Never too old to learn new things!
I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!
~maybe I better explain that, just a little.
I grew up in town, without ever needing to learn certain things. So, there are a few things that I had never learned.
Like starting, and keeping a fire going, with unseasoned firewood...or any firewood, for that matter. There is a trick to it, and I had been taught it recently when learning all about using a woodstove.
But, the hubby had always been nearby.
And, now he is not. So, I needed to get it right, or just be a freaking popsicle for the next few days.
Let's just say that I am feeling warm and toasty tonight ~and will hopefully be till morning!
Also, this absolutely non-mechanical female has mastered unlocking the hubs on the pickup truck and using the 4-wheel drive, when needed.
These may sound like small things...but when you are trying to become more self -sufficient, these types of things are small potatoes!
☆Feeling a little proud of myself tonight!
