What's Happening in my Life

Quick Update: I was sick since 27 Dec 2023 thru 13 Jan 2024. Broncholitis.

Just finished up the 2022/2023 Book Swap. Going to take a break & will be back again with new Book Swaps. Keep reading & keep swapping. God Bless.

Hey, checkout the following: www.paperbackswap.com or just let me know if you want a list of what I got available. 200 plus BOOKS listed-Will Swap for other books.

FOR BOOK SWAPS-IF YOU CAN SEND HARDBACK OR LARGE PRINT, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT. I AM HAVING A HARD TIME READING THE SMALL PRINT. JUST A REQUEST. Don't worry if you cannot. I love ALL Books.

Just finished the 9th book in WILDLIFE JUSTICE SERIES by Todd A. Vandivert. Fiction based on Todd's experience as a Game Warden in the State of Washington. Can be found on Amazon.com.

Childrens Books: Can be found on Amazon.com I have read "The Runaway" written & illustrated by my niece, Marianne Cooper Also, can be found on Amazon.com & Marianne has released her 2nd Book "Try and Stop Me".

FAVORITE BOOKS: I read/collect ALL Nora Roberts & J.D. ROBB books. Finally got to meet Nora Roberts 13 Sept 2014 in Boonsboro, MD at Turn the Page Bookstore. I love Clive Cussler - think Dirk Pitt is my "dream date". And now REACHER by Lee Child. (Watching the Series) James Patterson-Women's Murder Mystery Club/David Baldacci/Brad Meltzer. I collect Christmas love stories/ Titanic fiction/Loch Ness fiction. I went to the Titanic exhibition in Atlanta, GA & again near Dollywood & actually touched the Titanic! Although I am 73 years old, I enjoy reading Young Adult books - Harry Potter series/Percy Jackson series/Shiver/Grimm Sisters/Cherub. Also, suggest everyone read DEWEY-The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron based on a true story. A funny, informative, awesome story- you will laugh & you will cry. www.deweyreadmorebooks.com. I Love any Book that is a-1st in a Series, any genre or Biographies.

THANK YOU to ALL Swap-botters who follow through with sending and rating. I try to rate as soon as I receive.

Now for all you wonderful Swap-botters who read the Profiles and still don't know what to make or give- Just PM and I will give you more info relevant to that particular Swap.


ABOUT ME: I am now RETIRED as an Administrative Assistant/DATA Technician-fancy TITLE for Secretary) at the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Va-18 years. Before 19 years, I was with the Dept of the Army at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md/Edgewood Arsenal; Ft. Monmouth, NJ; and Ft. Belvoir, Va.

BELIEF: I am a Baptist. I attend Bethel Baptist Church in Bethlehem, GA since 2016. Small church-about 30 active members. I am very active - so much more since I retired. I was baptized when I was 9 years old. I did attend other churches to learn & at 38 years old recommitted my life to the God of my understanding. I am making a daily effort to study and learn. Every week, I learn something new and /or understand and have the WOW moment.

FAVORITE JEWELRY: Anything w/August Birthstone (Peridot), Hearts, Crosses, especially Holiday themed Earrings. Not too big. I do like to make Earrings. I use broken jewelry to make art pictures. DO NOT ever wear rings.

FAVORITE COLORS: Green and Pink

FAVORITE MUSIC: I love both kinds of music - country and western!! Ha! Ha! for those who remember the Blues Brothers. Garth Brooks is my favorite Male Singer & Reba McIntyre is my favorite Female Singer. Heavenly Singers are ELVIS, (Just saw the new Movie last week), Patsy Cline, Joey Feek. My newest obsession is Drake Milligan and Chapel Hart. Check YouTube.

FAVORITE MOVIES: Aquaman/Jason Mamoa!!, Elvis Presley in Blue Hawaii, anything with Arnold S- got to love a man with muscles & attitude. I really enjoy action films with John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Nicholas Cage, Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris, Jason Stratham, Jack Hughman, Dwayne Johnson and ARNOLD!!

FAVORITE TV: I am a TV addict & watch everything. I love watching You Tube videos about everything-so educational.

FAVORITE CRAFTS: Crochet, jewelry making, I love Bling and Glitter is my Friend.

GREETING CARDS: If there is a choice - I would like handmade (I keep a Scrapbook for ideas) but if you cannot make one than the store bought will be just fine. Request that you do not Write on the back of the Front card. It will probably get recycled into another card, postcard or ATC.

TEAS: Do not drink TEA.

After reading one of the forums, I decided to add: LIST OF THINGS I DO NOT WANT/NEED: Alcohol related items Wedding items Baby things Yarn Tea Kawaii Dark things as in depressing/goth Santa Claus Disney Hello Kitty Asian/Oriental Plastic beads NO more Paper lists NO Sticky notes. Hope this helps:)

SPECIFIC WISH: I would like your JOKER ONLY PLAYING CARD. Currently have 300 plus.

ATCs: I am downsizing. Let me know if you would like FREE ATCs. DO NOT WANT TO TRADE & would hate to have to trash these beautiful little works of art.

LIST OF THINGS I WOULD LIKE/WISH LIST: Although I love being SURPRISED. Anything Chihuahua or Dachshund, regular cat, , Keys, Earth Day (recycling related), any color material, ribbons, buttons &,Bling) Specialty/Handmade paper & Napkins.

SOMETHING ELSE: I am an avid recycler since the first Earth Day! I believe Reuse, Reduce, Recycle and REGIFT:-) and now Re-purpose.

PET/CHILD INFO: Current Dawgs: Oscar Mayer the Weiner (6+ year). Prince the Pekingese 16. Chihuahua, Kosmo, 13 years old. Update: I have had Kosmo 18 months & he was just diagnosed with enlarged heart. 26 Sept 2022-adopted Daisy/Dixie-12 yr old black/white Female Cat(her owner died).

This Christmas 2023-Gilda, 12 year old Shepherd Mixed joined the family. Sad news, Gilda was only here 2 weeks when she had a Grand Mal Sezuire. I had to have her euthenized. She is with her owner now. RIP.

FAVORITE CHRISTMAS RECIPE: Try it once and let me know what you think!

EVER-SO-EASY FRUITCAKE 2-1/2 Cups Un-sifted Flour 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 2 Eggs, slightly beaten 1 (28-oz) jar NonSuch Ready-to-Use Mincemeat 1 (14-oz) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk) 2 Cups (1-lb) Mixed Candied Fruit 1 Cup coarsely chopped Nuts

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Generously grease a 9 inch Tube pan (here is where I coat with Sugar not flour) Sift together flour & Baking Soda; set aside. In large bowl, combine remaining ingredients & blend in dry ingredients. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 1 hour-15 minutes. Cool 15 minutes. Turn out pan. Garnish as desired-I sprinkle with Powdered Sugar. TIP: When cooled thoroughly; wrapped in aluminum foil; refrigerate or freeze. *I have a 6-part individual fluted pan that I use which is great for Gift giving.

RECIPES: Anything with Jell-o gelatin or pudding. Also Love my Crockpot.& MY New Air Fryer

For some reason I feel like this one is appropriate for our times: “And he testified with many other words and exhorted them, saying, "Save yourselves from this crooked generation." Acts 2:40 RSV-CE

Be safe out there! Indira (cherry blossom lady)
