Hi Everyone.

On a typical Saturday I'm quite keen on doing some gardening

Is it okay to use the phrase "to be keen on" in the above sentence? I found it written in the midst of some material for Brazilians EFL learners and I must confess that it strikes me as weird for "to be keen on something" as I see it, seems to be a feeling of some kind and I wouldn't say "I'm happy to do some gardening on a typical Saturday".

But then again, L1 may be preventing me from understanding the true meaning of it as it has happened myriad times before.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

    "I'm quite keen on doing some gardening" is fine (in the UK). It's a bit odd to have it prefaced by "On a typical Saturday," perhaps.
