Hi friends! Something I’m celebrating this week is that I managed to cook acorn squash. Nicole and I had tried years ago and it was so incredibly difficult to cut that we gave up and yelled, “Never again!” Well, flash-forward six years and here I am, trying again. I looked up some how-to videos and it seems as though the tricks are to go slowly, use a sawing motion, and be patient. Aside from, of course, using a long-bladed and very sharp knife. I was shocked at how well it went when I wasn’t trying to rush it. It got me asking myself about what else I may have given up on years ago that I may want to try again. Knitting and crochet come to mind. We’ll see! Anyway, this week I’m actually going to talk about something else.
One of my favorite things to do is to take a thing (a tool, a framework, a kitchen utensil, etc.) that is meant for a particular use and figure out other uses for it and use it in a different way. I did this the other day when I was talking to my therapist and I did exactly this and I want to share it with you in case you find it helpful.
