Master List and Menu Monday - August 31, 2020

Greetings, Dear One! 💗

Can you believe it??? The last Monday of August and...just like a few hours we fall into September! 🍁🍂🍁 (And I'm so excited!!!) 🤭 How was your week and weekend?

Our week was good here...slower...more relaxed, I think, than the rest of the month has been.

A huge storm moved through on Saturday morning, bringing heavy rains and straight-line winds with it. A lot of damage was done locally and we were without electricity at the park for several hours; our son and daughter-in-law in Lamar were without until late in the day on Sunday.

The Approaching Storm

When the storm hit, the wind was so strong that we, physically, could not open the front door of the nature center against it and it was driving rain in around the front windows. I, personally, had never seen anything like it. It must have been what they call a derecho (an inland hurricane), but, whatever they end up labeling it as, it got pretty wild there for a while and left a lot of damage in it's path.

Sunday was quiet. John and I logged a couple of new geocaches in the afternoon, which is always fun, and it is...Monday again and time to go to work! 😊 

Let's take a look at this week's master to-do list and menu plan, shall we?
