About Me

I was raised in South Florida back in the years when it was a peaceful and wonderfully safe place to live. We lived a mile from the beach and could ride our bikes over the intercoastal bridge right to the best beach around. All my years of growing up I was a competitive swimmer and belonged to AAU. I granduated from Florida State University with a BS degree in nursing. I am recently retired but I'm thinking of going back to work to support my hobbies.

The start of a new year always brings on all sorts of feelings about turning over a new leaf, doing things that we should have done last year, etc.  Well, I've decided that I need to get rid of my birds - they're a lot of trouble, the cage is always in constant need of cleaning, and we had a rather discouraging breeding season this past year.  I have 12-14 finches in the cage, and they are very messy.  They're moulting, and feathers are all over the place - as well as seed, etc.  I've had them for a few years, and my husband would like for me to get them out of the house also.  So..... I have offered to sell the cage and the birds to a friend of mine for $250.00.  The cage is a glass enclosed piece of furniture (made of oak with claw feet - really quite beautiful).  My husband made it for me for Christmas years ago when I started keeping birds.  I do hate to part with it, but it does take up a large space in the living room, and, without the birds, I have no use for it.  I guess you could say that I'm moving on.  I did make a deal with him that I could have one little blue parakeet to keep me company.

In three days I'm going to a 4 days crop.  Five or six of us will be staying in an old Victorian house that is set up for scrapbooking.  It has special lights at each spot with electrical plugs and nice large office-type chair to sit in - quite nice.  There are also bedrooms on three levels and a full kitchen.  It'll be so nice to just get away for a few days from these constant household chores of cleaning up after the Holidays.  At least I did get the tree and decorations down and put up.  I probably won't have Internet access, so it might be a few days before you hear from me after I leave.  I hope to work on a mini album for my Christmas pictures and also one of the kits I purchased from Kathy Orta at Paper Phenomenon.  I think I'll work on the February 2012 kit.  Talk to you later.
