Let Them Eat…Pineapple



Spent some time this weekend helping with a Bridal Shower for my soon-to-be  daughter-in-law. It turned out wonderful! Her mother and sister did such a great job putting things together and making it beautiful (just like her!) but more on that  later!

My job was to take care of some chicken salad croissants and fruit tray. I cut up oodles of fruit on Saturday so I would be ahead of the game for the Sunday shower. You know, the usual, strawberries, watermelon, apples, cantaloupe, grapes…well I didn’t cut the grapes…just washed and plucked them off the vines! And last but not least. A pineapple! Hubby loves pineapple! He didn’t get any. He’ll live….it was for a good cause! Anyway…for a while he has been wanting to try to take the top of a pineapple and see if we can get it to grow! So I said “Sure..we can try it. I just have to Google/Youtube it because I have no idea how.” And because I Google/Youtube EVERYTHING!!! I seriously do not know what I did before Google. Well, actually, I could ASK Jeeves. (Anybody remember ASK Jeeves?) But, Jeeves, was never near as good as Google! Anyway, I found this awesome video here and away we went! Below is the picture of what it looked like after I had pulled it away from the top of the pineapple and pulled some leaves off to expose the roots. Got it planted and we shall wait and see how it goes!


Hubby says he loves the way the plant looks, but I know that he is secretly trying to get this to work so that we can grow his very own pineapples to eat!!! I will keep you posted on the progress!



A New Beginning

Well, as hard as I tried I wasn’t able to preserve my previous posts from my blog. So I will just move forward from here. Hopefully I will be able to somehow maintain my domain name so that I won’t lose that too. I will say  that I have spent three days going around in circles on Google trying to figure out how to set up auto payments in order to keep my domain name. I have never been so frustrated in MY LIFE!!!! Google had apparently changed from Google Apps to G Suite within the last year and it seems that unless you are willing to pay for a subscription you can’t access your admin console. Which is very frustrating because then you can’t do anything about transferring your domain name. I know all of the technical stuff is really boring to most of you but sometimes it just helps to be able to vent! I said all of that to say this…..if I can’t get this figured out I might end up having to start all. over. again. But I will prevail!!! I may just have to let it expire and then sign up again with the same name at a different registrar. In the meantime I have a couple of weeks to figure all of this out and maybe bring a better blog experience! In the meantime..how about a picture of a cute puppy dog!!!


The Long Way Home

This has been a long road for me. I started a blog many years ago and just didn’t put in the effort needed to get it off the ground. I finally decided that I was going to put more effort into it and get it going. Then I started having issues with the server I was using so now I am in the midst of transferring from one server to another. It is definitely a learning process! Right now I am just trying to get a few pages published so I can learn to use the new format and figure out what I am doing. My fear though is that I could possibly lose all of my posts that were on the other site. Luckily, there weren’t many of them but they were posts that were important to me, so I will work diligently to see if I can figure out how to get this transfer to work out. I really feel that the change was needed  and that it will be much better after I get the kinks worked out. Please check back often and leave comments! I am looking forward to hearing your input. I would love any suggestions that you have such as a recipe you would like to see me post about. Maybe questions about cooking or crafting. I will also appreciate any constructive criticism that you care to share. Thanks in advance….I hope you enjoy my blog!
