fairly new to this site, so don't give up on me, I'll figure it out! (LOL at myself)
I'm just a simple girl. (meaning no drama/games) Real. Intelligent,love the Lord and depend on Him daily. Youthful, playful, outdoorsy, zest for life, self-employed, artsy, creative. servant's heart. My heart's desire is to be matched with someone who will stimulate me to learn more about our God, whom i can share like ideas and beliefs with, who wishes to live with Him as our center.
I love to read, hike, bike ride, camp, kayak (although only been once!) cross country ski, snowshoe, sit around a campfire. then clean up and go to concerts/theater on occasion. I like to laugh and make others laugh. Like to study the Word, too. Am musical. Like to try new things, learn stuff. Plan on dance lessons next. have been remodeling my house - the never ending project! ugh. Little things make me really happy. (got the gate done!!!)
Raised 3 kids, lovin' on my grands. But now it's MY turn. I've got a 'bucket list'. do ours overlap?! Am enjoying this next stage of life. would like to have that other person who will be my "most important person" and I can be the same to him.
to address an issue I've noticed men comment on....my picture was taken in June, so yes, that is what I really look like. wrinkles, gray hair and all. :-) although people do comment that I do not look nor act my age! (YAY!)
no full body shot cause I want to WOW you in my skinny jeans, which I am working on that last 10 lbs to do. Had a health issue last year that made me gain, issue resolved and getting back into 'me' again.... (in '08, i wore my high school drill team outfit for a costume party)
My daughter got me started at her gym, which I thought would be boring. Now I LOVE it and enjoy the challenge. And how I am looking and feeling! i like to stay active, even if it's just the simplicity of a walk around the park with my granddaughter in her wagon.
i am a hard worker with an old-fashioned work ethic. sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Being self-employed, I can be flexible in my hours, but sometimes do have to be the energizer bunny and keep going and going and going.....other times, i depend on God to meet my need cause there's no work! He has never let me down, has always met my need and that of my family. i was the sole support of a family of 5 for 20 years, seen some great times, seen some slow, struggling times. don't know if I'd have the same deep faith i have now if life had been otherwise.
so, hmmmm, that's enough to get a conversation going, perhaps!
coffee, something with activity, play time, not somewhere too loud to talk! i would assume we have conversed enough to come up with a mutually enjoyable idea.
or, sometimes, I think maybe a little teaser....I tell you where I'm going to be (ex. the Art Show opening) and you can come find me and we can start this the 'old fashioned' way.....?! I AM a sappy romantic....
