I love sarcasm and quick wit. Nothing is better then the banter between two equally matched people. It creates a joie de vivre that is all too rare anymore.
Beauty to me is like a stained glass window. It's pretty. But it's dull, drab. It's only when there's something else that shines through & illuminates it does the window sparkle. A woman with an inner light can light up an entire world with her smile.
I love to cook - so I don't do it for a living. It's fun and I want to keep it that way. If I'm cooking just for me, a fast quiche, cinnamon orange chicken, or a dutch baby. If its for someone else... I want to show off a bit, so I'd have to get to know your tastes first. Warning, my chocolate custard is dangerous.
I travel when I can, which is sometimes spur of the moment. Last year I jumped a plane to Puerto Rico, just to get out of town for a week. This year its been shorter trips closer to home. Still want to go to Australia, and parts of Europe.
I have to admit, my house gets the majority of my free time right now. I stripped & repainted the exterior, then put on a new roof - finished it Dec 30, 2015. I'll rebuild the garage roof this year - hopefully the last of the "big" projects.
