“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”—Anatole France
“He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.”—Douglas Adams
Transportation. Doodling any form of transportation—such as cars, planes, boats or even horses— indicates that the person wishes to escape wherever they are.
Stick figures. If they lack hands or feet, stick figures could be a sign that the doodler feels aimless.
Flowers. Perky petals indicate a gentle, sociable nature. Droopy blossoms may signal worry.
Word search. The first English version of the puzzle where you find and circle words was published in 1968. Norman E. Gibat designed it for a want-ad digest in Norman, Okla. He arranged the names of 34 Oklahoma cities horizontally, vertically and diagonally in a grid. Area teachers started using the puzzles in their classrooms, and soon they were being syndicated nationally.
Sudoku. The puzzle’s name is Japanese, but its origins are European and American. In the 1700s, Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler created a grid game called Latin Squares, where numbers appeared only once in each row and column. Fast-forward to the 1970s, when Dell Magazines published Howard Garns’ Number Place game, which was inspired by Euler’s puzzle. In the 1980s, the puzzles took Japan by storm, and sudoku fever gradually worked its way back to the U.S. By 2005, most U.S. daily newspapers were offering a sudoku.

Be flexible. Resolutions such as “I will go to the gym every day” present you with a near-impossible task. The goal is to work out most days, so start off by planning to go to the gym four times a week. This allows for any unforeseen circumstances without wrecking your resolution.
Countless candy canes? Heat up some cocoa and use a candy cane as a stirring stick. It mixes the chocolate with the milk while adding a refreshing minty flavor. Or, crush up the candy and mix it into vanilla frosting for cupcakes.
Overflowing oatmeal cookies? Melt some chocolate chips, spread on one cookie, add sprinkles, and top with another cookie to make a sweet sandwich snack. This tip works for any kind of cookie, including gingerbread men.
Extra eggnog? Use eggnog instead of creamer in your coffee for a rich, spicy flavor. Not a coffee drinker? Eggnog makes excellent French toast. Soak bread slices in eggnog before frying them to golden-brown perfection.
Abundance of fruitcake? Reinvent a fruitcake by chopping it up in a food processor and rolling into balls. Melt chocolate and dip the fruitcake balls to create a new twist on an old favorite.
With a little planning and creativity, you can turn leftover holiday goodies into tasty treats that are sure to hit the spot even the second time around.
