Here is the link for the book I wrote: Seventy Times Seven

Hello, it's me!

Here is who I am, all in living color! Pinterest I'd have put it at the top where it belongs, but it won't post up there!

I'm a 67-year-old Christian woman, love country living, and I'm a hard-core bookworm! I collect antique books (esp old Bibles). My oldest Bible was printed in 1883.

I love old things, and still have my old stamp collection that Dad helped me start when I was a kid.

I can't sing worth a nickel, but I love music.

I like to feed the birds and wildlife around our home.

We had a beautiful black Labrador who was too smart for his (our!) own good! Sadly, we had to say goodbye to Beau in June of 2020. We will always remember him with love. I don't know if another dog would ever meet the standard of awesomeness that he set.

I've been married to my sweetheart for 7+ years. We had both lost our previous spouses to death. We enjoy traveling, and have cruised to The Bahamas, Mexico, and have gone to Hawaii several times. Hawaii is always nice:)

I like good clean jokes, meeting new people, vintage cars, snow, the beach, and chocolate.

I've recently discovered that I love sea salt and caramel!

My favorite color is purple, but I also like pink, green, red...really, anything but orange and brown.

Things I dislike are anything to do with horoscopes, homosexuality, the devil, skulls, death, psychic stuff, Halloween.

I'll never join any swaps for lotions, bubble bath and the like because I'm very allergic to all of it.

What is the appeal of kale? I see so many articles about how great kale is. Kale is nasty!

Favorite Music

Adele, Susan Boyle, Jackie Evancho, 50's hits Phillip Phillips--I could listen to his song "Home" all day long! I also like The Righteous Brothers, Patsy Cline, Henry Mancini, Frank Sinatra, Hank Williams SR, not JR! Randy Travis, awesome singer.

When I was 15, I had plans to marry Neil Diamond, but he never asked! Shy, I guess.

I like the sound of Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, Train.

If you want to hear an incredible version of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, look up Etta James and get her to sing it for you. Guaranteed to thrill your soul♥

Favorite Television

Love all the old Murder, She Wrote shows, as well as McGyver. Enjoy the X Factor and American Idol. That's about it for TV. I'm not much of a TV watcher. Well, also love all of the old MASH shows! They were great! In the Heat of the Night was really good, too.

Favorite Books

I'll buy anything by Debbie Macomber; she is a consistently fabulous writer! I like all the Sue Grafton mysteries. In fact, I have every one that she's written! I've recently got hooked on the Spencer Quinn mysteries. They're written from the perspective of the dog, and they are really, really good! Francine Rivers is an excellent author. I also like Max Lucado, Robin McGraw

Two books that I have read multiple times, and loved them each time, are A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and Celia Garth.

I love words!

Words fascinate me! I will play any word game that you can come up with! I'll even play Scrabble with myself. I am also a published writer.

About Me

Here are some of the things that I love:

Old letters from estate sales, old written postcards, stamps, old books, especially old Bibles. Vintage magazines. If it is old and smelly, I'll love it, lol! Just don't send me your great-uncle Jack!

Bitten by the Bug!

I've been bitten by that washi bug! I managed to escape it for a long time, but it got me after all. I don't yet have a lot to swap, but I've a feeling that will change soon! I'm specifically looking for vintage looks, typewriters, cameras, books, writing, word themed tapes. But I also like feathers, flowers, animals, the ocean/beach, vintage kitchen tools, birds, Black Labradors, and purple polka dots♥

Tea For Two?

I like tea; there are not many I dislike. Green tea does nothing for me. Yes I know it's supposed to be good for me, but so is kale, and you all know how I feel about that!

In my tea canister, there is Constant Comment, Earl Grey Double Bergamot, Ginger Peach, Raspberry, and Mint. Fruity, minty, or spicy, that's what I like.
