Hump Day Happiness......almost

Good evening friends. Well we are heading downward toward the weekend now.  I am very excited.  Mr. P. has  been having to work 10 hrs. per day, six days a week for quite a while and he is suppose to be off on Saturday.  No plans right now, but will be so nice to have him home.

I have looked forward to this evening all day.  I spent the day cooking and preparing for our special guest we were having for supper.  When Holly and Stacy got married, I promised to fix supper and have them over every Wednesday night.  That got old and didn't last too long.  Since I have lunch with the girls so often, and we are always together, we seldom have them here for a meal. 

I put a roast in the crock pot early this morning and the house smelled so good all day long.  I made homemade sauce, and later shredded the roast and we had barbecue.  I fixed the Brunswick stew and had bought the coleslaw to go along with the meal. We had chips and homemade sweet pickles also.  I baked a cake for dessert and all was well.

There were pictures of everything.  At least I thought there was.  I went to get the card out of the camera, and guess what??? It was still in the computer from the last blog post I did.  I could have cried.  And this is not the first time I have been soooo stupid.  I am sure none of you do things like this.  From falling off the bed, and now this... I will never believe it has anything to do with my age.{heehee}

So, guess you will just have to imagine the table set all pretty.  { I did use heavy duty Styrofoam plates} And we drank from my new colored mason jars.  The cake turned out really pretty until Mr. P. played in the icing because that is the only part of a cake that Darbee Rae likes.

But,,,, being together, sharing a meal with my little family made for a great hump day.  Sorry about the pictures.  Hope you all had a wonderful day as well.  More cold weather is here and more headed all our way.  Please stay warm and safe.  Spring is definitely on its way.

Until Next Time......
