The Day After

These creaking bones are moving slow today. I blame the damp weather but it could be just plain laziness. The rain started last night at the party, then temperatures began to drop and now it's gloomy. Today has been as quiet as the tomb. Somehow after coming down off the sugar debauchery of last night, Hubby and I have managed to stay busy most of the day.

It just dawned on me I hadn't shared the pics from last night. I do apologize for the sorry picture quality. I'm still trying to get accustomed to the smartphone camera. Apparently, there's a trick to getting good photos from this thing. Wish now I had taken the Olympus.



Our long time friend and host, Daniel, cooking the roast beast.
He's a master with the smoker.


My plate of smoked pork, pork & beans, cole slaw, beef steak tomato.
There was much, much more and I made certain to sample it all.
My husband's homemade Banana Pudding was a big hit!

Hubby enjoying his meal with me next to Kawasaki Mule.
Now, you know I'd be near the machinery.



This is just a small view of the building Daniel built for
his parents last year. He's quite the master craftsman!
I added a star on the little girl's face. Since she is a minor,
I don't have the parents permission to put her face in
cyberspace. Just want to protect all the little ones.

We're being 'good' tonight, having a strictly vegetable supper (that's my story and I'm stickin' to it). *lol*

Thank you for stopping by. Hope your day was blessed.

Great pictures, especially the ones of you and hubby. So glad you had a good time on New Years Eve. Now, let's pray the rest of 2016 will be good to us...I agree, when we get the White House cleaned, it will have to be better.
God Bless you.

Thank you my friends. And let's remember to keep praying for our country. I think 2016 is going to be a bitter pill to take with the antichrist at the helm. Pray for justice, Christian leadership, and the truth to prevail. In His precious name we humbly ask. God bless us everyone. ~:)

Thanks, Sparky---I about spat out my coffee (antichrist)---anyways---lovely photos, y'all look great and Liam and Dave both like Steve with a beard. (just thought I would throw that in there---grinning)

Many New Year Blessings to you.

Looks like some fine eatin to me! That is a beautiful building. I love that wood. Nice to know there are still kids out there with a craft & actually do things for their parents. We are enjoying some free time (even if I have a bit of a cold), something we don't get much of.

Do not slander the antichrist by calling Obama him! Obama is too stupid of an idiot to be that crafty. Obama's evil is only a result of accident from his total stupidity b/c truly he hasn't got the sense to orchestrate plucking a banana from a tree! Probably not very Christian of me to say that but...there it is! Lol! Happy New Year!

I already miss the "sugar debauchery". You? Thanks for crackin' me up, Sparky! Tell Daniel to smoke me some of that pork. Everything looked awesome. And now for the toast... I raise my imaginary flute filled with cyber bubbly and toast to your health and a joyous 2016!

Sparky said...

Y'all are like a duck that flies upside down, a total quack up! *lol* Thanks everyone for stopping by. Happy New Year. ~:)
