You don't sound boring to me. You are quite impressive taking off on your own. You sound very confident and capable, it's good!!! I am an animal lover too. I spend a lot of time with my dogs, we walk in the mountains a bunch. I am in south CA, not the quiet, calm mountain towns up north, but we do have nice beaches here, that's a plus. I like to garden and care for plants, I buy a lot of cut flowers and make bouquets. Lately I am into cactus. They are easy and pretty. I love going to restaurants and cooking. I like to bake too. I love to design and decorate. I do love antiques too - especially furniture and jewelry. I like records and garage sales. I also love 2 wheel vehicles. I am always riding around on some type of bike - we can do that almost the entire year here. I like all your travel ideas. I often have thoughts about
taking off up the coast here, maybe all the way up to Vancouver, come back down through Idaho/Montana or something... I have been across the US a few times, each time a different route, so I've been to a lot of states, but I missed a bunch too, and some I didn't get to see too much of.
It's miserably hot today. I can't get out at all. It's one of the worst days yet, very sweaty and gross. I saw you over on the UC board the other day. Nice to see you post over there.
Actually HW, this is my other hobby... You should keep working towards getting in to see someone good. It can help.
