Phew! Made it through a very busy, crazy week. That's the worst of it for the school year starts winding down.

Tonight, I have a project to submit for an online course...need to get the reference page formatted and write the conclusion. Taking a break to do Teslet stuff (special ice cream trip tonight to an original soda fountain type place).

Tomorrow, I'm decompressing and doing NOTHING except whatever Teslet wants.
Sunday the usual chores.

How 'bout everyone else?

Tonight grocery shopping, and try to finish watching "the Artist" without crying or falling asleep.

Tomorrow, belated Easter brunch get together with some cousins and an aunt I haven't seen in ages. Hopefully I can steal my niece from my sister afterwards for an auntie day. She's been itching to go shopping, and I could really go for a pedi.

Sunday, no plans yet, but SO and I usually end up at some friends for wine, silly games, and Game of Thrones.

tesla you are superwoman! Enjoy your Saturday.

Ice cream and soda fountain! Lovely!

Tonight is the gym, picking up baking supplies and baking...tomorrow is my friend's birthday/moving away brunch and party (hence the baking need, I am the cake maker, let's hope they turn out okay!)

Sunday will be biking to softball in the park with friends. It's really spring! yay!

Sit. Feast on your life.

I'm trying to decide which cleaning/organizing project to tackle this weekend. It's either the garage or the spare bedroom/computer room. Although, it may end up being some of both, without finishing either.

I've also got some yard work to get done, and I'm supposed to get my tires rotated. Add in the usual trips to walmart and the grocery store, plus laundry and regular type cleaning...yep, there goes my whole weekend.

Moo that sounds like the best sort of sport themed get together. Feel free to gather derby pie recipes for the rest of us

IrishLass, feel better soon. Glad its nothing serious.

Sazzy that sounds like a fantastic destination for work! I hope there will be time for you to hike

Homework and more homework! 2 research papers due in the next 10 days, a presentation and too much reading! If I get enough accomplished might hear some live music tonight.
Of course it is a beautiful day with a lovely walking trail behind my house... It is the annual town Spring Stroll with flea markets and businesses having open house, music, food! Everyone one will be out and about in our quaint downtown.

No! Research, read, write papers!

There is a wonderful life on the other side of hell.

Last night, I met a friend for supper. Today was yoga and then taking willie to the local Bark for Life event.

Willie is the 2 time champion for the Musical Sit event, so it's a priority to defend his title!

Sunday will be laundry and maybe cutting the grass.

Agh, rising, I can so relate to that. But not this weekend! ; 0

k9, hope you have someone helping you with the cleanup, that totally sucks. As if the eternal winter wasn't enough.

I had a great happy hour last night at the chi chi cocktail bar with a trio of favourite peeps. Then walked home via my favourite wine bar for risotto and mushrooms and a glass of gorgeous riesling to usher in spring.

Fortunately did some walking and riding, as it was a majorly caloric day!

I'm tidying up for a girls night pizza party, a long-postponed gathering for my boss' birthday which was in JANUARY, but things kept getting in the way.

They are bringing gourmet pizza and lady beer (prosecco), I have to rouse myself off the couch soon and go get the wine and some profiteroles for dessert.

Tomorrow I plan on doing nothing except the daily walk and maybe some yoga. Bike if it's nice, and chilling out on the eating LOL.

Can't pack it away and burn it off like I used to, but it's fun to indulge from time to time.
