I've never been to the Pacific Northwest, it seems to be an area with a lot of people interested in sustainable living. I've wanted to visit because temperate rain forest and volcanos.
I'm not sure I've ever wanted to live there, though, because constant rain and volcanos.
Is that something you think about?
I live in Huntsville AL, and have done for much of my life. We grew up knowing the place was on the map for nuclear strike, if the cold war went hot.
Every place has something.
Now that I've wildly wandered down tangential thought lane, and probably you're a kind enough soul that you've read this far, to the task at hand.
To whit: I am also seeking a life partner and a forever home.
About me? I am 47. I successfully raised two kids who have decided to also raise kids. I am a grandmother of three.
Currently I share my mother's home. She isn't in the best of health. On the lifestyle front, I'm the girl that puts food up every year, and proceeds to eat out of my freezer. (I prefer that to canning, canning frequently involves so. much. salt.) I do volunteer at my local garden, I grow flowers and some herbs in the yard. Also, 3 pecan trees.
I don't try to grow food, because despite the fact that I do, in fact, live inside the city limits in an actual subdivision, we have deer, rabbits, moles, skunk, possum, and the usual assortment of chipmunks and squirrels. We've had coyotes and foxes pass through at night.
In short, I frequently have no flowers except lavender and verbena. Also, my dogs eat well, whether I feed them or not.
I am very interested in aquaculture, land rehabilitation, and the conundrum that is 'green building'.
I am someone who believes that vaccinations are one of the best things to come out of the scientific revolution.
And I've probably rambled on for long enough.
