I'm in a most comfortable place in my life at the moment. I have a new sense of empowerment since I'm getting older. I'm settled (mentally) for the first time in my life. I'm happier now that I've been involved in the American Legion Auxiliary and in Lufkin Community Partners and feel more outside of myself. I'm not striving anymore and I don't worry about having goals. It's nice. <br />
I like to ready cozy mysteries, keep up with the political scene in Texas and in Washington, D. C. I enjoy reading Rick Steves' Europe online. I'm an Irish Anglophile with an interest in languages, cooking, scrapbooking, quilling, embroidery, and crocheting. I like suspense movies and old westerns. I enjoy chatting online but haven't found anyone with my interests yet. I also am interested in lighthouses and would enjoy touring them but for now just enjoy collecting them and reading about them.
