Lessons I’m Still Trying to Learn


They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  I hope this old mama can at least remember a few lessons to help her hang on to the tiny bit of sanity she has left!

Lesson #1:  Cutting vegetables for pot pie is a good thing.  Leaving them unattended is not a good thing.



Anything left on the kitchen counter MUST be pushed at least 10 inches away from the edge.  Otherwise Mom gets a little cranky.  But the magic of this little mug sort of makes me forget that lesson.



Lesson #2: Rolled paper roses seem harmless enough…



…until you multiply them by around 200.



Then they turn into hours and hours (and hours and hours) of work and terribly sore fingertips.

Projects that involve more than 10 rolled paper roses should be avoided.  But having this to show for it kind of makes me forget about those hours and sore fingers.



This concludes today’s lesson.  I hope you have found our material to be beneficial.
