    Yes indeed, and Spring is coming soon. That means for those of us in the Northeast US - we can start going outside on the weekend, wOOt!!

    Crazy excited.  I am attending an all day conference tomorrow for work, so it is a silly way to spend a Saturday...but it is out of the office at least!

      Yes, I have to go to a wedding this weekend (one of these "friend of a friend" things).  I guess there's always Friday evening and Sunday!

    But, like you said it's going to be spring soon enough!  I've already started wearing the sandals hoping that it will bring spring faster...

    funride, do you have snow in Portugal right now? (Is it still on the ground?)

    1. funride profile image65
      funrideposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      To find snow in Portugal we must go to the top of our highest mountain and even over there it´s not covered with snow the entire winter.

      In case you don´t know I live in the best place in the world http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_68.gif.

      Ask to the thousands of English people who spend all winter in Portugal wink.

        Dummy me! I checked on a map, I should remembered how close Portugal is to Africa, for Pete's sake, and you have similar weather to Southern Italy - of course there is no snow!!!

        I went to Spain, and other countries in Europe, but never made it to Portugal. I bet it is beautiful!

    Its snowing in Bend, Oregon today.  But earlier this week it was spring-like with temps in the mid-60s (F, not C, of course!)  And YES - I am really excited for the weekend!

    Wah!  It's Saturday already... I'm nearing the end of my one-week vacation from work. sad

    I'm curious, is the Holy Week also a paid non-working holiday in other countries? hmm

      No, we don't get any paid days off here in the States.  But at least its still Friday here.  smile

    Really?  No paid holidays?  That sucks.  Hehe. tongue

    I'm now looking forward to the next non-working holiday, April 9, which is Araw Ng Kagitingan (Day of Valor).  Countdown begins on Monday.  Haha! big_smile

    I am so happy it is Friday! 

    I am so happy it is a holiday weekend and that I will get to see children and grandchildren:-) 

    The weather is beautiful for those in Southern California!  Simply fantabulous!

    Bunny report will be that Sunday will be spectacular for egg hunting and Easter Services! 

    The horizon is awesome for the weekend.  I hope everyone is able to get out, see people they love, enjoy the beauty of the earth...  and have a wonderful weekend!

    I didn't realize you didn't get any paid holidays in the states. We get at least 12 statutory days off a year which have to be paid.

    1. Stacie Naczelnik profile image72

      We get some, just not Easter.  And, it depends on where you work.

    Well I'm back from sunny Houston and now I have a relaxing weekend ahead. Missed the snow though so I'm heading up hiking on Sunday behind the ski hill. Can't wait!! Nothing better than snow and sunshine, except maybe a hot shower after traveling all day in a plane. Gotta love Fridays.

    Surely Good Friday is a public holiday in the US?

    Paid for full-time employees?

    It is supposedly a Christian country, after all ...?

    1. RFox profile image73
      RFoxposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, but like Canada it is also a Capitalist country. Sometimes they pay you, sometimes they don't. They also have strict requirements for who qualifies to receive public holiday pay. It really is determined by who you work for.

  28. Inspirepub profile image81
    Inspirepubposted 9 years ago

    I don't really differentiate between work and play, since I only do work I love to do.

    But many of the people I love are more available on weekends and public holidays, so I tend to work a bit less on those days and socialise a bit more.

    Unless there's a seminar that weekend, of course - then I do really long days and I love it!

    If only we could get everyone out of having to work or go to school Monday to Friday. Life would be so much better.

    I get most of the federal holidays off and paid because I work for the state.  This means Christmas, New Years, Martin Luther King Jr Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, etc. (not exactly in that order).  But, as a state worker, I don't get all of them off.  We do get other extra days that Federal workers don't get, like Christmas Eve and the day after Thanksgiving. 
    I've worked at some jobs where there were less days off.  Right now, we don't get another holiday until the end of May.

    In the UK we get both Good Friday and Easter Monday as a public holiday which is nice.  As to weather we had snow yesterday - unusual at Easter.

    Hope you all have a great Easter weekend, whether you are working or not and whether you are basking in the sunshine like Funride or Writeon or wrapped up warm like Rfox  smile

    funrideposted 9 years ago

    LOL!!

    My plans are great, tomorrow I´m going to work. I´ll have to drive 250km to get there. The good thing about it is that I´m going with my partner and my daughter and we will stay in a hotel on the top of "Serra da Estrela" (Star Mountain) the biggest one in continental Portugal.

    It´s also great because I was not able to work for too much time and now I feel like I´m profitable again big_smile.


    Great weekend to all! smile

    Saw Iron Man last Thursday (May 1).  Really nice special effects.  But the movie in its entirety didn't leave my jaws down and my eyeballs popping out like the movie Transformers did. big_smile  (Transformers really upped my expectations of movies in this genre. tongue)

    Haven't seen Iron Man yet but my 4 1/2 year old grandson saw it and thought it was "COOL".  Probably wait for it to get to the cheap movies or just rent it.  Nothing coming I want to see except Indiana Jones!  Love the adventure and Harrison Ford's not bad either!  smile
