New52–Change is good

Peppermint Granberg (One Little Bird) and Christine Newman (List Girl) have inspire me to join their New52 Challenge, to help keep feeling young and vibrant. I hope to document them here on my blog. I’m more out to look for new things as they appear in my daily life than to tick off my Bucket List or whatever.

This week I tried some new food. OK not all new to me as I have had nougat before, and not all that healthy, but it was from Iraq. The nougat was choc full of macadamias and a lot less sugary than others I’ve tried. I was a fun morning tea with some tea. Thanks Phill!
Other new to me experiences this week:
  • Monopoly with Shanhun family rules. Who knew that when you only have the normal amount of houses, you have to wait for others to upgrade to hotels before you can put houses on your property. We Okelys inherited I pile of houses from old Monopoly sets over the years, so we always had plenty. Also, another ‘normal’ rule I didn’t know was going the whole way around the board before buying.
  • Making my own iced tea.
  • Playing Rat-a-tat-cat, a card game. As it turns out it’s basically like a game called Kings that my Grandma taught us.
Have you tried anything new so far this year? I’d love to hear about it.

Haha, I love that you had revised Monopoly rules. It seems like everyone plays differently. I remember when I first found out that some people don't buy until they've gone one time around the board - I thought they were messing with me.

That's an impressive list of New for one week! Go you!

That looks like a month of new things! Isn't is annoying when we discover that there's a rule we didn't know that disadvantages us!

My motto for 2011 is "it is ok to be uncomfortable" and it inspiring me to dress in new ways, exercise harder & in different types of weather, to have difficult conversations and to try new things. And it is turning me into more of an optimist! Yay! We will have to try something new together when I am in Perth!
