Because of life experiences, I'm a VERY open minded person. I have a little bit of low self esteem but not nearly as bad as earlier in my life. I'm not fond of being in large groups for any length of time but would much rather be with one or two people. YES! I am an introvert. I'm mechanicly inclined and have been since a child. I can weld, do wood working and carpentry, plumbing, rebuild engines, build electronics as well as a little masonery. I've never been afraid to tackle anything in life except maybe depression. I've always enjoyed challenges in life and still do. I know if I put the effort into something, I can accomplish it. I've had a social phobia from the time I can remember until about 12 or so years ago. I'm sure it was from low self esteem. I've had major depression for about 15 years that I know of and I suspect I've had some form of depression all my life. I'm adopted and had wonderful parents. As a child, I can remember a lot of fun and happy times but I also remember a lot of lonliness. It makes me wonder if I was born with some depression. If you would like to know more about me, I have written some blogs "memories of my life". It will give you some insight of the real me I suppose. I'm VERY easy to get along with and it takes a LOT to upset me. When I'm really upset, it's not a pretty sight. LOL I think a lot... if something is bothering me, I think about it a lot before I act. I try to think before I say things so as not to upset someone. I hate saying something and it not come out like I really meant and felt.


Listening to waves crashing on a beach. Looking at the stars. Watching people. A nice campfire. Sitting in a hot tub when it's snowing. People that really care, travel. I love music but have days I have a hard time listening to it. Love to see and learn others cultures.

I don't like "control". Don't like controlling people nor controlling governments. Everyone should be free to do as they like as long as they aren't bothering others. Is it too much to ask that we all get along? Don't like abuse of any kind... MANY catagories. Did I mention that I don't like depression and how it affects my life? :)

Hi Bernie. Nice to have your step-son help you with your drywalling. That'll make things easier on you. Thanks Bernie... She'll be missed by many. I wish, I would of made an effort to go and visit her when her mind was still well. I do regret that. I know she lived across the Country, but I could of still made the effort and went no matter the cost. Actually, the crows don't bother me anymore. There's an owl statue that they seem to be more interested in. They squawk at it, swoop at it, and try to bully it. Nothing they do is going to make it fly away LOL. The crows at first, were all scared of it, but they are figuring it out that this thing is no longer a threat. Now, they just land close by and ignore it. It's the neighbour's owl. You commenting on your vine of grapes... that made me think about me wanting to try growing grapes in my backyard. I may try growing them next spring. It is probably too late to plant them now. Nice harvest you are getting from that vine! Happy Sunday!!! =D

When we were on the lake we had live oak which are beautiful, but it seemed each tree was on a little different schedule and there were lots of smaller leaves falling. Can't have it all perfect, right? We have some palm in the front of the house here, a couple of smaller oak on the side and oak in the back. Ben will enjoy burning the oak in outdoor fires. We have no fireplace here. Wally didn't do too bad with the fireworks and I fell asleep about the time they started and slept through them. LOL Wally does not like thunder. He gets very restless.
Hope your day is going good. I was up early to go to 8:00 church services. Have already had a nap since coming home. I'm a real sleepy head. :) Hugs, Liz

Happy Independence Day! We're relaxing and staying home. They're celebrating in town with a parade and craft show in the park. There will be fireworks this evening which will drive Wally nuts. There are quite a few golfers on the course today. We are going to do hotdogs this evening and maybe sit out in the yard where we can see the fireworks. The tree that lost its top wasn't a very good tree, but the trouble is it is caught among trees beside it. We will probably have to pay to have it removed. It was a Scrub Oak on the lot we have next door. They really don't have a long life anyway. We cut quite a few off the lot we built the house on. They make a mess with falling leaves and acorns. They aren't very pretty either. My husband hates them. LOL Hugs, Liz

Bernie, I know you must be excited to be able to see some light at the end of the tunnel as far as your reworking your house to put up for sale. Yes, we do grow avocados in Florida. It's not one of my favorites, so we've never tried. We have to have one tree taken down. The wind blew the top out of it. It needed to come down anyway. I hope they catch the guys who set the fires. Hate to see anyone get away with this sort of crap. No, we have nothing special planned for the weekend. Have a good day! Hugs, Liz

I have done many things that I've enjoyed. Some I still do, some I would do again and may some day. I've enjoyed snow mobiling, Jet Ski's, snorkeling as well as skuba diving, parachuting out of a perfectly good airplane, snow skiing and water skiing and still love hunting, fishing and camping as well as anything to do with the outdoors. I enjoy wood working and seeing what I can produce with my own hands.
