I think that this week mugged me - where did it go? I had such plans for it! I was going to write an essay and everything!
So, it is the weekend again - what will I be doing?
Well tonight is, of course, pizza night so later on I will be making dough and sauce, grating cheese, chopping salami, etc. This will be "helped" by a few bottles of the beer that I had left over from Christmas. Mmmm beeeeer.
Saturday will (weather permitting) be the first barbeque of the year. Not sure if the kids will want to eat outside - they will probably sit in the living room playing XBox and Wii while I do manly stuff in the garden.
I will also be doing more reading for the delayed essay - American Agriculture - such a riveting topic :-)
I also want to start work on some new toy soldiers that I bought today. They promise to be really nice when I finish them, so watch out for pictures some time soon.
What else? Oh yes, my daughter will be getting more bass guitar lessons. I started teaching her a while back but she seemed to lose interest. Knowing that it is not a good idea to push her, I let it slide. Then, the other evening at a school open evening where she was choosing what she wants to study for the next 2 years she opted for a huge music course. Really? Cool! We had better get lessons going again then! The reply? Turns out she has been practicing regularly the whole time and knows a couple of songs by heart now! I was amazed and delighted! That girl never stops surprising me. Of all our kids she is the one that I only seem to think I know, because every so often she shows a facet that I was totally unaware of.
Anyway, better sign off now!
Have a great weekend!
