HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS!!! You absolutely can teach an old dog new tricks!
I can argue the point whether or not I’m old and we might even argue the point whether I am a dog. My husband believes I am not a dog although I don’t know whether to believe him.
The winter months in Georgia lead to many activities you wouldn’t even think about when the cooler air turns HOT. Summer comes early and leaves late so that the dog days of summer can be so tiring that a lot of activity stops altogether. Which leads me to my point.
New tricks. I have this to report! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE chalk painting. I have been chalk painting a lot lately. In fact, I have chalk painted my coffee table, dining room table, couch table and about to begin an old desk in the bedroom. I may not stop there. Anywhere there is a flat surface I’m on it.
I have to give credit to my daughter. She started me on this journey. She loves it too. In fact she is pregnant and to say she is nesting is an understatement. She is chalk painting up a storm getting ready for the baby!
Easy is another understatement. If you haven’t tried it I say do it! Just for fun even! You may not like the look but I can guarantee you that it will grow on you. I was not thrilled with the look when I began my first project. When it was finished I wasn’t sure if I liked it then either. It got to me. I am a happy camper. My little to none artistic talent has been frustrated over the years. No more! (I fear this sounds like a commercial. Forgive me!)
There are a lot of other new tricks I want to explore. The list is getting longer and longer. My bucket list of tricks as it were. I’m not getting any younger (I’m reminded of that fact quite a bit lately)
I would love to hear what is on your bucket list of tricks! I vote NO to getting into ruts just because we are getting on in years. What say you? Excuse me … I’ve get to get back to that desk.
