I like to travel, and I like the outdoors very much, including hiking, hunting, and other activities such as canoeing, fishing, and bicycling. I also enjoy watching birds at a feeder, or going out to do some bird watching. I am interested in museums, history and experiencing the great outdoors. I am more comfortable alone or with a small group than I am in the company of many others. I am shy, quiet, have no children at home; have not seen my one child for many years and that's okay; have been divorced since 1995; seldom date; am a thinker, intelligent, sensitive, and need oceans of love. I do not know the meaning of the word "sassy, " as I am respectful, humble and loving. I prefer problem solving for great results rather than arguing or fighting (ugh!) . I have been dying my formerly auburn/brown hair (now salt'n'pepper grey) medium brown for about 20 years now, as I began to go gray even in my 20s. With proper sleep, I look much younger; some former colleagues have even mistaken me as a 20-year old when I was in my 40s! I am writing a book and am editing the rough draft of it now. I also have been working on weight loss. I have gone down two sizes in the past three months, by eating less and walking 3-6 miles almost every day. I plan to continue this until I am reach about 100 pounds and can stay there. My other goals in life include doing more of the things I enjoy, getting my writings published, and finding and getting to know my soul-mate (future husband) -- the man God has for me.
