Stay home because of pandemic

I will be locked in the house by the covid19

I am not doing a plan at this weekend. Because I am at home, at guarantine. we can't go out with the coronavirus pandemic reason. If we go out, policemen are writing punishment.

I'll go to the beach with my flatmates, we will share food and we will eat chocolates, strawberries and wine. Probably, we will see the sunset.

My plans for this weekend is to retreat myself.

I sm planing to meet with my daughters

I'm going to wake up first thing :) but serious, I don't have any plans yet. Certainly I will learn English by this website, maybe I will go out somewhere with my friends on Friday and go shopping alone on Saturday. On Sunday I'm planning to get some of rest and staying home, maybe I will go out for a walk or cycling excursion.

in this weekend i am not doing nothing of expecial. In this weekend i didn't meet my friends, i think i'll meet them on monday or tuesday. I spent all my weekend at home, studying english and listening some english song and watching tv. today the weather is a little cloudy and windy, so i prefer to stay at home. Maybe, this evening, if the weather isn't windy, i will go for a walk alone, listening my music on my cellular phone.

now i come back home after 14 day's hard working in drilling rig and i planning after visiting my family, make a fantastic trip to a persion gulf beach...

I'll meet my family this weekend. We'll celebrate my parents golden wedding.
