With all of this weekend's activities, it looks like I'm going to be making up for my two completely unproductive days last weekend in which all I did was sleep (not that it wasn't needed).
Portales has some great activities lined up for this weekend, which include a concert by Christian bands Big Daddy Weave and Mike's Chair. The concert will be 6 p.m. Sunday in the Eastern New Mexico University Campus Union Building.
Portales High School students will also be putting on a production of "My Fair Lady" this weekend in which a girl from the streets comes to a rich businessman to learn to speak properly. Personally, I'm excited to finally see a live stage production of this play, because I have never had the luxury before. But just as the high school's production of "Guys and Dolls" did, I know it's going to make me want to go rent the cinematic version afterwards.
Along with these activities this weekend, I'm also hoping to talk co-worker Christina Calloway into getting her first horseback riding lesson with me. She's not the only one it will be a new venue for, so we can start from scratch together.
