I'm a misplaced country girl living in the burbs! I got drafted to become a live-in Nanny for my first grandchild, and while it is a great job, talking to grownups every now and again is appreciated!
What to say about me: I wear cheaters, as you can see, am fairly sound and my teeth are my own. I exercise (but am not a zealot) and eat healthily. I adore good music, and my current favorite is young Josh Groban; my favorite CW singer is Alison Krauss who also plays a mean fiddle! I like Wagner's Tristan Und Isolde, "My Heart At Thy Sweet Voice" from Samson and Delilah, and tons of other operatic love songs! I used to play guitar, banjo, autoharp, dulcimer, and still bang away at the keyboard when I find the time. I'm quite a musical sap, really.
I also enjoy getting on the internet and diggin' for family history. I attend the temple as often as I can sneak away and love to do sealings. I enjoy learning more about the world, people, ideas; I watch BBC and PBS specials, mysteries and good sci-fi. I'd do more traveling if my tether was longer. I've gardened in the past and will do it again some day when time permits!
My roots are in Southeast Alaska so I cherish a good driftwood bonfire, digging clams, beachcombing. I don't do well in intense heat because the webbing between my toes and fingers starts to dry up. Therefore living in the Great Pacific "Northwet" with all the rain is awesome!
As a convert, patience, tolerance and kindness rate higher than perfection, for which so many around me seem to strive. Perhaps that quality will sneak up on us when we are least suspecting, say in the middle of some challenging service project with our hands dirty, brows sweaty, and eyes teary!
Church Service? I've pretty much done it all, and loved teaching seminary probably the best... because it was the hardest. I'd like to serve a couple's mission.
I'm looking for a kind, decent sort of fella, with a sense of humor, toally loyal, a good confidant, fun to be around, maybe even likes to cook! If you drive a pick up truck, that's a big plus! I like haulin' stuff!
