I think we've got it covered at our house.:


It is so hot up here!! it's 102 in the sun where Sasha was. What is everyone doing who has the Memorial Day Holiday? We are staying home and just existing, a little yard work, a little BBQ, a little baseball, a little rest, and getting ready for family!
What's everyone doing???

Well I don't think its going to be that warm here. Local weather puts us about mid 60's but hopefully little rain. Have to plant up many, many containers. I have about 4-5 (or so) flats of annual flowers to do. Plus wash up all those plant containers for next yrs sale. Plant veggie garden, wash windows, finish up a couple small furniture redo's, maybe shampoo a couple carpets, have a few drinks, read books, play with cats and try to squeeze some relaxing inbetween!!!!!

Well it's only a two day weekend here in NZ. It's already late Saturday morning, and I haven't acheived much apart from surf TCS, open my curtains and have breakfast. Actually I'm planning to go and have a shower and get dressed very soon! After that I will tend to all the critters, and then perhaps wrap my friend Elien's pressie. This afternoon I'm going to my Friend Eliens 16th birthday party, I'm staying the night and then tomorrow morning Nana is picking me up and HOPEFULLY I'll be able to spend sometime with my boyfriend, if not I will just stay at home with all my babies and surf TCS some more. Tomorrow night I'm going to Nana's and we are going to have a roast together!

We're going to be on our way in about an hour or 2 for Texas. We should get there around midnight. We're hauling 150 lbs of live crawfish up there to boil for my sister and her neighbors Saturday. Then we're heading home Sunday so we can relax Monday and do absolutely NOTHING!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

That's exactly how we are. We rarely plan. We just do it. One of my friends plans out her entire weekend from Friday night to Sunday and my eyes glaze over, I can't handle it. We will be there Monday, I do know THAT much. So if we see you - great!!!!!!

Going to do some spring cleaning that I have been putting off because hubby and I have been so busy with his catering. I want to make some flavored olive oils with my herbs that have been growing like weeds in my herb garden. Plus I want to do some scrapbooking or crafts that I haven't had time to do. I am having creative withdrawals. I think I am going to try and find that thread that someone posted some drink coasters they made and try some of those.

SPEND SOME TIME WITH MY HUSBAND ON SUNDAY. The most important thing I must do.

Well, due to car-related reasons I'm having a 4 day weekend. Tomorrow a good friend is getting married, so between driving 1 1/2 hours there, the ceremony, the reception and driving 1 1/2 hours home I'll be busy all day. Sunday is for running all my Saturday errands I missed. I'll probably rent some movies on Monday. Tuesday, I have to take my car in for repairs-the bracket holding my muffler on rusted through and is dragging on the ground. Unfortunately, I have no BBQs planned

Working...all three days.

I'm not getting a 3 day weekend, because I will be going into work tonight, this is considered a Saturday Morning shift, but to me it's really Friday night. I'll work until 8am on Saturday morning and then I'll have Saturday and Sunday nights off and will go back to work on Monday night, which they consider Tues morning. Does that make any sense? Sunday is my Birthday, so I'm going out for a nice lunch with some friends at my favourite Deli. That's all I think I'm doing for the entire weekend.

haha. Ill be doing what I usually do, sleep in late, go on the computer, go outside, go on the computer, watch tv, sleep. O_O Though ill be doing that slower, and maybe not going outside, and sleeping more, because it has been a stressfull week with my highschool graduation, and my contracting of Giardia O_O ^_^ Maybe ill get to do something fun :O

I'm just going to be recooperating from surgery yesterday. (Carpal tunnel sucks, especially in your dominate hand. I feel like I can't do much of anything, I'm lost without my left hand!)
post #19 of 27
What a pretty picture!!

NOTHING here, it is only me, and we will just walk, read, go to water park, and call friends.

Giving the horses a bath and tending to Trav's feet (mud fever)

Visiting our new puppy we take custody of him on Wednesday- (can't wait) We are thinking of three names here and can't decide-

Vader, Jedi or Yoda? Think we have a theme going here?

Other than that, trying to do some work in between feedings and working on the newsletter-

Well today I worked in the yard all day planting flowers and shrubs.

OUCH - my body hasn't been this sore in years! Who would've thought yard work could make one so sore?! I hope we're going out tonight cause I need a Corona!! or 2!

Memorial Day picnics tomorrow and Monday. And I'm off on Tuesday too - for a icky dentist appointment.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend!!! Hurray - summer is finally here!

I'm wiped out and it's only Saturday.

Slept until 8:00 (what luxury!) but had an appointment to have my oil changed at 9:00. Still managed 3 cups of coffee. From the oil change, went to WalMart for cat food (what a madhouse!) and then to DSW, for their big shoe sale (got 3 pairs). Topped off my gas tank and headed home.

Bill figured that today was better than tomorrow for groceries and we did the weekly shop. Once home, I cleaned the bathroom and half of the kitchen. I'll mop it tomorrow. Frankly, I'm working WAY too hard, for a holiday weekend.

Monday, my parents are coming for a barbecue: big slabs of ribs, baked beans, corn-on-the-cob and potato salad. For dessert, I have a watermelon and Pops is bringing pie and ice cream.

Well it is 3/4 through Sunday here, and I'm so bored! I wish my boyfriend wasn't busy! *sigh* Nana is picking me up at 4:30 and I'm really excited to see all the kitts again and have a roast chicken.

Yeah! We're doing this with neighborhood friends up here. That sounds FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!! Ribs! Corn! Watermelon! I just made fresh salsa from scratch, or some would say pico de gallo....added tiny bits of peaches and nectarines and it's instantly summer salsa. It's about 85 here and this has been the sunniest Memorial Day weekend here in years!
