Planning My Gadabout Weekend

On this rainy Friday morning I perused the News and Observers' Weekend Section to see what's going on in Raleigh.  There are always many events to choose from reminding me how lucky I am to be living here.  This weekend is no exception.  I'm recovering from skin cancer surgery on my nose, so I'm planning on treating myself to several events.  But which do I choose?

Going to a movie is always fun either by myself or with friends.  That's just one of the many things I miss about not having Dan here.  He was my favorite going-to-a movie-partner.

There are two movies I would like to see this weekend, and I might manage to see both.  Kedi is a documentary that by popular demand is enjoying a second run at the Rialto.  It's for cat lovers, so count me in.

Another movie is The Zookeepers Wife based on Diane Ackerman's book by the same name which I enjoyed.

A movie would fit right in for this rainy day.

Saturday morning I've signed up for the Young Life 5K in which I am sponsoring my 15 year old granddaughter, Grace, who will be running.  I on the other hand will do a 1.5 mile walk (probably with my walker in tow).

If I were young as I once was I would definitely be taking in the Rock n Roll Marathon's after party that will be filled with numerous musicians at the Red Hat Amphitheater.  But alas!

Today, Saturday and Sunday the Art In Bloom exhibit at the NC Art Museum will feature 50 floral masterpieces based on work of art in the museum's permanent collection.  I could do that today to perk up a dreary, rainy day.

Forecasts for Saturday and Sunday are calling for beautiful days, perfect for taking in the Raulston Blooms Festival at the Raulston Arborteum.

I will surely have to get over on Saturday for the grand opening of Fresh Local Ice Cream that is opening its second store in Cary.  I have patronized the one on Glenwood Avenue for the last few years, and now I will have a second store from which to choose.  I love their ice cream.  The best I have ever eaten anywhere.

Of course the big event of the weekend will be the NCAA ballgames on Saturday night.  Dare I head out to a sports bar to watch Carolina play Oregon???? Probably not.

I'll post about my gadabouts when the weekend is over.
