A little about me...
Young at heart, nature and animal lover, child of God. I am a career woman who likes to keep busy. No couch potato here . . . if I don’t accomplish a few things around the house each night, I feel like a bum. During the warmer months, I love working in my huge yard. I actually enjoy mowing . . . hey, guys, did you catch that? I can never have too many trees, shrubs, and flowers. My mom, grandma and sister have all had flower gardens. I am not quite into the vegetable gardening although I enjoy eating all veggies. My mom had two vegetable gardens and would pick buckets of produce before us kids would even be awake in the morning. Then she would get us up to help pod peas, snap beans, pit cherries, cut corn, wash spinach, etc.
I grew up in a small rural Kansas town, was married for 23 years, divorced since ’02, have one daughter who is married and gave birth to the first grandchild in May 2009. Oh, it is so great to be a Grandma, and it only gets better! And I am enthralled watching her grow through my Grandma eyes. We are best buds and look forward to our weekly sleep overs.
About the one I'm looking for...
Although I keep busy, I feel like I am still not whole without a man to complete me. Many of my girlfriends are content living out the rest of their lives without a partner, but I don’t think that is true for me. I have become quite self-sufficient and the little fixer-upper around the house. But I miss the companionship at home, when travelling, shopping, eating out, etc. I am a big gal and would prefer someone relative in form. My Dad’s side of the family was/is over 6’ tall and that is what I am comfortable with, although I am short (5’5”) like my Mom was. I have too much life and love to give up the search for Mr. Right.
I am looking for a man who is honest, kind, hard working, enjoys home projects, a family man and someone who can make me laugh.
I'd just like to add...
I am a very thrifty person; I buy/stock up when groceries are on sale. The thrift stores are constantly calling my name! I not only buy for myself but watch for things that I know family and friends would like. I have a list in my head! I rarely go to the malls and expensive department stores. I am happier with my bargains. I also enjoy browsing antique shops (I have 6 or 7 really nice pieces of antique furniture), going to auctions (which I haven’t done for years), listening to music, custom car shows, growing orchids and landscaping.
