Good morning! Happy Monday! And Happy President's Day! 💗🤍💙

How was your week and weekend? My week here was good. I finally made it through the last tote of stuff that was in the house (mostly Mom and Dad's stuff) and have the solar room, sunroom, and livingroom done. Now I'll be moving back into the Van Gogh room to start the process of fine-tuning what's left. I've got books to sort, program tubs that need reorganized, and a variety of things that just need put away now. Little by little I'm getting there. This has been a huge project, but one that has needed done for many years. I'm thankful to have finally had the time, opportunity, and the ability to focus to do it justice. My next project will be to deep-clean the entire house room by room and thin things out even more.

I met a friend for lunch on Wednesday and we had a good visit. Before meeting with her, I got new wiper blades put on my car and, afterwards, I ran out to work to receive training on our new RS2 system.

Friday night I joined my friend, Mary, for supper at Tractor's BBQ and Grill in Lamar. We stopped by Walmart on the way back and enjoyed a great visit.

I worked on Saturday. I had bison coming, going, and even in between. I saw them on the west side of the park on my way in...

"Betcha can't see me now!"

...they came past the nature center around 10:30 a.m...

...and, then, I saw them on the south end of the park on my way home...

It was great!!! It's been twenty-six years since first discovering the bison at Prairie State Park, going on eight years of working with them, and I never ever get tired of seeing them!

Creek @ the Low-Water Bridge on Saturday

It's a beautiful Monday here in southwest Missouri. At the moment, it's mostly sunny, windy, and 56 degrees, but a high of 72 is expected. After that, we go back in the deep-freeze. Tuesday is supposed to be cold and rainy. Then, another snowstorm is expected mid-week. I plan to enjoy today while we've got it! 

Okay...that's enough rambling for today! Let's get started on this week's post...shall we?
