Week 39 Monday (10/6/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Pineapple Fruit Balls
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

            When I saw the title of this recipe I had a flashback to an old Elvis Presley movie called Blue Hawaii. Elvis came home from the war and his Dad wanted him to work on their pineapple plantation. I think the name of the company was The Great Hawaii Pineapple Company. Why does that stick in my head?  There can’t be much room left in there due to the foolish trivia and memories that fill my head. Oh well, I know that pineapple is one of my worst allergies so this recipe is out (even though it does sound refreshing).

Random Reflections - Bucket List

         One of my favorite things to do in the winter is to create quilt tops. Sewing and knitting are much more fun in the winter than they are in the summer. I seem to nest all of the time once the weather begins to turn. This morning I rearranged my closet and planned what I would wear to school for the next two weeks. Yikes – that’s just nuts. Oh well – the cold is coming and I need to gear up to begin sewing.

Wants and Wishes

         I want to learn how much my surgery is going to cost next year and hope and wish that it won’t break the bank.  This has been on my mind for awhile, and planning is the key to any elective surgery. Oh well – maybe a trip to the doctors for estimates is the solution to this problem.
