That's Nobody's Business but the Turks

Here is an outdoor stove and a barn that was converted into a house. I'm a little excited at all the outdoor stoves and fire pits I see around my neighborhood. I'm hoping it means a lot of drinking in front of flames within stumbling distance of my house once it gets warm enough.

This week was so much better than last. I'm all ready to slide into the weekend, without a big burning ball of stress in my belly. Nice. I also don't have as many projects hanging over my head this weekend either. I'm sure I'll eternally have cleaning and organizing projects, and I'm still working on the cupboards, but I've been chipping away at stuff, so it doesn't seem quite as daunting.

If I'm lucky, my days should be full of running and house projects. Stinky is babysitting both nights for my friend Eggo. Her husband's birthday is Saturday, so they plan on celebrating both nights of the weekend. I say, good for them...And not just because Stinky owes me money. Coadster might go see that Dear John movie, along with every other high school girl in town tomorrow night. She has a show choir competition on Saturday, so she won't stay out late. Unless something better presents itself, I'll probably stay home tomorrow night and maybe drink a beer or read or watch a movie or watch that house hunters show on the House and Garden network that I'm a little obsessed with lately.

Saturday night the plan is to drop Stinky off at Eggo's and then pick up some of my girly friends to go out for dinner and drinks. I'll stay out as late as Eggo and her hubby do, and drive them home and pick Stinky up at the same time. If nothing happens to throw a wrench in my plans, (and that's always a big if) this weekend could actually be quite lovely.

How about you all? Feel free to tell me all about your lovely weekend plans in the comments.

This weekend I hope to make it home after two weeks away; you know: pick up the mail, feed the cat, shovel 100 feet of snow, sip a little wine, and sleep in my own bed.

That would be cool if your whole street did a huge barbecue night or two during the Summer! I love the smell of barbecue.

I have to go to a funeral this weekend, sadly. My brother's father-in-law died the other day. We'll probably hang out at my brother's house, too.

and besides that

I seriously love H&G tv. Thank god I dont have cable or I'd be watching it all the time. Mike doesn't have it either.

That sounds great! I am headed down to my sanctuary for some good company and the Superbowl!

Fire pits, outdoor ovens and BBQs are wonderful places to gather. I hope you get lots of invitations.

Your weekend does sound good! I'm sure it will work out.

I have to work on Saturday, dadgummit. I'm sort of hoping for a movie day on Sunday, but who knows?

Oh, and Girlie Girl and 2 of her friends are seeing Dear John at this very moment. She was so excited and ready to sob.

I think the first comment felt like you didn't have enough Chinese sex talk on your blog!!

I've got no plans this weekend. Maybe house cleaning.

And from the looks of it, your first commenter is going to Hong Kong or something. Hard to top that!

I still watch the odd show.. hoping it gives BHM some much needed inspiration to get some stuff Well it looks as if you got your weekend all wrapped up and ready to go.. Have fun.. I love backyard BBQ's and firepits.. sadly we are not allowed to use those in the city limits.. But there is always a way around that..ha ha 1
