This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how nice it was to finally get together with some friends for lunch. Most of us hadn’t seen each other for over a year. We are all at the age where a year is important. Of course, we can’t change what is over. So, I reminded myself of my favorite saying, “There’s good in everything”.  I’m amazed at how much ‘good’ I was able to reclaim from the ‘stay-at-home time. Finding things to be thankful for was a good place to start.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN…
you have more hair on your face instead on the top of your head.
you admire people who can sit cross-legged on the floor.
you choose clothes and shoes for comfort rather than style.

COOKING HINTS
(Taken from Easy Does It)
SWEET CORN: Add a bit of milk or a pinch of sugar to boiling water, but don’t add salt, the calcium in the salt will make the corn tough.
CAULIFLOWER: Add lemon juice to the water when cooking Cauliflower. It will stay white instead of turning brown.
SPINACH: Wash spinach in salt water and say goodbye to grit.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Connie and Sara were having lunch when Sara spotted two elderly women across the room. “That’ll be us in ten years,” Sara noted.
“That’s a mirror.” Connie answered.

WORDS OF WISDOM
Remember that your character is your destiny.
Be a good loser. Be a good winner.

 PUNCH LINES
A dollar won’t do as much for us, and we won’t do as much for a dollar.
If you lose your glasses, you can’t see how to find them until you do.

Deem reliable at your own risk.
