Yum on the brunch plan! I hope you have a great time with the grandkids and parents over. :)

I don't have a lot of room for a treadmill in my small house, but I want one! One of these days... We should keep our eyes open for sales on new ones (maybe a basic model) or something used.

I snagged a discounted take and bake veggie pizza for lunch yesterday. Not bad. Usually I buy and freeze, but I learned the tomatoes don't do well once frozen. Better to eat that kind fresh. We've made our own pizza before and I should stock up on toppings soon to do that again.

Ugh to a headache! I hope you're headache-free today and have enough time to clean up and also read. :)

Have fun with your cousin! I keep up with one cousin's scrapbooking projects thanks to a blog she uses to display hers and other family's work. (It's called Scrapbooking Beats Housework. LOL) She's also occasionally a writing buddy since she encouraged me to try the National Novel Writing Month back in 2010.

Should look up my other cousins' Facebook pages to see what's up with them. My mum usually mentions now and then who's having a baby or getting married, etc. :)

Hope the home improvement goes well. We should get to some painting at some point, to fix little messes from the last owner's painting jobs and some miscellaneous oopsies that have occurred since we moved in. (An example: I keep the boys' toy box in front of the closet door to discourage the kids from going in and taking out all the spare toys. Unfortunately, I rubbed some paint from the box onto the door!)

Your finger foods sound great! I should try that here some time. (But what's cheese slime?)

Sounds like a great weekend!

Does your church put the sermons online within the following week? Ours is supposed to do that, but apparently had website issues and is working on it. I'm hoping they do get it right soon - even though I manage to get there more in the winter, late spring and summer get a bit busy with outdoor plans for Sundays...

I should get out for bike rides again sometime. I think I could use Hubby's old bike if it's still road-worthy. Someday I should buy my own - never had a new one growing up, just whatever my older sisters used before me. An exercise bike would be a nice alternative.

Do you make your own spaghetti sauce? I do, and I find it handy to brown the beef and then put everything in the crockpot for the afternoon. :) Should try making marinara at some point to try to duplicate the sauce from the local Italian restaurant known for its spaghetti (and its noisy dining area LOL).

1. What do you have planned this weekend? Not much for Saturday, but on Sunday after church and lunch, we're going to MIL's house to visit prior to her birthday (Monday).

2. When will you have time to read this weekend? Saturday and hopefully a bit on Sunday.

3. Will you go to church Sunday? If all stay healthy, yes. (I've heard some coughs from one or both boys, but I'm hoping they'll be feeling well. Otherwise, I may go on my own!)

4. Will you exercise Saturday or Sunday? I should... Didn't feel well the week before last, then slacked off this week. I blame AF but it's also my fault!

5. What's for dinner? I might make stuffed peppers since we haven't had them in a while.

1. Tonight is just hanging at home, tomorrow I work during the day. I am going to meet my cousin tomorrow, she is in town with friends. We have been Facebook friend's for a few years, but haven't met. She is actually my cousin's granddaughter. 2. Tonight for a bit, maybe a little on Sunday. 3. I might meet my cousin at church tomorrow. Sunday we will do either church or Sunday school, but probably not both, due to home improvement projects we need to get working on! 4. Just working tomorrow. 5. Tonight was finger foods (hot wings, cheese sticks, mushrooms, fingers, celery & carrots with ranch, plus cheese slime for DH)

1. What do you have planned this weekend?

DH is out of town so we will have an easy-going weekend. DD is babysitting my niece at our house Saturday and the weather is beautiful.

2. When will you have time to read this weekend?

A LOT!!!

3. Will you go to church Sunday?

Yes, I work there so I go every week! I won't get to hear the sermon, so I'll try to listen online.

4. Will you exercise Saturday or Sunday?

I'm sure I will get a walk or bike ride in both days. I may take the kids skating Sunday.

5. What's for dinner?

Probably spaghetti since I have all the ingredients and it's so easy.
