Weekend plans? Any one doing anything fun and exciting?

Tonight is a tv night.
Saturday we have to go to REI and stock up on some new backpacking items. We're going out for three days next week and I NEED a new sleeping mat and Paul wants a new cooking pan. He does all the cooking while we camp!!

Saturday afternoon
we're going to a seafood pot luck birthday party. I'm making, clam chowder, salmon dip and maybe rhubarb dream bars for us to take. We've been warned that it's a "DRINKING" party and we should be prepared to spend the night... so

Sunday.. prbly will be spent on the couch recovering from Saturday. If we're feeling good we are going to take a long walk somewhere.

What about YOU?

I will be working up until Sunday afternoon, which will be my first "time off" in 23days. Have plans to go do some deep sea fishing with a few buddies, should be a good time.

This weekend will be spent finishing painting the kitchen (color is apricot!), yard work, and inevitably some grillin' and chillin'!

Anyone that wanted to bring by the catch of the day to throw on the grill would be warmly welcomed!

We are supposed to be in the middle of a heat wave by the weekend. We were supposed to be spending the weekend doing things around the house that need to get done, but with the temps expected to be in the mid 90's and our A/C not installed yet I think we will probably just spend most of the weekend in the pool.

Weather is supposed to be nice here. It's been cloudy and rainy for over a week so it will be a good change. Tonight is unknown. Probably the usual and bake a cake.

Tomorrow, dh is working but the kids and I will go to the farmer's market and I'm sure Aidan will want to go look at the bike he wants for his bday since it's right next to the market. We'll visit dh at the station at some point. We're going to a bbq on lummi island in the late afternoon. We'll be taking a ferry there and Aidan will love it.

Sunday, dh has a relay race for the fire dept. Then I have an audition to go to and the rest of the day might be spent by the lake. We have a friend coming into town tomorrow night so we'll be spending time with him.

We're getting the same heat wave as you GB. It's in the 90's now and very humid. I'll probably go to a lake for a swim tomorrow. Other than that, I plan on staying indoors! My poor husband has to help someone move tomorrow, which should be miserable due to the heat wave.

Saturday I'm working. Then my vacation starts on Sunday.
Sunday I'm going to the cemetary with my sister to see my dad.
I haven't been there since the day of his funeral back in May.
