Hello swap friends! I am Tracy, a registered social worker. I just starting a new job which I love. I provide social work for 130 residents in a private care home. The team and programs are so stimulating and intriguing. Plus I get to be in the helping role again after taking a couple years off work during the whole great resignation stage of the covid pandemic.

I am 3 years into farming on my little 15 acres within city limits. What a learning curve! Who knew we would have emus and highland cows? We had 2 gorgeous calves born this month. The cultivated gardens on this property are so pretty and well thought out by the previous owners. My husband and I have managed to rent the grounds as a wedding venue right through Summer 2025. We also have 2 Air BNBโ€™s on the grounds; it is like travelling without leaving home, we meet so many interesting people.

I volunteer delivering Meals on Wheels to elderly people; the school breakfast program; Rotary annual fundraiser dinner with silent auction; and this weekend I am doing a one off working the kitchen at Coldest Night of the Year to help raise funds and awareness for the homeless in our city.

Like virtually everyone, I love to travel, whether it be girls trips, going away with my husband or group travel. I really admire people who solo travel but have only done this once, to Guatemala. Although it changes, if I had to list my top interesting areas I have travelled, Iโ€™d say: Orinoco delta in Venezuela; Greenland; Iceland; Channel Islands; Varanasi, India; Cappadocia; El Salvador & Nicaragua; Haida Gwaii; Japan; Hawaii; Laos & Cambodia. In March we are going to Texas to see Madonna then driving the Gulf Coast over to Panama City Beach Florida.

Things that I enjoy: Anything wacky Friendship Booklets/Sheets Pass Along Things ATCโ€™s Nature, wild lands, hiking, foraging, essential oils Cooking with spice Social innovation Mythology, history, world affairs Literary Fiction My lively menagerie of farm animal friends My husband and his relentless brainstorming and business endeavours (he is primarily a portfolio manager) Friendships - mini adventures with friends - recently there was Menopause Cafe ๐Ÿคช, thrift stores, a wine lovers dinner and an essential oil cosmetic and soap making workshop.

Wish List: Thrift/previously worn earrings, necklaces, brooches Vintage postcards and other postcards including ad cards Stickers, washi B&W vintage photos Date of first issue stamped envelopes ATCs Friendship Books & Pass Along Things Seeds Bookmarks Return address labels. Postage stamps - new or used Coins Low denomination paper money Stationery, note paper, rice paper, washi, stickers Tea Ephemera

I don't care for cutesy/girlie things. I am not religious but still appreciate religious symbols.

Some of the best things I have ever received through swap-bot swaps are: disco globe clip on earrings, art by Cara Williams, a petrified clam, a feather from a great horned owl, ATCโ€™s, foreign coins, quills, Greek magnet, needlepoint, cat teeth from a humane shelter (strange but Iโ€™ll take it! Haha), photos of someoneโ€™s hamster, a hand-made anti-racism booklet with illustrations. Thank-you!!!! I love this community and its connections. I have met a few penpals (from Austria, Ukraine and Surinam) and love doing so. If you are ever planning a penpal meet up, invite me! With advance notice, I am likely to come out.

Happy swapping.

Thank you so much for the great surprise! No one has ever sent me something in return for a swap. You really made my week with your kind gesture. I will pay it forward.
