WRITING: Weekend Activities

Write a paragraph about your weekend activities. / Escribe un párrafo sobre tus actividades de fin de semana.

My Weekends

I love my weekends. On Saturdays, I start my day exercising. I get up very early and go for a bike ride for about one hour. After that, I take a shower and have breakfast with my family at home. Then, my mother and I go shopping for food at Plaza Vea. We spend there more than one hour. After shopping, we don't have time to cook, so we always go out to eat. In the afternoon, I like to be outside. I go for a walk with my girlfriend; and then we meet with some friends and go to the movies or go dancing. On Sundays, I sleep in. I get up at 11:00 and have just some fruit and yogurt for breakfast. After that, I mostly spend time with my family. We make lunch together and then have a big meal until around 5:00 p.m. In the evening, we go for a walk in the neighborhood or watch a movie at home. I think my weekends are always fun.
