Retired from municipality after 20+ years. Work from home for a gifts company. I am a spiritual person who is not in church every Sunday. I have been single a long time now & am NOT interested in dating. I am only interested in building friendships. I love to read, mostly mysteries. I enjoy being out in nature, exploring, hiking, fishing & kayaking. I like to visit area State Parks but my Fibromyalgia limits me especially in the hottest months. I am a winter warrior. I love all animals & have been involved with rescue & fostering for many years. I have 3 fur-babies ranging in age from 5 months to 18 years. I build wooden ships, something I did with my Grandfather many, many years ago. I only recently began doing again. I am terrible at it but it is fun. My dining area is now my workshop. I enjoy DIY projects around the house & yard. My friends call me a bit of a survivalist as I have all kinds of rechargeable solar powered lights & fans, a stash of candles & batteries, canned food & propane heaters. They laugh at me until the power goes out & then my phone is constantly ringing. I have recently began taking my health & fitness much more seriously. I am eating healthier & more clean but that is not to say I don't still want a cheeseburger, fries & chocolate shake once in a while. I am enjoying trying new recipes & spices. I have turned half my home office into workout/gym space. I enjoy movies & great conversation. I like to keep learning.
