10 Things (or Subjects) You Wish You Knew More About
1. Gardening - the flower variety. I love a pretty container of flowers but I feel like I really stink at combining flowers that look good together. My method generally involves this.... "These all require Full Sun? I like these colors together? Is one tall and one short? Done."
2. Gardening - the vegetable variety. I started dabbling a few years ago with a small vegetable garden. We really enjoy the fresh vegetables but I'm not very good at it and don't get the yield that I think I should. I have no clue when to start seeds so I always start with plants from the nursery. I have so much to learn!
3. My Camera. It is a DSLR and is waaaaay too advanced for my ability, but I bought it because I can take a pictures of my kids doing the things they love, and they're actually in the picture! I did not have that same success with my old point and shoot digital camera.
4. Knitting. I'm reasonably skilled and profiecient with my knitting, but there is always more to learn! I love learning more. Some day I'd like to complete the Master Knitter Program. Maybe I should get on that sometime soon.
5. World Religions. There are so many that I'd like to understand better.
6. My Electronics. I know I'm scratching the surface with my electronics. I'm pretty comfortable with them but I'm always stunned what I learn from my kids when they sit beside me while using them.
7. iPhoto. Goes hand in hand with my camera. And my electronics. :-)
8. Clean Eating. Although I've tried to dramatically reduce processed foods in my family's diet over the last couple years, I'd like to learn more about this.
9. Contemporary History. I really feel that most of what I know about WW2 and what followed is lacking. I love reading a good novel historical novel and learning more about the issues, ideals, and conflicts.
10. Cooking. It's something I love to do and I'm pretty good at it, but I'd love to be better at it. Fancier meals more suited to "company" or adult dining as my kids are leaving the nest. Grilling meats that use homemade marinades and salads that use fresh dressings. I guess this really goes well with the idea of Clean Eating too.
These are some of the things I'd like to know about. How about you?
