Personal Information:
Have been a single mom since 1995. Two adult "boys".One still live at home as he is in university. Number 2 son has moved out and is still trying to figure out his life direction. I love to read. I was passionate about my job until January of 2018 when changes were forced upon us at work. I am now doing I job I don't love and I see only as a paycheque. That makes me sad. I still do the best I can do under the circumstances but it's different now. I love to travel, and in November of 2013, I was lucky enough to take a trip I've wanted to take since I was in my 20's. I visited Tanzania and Zanzibar! I would love my next big trip to be either an Amazon River Cruise or Morocco. I am also lucky enough to escape the cold every winter for a 1 or 2 week vacation south, on a beach. Did I mention I have a cat? He's 15 but thinks he's 2.

Other Information:
I love reading. Favourite authors: Patricia Cornwell, Tami Hoag, Michael Connelly to name a few. I read just about anything I can get my hands on.
Music: classic rock to jazz. Still can't learn to love classical.
Movies: You've Got Mail: Sleepless In Seattle; Hope Floats; Sweet Home Alabama; The Austin Powers Movies; The Mummy & Mummy Returns; .....geez, I could go on and on.
I enjoy knitting.
I do cross stitch
I love photography (maybe someday I'll be able to take a course of some type)
I spend too much time at the computer. Need to work on that.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and for your comment. It still amazes me that I felt such a bond with someone that I met over the Internet. Just goes to show you that it really doesn't matter how you meet someone, its about the bond that is created. Thanks again and I do appreciate you!

    "If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination.
    The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!"

    When you said your long May weekend always is lousy, I had to think you must be from Saskatchewan. Doesn't matter we are in another drought like last year, its almost guaranteed the May long weekend will be cold and overcast, though wimpy precipitation so far. Hope your Monday is nice, sure isn't here, good day to stay in and read. I enjoy the same author you do..
