A Great Day

The birthday is over. It was a great day. We had good weather, sunny with a gentle breeze. It was a day good for BBQing and sitting outside. Menu: homemade guacamole and chips; veggie tray; grilled chicken marinated in lime and garlic; Italian sausage; hamburgers; pasta salad and coleslaw; and pie - apple, cherry, and blueberry with vanilla ice cream.

Everyone had fun. Son and his friends, family, and some of my friends. It was good.

Now everyone has gone home. Dishes are done, all cleaned up. And the house is so clean! That is one of the perks from a party, a super clean house. I mean. Why do I wait until a party to clean like this? I like it so much when it's done.

We ended the day watching The Museum with Ben Stiller, funny, cute. Soon, it's off to bed. I hope I sleep tonight, something I have not done much of lately.
