If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Weekend Adventures

This weekend is going to be so busy! I wont have much time on the blogs. Today I'm going to the Mercer house to volunteer my time to the families who need help with their kids, their academics, and such. The Mercer house is a place women usually go to get away from abusive husbands, however, I know a guy who took custody of his child and fled to the Mercer house to get away from his exwife so it's not just women. I think there are teens who sometimes go there as well. I'm sure I'll get a lot of information today.

I'm also hoping for a date with My Manly man too :) wish me luck in the endeavor...poor guy runs a mock between working and attending college courses.

 Saturday night is a friends birthday party- so I'm going to have  a few drinks with him and some buddies. Hes a great guy- its amazing we have been friends for almost 15 years. (I know I'm a girl best friends with a guy Oh my!)

On Sunday I am attending the Scottish highland festival out side of FT. Collins (I'm not quite sure if it would be considered inside of Wyoming or Colorado though) I'm hoping to take pictures and show it to you all. :) I'm going down there for an assignment in my emerging fields Scottish literature class.

Don't forget today is the last day of the week to participate in my Wit win- Wing it I'll post the winners Monday morning as well as a new word to wing it!

What are ya'lls plans this weekend? anything you want me to blog about when I attend the Scottish festival?

My weekend doesn't sound nearly as busy and productive as yours! Have fun at the Scottish festival. Love those kilts! :-)

Jen said...

Sounds like a busy, but fabulous weekend!!!! Have fun volunteering, I'd love to hear more about that, it's always cool to hear what inspires others and what nice things bloggers do for their communities.

I'm best friends with a guy so no surprised feelings here!!!

Ooo! I'd love to know more about the Scottish Festival! Is it like Renassiance Festivals?

I have a kid free day on Saturday. Hubby is taking our daughter to the zoo, my plans, to clean my car, get my cell phone fixed and to read Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

Take care

What a busy weekend. Have fun! Mercer House sounds as if it will be a character building experience. We have family coming for the weekend.

Jennifer Shirk said...

I can't wait to see your pics from the Scottish festival.

Michelle said...

I have to work a few hours on Sunday and early tomorrow, but I'm planning on trying to get a lot of writing done this weekend, too. We'll see how it goes.

Hey, thanks for following my blog, by the way. A pleasure to meet you!

I'd love to attend that festival. Sounds much more fun than my weekend of work. (At home work - it's neverending.)

Carolyn V. said...

I think that is so awesome that you are helping at the Mercer house! So cool! We are celebrating a b-day this weekend (not mine). =)

Broadswords, please. Blog about the broadswords. I'd like to know how many guys in kilts had 'em, and how good they were with 'em. Best of luck with all your endeavors! And blog when you feel like it.

Summer Ross said...

Thanks everyone for your well wishes and comments!

Jen~~ I'm not sure if it is Renassiance but I'll bet atleast part of it is, I'll take a pic just for you with it :)

Postman~~ I'll see what I can do about the broadswords (it might just be pictures though)

Angie said...

Fun, fun weekend! I am taking my fam to the zoo tomorrow. Today is the beginning of birthday week (three birthdays this week), so I should be having a fun weekend too!

Ellie said...

Gosh. You have got a busy weekend! I'm afraid mine sounds quite dull in comparison. Working Saturday and then lots of sleep, followed by blogging and writing Sunday.

Have a great time x

My plans are open and kind of vague....but, wow! You sure have a lot planned for yours! Kudos to you for volunteering. And I would love to attend Scottish games. We have them here every year in the mountains, but I've never been able to get there....

Have lots and lots of fun!!!!

I heart comments~~ You all Rock my world!
