Hi Secret Santa!

I am super excited to participate in Secret Santa this year! Big thanks to @DawnCloud for putting it all together 😊❀️

    I am not sure how to make a list for Secret Santa.
    I will just make a list of things I like. I will be happy with anything. 😊😊

    It doesn't take much to make me happy.
    I spend my days at home with Elvis and Willie Nelson, my dogs. On my good days, I paint or I write. On my not so good days, I watch a lot of TV and crochet or read. I still manage to cook almost everyday. Cooking is my therapy. My life is really simple and I like it that way.

    I love music.
    I love all music, not just one genre. I love experiencing new music. I listen to everything from punk to rap, country to metal, blues to indy...anything music related is the way to my heart. Go old school and make me mixtape of your favorite songs...I would love that!

    I love to read.
    Some people read books...I consume them. I will be reading two or three books at a time, sometimes more. I love used books. There is something about knowing other people have read the story and passed it along. I also have this funny quirk that once I start a book, I have to finish. I feel I owe it to the author.

    I love word puzzles.
    You know the variety word puzzle books that have all the aggravating logic problems, diagramless crosswords and such in it? Yeah, I'm the nerd who has to start on the first page and work from front to back. It's a way to challenge myself. It makes the book last longer😊

    I love coffee.
    I drink more coffee than I should. Most days, I don't leave my house due to health issues. I spend a lot of time snuggled up with my two dogs and a cup of joe. Yummm

    I love to learn about different places.
    I used to move travel quite a bit, but I haven't in the last few years. I grew up in Louisiana and now live in Northwest Indiana, near Chicago. I love how each place has foods and such that are unique to that area. I mean, I can't find Zapp's Crawtaters potato chips here, anymore than I could find Bobaks polish in Louisiana. I would love to learn what is unique about where you live. It doesn't have to be food! It can be a post card or anything.

    I'm probably not giving you a lot to work with!
    I'm trying really hard, but I'm not in the habit of saying things that I want or would like to have. It's just not in my nature. I appreciative of everything I get. I love the little things. I love the thought that goes into something.

    I promise, whatever you send, will be the best gift ever!

    So, just send whatever you want! You're Santa!

    PS
    I don't eat a lot of sweets, but I love dark chocolate. I also have a thing for candles. That is about as specific as I can get. 😊
