One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.
I've been spending the past week putting up strawberry jam preserves and strawberry toppings for ice-cream, cakes etc. The sweet taste of the strawberries will please anyone's palate. There is something with seeing the end result that satisfies even the sense of sight let alone the taste. I have one more day of canning these strawberries, then it's off to some other task. Lucky me, I get to taste as I go along.:)
