I won’t pick the chicken out of the chicken noodle soup

This post is about compromise. In most aspects of my life, I’m a great compromiser. While I figure out plans for art and craft projects, I’m quite flexible on how they are actually implemented. I’m the same on cleaning, driving routes, and a wide variety of other things in my life – especially with my […]

How to Not Be Endearing; How to Choose a Mate

I’ve recently been judging a novel writing contest (which I cannot give out any details about, but, of course, it’s a great contest). I’m finding the judging to be loads of fun. I’m reading books that I normally would not read and that is always of great interest to me. I’ve found new favorite writers […]

How can I persuade you?

I keep meeting people that smile politely at my ideas and feign interest, yet when push comes to shove they do nothing to change their ways to be more similar to mine. Nor do they do anything to help me and my causes. Makes me wonder about the art of persuasion. Just how does a […]

10 Ways to Be a Better Spouse TODAY

This list is similar to my “10 Ways to Be a Better Parent TODAY“. Truth be told, you should treat all of your immediate family members better than you treat anyone else in the entire world. Most people do the opposite. They have special meals, special dishes, special clothing, special manners, etc. for guests and […]

Science Fiction, String Theory, Star Trek and God

Science Fiction, String Theory, and Star Trek What do these have in common? God. Yes, God, with a capital G. I’ve heard the comments directed at Trekkies: “Oh, what geeks,” and “They just dress up and live in a little pretend world, how adolescent.” How banal that Trekkies are mistreated and misunderstood so! [How sad […]

What is YOUR Goal for Your Kids?

Whenever I start a new project, I usually start with an end goal in mind. When I get out yarn, I don’t usually start knitting without knowing what I am making. I start with the idea of a scarf, or a purse, or a pillow, or a sweater. Then, I choose the yarn, the pattern, […]
