I feel like I haven't slept in a week. We had the horrible storms Friday night with 80 mile per hour winds. I live across the street from a big shopping center, so I was lucky to have had my power turned back on after only after 30 hours. Many people in the area still have no power. We had our class reunion on Saturday, with just over 100 classmates showing up (we had 720 in the class). Monday was a golf outing, parties Monday night and last night. Our parade this morning, which is one of the largest non-commercial July 4th parades in the country. And the final reunion event is a cookout and party here at my place to watch the fireworks tonight. All in 95 degree temps.
I love the 4th!

at 7pm tonight it was still 100 degrees. The only saving grace was a small breeze, and we were on the east side of the house so we had some shade. Note to self - do NOT schedule a cookout in that kind of weather. Although I was already a hot mess (and not in a good way) manning the grill didn't add too much to it. Plus every time I sprayed water on the coals I sprayed myself.
I am SO glad the reunion stuff is over. I loved seeing so many old friends, but being on the committee was a lot of work.
Put everything perishable away, the rest can wait until I get home tomorrow. Off to bed. I hope everyone had a great 4th!
