I Can’t Wait…

…for the weekend to begin!

Of course this is a quiet weekend. Because I cannot forecast with enough accuracy some aspects of my personal life, I decided not to join the Whiney Expat Blog Meetup in Bonn.

Which reminds me, I need to cancel my hotel reservation.

Not going to the meet-up means that I will spend my weekend in Weimar—which, as it turns out, will be good for my colleagues as I am going to make banana bread on Sunday. I’ll also be doing other cooking along the way—Pizza for Sunday dinner, and doing something with the remaining chicken breasts that I picked up at the store this week.

Beyond taking a long walk and looking around town tomorrow, I pretty much plan on a quiet weekend with some of my favorite activities like reading The Economist with Coffee at Café Laden Sunday morning, and watching movies at home tomorrow night. I’ll probably even find the time to do a couple loads of laundry.

Gosh it sounds pedestrian when you get right down to it, but it will be relaxing.

Of course I will be doing some work along the way, and uploading photos to Flickr. Yes, I know, it’s been a long time—way too long because I now have a ton of photos to upload.

  • I’ll be raking my leaves. We had a huge storm blow through here on my birthday and it blew most of the leaves off the trees. My street now resembles a 1-lane thoroughfare with fast traffic. 1-lane because everyone has piled their leaves in the gutter.

    After that I will be sanding the drywall seams in my bathrrom and then appling a second coat of drywall mud to even out the seams. Hopefully they will become invisible.

    Perhaps over thanksgiving I can go ahead and paint the sucker! WooHoo! Anyone have paint color suggestions?

    I’m taking pictures so I can do a re-cap of the project on my blog.

    Sounds perfect to me. I wish I could have a weekend like that…alas, I have a lecture to write

    I couldn’t have said it better myself… I’m looking forward to a quiet, relaxing ho-hum weekend.

    Let’s make a pact to catch the whiney expat bloggers next year…

    So you ended up not going to either Bonn or Berlin? You missed a great time.

  • If Berlin happens, it will happen next weekend… I am hopeful.
