Today is Friday. I have the weekend to myself!
Hubby and the kids and my nephew are all going skiing with my mother-in-law. They are traveling up to Maggie Valley this evening and won’t be home until Sunday evening! They will have a lot of fun. They all love the snow and the skiing and the playing. I hate all of it. I used to go with them and ski too. but I fall a lot. And nearly every time I fall, my knee bends to the side. Now my knees are Very Bad Indeed. And they finally stopped begging me to participate. Plus, you know, cold and wet has never been my favorite feeling.
Saturday I am going to a baby shower for my sister. This one is thrown by a friend of hers and most of the guests are friends. But I am family. She is my sister, so I can go to as many baby showers as I want. The shower this time is at a restaurant. I have been to a baby shower a restaurant before. I didn’t really like it too much. I hope this one will be better, funner, more integrated. Next Saturday, I am throwing a baby shower for her. That one is mostly family, with a few friends. I am planning a whole big menu of homemade appetizers. I am probably getting myself into a fix, but I am having fun with it. Who doesn’t want to try Asiago cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon? Or homemade spicy wings, baked not fried? Or homemade humus with garlic and olive oil and homemade pita chips? Or homemade spinach and artichoke dip? I know I want to try all of those, so I am going to make them!
Sunday I have to do a Latin translation to turn in on Monday. We have our first test in that class on Wednesday. That will mean we have had one test in each class. Did I mention the other tests? I made a low C on the Science one. I made an 87, a highish B, on the Health/PE one. I will study for the Latin one a lot. I expect to make a B on it. I always make B’s on the Latin tests.
While I have the house to myself this weekend, I plan to exercise. Which I have neglected so far this week. I also plan to try and clean in my bedroom some. It is a storage disaster in there! I need to catalogue and shelve about a hundred books in the library, too. The library work will be relaxing. The bedroom stuff will be a nightmare. The exercise is going to suck, but I will just do it and try not to pout. OH! And my sister brought my juicer over! I juiced three apples this morning for the yummiest apple juice EVER. I plan to use that a lot this weekend and figure out what tastes good. I have apples and oranges and carrots and celery and grapefruits just waiting to be run through that monster!
I’ll post again on Sunday evening. Have a good weekend everyone!
