Love road trips with my husband and when we can , our son who is finishing his last year of university. Would say we are empty nesters but with our four dogs Walt, Harry, Stan and Lilly, that just isn't true! I am a commercial banker by day, love to run, love our village life, and our old house which we are gradually renovating and restoring and improving ... its a lot of fun and work. I enjoy jaunts to our local bakery and regular stops at our favourite restaurants which range from an awesome true road side diner, to a more upscale bistro with lots of casual, Indian and other cuisines in between... cheese from our local cheese shop with wine is a favourite meal now ... so yes I guess we are empty nesters after all! I am a baker versus being much of a cook. I like tea AND coffee. Salt, savoury and sweet. And only real maple syrup will do. I prefer dramas and police type TV shows, and certain cheesier shows, to reality TV (and I suppose the obvious that yes, I still watch TV vs youtube, etc). I use Facebook to share photos, keep in touch with friends and play scrabble. We enjoy Disney World as much exploring museums and quaint, interesting places. Love big cities like New York, London and Chicago as much as rural places, mountains and camping. Lived in and around Vancouver, BC for 10 years and love the pacific coast ... the Oregon Coast is amazing. Family and friends are more important than anything.
