Old Dogs ~ New Tricks

You know the old saying, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”?  🐶 Well, that saying is absolutely the stupidest thing that I have ever heard!!  👂

Some of the most interesting people that I have ever met, are the ones that find something new to learn everyday! It might be just a new fact, or a whole new skill...but, the important thing is, they are always learning. 📖📖📖

A past coworker of mine has been an inspiration to me over the years, even though I haven’t worked with her for several years now.  My first week on that job, and I was assigned to help her with a project.  To begin with, I couldn’t even keep up with her!

I loved working with her over the years, and becoming good friends. She loved learning new things!  If you learned something new, she always wanted to hear about it....and if you could teach her, all the better!  

When I grow up, I wanna be like her!!    

I hope that I am on the right path. I try to learn something new everyday!  I know that this past year has been quite educational!!

So far, in the year 2017, I have been learning how to:

  • start a Facebook group

  • keep 2 blogs going with no internet connection
    • write the posts in Google Docoments
    • copy/paste when have Wifi
    • add pictures, etc.

  • help with electrical wiring

  • build a shed

  • put up walls in a house

And, in the last month, I have started looking up even more. ☝

No, I am not referring to being more positive!  Although, I am trying to do that, too! ~ Lol

I have actually turned my eyes to the night sky, and started to learn about the constellations. 🌠🌃🌠🌟🌠🌛

More about that in another post.

Tell me what you are learning ~ I want to hear all about your fledgling endeavors!!  🐥🐤🐥

Big projects, baby steps, or just new facts ~ tell me, show me, teach me! 


  1. I had a lawyer tell me once upon a time that if you keep learning, your mind stays sharp! I have worked ever since to do just that. Right now, I am concentrating on learning to cook gluten free vegetarian foods that taste good and last for a couple of days. I am both frustrated and encouraged to be doing this.

  2. I know that you're having to learn that out of necessity,but you will be better for it. For our own health, I should probably be learning some of those, too!
