I love to chat but love more to listen. Leisure time is spent reading, gardening, cooking, more cooking and (website hidden) has always been an interest and favorite activity! In the winter it's more handwork, travel and entertaining. Movies? Yes...TV?...not really. Music?...in love with many different styles from classical and jazz to bluegrass. Feathering my nest is always fun and sharing the nest with friends and family is what it's all about.
When on the road (staying in a hostel, fine hotel or private home), I take pride in leaving a place as I find it or better. Being a respectful guest/traveler has always been important to me.
