About Me

ABOUT THE THREE: I was late on an email swap. Kind of bummed that a late electronic swap ruined over 1,000 stellar swaps. Rules are rules I guess. Just keep in mindβ€”I never flaked; I was just late.


If you prefer blank postcards in swaps, join my group "Postcard Stashers" that deals with swaps requiring blank postcards only.


REGARDING SWAPS:
1) Even if there's a note or paper inside, please put the swap name somewhere on the envelope, too.
2) If choices are allowed, my postcard preference is blank in an envelope.

I am an avid reader (by heart), romantic (by nature), 61 (by years alive), French (by design), Canadian (by birth), Ontario (by residency), engaged (by choice), Pentecostal/born-again (by faith) and loved (by God and all who know me).

I am also a freelance editor, writer, and founder of Halcyon Days Magazine at (http://halcyondaysmagazine.blogspot.ca).

Fav Colors, Scents, & Tastes

My favorite color schemes are teal green/blue and coral or purple tones, hunter green, or ocean colors. My favorite flower and scent is Lily-of-the-Valley. For cooking or tastes, I'm a fan of anything with cinnamon, chocolate, lemon and orange in it.

Comment: Same for me. I like to take my daughter out for a piece of cake and milkshake. We actually went to get our first take away last night for well over a year but it wasn't what I expected.

Comment: Thank you for the Baltimore postcard dated March 16. It only took 35 days to make its way here. I wonder what adventures it has to tell. I'm hoping that the true is that you won a singing contest and not the picking all winning lottery numbers but didn't play. That would be very disappointing if you didn't win the lottery. Thanks for making my day!
Response: Your choice: False! I did play all numbers, showed my mother with shaking hands (she was in the middle of a bingo game). I lost out on $6 million dollars...
