Happy Easter

Sometimes I see past past pieces of pottery and am amazed how long ago it was. This plate is from nine years ago. We've been planting a few bulbs and cold hardy vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, and romaine lettuce. After tonight we hope the hard frosts will be an afterthought.

Our twelve year old laptop screen went out and we had a terrible time finding a solution. We realized without smart phone we couldn't even look up local businesses to help us. Phone books it seems are passé. Finally we bit the bullet and purchased a new laptop. Boy is it a lot faster. We had no idea. Now to find out how to get the files on our old computer transferred to our new computer. Hopefully we are able to retrieve them. Back up your old files and store them on a zip drive, you never know.

We noticed a local organization via fb was selling smoked Boston butt for a reasonable price so we ordered one.  It was really quite delicious and we'll have eight meals from the roast. I made a BBQ sauce from scratch which enhanced the smoked meat. By the way a butt is the upper part of the shoulder. Happy Easter to you all.

Be Safe, Be Well


  1. It is amazing how far (and how fast) technology moves isn't it? I couldn't believe how much faster our new PC is - and no doubt there are now even faster ones about.

  2. Happy Easter, Linda. I also have a new laptop and an old computer, need to retrieve some family photos, and research that are on the hard drive. Our local computer guru suggeested a thumb drive she sells. Most everything goes to a cloud these days.

  3. The plate is beautiful.

    I've got a couple of external hard drives that I often back-up on....just in case....I'm a "just-in-case" person....just in case! :)

    Take good care. I hope you're having a nice Easter, Linda. :)

  4. Oh wow, it is a gorgeous plate, such a pretty pattern! I enjoy when I hear about your planting. I think I live vicariously through your garden :) Congratulations on your new laptop. I find that between the times we get anything new, it is like graduating from a propeller to a jet airplane. And they always take a while to get used to. I hope you will be able to retrieve your old files and back them up. Yum, I’m hungry and this talk about your Boston Butt has me hankering for barbecue sandwiches. I hope you had a great Easter. Ours was unusually quiet this year but still very nice and relaxed. We had a ham with a green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, with leftovers which I always love. I am looking forward to making some Navy Bean Soup. Enjoy the rest of your week Linda :)
