Master List and Menu Plan Monday - May 9, 2021

Greetings, Dear One! It's Monday! 💗

How are you? How was your weekend? I trust that you had a great week and a beautiful Mother's Day Weekend! 💐 

Most of the week here was spent just being with my husband...sitting together...sometimes outside when weather permitted...talking, watching the Rifleman, Victory News, or some other teaching program, praying, reading God's Word, and taking communion together each night before bed...trusting and believing Jesus for health and healing in every area.

I did get my eyes examined this week and can't wait until my new glasses arrive. I'm hoping that they make a big difference in how and what I'm seeing. 👀

I also picked up a work-from-home project from work (data entry on a vegetation plot) and will be working on that a few hours here and there as I can. I'm thankful for the opportunity to keep a paycheck coming in no matter how small it is.

I got a few things planted in the garden this week...tomatoes, peppers, onions, green beans, beets, squash (white scalloped and spaghetti), and pie pumpkins. There are more things that I hope to get planted...more to have something for John to watch grow than anything else. He has always loved gardening so. 🌱

Our oldest granddaughter graduated from nursing school on Saturday. Due to COVID and John's health we weren't able to be there, but her mom made sure we got plenty of pictures. We're so proud of her and know that she's going to make a great nurse! 🎓

I had a lovely Mother's Day here with sweet offerings and lots of love from each of our children. My heart is full as I realize how incredibly blessed we truly are. 💓 

I'm hoping to get myself pulled together this week and get busy on some projects here around the house. Our youngest daughter will be in Wednesday to spend time with her dad and the hospice nurse will make her weekly visit on Wednesday, as well. Other than that, we have nothing planned. Days of late are long; the nights are even longer. Like I said...I've got to get myself pulled together and get busy! 

This week's master to-do list...

- spend time with my husband 💕
- clean house 🏡
- deep clean bedroom 💤
- do laundry 👕
- order propane 🚚
- sort and organize books, CDs, and DVDs in Van Gogh room 📚
- work from home 💻
- pick up new glasses (if they come in this week) 🕶

This week's menu plan...

Monday - Chicken ranch salad with homemade bread 🐔
Tuesday - Broiled salmon, baked potatoes, and oven-roasted carrots 🐟
Wednesday - Beef enchiladas with rice and beans 🐄
Thursday - Ham, green beans, and potatoes with biscuits 🐖
Friday - Tuna and noodles with peas 🐟

That's it for this time, Ladies! Have a great week ahead! 

Until next time...

    1. Thanks, Lisa! I might have jumped the gun on the garden. It's turned off cool again. Am hoping that it doesn't stunt my tomatoes and peppers. Have a great week ahead and thanks for stopping in. Blessings! <3

  2. Congratulations to your granddaughter! We've got a few things planted in our garden as well, we put the tomatoes in last week. I'd still like to add a few more things, pie pumpkins sound fun. Still praying for your husband (and you!). Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Thanks, Jean! We're sure proud of her! Yes, I've got more that I want to get in, too, but it's so wet right now that there's no way. My pie pumpkins are up and I can't wait to see what they produce. I would love to have a regular pumpkin patch! Thanks for the prayers. They are much appreciated! Hope your week is off to a great start! <3
