A little about me...
I am a private, quiet person who prefers a quiet evening at home to the social scene. I love to cook and entertain and I do it well. I have recently retired from a job I loved and I miss it but I'm learning to enjoy this new chapter in my life.
I love the beach, thunderstorms, first snowfalls and spending time with my children and grandchildren. Warm weather is more to my liking than cold.
I was widowed 6 years ago after a 39 year marriage. My three girls, all grown now, are very important to me as are my 4 grandchildren. Two of my daughters live here locally and the older one lives out of state.
I've found that my house is really too big for just me, my cat and my dog but I love my home and can't find the courage to sell it and downsize. I seem to spend a lot of time updating, replacing and just trying to stay ahead of the upkeep.
About the one I'm looking for...
Not sure what I am looking for......I imagine that if I knew I wouldn't be writing this. I prefer someone who doesn't do anything in excess. Someone who enjoys sitting on the beach, taking a leisurely walk, watching the sun rise and set, driving back roads as opposed to freeways, cooking together or going out to dinner, an occasional trip to the casino and spending time with family seems ideal to me. I love to visit the Rio Grande Nature Center, the zoo, Bosque del Apache and NM ghost towns.
I'd just like to add...
I will not attempt contact with someone who wants to "tell me later" about themselves. Pictures are helpful as well. Out of state or under the age of 64 please refrain from sending messages.

My Top Interests:
I rarely follow a recipe to the letter. Prefer to get an idea from the recipe and make my own creation.
Family and Friends
I love spending time with my adult children...it's amazing what they have confessed to doing when they were kids!! I adore my grandchildren and have tried to build a special relationship with each of them.
I love to drive and prefer back roads to freeways. I have been to Europe but there are so many places I haven't seen in America.
