Weekend starts today!

Today's Himmelfahrt (or Ascencion day, if you prefer) and we're off! We slept in until 10:30 this morning. I think we slept about 12 hours in a row. We must have needed it. I've taken tomorrow off as well which means that I have a four day weekend! Yeah! Hey, if we can't go on holidays this summer, we might just as well make bridges with holidays that fall close to the weekend, right? I've been spending most of the afternoon today visiting blog sites because I simply had too little time this week. I've got so much catching up to do!

Anyway, I do have a lot planned for tommorrow, like getting my summer tires on (I know - just didn't have the time), wash my car (it's full of pollen!), visit a few town halls for detailed infos the many places I've lived in Switzerland for Orange's application to move to Canada, do the groceries and pack for the evening. That's right, we're invited to a 50th birthday tomorrow and we're staying overnight. I'm sure I'll post about it. Hope the weather is good.

So what else is planned for the coming weeks? Well, we're flying to Amsterdam mid-June and end of July, we're off to visit our good friends Pinki and Andrea for 4 days in Vienna! What else is in store for us, I don't know just yet.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend (mine started today!) Hehe!

Have a great weekend!

Amsterdam sounds excellent, ET and I have mentionned visiting there too someday. One of my co-workers is dutch and tells me it's a great experience :) Especially the cafes.

Although Vancouver, where I live, has also been referred to as "Vansterdam" for the like-mindedness towards drug policy the city has shown.

Anyways, have fun this weekend and I'm glad to see you have a nice summer lined up!

Cheers!

Xmichra - That Oiler's game looked very exciting from what I read and the picts you posted. Besides, this trip will be more visiting family and only a 2 days :(. Nevertheless, I great city indeed.

P.- LOL. No cafés, this time :) "Vansterdam"?? Cute name. I wasn't aware that Vancouver was so open towards drug policy. Ha! Learn something new everyday! :)

CS - I guess when I checked earlier no post but P made up for it! The drug policies aren't as relaxed here but they are more relaxed than most of the US...

I'm happy you guys have 4 days, and I knew that and was wondering what you were doing. :) And well a small trip sounds fun, something we are in need of doing but not sure yet...

Expat Traveler said...

oh it's closer to the swiss policy - not sure which way to go...is it legal or not... that is vancouver or canada....

Same in Germany on most taking off today to make a long weekend/holiday. It makes for a great way to get time off without having to take more than a day off work. Good for you.

ERnjoy another get-together with friends and family! You do such a good job of it!
