A long time ago I told myself that I wanted to be constantly learning as an adult. I've always admired people who learn to paint or go to university again at the age of 50 (or whatever I considered a "great old age" while I was 20). People who are never afraid to try their hand or mind at something new.
I was going to take a university or college course every year. Not necessarily towards any goal, but just to keep learning.
That never happened. I've taken the odd Excel course or "How to Write a Mission Statement" and some adult Sunday School classes. But that's it.
It doesn't mean I never learn anything new though. I went to Calgary a few weeks ago and stayed in a house that always smells of good food (you know who you are!). And I learned one simple thing that I should have known long ago.
"Don't mix the biscuit dough too much or it'll get tough". Why didn't I know that? I know that about muffins.
This is what I know how to make now.
Fluffy, almost puff-pastry biscuits. And it's easier than making the tough biscuits I used to make.
Now you may have learned something new in your adult life too. Unless you are my Calgary friend with the lovely smelling house. She already knew this.
