The weather the past few days has been crazy and it is so hard seeing the devastation of towns nearby that were hard hit by tornadoes. Yesterday the sirens went off in our neighborhood for about an hour and I found myself sitting in the basement keeping the dogs from running back up the stairs to check out what was going on outside. A nearby neighbor's house caught a small fire on the front room of their house and three fire trucks were in our street trying to resolve that issue, we also lost power. Needless to say my stomach hurt a little bit after that long day of stressful weather but obviously we are very thankful to see the sun today.
The sky is blue and it's 68 degrees out right now. I was home and just started to make myself some lunch when Matthew called me and invited me to lunch with him. It was such a pleasant surprise. Usually Matt is too busy during the day to take much of a lunch and he has invited me in the past right after I already ate. Today it worked out perfectly. I put everything back in the fridge to save for later and drove to Matt's work and picked him up. We went down town to a lovely gourmet pizza joint we had never been to and got to sit outside with their huge restaurant wall up, feeling the cool breeze through out our entire meal. We got a very flavorful, healthy pizza and then the most delicious tiramisu we had ever ate. Eatened? Ate. Who knows, the point is... this was a good day.
