Workin' for the Weekend

Spring is finally here, and I finally have time at home to enjoy it. I had to work during that unseasonably warm weekend we had, when temps reached eighty. I am off this weekend so now it is my time take care of my to do list.
First item on the list- Take Christmas lights down from the roof.
Yeah, Yeah, I know it's April already. At least I turn them off after Jan. 1st. I just had a few weather issues with the ladder this winter. Besides, I asked Lady Di to do it and she refused.

Second item on the list- Get materials to finish the deck.
Last summer, I started building our deck. I got everything done, except for the railings, before it got cold last fall. So I decided to finish it the following Spring. Then we had unexpected warm Autumn weather. I was in a quandry. Should I finish? Will the weather last?
I decided to put up Christmas lights.

Third item on the list- Get the summer stuff out, put the winter stuff away.
This means getting the basketball hoop, porch chairs and grill out of the garage. Get the snow blower summer-ized and put in the garage. Time to polish up the lawn flamingos and arrange.
I hope I am not trying to do too much this weekend. I don't want to finish everything on Saturday and have nothing to do the rest of the summer.

Oh wait! I have Ethan's piano recital to see on Sunday. I don't want to be too tired for that. All that other stuff can wait for another weekend.

Thanks for stopping by once again and leaving your words.

I badly want to be at Anaheim for game five as I am proud to be the Wild's official good luck charm.

Dear my friend,

I am a Land surveyor and used to go to out-station for 3-4 days a week and let her my danish alone in the home. Pity of them. But I need to earn money to support them. I wish after I have the Land survey license and I able to enjoy my effort where I put in now.I think you situasition is better than me.

Slinger:Keep up the great pictures. I'm sure they can help the Wild long distance.

Lkc_lai:It is good advice to slow down and spend more time with the family. I hope you can visit the US sometime. And I hope I can visit Maylasia also.
