March 12 & 13: Half a dozen ways of thinking through a problem

I'm not a good muller-over. I can't sit down with a cup of tea and think a problem through from start to finish. Whether it's a crossword puzzle clue or a personal conundrum, I do my best thinking with the back of my brain, when it looks like I'm not really thinking at all.

In an effort to solve all the problems of the world this weekend...

....I made a pie. (Pro tip: when you discover that the cherry pie filling doesn't come close to filling your 10-inch deep dish pie plate, stir in a generous cup of finely chopped apple.)


....I made four quilt blocks:





...I kept knitting (and knitting and knitting):


...I went for a walk downtown:


...and to the waterfront:


...and took a minute to look out to sea.



Not a bad way to spend a weekend, I suppose.

  1. I love that description of using the back of your brain. Sometimes the best way to look at a problem is with the side of your eye and not directly.
