I live in Southwest Florida with newly wed husband and my four wonderful cats. I love living in the Sunshine State and am ready to pull out the sweaters when it turns a chilly 70 degrees. I am originally from Long Island, but lived in Summerville, South Carolina for a year and a half before moving down here. I am hoping to stay still for quite a while now I believe I’m still sore from moving that last time.
I work Monday through Friday 8-5 in a cubicle. I daydream about opening a knitting/ book/ coffee/ tea shop. I’m very shy to begin with and my sales skills are less than optimum so I’m not sure how well I’d do at my own business. Plus I certainly do not have the money to open a business. I can enjoy my daydreams in the meantime. I’m also hoping to go back to school for my bachelor’s in accounting. I majored in English the first time around (and I use it EVERY day).
I love my life and my many hobbies. I obviously knit- a lot! It is my therapy. I read once that knitter’s tend to have busy minds and cannot do only one thing at once. It is a way of keeping at peace. Then again, I also know that people in mental facilities are taught to knit and crochet as well. I don’t know if I’m really smart or really crazy- perhaps both. I can’t just sit and watch tv or sit in the passenger’s seat of the car. Knitting is handy too. You can bring it almost anywhere (if you are going on a plane- bring bamboo needles instead of metal and leave the scissors home).
I also love reading. I devour books. I love the library. The last book I read was Moloka’i by Alan Brenning. Did I mention that I have a walk in closet and one wall is made up of books! Yes, I love them more than clothes. I do paint occasionally but haven’t done it in a while because I always make a mess. I used to write short stories and poetry, but haven’t delved into it lately.
