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!

You are welcome, see you.

For this weekend I have some plans around my house. On Saturday need to clean my garden, to water the flowers and to make tidy the yard because on Sunday we are expecting some guests. We arranged a meeting with my relatives at my house because I haven’t seen them for six months since the corona started to spread. We are going to have a barbeque party with a lot of food and drinks. My father will be in charge of the grill and my mother will prepare her delicious desserts. I think it will be quality time with my family. I'm planning to organize some outdoor activities and other games, so children won't get bored.
