, cranberries and wild rice, lemons, kitchen things (I love dishes). I would love a couple 4x6 blank recipe cards ...

I like flavoured teas and coffees but dislike Chai teas and no ginger tea, fennel, green teas or white teas, nor do I like pomegranate flavoured tea ~ thank you :o) I buy new teas all the time. I do not send out old teas.

I really like Bigelow & Pickwick teas as well as Twinings and some Stash. If anyone has any Pickwick Yoghurt teas ..that would be great! please do not send me loose tea leaves unless they are bagged from the manufacturer ~ thank you

I like holiday themed cards or paper but NOT any halloween or gothic or gory.

I like lemon, apple, pumpkin, and strawberry/rhubarb pies. Love homemade orange angel food cake and cookies and shortbread, and homemade puddings. Cupcakes are not only cute to look at but wonderful to eat! I like anything cupcake related. I love strawberry things whether they be stickers, note paper, strawberry scented pens, etc. I have a small teapot with strawberries on it. :o)

I enjoy fresh peas, carrots, tomatoes, and all the other yummy veggies from the garden like beets and squash. We eat mostly chicken and fish but I also like a great steak or roast, soups, salads and side dishes.

I would be very interested in exchanging recipes. :o) I don't mind them being typed out or photocopied from the magazine or book they are from.

POSTCARDS seasons, doors, clocks, recipe postcards, chocolates, breads, military, Lord of The Rings, historical sites, maps from all countries (your state, province), postal boxes, mountains, airplanes, bridges, trains, 'Did You Know' cards, and so on! Thank you. :o) All postcards in an envelope please as they stay clean and the edges are not bent, even if the swap says naked, I would really prefer an envelope (unless that's an extra cost to you).

I like both the Lancome and Merle Norman skin care and seem to be easing my way more into the Merle Norman. This is just useless info ~ I'm not expecting anything from anyone!

TRAVEL/PEOPLE/COUNTRIES: I haven't done much traveling. Been to all the provinces west of us and to one province east of us. I would like to one day see all of Canada. I been been down as far as North Carolina and really liked it. Would like to see Kentucky, Connecticut, Phillidelphia and a few others. As far as International goes I would like to see Ireland, Israel, the UK, Russia, Austria and Belgium. Seeing everything and everywhere would be wonderful! I would very much like to go to Belgium for its sites, chocolate, and lace, as well as in France.

People are so incredibly interesting. We are so different and so much the same. I wish we all had more compassion and patience with each other. I wish we were more comfortable with each other and what we need are more hearty laughs and bear hugs!

DISLIKES: no glitter on cards ~ I dislike that shiny stuff all over my face, floor, and everywhere I don't like anything to do with The Simpsons, Mr Bean, skulls or halloween or Harry Potter. Nothing to do with Buddhism, New Age, astrology, wiccan, nor do I 'worship' things that have been created as they were made for our enjoyment only. I can't say that I like multi-view postcards or cartoon themed things (I like Snoopy and Peanuts). No dotee dolls or dolls of any kind. I don't like hard candies or gummies, but funny thing is I do like our maple candies and jelly beans :o). I DON'T LIKE walnuts. :o) no Chai teas, no pomegranate, no ginger or jasmine tea no squid or lobster recipes ~ my family won't eat that so I won't cook with it ..thanks! :o)

WISH LIST: ** fruity teas, lemon, orange, raspberry ~ I like Stash and Twinings brand names among others ** anything to do with strawberries, lemons, oranges, raspberries, as in stationery, envelopes, teas, etc ** Christian anything ** polar bears, fruit, kitchen, camping, tea cup or teapot related, outdoors - pretty much any stickers except for teacher ones or numbers/alphabet ** cupcake recipes, stationery or note cards and envelopes ** love things Canadian and red and white ** a lot of what would be in my wishlist is also in my likes list **

Some of you people are so incredibly artistic and creative. I'm not there but I will enjoy doing some crafting.

If anyone is interested, I'm up for private swaps. :o)

Response: We do like these cupcakes. All our ovens are different plus changes in where we live affect baking, so check a couple minutes early just in case. Sometimes my baking is ready at least 5 minutes sooner than the recipe calls for. Thank you very much for the rating and the heart, Saira!

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes! They put a smile on my face.
