Last Day of October

Hi there everyone....well can you believe it? It's the last day of, wow, wow!!! I won't be participating in the Halloween doings today and tonight.....I don't dress up (I look scary enough), don't turn the porch light on and pass out candy to the "tricker-treaters". Nope, no scary pumpkins on this front porch, just two "pumpkin pie" pumpkins, to make pies with for Thanksgiving dinner.

I do have my reasons......first of all, I resent being scared and isn't that what Halloween is about??? Second of all, I will not help to promote diabetes and bad teeth for little children and big kids. Thirdly, have you ever realized how many people, children and animals are sacrificed on this very evening? NOPE I am not a believer in this PAGAN HOLIDAY!!! So there you have it, my reasons for not supporting SATAN!!! Galatians 5:19-21..."and they that do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." You must read the "whole" of those 3 verses to get the  complete idea of what God is saying.
My box of Blue Apron food came on Thursday. I made some chicken soup from a chicken from Sam's Club and made this wonderful cheese sandwich and salad to go along with the soup! Man, was this delicious!!! The recipe card says, "Brie & Pear Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Brussels Sprout, Arugula and Hazelnut Salad" I love that I learn so many new things and use different items to make a lovely meal.
The sandwich was sourdough bread, with slices of brie cheese, with slices of a pear and sage leaves on top of the cheese. Then grilled in a pan. This was so good, the sweetness of the pear and sage and cheese balanced each other off. The salad dressing, on the other hand was so good, I could have eaten a whole bowl of salad by myself, but needed to save some for JP's dinner.

A tablespoon of honey and the juice of one lemon, salt and pepper and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, mixed together and poured over the salad. I omitted the hazelnuts as I am allergic to them. JP ate them all....which was fine with me. I might try this dressing on a regular salad....asap!!!

So Yeah, I would give this grilled cheese sandwich 5 Stars!!!!! I will make it again and again.

I had my computer fixed and got it home Thursday. And yeah, I am still trying to learn all the new things about it.

I was going to blog yesterday, but found I could not download my pictures from the camera into the computer.....URG!!!!!!! Finally in desperation I called Office Depot and got Josiah, the Tech guy that fixed my computer. He gave me a few steps to follow...1st, using the SDHC card in the camera and inserting into the computer. finally I got the pictures downloaded. Darn, I sure did like the way 8.1 worked better then this Windows 10 in that area.

I personally don't see why some things have to change, but I guess "man" is not happy unless he is about changing things, to make things better (?) but inadvertently he makes things worse. Oh well, that's my pet peeve for the day.

This morning I went to turn on the computer and then I could not get on the Internet......I tried and tried, even pulled the plug on the machine. Nope, it would not work. Again, in my conversation to Josiah.....he said to type in Internet Explorer then take that icon and put it on my you can see, I am on the Internet. I tell you, all the hoops one must jump through to get something figured out.

One of the other things I had done to my computer was, finally I had the "office" program installed which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Not sure how much PowerPoint and OneNote will be used....but who knows. I really wanted a Photo Shop program installed but Josiah said my computer would not or could not handle it. Oh well, guess I have to figure out another way to fix my pictures and add words and stuff.

After church tomorrow, I am going to the Stampin'Up Camp. I wondered how I would pay for part of this and it was neat that God, provided the money for me to go and make some cards and buy a stamp set. A friend called me to ask if I would cut her hair.....sure I said, and she gave me $25....I used to be a hairdresser back in the day, yeah, there I times I wish I had continued, but things change and so does life. But anyways, I still cut my hair and JP's hair, so I am still not out of the game. JP and I joke around about how much he owes me in haircuts and tips....yeah, big time!!!!!

Well, I guess I better close here for now, tonight I want to finish making my Hospice cards. Have a meeting on the 6th, this Friday. So just a few more cards to make and I will have at least 50 cards to donate.

You all have a great evening, maybe I will see you tomorrow with the cards I made at Stampin'Up Camp. Keep looking up!!!
Cheers ~ Louise

Hi Susie....yeah, it was a gentle way of showing me his LOVE for me....wasn't it???

I am so glad you have your computer up and running. I do not have 10 and am afraid to download it after all the things I have heard about it.
You can use PicMonkey- a free online program to do just about anything with your pictures you might want to do. You can lighten, brighten, sharpen, watermark them and crop them...all for free. I think you will like that a lot.

How wonderful that your friend gave you $25 for the haircut. It is amazing how God provides, isn't it---even in the little things in life.

That meal sounds absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! I just copied down that salad dressing recipe, too.

Hope you have a wonderful night and Sunday- xo Diana

Hi good to hear from you. I keep forgetting PicMonkey, I shall have to try it. I was going to download 10 myself but the tech guy said I would have to check with HP to set the settings....geez so many hoops. So I decided to have the Tech guy put it in along with the office program and check for viruses cause my computer was running so slow.

Oh neat, I am sure you will like that dressing for the salad.

That grilled cheese/pear sandwich looks and sounds delicious. I'm going to have to try that. I probably won't remember to though unless I write the ingredients down on a shopping list.
I've heard of thin slices of apple inside grilled cheese as well.

Hi Patricia....I shall have to send you a copy of the recipe. It was a delicious grilled chees....I am forever spoiled now.

PicMonkey drove me crazy - i guess I am a dummy - I still use Windows Office Picture Manager. Find your Picture folder (does 10 still have that?) and click on one pic to open it - when it is on screen, see if you can right click and get a dialogue box asking which program you'd like to open it in and choose Windows Office Picture Manager - you can do many things in that Oldie But Goodie - if you find it, and you like it, ask Josiah how to get it to your desktop...good luck -

Hi Evelyn.....I am not understanding PicMonkey either. I shall have to write down your sure would be easy to do my pics with the windows program. I am not sure yet what all Windows 10 has yet. Still learning.
