I threw a birthday party for my sister Lani today. She’s turning the big 5-0 next week!! ;) The turnout was pretty good. We had a ton of food leftover. Fortunately everyone made to go plates. There’s no softball tomorrow (Memorial Day, ya know) so it would have taken longer than normal to consume everything with 10 less guys in the house. Nick was the grill master of the afternoon, even though he had the meat cooked 5 hours before anyone got here. All right, maybe not that early, but most of it was done before people arrived. It actually turned out quite well because everything stayed warm and we got to eat right away. His burgers got rave reviews.
As a side note, it was one of those rare occasions where I had to thoroughly clean the house. As high traffic area as my floors are, I don’t typically get random dirty stuff stuck to my feet. Strangely enough every time I walk around now I’m peeling something off the bottom of my foot. And not just peeling something off, but having to aggressively wipe away some sort of sticky residue. Weird stuff I tell ya.
It was the first super humid day of the year and some pretty big storms rolled in later in the afternoon. Tornadoes, hail, straight line winds and such. The sirens by our house went off at one point, but other than that it wasn’t very stormy directly where we are. It was really neat though. From the sliding door in our basement, I could see it start down pouring over the softball field before it started raining on our house. It cleared up in less than 5 minutes, and I hadn’t realized how dark it had gotten until the sun came back out. Everything after that was uneventful, although I guess there was a lot of damage elsewhere.
