Plans for the weekend?

chit-chat thread
We don't have a whole lot going on this weekend. dh is taking Aidan to a movie this afternoon, while I take Callum to his dr. appt. He has to get 4 more shots.
Tomorrow, I have a class in the morning. Weather is going to be gorgeous, or so I'm told. I'm going to say I'll be home getting a big dinner ready but we will probably play in the sun all day.
Sunday will be an easy, hopefully lazy, day at home.

What are your plans?

Weather is not supposed to be that good for us this weekend. It will probably be 50's and rainy. On the off chance that we actually get some nice weather then I will do some prep work in the garden.

I should also do some cloths shopping, but I hate doing that. I could use a new dress shirt and tie as I have a few affairs coming up in the next few weeks. I also need some more cloths for work. I seem to do the same thing every time I need cloths. I go out and buy a bunch all at the same time. Then of course they all need to be replaced at the same time. I should really learn to stagger it better

Supposed to be rainy here too, on and off. Need to do some more garden cleanup to get ready to plant something.

I also may have to do some work this weekend, but after checking email at work, no assignment yet.

Have to go buy daughter a children's book in Spanish so she can do a book report on it - in Spanish. For Monday.

Daughter's lacrosse game on Sunday, if the weather cooperates.

Going to a school play my grandson is in tonight and then to a nice dinner. Resting from our little trip and catching up with house work, laundry and such. It's so nice to home and sleeping in my own bed again. And of course, visiting with my pals on DC.

Nothing going on tomorrow, dh works. Sunday, we may take the boat out and fish. It will depend on the wind and if we find a boat ramp that is open, since we are still over 4' low.

I have the same plans as GB actually. Weather is suppose to be rainy this weekend, and so I will get in some gardening when I can and do some clothes shopping. I'll cook dinner both days but nothing planned yet.

Wish we would get some rain...there's a chance in the forecast, so I'm keeping my finger crossed.
HB is working tomorrow, but he's off Sunday, so at least he'll get one day of rest...sorta. We have a date Saturday night, and he's going to do our weekly shopping Sunday morning. For a man who hates to shop, he's become a pretty good shopper. All I have to do is make him an explicit list, with items listed in the order one would find them when going through the aisles. (my mom taught me that trick)

looks like a lot of gardening planned. That sounds nice. We are in the process of re-landscaping outside. We cut down a bunch of trees, took all the stumps out and flattened the ground. Next is top soil, then we will hydroseed grass and plant bamboo on our property line. I think in front of the bamboo will be a long flower bed. No gardening for me until next year. Besides, I have a black thumb.
