Weekend Whatnots

It’s Friday…..


I checked the weather for our area and it looks like we are going to have a pretty weekend… so I may work out in the yard!


mermaids_basement_smI also have the following book I have been wanting to read:

Mermaids in the Basement

by Michael Lee West

(aka Gollum at Designs by Gollum)


What are you planning to do this wonderful weekend?


  1. I'm working on my "thank you" post and I am also getting ready to dive into "Mermaids In The Basement!"

  2. we are going to spend it with famiy, having a nice dinner to celebrate a few birthdays that all fall within 2 weeks of each other. way to early to work in the yard,,,for us, its not until april or may--sometimes march if we get warm alot-but the way its way. we are still buried in snow.

  3. I should have ordered Mermaids in the Attic to take on vacation with me. I have to work tomorrow. And Sunday I'll be packing. Woo.. Hoo.. I can't wait to reach 70 degree weather. It is suppose to get up to 48 degrees here today. That's the warmest it's been in months. Maybe it will melt some of this snow. Right now, I am really digging in and cleaning house. I have... to come home to a sparkling clean home after being gone. It's my birhtday! So, maybe we'll go out for supper?? Not sure yet! Have a great weekend! I wish I could work in the yard. Hugs, Terrie

  4. Sounds like your weekend will be a great one. I should bet that book. I love Gollum's posts. I am anxiously awaiting my new camera so I can take pics of all the projects I've been working on. So I think this weekend will be pics and blogging. Have a good one. Hugs, Marty

  5. Susan,

    Congratulations on your recent awards. As always, you are so deserving!

    I am glad the south is warming up! I know you Southerners are not used to this cold and I hope you did not have any damage to your plants. I was worried about you girls!!

    Let me know how you like the Mermaid book. I have been to Gollum's blog and she is terribly funny!!

    Have a great weekend! :-)


  6. Today, I am going to a hair appointment and to a funeral of a friend's husband. Tomorrow, I'm going to a wedding shower and a fundraiser. It's a busy time right now. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Susan. :-)



  7. I need to get off this computer and clean out my courtyard. :-)
    Have a great weekend.

  8. We have a beautiful weekend on tap here in Florida. I may go to the beach and sit and read my Mermaids In The Basement and maybe take along some crochet work,
    Enjoy your weekend.

  9. 72 degrees on Sunday! That would be wonderful!
    It's raining here.

  10. It will rocket up as warm as 29-degrees here in frozen New Jersey today. I wish I could venture into the garden, or even outside!

    Enjoy your book and your garden! -- Cass

  15. I am going to the Mall of America, shopping at Ikea, and then sorting shoes from the foyer closet. Your weekend sounds better than mine. ~ Robyn

  16. I just read a review and Mermaids in the Basement looks like a fun read. Enjoy!

    My weekend will be spent at my part time job, talking about cholesterol and statin drugs.

  17. Weekend ♥hugs♥ to you also!
    Weekends are always busy which is a good thing:-) Mostly cleaning house and going to dinner. We are in charge of a party tomorrow night for 35 young single adults ages 18-30 from our church. They are a fun group to play with.
    I would love to curl up and read a great book. I will have to go check out the review on Mermaids in the Basement! My husband will gone out of town to WARM Houston next week and I usually read a lot when he is gone. ( My sisters family lives with us though so I won't be alone;-)!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  18. I am visiting with a girlfriend, a little shopping and a lot of home projects. We got up in the 40's today. Warm for Wisconsin this time of year. Cindy

  19. I want that book too! I drove tonight, first time in 3 years! Doc says 10 min at a time. I got to meet my doc's wife's friend that owns the country store here. She is a nurse too. I want to go to the little town and go to thrift shops. I had three grands all week and I am very tired. Thanks for the sweet comment. I did not think I was going to get through that post. So no enough talking for me. Thanks for caring.

  20. Hi Susan
    I hope you have really nice weather so you can work out in the yard. Can't wait for that....
    Marc is back from working in Jacksonville so we'll have a nice quiet weekend...we'll probably cook up a little something together tomorrow night and rent a video I'm sure.
    It'll be nice to just catch up.

  21. Our weekend is going to be pretty, too. We'll probably go to watch our grandson play basketball.

  22. Our weekend is nice also!!!! We are cooking out steaks with friends tonight. Thanks for the tip on the book! :D Jewel
