Weekend To Do List

Friday was a productive day at the office and a restful evening at home.  I had put a package of the cooked frozen pork chops to thaw in the fridge during the day, so I reheated half of a pork chop in a frying pan and cooked some frozen corn and had that for dinner, with some steamed broccoli.  There are 1 1/2 thawed pork chops in the fridge for later.  I spent most of the evening video chatting with daughter.

Daughter is coming home for the weekend, tomorrow!  We are both excited about that.  :)  She will fly down tomorrow afternoon and then, fly back up on Monday afternoon.

Today, I am grateful for:
- The end of  a rather turbulent week
- Daughter's planned visit
- A safe commute home
- The long weekend ahead
- Exchanging emails with a friend

This weekend's to do list:

- Put gas to the car
- Do grocery shopping
- Give the house a quick clean
- Pick up daughter at the airport
- Spend the afternoon with daughter
- Attend the monthly prayer meeting in the evening

- Spend the day with daughter

- Spend the morning with daughter
- Take daughter to airport in the afternoon
- Do laundry
- Tidy the house as needed
- Water the garden
- Meal plan for the week
- Maybe sew/work on a project?

How was your Friday?  What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. It sounds like you are one busy lady! My weekend is still consumed with packing and cleaning up the house to get ready to put it on the market for sale. It's a lot of work- we've been in this house for a long time. I am also taking the time this weekend to play with my children- we've been pretty busy the last few weeks and haven't really had any "sit down and give them our undivided attention" time, so that is my main goal for the weekend. :)

    So glad your daughter is coming home to spend the weekend with you. Have fun.... and behave! :)

    1. Dawn, LOL, don't worry, we always behave ourselves. ;-) I don't envy you on packing up and cleaning. That is a lot of work! May I suggest that you declutter a much as possible before you pack? Playing with your children sounds like a good weekend goal. Have a great weekend.

  2. Congratulations to DD for completing year 1 of this post graduate program. Hope you'll pass along my suggestion that DD eliminate potential for further financial fiascos by using the security of electronic banking. Far more secure than cash, cheques, credit card or money order, electronic banking can be likened to the difference of riding a donkey to your destination or flying between SF & SBD. A few clicks from any computer, smart phone or even Apple watch, transfers sums from DD's account to vendor. She can set it the day of conversation but effective the date the sum is due. Changes are easy peasy if at least one business day in advance. Can't recall a MO once mailed or delivered to a vendor.

    I likely sound like a heretic but if the vendor accepts credit cards, DD can sign up for air mile points [whatever benefit preferred] and earn air miles to pay for trips. She would likely only pay tax for trips. So long as CC is paid in full by due date, there is no interest or fee and she will have built up a high FICO score. That score is critical should she ever buy a car or some major purchase in the future.

    1. Hon, lovely to hear from you, again. Hope all is well with you. DD has electronic banking and a credit card. But the rental company requires cashiers checks or money orders for all financial transactions. It would be very convenient if they accepted electronic transfers of funds, but they don't. Every month, when it is time to pay the rent, I transfer funds from my acct. to DD's and she goes to the bank to get a cashier's check and then, takes the check to the management office to pay her rent. :)

  3. You are a busy lady.. and really accomplished a lot this weekend..

    1. Judy, there's always so much to be done! But I got most of my list done, so I feel happy about it. Hope you, too, had a good weekend.
