Okay, here’s what I’m either doing or would like to be doing this weekend. Other ideas? Put them in the comment section. I love comments and I’m nosy so I love to know your plans too.

Now that gas is cheaper, driving to Tuscaloosa/Northport for an art show doesn’t seem that crazy of an idea. And with the money you save on gas, you can buy something cool to hang on the wall. Better investment than the stock market right now. The 37th Annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts is Saturday and Sunday, 9 to 5 both days. Daily tickets are $10, under 12 free. I went last year for the first time and really enjoyed the selection of works and the music. Fair warning, the food is a little pricey and you’ll want to get in line early.

I think Saturday will be the perfect day for a fiesta. Luck for me, there is a Fiesta planned — Birmingham’s annual celebration of Hispanic culture and heritage will be held in Linn Park on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Come celebrate our neighbors to the south with art activities for the kids, music, food and dance. Admission is free; however, they — they being the Chamber’s Hispanic Business Council — welcome donations to a scholarship fund that benefits local outstanding Hispanic students.

Me and the hubby are coming up on 4 years of wedded bliss and I’m a traditional girl so I expect traditional gifts. For the 4th anniversary, traditional means flowers. Now is a good time for planting so we’re going to hit the Fall Plant Sale at the Botanical Gardens this Sunday to stock the yard. While not as big as the spring sale in April, there will be a good selection of green things for your green thumb. Sale is noon to 4. And honey, I’m looking forward to other year full of fun and surprises.
