What I'm Reading This Week #20

Happy Friday all!  I hope the week has treated you well and you're ready for some productivity or downtime depending on what you need.  Everything from the mid-back down needed a rest yesterday after my gardening adventures the day before.  We did squeak in a quick lap around the hood just as a storm was rolling in and got home with 3 minutes to spare.  I hoped to grill out some pork chops but it was still raining so I did them on the grill pan with some sweet potatoes and peas/green beans.

Let's grill up...

I'm hoping I can get the flower food and mulch down between rain showers so we can get the baskets hung on the patio.  Other than that, no real major plans, obviously.  I know they are slowly reopening things this month but we won't be one of them out there as our numbers continue to climb.  We're prepared to not change much for quite a while.

Any plans for the weekend?

  1. I was forgetting what day it was until I read your first link. But it truly is Friday!! I know it doesn't matter that much overall but at least I still get 2 days where I don't have to babysit a work laptop over the weekend. Have a great weekend everybody!

  2. I've been having to look at the newspaper that arrives every morning at work to figure out what day it is. Then I can't remember later on! No major plans this weekend. I'll do the laundry today after work and we'll grocery shop tomorrow morning. I'll watch Nascar on Sunday but it's during my "sleep time" so we'll see which one wins out. lol Our replacement grill grates are coming today so I'm super excited to clean up the grill and be able to have grilled food again! And there's one thing that really worked out with the stay at home order for me with my new work schedule...I was supposed to have jury duty on Monday but the courts are still closed, so we've been excused. I don't mind serving at all, but considering I would have had to go straight after a 12 hour shift, spend 8 hours at the courthouse and turn around and go right back to work for another 12 hours, I'm thrilled to bits to have gotten than reprieve. =o) Hope you have a fantastic weekend and can enjoy some patio time!
