Happy printing…and other stuff

Ta da!  The new printer is installed, and working on printerall three computers.  There is still a lot for me to learn about it, of course, but at least it is operational.
Now I can print from anywhere in the house.  Unattached!  Sw-eet.  Wires are so messy.
Sorry to frighten y’all about saying Blogger eat my blog yesterday…I should have said “post.”  I used my phone to post a photo and short blog post yesterday morning, and it never showed up anywhere…in my trash or spam folders, nor on the blog.  Oh well…it was no big deal.  Just annoying.
So I just finished reading The Help and loved it.  Not that I could relate to those having help, way back then.  Mother would get someone to come in and iron occasionally, but that was it.  Haley and I plan to see the movie real soon, which is getting rave reviews already.   Has anyone else seen it?  Or plans to see it?
Amy brought over two chickens to smoke (in the smoker on our deck) while I kept the wee boys Monday.  Dinner AND boys…that’s a good deal any day of the week and twice on Sunday.  She did a “rub” on the birds, and we let them smoke for about 4 hours.  They were good, but not quite as moist as what we had Sunday.  We’ll have to try it again and play with the time and temps.
I made a pasta salad that was yummy, and posted the recipe on www.dyerdining.blogspot.com .   MM and I had it at Disney and loved it.  Let me know if you try it.
That’s it from paradise, y’all!

ooooh!! That looks like a peach. ANd nice and close to Missy's bed, too. Convenient!

Let me know how you like it. I hate wires. I've been wrangling them many times over the weekend whilst moving my office around to paint. More to come, too. Yeesh.

Big hugs xoxo

Glad to hear that you liked the book! I'm looking forward to the movie too. We all LOVE our wireless printer! Dinner sounds delish- can't wait to try that pasta salad.

I highly identified with Mae Mobley, the baby girl in the book. While my mom wasn't cruel like those women, we did have help in the house, at my grandparent's place, and other family members' home. Violet, Angie, and Mary.

That was part of growing up ion the South during the 1960s.

Strolling over to check out the pasta salad. I love pasta salad.

Congratulations on getting your printer up and running!

I've had blog posts disappear into the atmosphere when posting from my phone from time to time. I have no idea where they go - they just go - poof!

I haven't read The Help but I am trying to get through a different book right now which I am halfway through and STILL not sure if I like! Good thing I'm stubborn or it might never get finished!

We need to get a wireless printer. We will when this one poops out. Oh wait, we have two printers. Imagine that.

I'm hungry for pasta salad now. I love anything pasta.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from sunny California. :)

Printing for your business i.e. sticker and folder printing gives you the opportunity to get better on the deployment of your advertising message. Within these tags, you can in your marketing slogan or philosophy. You can watch your products effectively, the right people to say something special and important they are.
