Of course, his idea that I should make hand-crafted paper went way beyond my desirability zone, but thinking about paper led me to origami. So, there you have it, my first and only origami heart.
Yes, it was easy. No, I didn't enjoy making it. BUT now that it's made, I do have some sense of satisfaction in having tried something new. There's something to be said for that, don'chaknow!
Haven't been home much lately, so there are some fairly wussy choices in my "do something new" daily challenge:
- On Sunday, we chose to eat at a locally owned joint we'd never before tried
- Out with "the girls" last night, I drank a Greek beer for the first time
- Today ate dark chocolate that contained cocoa nibs, something I'd never tried (well, YUM!)
Time to power down...I'll let these photos bring 'er home. Let me know if you can thing of something I might've never tried before that would be fun & worth trying. ????
|Hey, I'm learning to knit! Hopefully this dishcloth will not be an embarrassment in the end!|
|These are some of the groceries bought in Columbus, Ohio. Can't wait to try my hand at working with spring roll wrappers, a product that can't be found around here. Bought the cans of Eden Organic Beans on closeout for $1.29 per can.|
|Picked up this Jeni's Salty Caramel Ice Cream in Columbus, Ohio, to eat on our way home, but the grocery had only one plastic spoon. I can't be expected to take turns at the spoon when ice cream is melting! At a rest area picnic table about an hour later, eating slightly thawed ice cream with a fork was not as much fun, but the ice cream was still swallow-your-tongue GOOD!|
|Oh, yeah, I finally remembered to put some flatware in the car. No more plastic when we stop for quick lunches on the road!|
