When is the last time you tried something new?

I tried Thai food....really too spicy for me, but happy, I gave something new a try.

I've been learning to speak Spanish.

Before that, it was probably two years ago when I learned to crochet.

In what way? A new food? A new soap? A new sewing technique? 

I am in the process of making a new table runner using a quilting technique where you quilt as you assemble it. I love the pattern - a chevron , but not too crazy about how the underside looks. Fine for a tablerunner where it won't be seen but I wouldn't use it for an actual quilt.

Gee ... that's a wide open question!  In what category?

 

Depending on category ... I would say just about every day.

 

Yesterday - I tried a NEW tuna salad recipe.  BTW - it was delicious.  I substituted mild chopped chili peppers in place of peas and chopped the cabbage and celery smaller than usual.

 

Today ... I'm using a NEW crochet stitch and NEW pattern and NEW yarn for my NEW shrug.

 

Tomorrow - I'm planning on using  NEW sausage and kraut recipe.

Re: When is the last time you tried something new?

As of late, I'm considering maybe getting involved in our Senior Center.  I'm seeking ways to increase my being more sociable, getting more involved with others.  I'm missing that being retired.  I always had a lot of people contact in the jobs I've had.

I came across this list of 365 questions on Pinterest.  That's where I've gotten the questions that I've been posting the last three or four days.

I like that they're open ended. It will be interesting to see how differently we each interpret them.

I bought a Cricut machine and have been taking online classes to learn how to use it!  Really excited about what can be done using this cutting device.

 

love the questions!

I usually ignore cranky people but my NEW approach is to treat them extra kindly.This is really difficult sometimes for me and for them.

Re: When is the last time you tried something new?

I try for every day, but at least every week we try a new food, spice, place to eat, read something new, get a new book or magazine.   I have always been about not getting in a rut.  Learning, trying or seeing something new every day is what it's all about for me.
