TGIF, thank the Lord

It's been a crazy week. The bike accident. Busy deadlines at work with crazy clients. A frantic 30 minutes searching for a set of keys that had fallen out on the sidewalk in a frantic attempt to run & catch a bus.

I'm ready for the weekend.

No big plans set in stone yet, but here's what I'm hoping for:

A movie night with fun friends. the big question - do we see Mother, the psychological thriller showing at the boutique theater by the university, or do we go and scare ourselves silly with The Shining, at a theater where we can drink beer and eat pizza in the theater?

on saturday, i want to go on a bike ride (the bike doctor said it was okay to ride!) and i love how a long ride makes me feel totally satisfied and tired. i know i'll be tuckered out and sore early, since its one of the first rides of the season for me.

 after that, i hope to play in my kitchen and attempt my first roast chicken. I got a new (to me) cookbook the other day, Tyler Florence Dinner at My Place and it has a yummy looking recipe for Roast Chicken with Wilted Lettuce and Peas. Before playing in said kitchen, I need to get over and grab some veggies at the Farmer's Market... I just couldn't bring myself to buy them at the store.

Sunday afternoon, there's a benefit concert over at the Tractor Tavern, a great venue in Ballard. The Blackberry Bushes String Band is playing, and I do love me some bluegrass. They have lyrics like 'hold back time, start the day with kisses and end it with wine,' which I think it a life-philosophy to which I can subscribe. Also, I'm hoping a good friend of mine will come and bring her new boy, who I have not gotten to spend nearly enough time with...

Doesn't it seem like the weekend comes just when you cannot. wait. another. day.
See you all on monday!


  1. Sounds like the perfect spring weekend! I love The Shining but Mother sounds intriguing too so I'm sure whichever you choose will be great. Happy bike riding and bluegrass-listening :)

  2. I'm loving your weekend plans, lady. Even if you get to do half of what's on your list, I think you'll have a great one.


    ps: now go free that window from that nasty basement, will ya? ;)

  3. Sounds like a great weekend!! The Shining scared the living daylight out of me, to the point where that oven commercial with the twins gives me the creeps.

  4. Did you make it to Tractor?? It's my new favorite.

    Also which movie did you see? I don't know if I could chose between the two!
