|Today I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom|
and all the sweet ladies of Happy Homemaking Monday!
I pray that this post finds each and every one of you healthy, happy, and serving the Lord with gladness! HAPPY SPRING! (Only one more day to go and it's official!!! Woo-hoo!) 🐣🌷🍓
Last week didn't go quite as planned. Our son-in-law's grandma took a turn for the worse and ended up in the hospital. It looked like he and our youngest daughter might not make it down for our St. Patrick's Day get-together at all, but, in the end, rather than come down and spend a couple of nights like they normally do, they managed to make it down just for the day...for which we were thankful. One day with them was better than not seeing them at all. We ended up with a houseful of family and friends with close to thirty in attendance. It was a fun day for everyone. Unfortunately, I didn't get a single picture! 😞 I'm hoping that I can talk someone into sharing with me that did. 😉
Let's get started on this week's post...shall we?
Right now I am...
Finishing up my breakfast while I work on this post.
On the breakfast plate...
Eggs, toast, and a steaming hot cup of Irish Breakfast tea
We had rain overnight, but the sun is shining this morning. It's 51 degrees at the moment with a high of 60 according to the forecast. Tomorrow looks cool (49 degrees), but, after that 60's and 70's all the way through the foreseeable 10-day.
On my reading pile...

In the craft basket...
I had some wheat straws left over from some Christmas ornaments that I made a couple of years ago, so last night I soaked them, then sat down and made a few St. Bridget's crosses with them.
I also ordered a new pair of pinking shears so I can start work on those sunflower seed shopping bags soon. 😊
Doing the preschool programs at the library and spring break programs at work...especially the one on black bears. The Missouri Department of Conservation loaned me a trunk that contains a real bear pelt, rubber footprints, rubber scat, reading books, stickers, pamphlets, and all kinds of other goodies in it. The children are going to love it! 🐻
|They did a prescribed burn Tuesday at Prairie State Park. This is the short, quarter-mile loop behind the nature center. You can see how the trail snakes it's way through the blacked and burned prairie.|

Well, Ladies, that's it for this week! I pray that each and every one of you have a blessed and beautiful week ahead!
Until Next Time...
