My weekend has been, well, read the title...
On Friday night Mom and Dad sanded the apartment floor. They were up until 11:30 doing it. The sander that they used made a lot of smoke too, so the fire alarm was going off for 4 hours straight. It was loud... Also, there was tons of dust that was going EVERYWHERE! It looked like 9/11 just happened in there... there was a lot more dust than what this picture shows.
On Saturday, I woke up at about 9, ate some fruit and granola cereal, and helped in the apartment. I learned how to drill screws in to the floor (!!!), which was pretty comical at some points because the drill was very overpowering and it kept running off the screws... hey, it was my first time!... Don't worry, it's okay if you laugh, I did. Then I learned how to use a staple gun. That experience went a lot better then the drill...
We worked on tar papering the floor to get ready for laying the hardwood. In the afternoon Jordan (who got her wisdom teeth taken out the day before) came over to help. After milking we debated on wether or not to go to the strawberry festival, but decided against it since it looked liked it was going to rain and because we were all tired. So Noah and Jordan went to town and got a movie, hard stuff (pop), and some pizza... After we ate, I put on my bridesmaid dress and shoes and Noah put on his attire for the wedding, so my mom could see what the suit and the dress looked like together. The dress fit pretty well, but the shoes aren't really comfortable. I guess I'll live, but I promise you, I will be taking them off right when we get to the reception!
|Aren't we awesome???|
On Sunday we went to church, had left over pizza for lunch, and then there was a storm. I wanted to try to get some pictures of a lightning strike so I went outside with my camera. I didn't get a picture of a lightning strike, but I did get a picture of something else... I wasn't positive that it was a tornado at first so I watched it a little bit longer then yelled for everybody to come out. By the time they came out it was going back into the sky, so they didn't see much of it, but I showed them the pictures. :) It was so amazing to see the tornado get larger then weaken and go back into the sky. If it were closer I would have been freaked out of my mind, but I knew that it pretty far away. After that happened, we just stood on the porch and watched the sky. There were three different spots where the clouds were circling around each other, but they never got strong enough to actually form anything. It was scary, beautiful, and amazing all at the same time.
Later on, after milking, we went to Jordan's parents for supper. After eating way to much (the fresh fruit was mouthwatering...) we played clue, which I had never ever ever played in. my. life. That game is now my favorite, just so you know. :)
I think that about sums up my weekend in a lot of words. What did you do last weekend?
