Saturday we're going with the travel club at our bank, to Fireside Theater in Ft. Atkinson, WI for dinner and their Christmas show. The food is very good, and the show is always good.....so it should be a nice (loooong) day (about a 3 hour trip each way).

Sunday I need to empty gas out of all of lawn mowers, blowers, chipper, etc.....and take the battery out of the rider and store it in the house for the winter. Then we'll watch the last NASCAR race of the season...whoopy! After that I'm making up a batch of bagna calda for supper!!! You'll probably be able to smell it through your computer........LOTS of garlic!!!!

Other than that, I don't plan on doing much else!

Yucky, rainy weekend weatherwise. Stop by Home Depot, get new closet doors for FIL's house with a discount coupon that expires tomorrow. We'll install the doors after painting the closets in two weeks. Maybe do the last bit of sanding on the garage wall where he drove the car into it, if the patch is dry enough.

Tomorrow working 3-11 pm, another day closer to buying the motorcycle.

Just got back from my annual Diocesan Convention. I'm one of several delegates representing my parish church.

I am so glad you asked, since it's not just one of those boring weekends of TV watching.

Friday night I went to happy hour with some co-workers. Then I went to a friend's house and we played guitar hero (a video game). It's surprisingly engaging and requires a lot of coordination. I played bass, guitar, drums, and sang vocal. She also made apple crisp and it was delish!

Today I slept in and in the evening went to the Chamber Orchestra's performance of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. Also ran into some friends at the concert. Such a wonderful piece of music, and so much fun!

Tomorrow a friend of mine is having an annual "card sale" of greeting cards she makes herself from photos she takes from all over the world.

Later tomorrow afternoon, the choir I used to sing with is having its fall concert. They will sing Bach's Magnificant. I think classic choral music is brilliant as it sounds so much better than individual singers.

I am cooking dinner for a friend tomorrow night, since I am too cheap to eat out. I think I'll make a stir fry dish with snow peas, mushroom, and shrimp.

Then, sleep and get ready for another week of w*rk. The weekend is truly too short!

Lil sis has embarked on a gluten-free diet - so she and I are attempting to tweak my grandmother's recipes & see what we come up with. I'm a bit skeptical, however, hope springs eternal re: this endeavor!

Man, y'all live interesting lives! I hope FDude doesn't fall off the float...

As for me, the most interesting thing that has happened thus far is a couple of days ago I "celebrated" my 51st birthday. The only redeeming factor is I'm a little closer to drawing social security....

Wow, Goodsense, this is what I call LIVING! except for that little downer in the last paragraph, the word with the asterisk.

Your post inspired me to put on a Bach CD. It was one of my best frugal purchases ever, was either free or very cheap, don't remember which. It is a sample intro to the complete works of Bach....

I agree, Bach is beyond brilliant. One of the classical magazines does an annual list of reader's favorite music--the chorus from the St. Matthew Passion usually wins.

Sorry to hear about your Monday plans; how much longer?

i have a collection of some 30 CDs of classical music, all found at local drug stores on the $5.99 music rack, bought over the years.
FYI, there was a series put out in 1991 called
"<composer's name> Greatest Hits"
by
RCA Victor, BMG Classics, Dept G-1, Department B.F.
1133 Avenue of the Americas, NY, NY 10036-6758
no web site is listed.
i have Strauss, Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms Greatest Hits from that collection.

we have a wonderful PBS station somewhat close to me called WCNY that plays unbelievable classical music all week long. i have it on now. it's snowing very lightly, i have a fire going, i am FIREd.
aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
