Hi, Grigoriy!

What are your plans for the next weekend?

GrishaGrisha, 2017/03/20 14:06

Hi, Vitaliy. I don't know what I will be doing… Most likely, I will make house cleaning and I'm going to go somewhere…

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/03/21 12:36

Thank you for your answer. Where do you prefer to go at weekends? Cinemas, amusement parks or maybe night clubs?

GrishaGrisha, 2017/03/22 22:15

I usually go to cinema with my friends and I do housework and homework. I don't like night clubs. How do you to spend your weekend?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/03/29 14:42

Ok. I can't say that my weekends is full of interesting events and such kind of things. Usually, I try to finish all the works (including my housework) I couldn't finish during the weekdays. Then I have my running in the park and walk with my friends. Sometimes I go to the theatre or cinema, sometimes I visit my parents who live out of the city in a countryside.

What is your ideal weekend? It's interesting to discuss if we hadn't any restrictions (I mean financial ones as main of them) how would we spend our weekends.

As for me, I would travel a lot and would visit all interesting places around which can be reached in two or three hours.

GrishaGrisha, 2017/04/03 18:38

Oh… I'd do all kinds of things… For example, I will buy ski and learn to ride them…Also, I would try different kinds of rest…. Such as, snowmobiling, shooting and I would fly to Norway to snowboard. Oh..trust me.. I have many plans, but I do not have an opportunity. People should have definite plans for the weekend, what do you think?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/04/04 13:12

Frankly speaking, I haven't a sound answer for your question. Sometimes I suppose that planning can provide more efficient and enjoyable rest, from another side occasionally my thoughts are that the free time should be free even from plans :) In fact, I should admit there were about 50% of weekends which had been planned in my life.

And another interesting question, even if you have your plans for weekends how often do you stick to the plans?

GrishaGrisha, 2017/04/05 20:31

Not as often as I'd like. I agree with you a hundred percent. I think, the plans must be implemented if you are to achieve their goals. What do you think about?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/04/11 11:00

I think you are completely right and but I should admit that never have the goals of my plans very determined. They always are quite vague and I have the opportunity to correct them in process of implementation.

So… How are your last weekends? The spring is going to be, isn't it? )

GrishaGrisha, 2017/04/12 11:24

Spring is here! I have been putting the tires on my car. Last weekends, I was resting and thinking about my life..) Until now, not much came up. These weekends should be more productive for me. I think, every second of life is important for everyone. What do you think about this?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/04/14 10:51

I think that the assertion is a good internal motivator. Sometimes I also practise it for fits of a lazy mood. )

I'm going to change the tyres of my car not earlier than the beginning of May. The spring is quite uneven in the Ural.

Heard that the forthcoming weekends is going to be rainy and cold. Does such kind of weather help your productivity?

GrishaGrisha, 2017/04/16 15:07

I'm glad the snow is gone. This weekend was useless for me. That actually proved I may not be making the best use of my time. How was your weekend?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/04/17 12:58

I spent Saturday preparing my car for the tech inspection and passing it. Finally, all went well and I can use my car one more year. On Sunday I visited some of my friends and we had a good time together.

So… You was able to write the answer and it means that your weekends wasn't useless for your English at all! )

Snow in the mid of April… It's not what I'm glad for ) but it's our life. What do you think of the wind on the weekends? Aren't you afraid to go out and be swatted with a piece of roofing slate (or something like this) like a fly? )

GrishaGrisha, 2017/04/21 07:20

You had kind of weekend. I don't pay attention to the snow of April, because it's quickly leave us. The wind was terrible. I felt it, when I was inside in the my car. The car swayed from the wind. I will wash my car after the mud, that has accrued from melting snow. I don't quite catch your words. You did you mean : mosquito, fly, bot fly…., don't you?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/04/21 12:34

Yes, I applied the word “a fly” in the sense.

What do you plan for the next weekend? I'm going to Kamensk-Uralskiy on Saturday. I'm going to have some excursions and visit the local history museum. I'm interested to know about the times when the town was one of the first mining plants in the Ural.

GrishaGrisha, 2017/04/21 14:15, 2017/04/21 15:10

I only fear the fly with “encephalitis”. You have the interesting plan. Clearly,that weekends will be the “Productive weekends”. My colleague come from Kamensk-Uralskiy. He said me “This town had the different manufacturers in the Soviet era” I have to choose where I'll go in the summer. It's one of my plans on weekends.
I think the weather's set to be lovely, isn't it?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/04/24 21:25, 2017/04/24 21:50

Yes, the weather was lovely for our travel.

We visited a lot of interesting places. Below, one of the oldest stone buildings in Kamensk-Uralskiy is presented, the house which they used as the main office of Kamensk mining plant. Nowadays, the Local history museum is there.

After that, we had a walk along the bank of the Iset' river.

The rock below has name “Stone gate”.

And finally, on our way back home, we decided to have a look at the rapids of Revun near Beklenisheva village. There was a competition. People went through the rapids with their baidarkas and catamarans.

So… Did you make a choice concerning your summer travel?

GrishaGrisha, 2017/04/29 20:05

You have the beautiful weekends!! I am thinking about my summer travel, but I haven't decided if I'm going. I going to go fishing with my friend tomorrow. I'm not sure where…. but I know our way lays to Kamensk-Uralskiy, It's round 50 km from Yekaterinburg.
What are you doing this weekends? Do you go somewhere..?

Vitali SolomeinVitali Solomein, 2017/05/24 14:47

No, I'm going to stay home for all weekends because I don't feel well.

Hope your fishing was successful.

Thank you for the conversation!

See you!
