Inspired by Emily P. Freeman’s, “Let’s Share What We Learned This Summer” I present my simple list.
What did you learn this summer?
Consider joining in by going to her link.
What I learned
- How to watercolor and use a palate by watching a demonstration at Arch Supplies in San Francisco. It was free and so helpful!
- How to apply snaps to clothing (and I figured out how to use them prevent a wide neck collar from falling off my shoulder).
- I do not like sewing clothing: tedious business, good for people who want to be detail oriented.
- Machines exist that can bypass the system that puts oxygen in blood.
- A DIC response might just be part of my son’s condition, but like most things, he never looks as bad as the numbers indicate. We walk in mystery.
- 70% of time spent writing a project is editing.
- Why Mormons believe a righteous person might theoretically rule a planet one day (clue: they don’t phrase it like that). It is so great to talk with people of other religions (or who have been other religions) to get a sense of what it is like in the other person’s shoes. We may wildly disagree on some points, but it is so worth it to ask.
- Windows look amazing when they’re clean.
- If I write long enough, I max out and feel satisfied the rest of the day.
- Having community is the key to everything, the founders of the Four Friends Market met at their church.
