A little about me...
I've been a Registered Nurse for over 35 years, retired from a job that I loved Dec. 6th, 2014, and have been busier than ever! I make time for play, and see life as a great adventure :)
I'm an easy-going woman, with a great sense of humor, and the ability to laugh at myself-which seems to happen often :) I strive for spiritual growth, good health, eat right (ok..most of the time!), work out at the gym 3-4 times a week, and I avoid cigarette smoke ..
I enjoy a beer with a game of pool (not that great at pool, but I always have a great time), an occasional glass of wine with supper, and a margarita with Mexican food. I'm a lightweight drinker, and appreciate moderation in a companion.
The mountains and the ocean are special places to me, & being out of doors and anywhere near the water is a joy. I love canoeing & kayaking, road trips to out of the way places, farmer & flea markets, car shows, big trucks (18 wheelers) more than life itself, fairs, festivals, art shows, and photography.
I'm happiest wearing jeans & grilling with friends, yet can clean up real nice for an evening out. :)
I love football-pro and college- at the stadium or on TV, and go thru withdrawal when the seasons are over!
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm debt-free, and do not do drama. I'm attracted to emotionally strong, yet kind, confident, well-mannered men. And if you cook, you get big hero points from me.. :) Cooking has been my responsibility all my adult life, and 5 years ago I realized that I never had to cook again, if I chose not to, and I'm a good cook! I would feel happy if this were a shared responsibility.. :)
I believe in friendship first, and if a solid foundation of friendship can be built, then I want joy, romance, adventure, smiles, an open mind and an open heart, a great love affair, whispering and laughing together, more romance, more adventure, & all mixed up with a lot of humor & so much kindness...feeling our own warmth and love of life, and giving ourselves goose bumps all over.
I would feel pleasure in being with a man who is complete without me, who takes care of his own home and bills, as I do, and yet would be happy to make room in his life for me. Someone who is self-motivated, health conscious, who is not plagued with jealousy, and who is on his own path of spiritual growth. I would feel happiest sharing dreams and desires with this man, and being committed to the company that we’ve chosen to keep…whatever form that may take.
I'd just like to add...
As for music, I love listening to oldies, R & B, smooth jazz, some country, some opera and some musicals, And then there are times when I just love sitting outside and listening to the quiet, the crash of surf, a good storm, or the songs of birds.
I enjoy the company of my friends, and family, and am equally content to be by myself when others are not around.
Animals, wild and domestic, hold a special place in my heart, and I have great respect for them and the quality of their lives. I've done animal rescue for years, and will take in any creature in need, with the goal of healing and re-locating it. The animals that live with me are rescues (3 cats and 3 dogs-the possum that moved under my house last winter left in the Spring, but is welcome back :), and I cannot imagine life without these special creatures in it.
I enjoy talking to anyone about almost any topic, but if you are passionate about computers, and start talking to me about computer programming, I'll be looking at you like a chicken lookin' at a crossword puzzle!
If I've missed some area that is important to you, please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.
Good luck with your search, and many blessings~
