Have You Ever Tried. . .

Dragon Fruit?






The outside fruit may call to mind a dragon, but the inside is definitely Dalmation! And it's really yummy.

Or, have you tried Kimbap? A Korean wrap.

l-r Pickled Radish, sliced carrots, beef, for the filling

Two completed rolls all sliced up, with more pickled radish on the side.

The green is wilted spinach, and there's egg too. Delicious for lunch or snacks.

What I Made Last Spring

Our daughter, Noble, asked for help making a book bag, specifically for carrying large hard cover books. She was already carrying a large shoulder bag with computer, etc., to school and wanted a special bag for the book she was reading.

Hence:

Noble chose this fun lime green with elephants cotton duck for the bag.

With a cheerful orange polka dot lining; it's just the right size!

A little bit of decorative stitching!

Noble modeling the bag, and declaring it perfect.

Noble, the college senior, all ready to go to school.
I enjoy creating! What have you made or done recently that's felt creatively joyful?

Look What I Made

Pretty new tote bag

Inside - two pockets and a magnet clasp
I took a class at a local quilt shop and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The rose print and the calico inside are over thirty years old from my stash; the dark green batik was purchased at the shop for the class. We made them in one day 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (actually finished my about 3:15). Lots of fun!!

This has profoundly changed me!



For several years I've been working on overcoming procrastination. I've come a long way and am so much better than I used to be. But this video has produced more change in me than anything else. For too long I couldn't get things done because I was waiting for the right motivation. Or the right circumstances. Or the right mood. How did I get to be 61 years old and not understand the principles taught so succinctly in this video?

Jocko Willink is pretty intense! But he speaks the truth!


I hope this positively impacts your life too. Let me know what you think.
