I pride myself on having a really comfy, clean and quiet house with a cozy backporch and little yard. Right now I live with my two aging cats and a wonderful roommate from Egypt. I work as a special education teacher and so I have regular work hours with glorious summer vacations. My roommate works from 3:30 to midnight so he sleeps in and leaves the house later in the day. I have one daughter who is in her last year of college at Loyola in New Orleans.
I love meeting people from different countries and learning about their cultures. When I was younger I traveled a lot. Now that I don't have the freedom to be on the go as much as I would like, I have found that having people from other countries visit me is a way of having travel happen in my own home!
I am a fan of the arts - I especially enjoy public art and sculpture gardens. I also enjoy cooking and sharing new food experiences with friends. I love to read and enjoy good TV drama, especially BBC productions. I'm also a big fan of public radio. I believe in karma and try my best not to sweat the small stuff.
