Hey, are you free on Saturday? Do you want to do something?

I'm busy on Saturday, but how about Sunday?

Sure! Sunday works for me

What are you thinking?

How about a drive out to the beach? I've got the car this weekend because Mike is away.

Sounds good! What time?

I can pick you up from your place about 9 if you like

I'm going to the gym first thing in the morning

Shall we meet a bit later, say 10?

Perfect! Do you fancy a picnic? I can go shopping while you're at the gym

Great! Even better! See you tomorrow!

In this weekend, I have many things that I have to do, and I want to do. I think I will do my homework in this weekend. I have a lot of homework because of the class can’t do in campus due to the coronavirus. There are many reports that have to write many words, and I have to prepare for my presentation. I want to go to shopping to buy Father’s Day present in this weekend. Last week, I was busy because of homework so I was not able to go to buy a present. I think buy a special tough rice cracker that my father love and I will make lemon no bake cheesecake because my father loves it. I want to do exercise. I’m not getting enough exercise recently due to coronavirus self-restraint so I will be going for a stroll or play exercise video game. The video game name is Ring Fit Adventure. This game is very nice exercise video game playing in home. Furthermore, I want to play mahjong. I am really into mahjong on the internet recently. There are some rank in that mahjong app. I want to raise my rank much higher. In this week end I want to raise my rank at least one.

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...
