Crazy 8's

So, not much meaningful going on today I guess. Just cleaning the house for our small group to come over this evening. I mopped the kitchen last night, and I mean REALLY mopped it. Turns out our kitchen tile is white...not grey. Who knew? I have a brisket smoking, and I've got to figure out something for desert. We're packing our shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, and praying over them tonight. Probably need to figure out some way to play some Christmas music, ha!

Anyway, here's a meme that's been going around, I got it from Kirsten, thanks!

And you went to a special butcher to buy brisket...and, and you smoked it!? I am so jealous! =D You go boy!
