Tonight was the last year of 2010, and I don't know about you, but I am not going to miss it.
From my dad passing away, to my health not being the best, to opening my eyes to things I was in denial about, and then we ended our last day of the year at a funeral.
My daughter's ex boyfriend's dad passed away. We all went to his dad's funeral to be there for him. I always teased him that he was like the son I never wanted. But I would be proud to call this boy my son.
Tonight we celebrated by staying at home and enjoying the company of my hubby, my girls and friends Sharon and Jim. We enjoyed cards, even if I didn't win.
My hubby had is yearly drink. Its called a "Black and Tan". It is gross, but then again I don't drink any type of alcohol, never did like the taste of it.
His drink is made with Harp ale and Guinness, then you pour it so the dark beer floats onto of the light coloured beer. He is so proud of himself when he makes this. I have a few bent spoons from him doing this.
We enjoyed Cornish hens for supper. Hubby was in charge of cooking them. Only thing is he didn't check the weight and we had to keep putting them back in the oven. We didn't eat until 9:00pm, lol. We stuffed them with dressing. Here is a funny conversation Kristy had with Sharon.
Kristy: Why is there stuffing in the butt. This is just not right.
Sharon: Because the juices from the bird adds flavour to the dressing.
Kristy: Who was the person that thought Oh lets shove this into the chicken's ass so the stuffing has more ass flavour.
I laughed so hard, I almost spit my drink out.
Then we talked about the tail end of the bird. Kristy asked about this. I told her when I was young I loved this part of the bird because it is crunchy. My dad asked me why I liked the "popes nose". (still don't know why he called it that). He then asked, you know what that is don't you.... Nope.
Its the part of the bird that goes over the fence last.......(blank look on my face, I am sure). He proceeded to tell me its the birds butt flap.
Last time I ate that sucker, LOL.
Wouldn't you love to be at our dinner table, teehee.
When the clock stuck midnight, I opened the front and back door of our home to let the old year out and to welcome the new year in.
So here is to 2011!
Looking forward to the great experiences, and new friends that this New Year will bring to my life.
Hope your New year is one full of Happiness.
