Old lady life skills

Sewing, crocheting, knitting, genealogy, cuddling up with a good book, interoverting (yes, I just created that word).  Sounds like a great retirement, right?  It also sounds like a list of my hobbies and interests, yet I’m not an old lady nor am I retired.  My husband told me recently that he had a realization which was basically along the lines of, “you know your hobbies are that of the life skills of an old woman.”  Uh, yeah, that’s true, but I didn’t quite realize how to digest it until a couple days later.  I was slightly offended until that realization.  I am an old woman!  

I enjoy peace and quiet, crafts mentioned above, cooking from scratch, and I’m known for baking treats that I don’t even like.  Being a picky eater doesn’t mean I should withhold my abilities to please. 😛

The biggest piece of advice I can pass along to you is the following: If you create a home made crowd pleasing dish from a treasured secret recipe, share it.  Pass on the love.  The only secret recipes I have are the things I make from a package.  Betty Crocker’s sugar cookies are the only secret recipe I have.  It’s so secret that I don’t even know it, and that’s why I can’t share it.  The same thing goes for hobbies and crafts, I enjoy sharing my skills and interests with other people who can cherish items they make so I do share information simply because everybody is a beginner once.  If I was always ignored or pushed aside when I inquired more experienced sewers then I wouldn’t possess the skills I do currently.  Share the love, people.
