New to Me

I don’t know about you, but I still get excited when I learn something new. I mean, I am sooo old, what haven’t I experienced? Just kidding. I expect to get much older and continue learning. Here are a few things I discovered recently:

You can buy ground bratwurst! I was making a beer-cheese soup and wanted to put brats in it. I assumed I’d have to cook the sausage link then dice it up, but on a whim, I asked our local meat market if they sold the inside meat, no casing. And they do!

The soup was excellent.

Some school districts offer streaming of their events! This may not be new to school-age parents now, but it was new to me. When we were out over the weekend, some younger friends were discussing their plans for the upcoming week which included multiple school events. With Spartan TV (specifically), they are able to have one parent attend in person while the other stays home with younger siblings and watches online. The parents alternate who goes and who stays and the students get to participate without the littles missing bedtime.

I think this is brilliant.

Puffin chicks are called Pufflings! OMG, how cute is that?

(the name might actually be cuter than the creature, lol)

I’m going to wrap up what’s New to Me with What I Know:

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.

    • Thank you, I know! There is NO reason for the base to be that shape. Not like the plumber doesn’t know how the pipe flows! Not like they can access it from the outside! Smooth, sleek, clean will work just fine.
