Janie starting going down hill fast the last few days. Yesterday she started having trouble breathing. The vet met us at her clinic last night at 9:00 pm and helped her pass. We were both by her side. She was an angel in life, and now she's an angel in heaven. I'm so glad we could spoil her rotten and give her a wonderful life these last almost five years that we had her. RIP sweet Janie. We love you.
LOL...I couldn't figure out how to slow the text down at the end, and I ended up putting it up there twice trying to fix it...then I couldn't get rid of it when I tried to just delete it! That horse face at the end came out of nowhere too! Ha-ha-ha. I have no idea how I managed that one. I swear...old people and computers. I WILL figure this out! Love you for watching while I learn.

1/3 cup cilantro, roughly chopped (Use mint if you don't like cilantro)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Place pineapple and cucumber cubes into a large bowl. Zest two limes over the top, add cilantro and salt & pepper. (I used two pinches of kosher salt, and I think it's essential to get the best taste from your salad. I also think it's essential to use fresh pineapple, not canned.)
I didn't want to buy a whole pineapple, so I spent a little more and got a pre-chopped container at the grocery store, which was less pineapple than you'd get if you used a whole pineapple. I still used a whole large cucumber though, but only one lime since my salad was smaller.
We ate it right out of the bowl for lunch, and we both thought it was to-die for. Try it!
I found this recipe on Pinterest. Credit goes HERE.
It's a beautiful day today so we ate outside in the backyard.
Is this a crabapple tree?
Whatever it is, it's gorgeous all covered in these bright pink flowers.
Fletch wanting some pineapple-cucumber salad.
We've yet to find anything he didn't like.
He ate pineapple and cucumber pieces.
There's a pink cast to this picture because we're under a big red umbrella.
I smashed it down, but it still almost didn't all fit in.
But just look...
Is that fantastic or what??
I bet it's going to be good!
There's also a double batch of chili in the crockpot.
We're expecting twice the people we usually have.
All the snowbirds are back in town and will be here.
My dining room is all a mess because I'm still in the process of mopping. (Fletch is a big help, huh? Hee-hee. I just mop around the dogs. He's smart enough to stay up out of the way at least.) I'm taking a little break. I don't know why I always freak out and feel like I have to clean like a mad woman. People only come in to pee, and they don't have to walk through anything but the kitchen to get to the bathroom. You know they peek at the rest of my house though! Haha.
We got the porches ready yesterday.
See that water fountain in the middle of the big porch?
We're still in the process of getting it set up like we want it.
It used to be buried in the front of the house in the garden.
We never got to enjoy it there really so Ken moved it out back.
I'll show it to you when it's done.
Okay, so about that "Boobies" title.
Ken said I should put "boobies" in all the titles of my blog and I would get way more hits and visitors to my blog. LOL. He has no idea I'm really doing it. We'll see what happens. I'm not really going to do it on every post. It's an experiment. Calm down.
