Weekend plans 10/14

I seem to start these threads every week but I like them. I like to hear about what's going on during your weekend.

That being said, what are your big plans?

I don't know what we'll be doing tomorrow. I'd like to go to the farmer's market but that would mean driving into town twice since I have rehearsal in the evening. Our show is starts a week from today. I very well just stay home most of the day and surprise dh with apple galettes. He loves em. Sunday we have a long tech rehearsal and dh is going to help a friend build a shed. Not much going on but it'll be hectic, I'm sure.

This is the show I'm performing in. No that's not me in the picture. I am on the posters hanging up around town. It's kinda weird seeing myself plastered all over town.

Corazon, that is too cool!

I want to go to the Blessing of the Animals at the church. Oh no, dogs in costumes!

Coldest nose?....my pups could win in a heartbeat at about midnight.

Painting again this weekend. Last weekend I primed the walls. My MIL wanted to help so today she was over my house painting. I just got an email from my wife that she actually messed up though and was using the primer instead of the paint so i will be using the actual paint tomorrow or Sunday.

Looks like I'll be doing a lot of winterizing this weekend. This big old house (built in 1880) needs a lot of TLC when seasons change. We'll have a load of firewood delivered, probably next week, which is how we heat most of the areas we use on the first floor. There are three floors. I said it was big.

I buttoned down the last of my veggie garden this morning, so that's done. I planted my rosemary in a large pot this year. I'm glad because I will be able to bring it inside. Love cooking with rosemary.

Might also make the linen change-over from nice cooling percale to warm flannel. That means I'll also put the electric blanket on our bed. Haven't taken those off the bed in one of the guest rooms since no one's stayed in that room in a year. At least that task is done.

Some of the windows on the second floor have to have the plastic film replaced to chase away drafts. The film originally put on in 1994 has lasted quite well. My brother says this house's drafts have drafts and I agree. Still love it, warts and all.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

It will be quiet this weekend. DH is having surgery this morning and the kids and I decided to forgo the sunday dinner so he could just rest and not do the thousand things he does everyday So, any cooking will be for two instead of a dozen and it will be light and easy. Or,what he feels like he can eat and enjoy...It's Pa's weekend

Working again this weekend.
I took a turkey out of the freezer today to thaw in the fridge while I'm gone.
I hope it will be ready by Tuesday.

We don't like seeing you plastered either. Think of the children and cut back on booze a bit.
