Weekend Things

Hi, guys.  Sorry to be a bore on this finally sunny Monday afternoon, but this post is going to a little picture-less.  I really try to snap a picture of the fun things I do over the weekend, but I’m also part of team “I’m not posting pictures with crappy lighting or ugly backgrounds,” plus I really don’t like to force things and sometimes I’m just not into taking a picture of every moment of my weekend.  Such was the case for this past one.  And because picture-less word heavy posts probably don’t appeal to most of you, I’ll keep it short and sweet.  Ready, go!

Friday: A soaking office floor (yay rain…), dinner at home and beers out with friends to celebrate a birthday.

Highlight: Watching a girl by herself on the dance floor for at least an hour.  Eventually a guy got up and danced with her and we all cheered like crazy.  I would never do what she did, but good for her and her (probably alcohol-induced) sense of self-confidence.

Saturday: I spent most of the day at Hannah’s dad’s house, where she grew up (and where I basically grew up too), helping clean up from the flood water that more or less destroyed his lower level.  I was on picture clean up duty, but there was a gang of people there to gut the basement.  I was so sad to see the scene of my childhood down to the studs but the number of people who showed up to lend a hand was no less than astounding and completely heartwarming.

I still can’t believe the amount of mud that was on the street.  I’m so glad I own this pair of rain boots.

Highlight: Saturday also happened to be Josh’s birthday.  There’s nothing like spending all day gutting a basement on your birthday to really say “Welcome to adulthood!”  Anyways, later that night we all headed over to Joey’s brothers place to watch the Canelo vs. Mayweather fight and I believe I speak for all of us when I say, “What the hell was Justin Bieber doing there?!”  And also, why do we refer to Canelo by his first name but Mayweather by his last?  I don’t get it.

Sunday: rain, groceries, laundry, more rain, more errands and soup.

Highlight: Everything but the rain.  We made this Green Lentil Soup with Curried Brown Butter and holy amazing!  I think this will become a soup season staple.  Also, between a trip to Lowe’s and a trip to Home Depot we now have ten TEN samples of gray paint.  Help.

P.S. Be glad I decided against photographing that lentil soup 😛
