It's been a long time since we wrote a little bit about who we are but thought it might be nice to do it again since we have lots of new members.
I'll start. I'm retired and moved to a small city in the Okanagan Valley. We built a small empty nesters' style home and slowly it's coming together with the help of the forum. At this time last year I could barely make a decision on what colour to paint my front. Most people picked red and it's still red and I still like it. I worked in a technical field and spent years throwing mud as a potter. My other obsession is buying original art in small town galleries before the artists become popular and/or expensive. That's why all my walls are white. I'm trying to stop impulse purchases but every now and then I pick up something new. I've learned downsizing means just that so I've had to back off on the garage sales too. We love to travel and are just waiting for better weather so we can go camping for a few days. Oh, I can't stop buying shoes but I have very tiny feet so the downsizing hasn't cramped my style in that department.
And for those that haven't heard, the "van" is a vehicle, not a city. :laugh: That's what happens when you pick a nick name in the spur of the moment.
So that's who I am. Anyone else now?
