My four day weekend is turning into a three day weekend

Here in Canada it is Victoria Day weekend this weekend, the coming Monday is a statutory holiday here.

I took this Friday off. I dislike clients coming in to get stuff done before the long weekend and waiting until the last minute, usually Friday afternoon, to do it. I took Friday off so someone else can deal with those situations should they occur.

I am trying to get away for a weekend trip. My Friday will be reserved for dealing with errands for my mother. There are certain tasks that can only be done during a weekday. My Friday will just be doing work of a different sort. Then the weekend is mine. All mine.

There likely will not be a lot of future weekend trips. These days I spend Saturdays with mom. I have less time to do things. Everyone knows gas is damn expensive. Everything else is expensive as well. I am not sure how anyone manages to afford anything these days.

There is rain forecast for Saturday/Sunday/Monday. I do not really care. I need to get away and do some things to get my mind off other things.

Why does it always seem like one has to do a lot of running around to get a lot of things done just so you can spend a few days not doing anything? One of those little life mysteries.

Patchwork


And just down the road from the witch house (posted May 13) is this barn with the patchwork roof.

Blog notes

I noticed that all of the comments were being marked as SPAM. That is hopefully fixed. I recently commented on a few sites and I was marked as "Anonymous" rather than BWBandy. I will have to watch out for that next time I comment somewhere. Blogger still likes to throw off my formatting after I post.

May my Friday the 13th not get any worse than this.
