I am still evolving. I love good conversation, and am comfortable with silence.
I'm not average, I definitely do things my way, and I'm comfortable with that. If you prefer "normal", it's not quite here.
I am an introvert but I need connections with people.
I love to travel and visit new places and I love my home. I have lived all over the US and overseas, moved 23 times. However, I don't intend to ever move from Omaha. As long as the grandchildren are nearby, I'm here.
My kids are self supporting adults that live nearby, there are 2 grandchildren so far, 5 grandcats and a granddog. Grandchildren are pretty amazing.
I live with cats. The cats are people. Small, loving, fur covered people who endlessly amuse me. (see pictures)
I am a crafter and creative person. I knit, crochet, sew, quilt, make lip balms and soaps, and more.
I like estate sales, I enjoy finding things that can be re-purposed and possibly sold elsewhere.
I love to read, I usually have at least one book on my nightstand, and usually one or two overdue at the library.
I have a garden, tomatoes fresh off the vine taste like sunshine. If you have never tasted that, you've been deprived.
I try to eat less meat and sugars, and more veggies. The garden helps. However, I did grow up in Nebraska and live here again and sometimes.... sometimes it has to be steak.
I carry a pocket knife most of the time. It is small and pink. It saves wear and tear on my nails - see creativity and gardening.
I also have fake nails, they make me happy.
If you've read my postings you may have figured out I'm pretty liberal.
I am an encourager, a advocate for other women, for children, for the oppressed and the struggling, and for everyone in my life.
I am very self sufficient, however something just can't be done alone.
I have a drill and I know how to use it. In fact I have two drills.
I don't smoke cigarettes, and don't like to be around them.
I don't care for sports, professional or college. GBR is not often heard in my house, if you don't know what that is that is a good thing. NASCAR is not considered at all, ever.
I turned the cable off in 2015. I stream if/when I watch TV.
I'm plump, my curves have curves. I've had more and I've had fewer.
I drive a Toyota Rav4 that is 11 years old. It has a sun roof and it is paid for. I plan to drive it til my kids take the keys away from my cold dead hands.
I'd like to find a partner for the rest of the journey. Life can be a cold, journey, sharing makes the load lighter and warmer.

Hi @Akfishlady, I've been L7 for a while but didn't join before, likely because I've been having so much fun at the open forum. I hope it's ok. If there are any protocol rules I should be aware of, please let me know.

I like that. People who use marijuana could be your next door neighbor, your boss, or your doctor. End the stigma!
Pretty much.

The brain needs to be bigger, but other than that, very good!

Cheeto the builder
HippieChick58 comments:
Like he would ever get his hands dirty, and he's too fat to squat down like that. Hell, my knees hurt just looking at it.
Children are bargaining chips
HippieChick58 comments:
This hurts my heart so bad. It is so wrong to wage war on children.
How conscious are you of your carbon foot print? What do you do to minimize it? For example i compost all that i can.
HippieChick58 comments:
about 12 years ago I made canvas shopping bags. I use them most shopping trips. 8 years ago I made personal wipes. I quit using toilet paper. I rarely use paper towels, napkins, or plastic bags I use glass for food storage. I make my own soap, toothpaste, deodorant, lip balm. I garden. I use Hydroflasks and almost never use plastic water bottles. I use metal straws. I make and take my own lunch, carry and reuse my own silverware, and usually cook from scratch and mostly vegetarian. I recycle paper and plastic at home, and take glass recycling to Target. I donate my unused stuff to a variety of resale or reuse places. I compost, and I have a worm box in my pantry. I make my own extracts and cleaning solvents. There are lemon peels soaking in vinegar in my pantry now. I'm not sure how long they've been there. And I'm gradually replacing all the light bulbs with LEDs.
Needs a caption!

We know who is pulling the strings.
This feels true to me.
HippieChick58 comments:
YUCK!! I see my ex often enough that I get frequent reminders of why I pulled that plug.
Leonbergers! I survived the visit but barely remained upright as they were both jumpers. Gorgeous dogs. Both walked beautifully on leash. Phew!
HippieChick58 comments:
Glad you made it through upright. They look like amazing dogs!
How do I fix a broken cat?
HippieChick58 comments:
S/he's not broken, s/he's comfy!
This is something every cat lover should have. LOL
HippieChick58 comments:
I could make these! I'm not going to, but I could. Seriously, I have so many other projects I can't get to these until 19 years 4 months 3 days after I retire.
What are you obsessed with?
HippieChick58 comments:
Justice, Agnostic.com, fabric stores, yarn, kitties, grandbabies, surviving, my sleep or lack thereof.
I don't know where to put this or if it's even relevant. It sure hit me the wrong way though. What an approach.
HippieChick58 comments:
Wow, seems to me like two stray cats encountering each other. Psssst, fur flying. Seems like offence was taken pretty quickly.
My Rainey - utterly relaxed today
HippieChick58 comments:
That looks like utter contentment. S/he is totally trusting, quite a compliment to you.
I've noticed through conversations that some people develope shallow reasons, based on past relationship failures, to not date others. Does your past negative experiences cause you to immediately dismiss someone due to their name, profession, ethnicity, hobbies, music choices ect?
HippieChick58 comments:
Hobbies and music choices maybe. Names not so much. I grew up a Smith, I love unusual names. Profession, maybe. I probably wouldn't have much in common with someone who works for ICE right now. Ethnicity is not an issue. Race is a human construct and we all bleed red blood.
Oh yes, The Monkees. You are singing that song right now. lol

Now I'm a believer!
Good morning! After a wonderful weekend, it'll be even harder to go to work today ... where's my coffee infusion?
HippieChick58 comments:
Sometimes it is a relief to go to work, knowing I can sit for several hours. I hit record high numbers of stairs and steps this weekend, and its no wonder I ache this morning.
My oldest daughter cooked dinner for #FathersDay⁠ ⁠and my son did the dishes... the 3rd kid gets away with allot:) and that’s a #vegan cake, amazing, from #wholefoods

Looks yummy, and yes, the baby gets to skate.
In the "Have you experienced this?" category. I am getting a little tired of having to explain to guys I'm chatting with that it isn't a matter of them accepting my atheism, and that a christian dating a muslim isn't the same as an atheist dating religious person. I state it prominently in my main profile for a reason. I don't date people of faith for the same reason I don't date anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers and Trump supporters.
HippieChick58 comments:
I had a date with a gent, and I explained I did not believe in God nor go to church. And he kept calling me a good Christian woman. I asked what part of not believing was he ignoring. That was a short relationship for that and a few other reasons. Then recently I got off all dating sites, just kept encountering the same scammers or just meeting the same guys. Not worth the hassle.
The far side!
HippieChick58 comments:
LOL!!
HippieChick58 comments:
I check out my notifications first, and post stuff I've found on other sites. Then I look at new member activity. And IF it isn't time to go to work or bed and I have nothing more pressing to do, then I will look at older posts. Yeah, I need to get a life.
What would you do if...
HippieChick58 comments:
I'd give up FB, I have much more fun here. However, my kids are on FB, and some good friends and my sister. So I would do so only with great reluctance.
It's hot here (okay not by some standards ). Share your forecast to make me feel better 😰 I think it is a great week to go camping.
HippieChick58 comments:
It was forecast to get up to 98° today, I don't know how hot it got, we had an afternoon thundershower. Tomorrow 94° with a possibility of thundershowers Monday and Tuesday.
Boy this is really an old one, as a kid I loved playing it.
HippieChick58 comments:
Yes, I loved clue. One of the kids still has the game. or had.
