Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - May 30, 2022

Good morning! I trust that you and yours are enjoying a lovely holiday weekend and that your Monday is off to a great start! Happy Memorial Day💓☆💙

Memorial Day Parade

The past week has been busy, but full of family and fun. The first part of the week was spent working around the place. I worked Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday evening, daughter-in-law, Nicole, went into labor. After a long night at the hospital, labor was stopped and Nicole was sent home. They're hoping the baby stays put for, at least, another week. 

Thursday morning daughter-in-law, Angie, rode to town with me. We had lunch together and went grocery shopping. Thursday evening daughter, Amanda, and her girls came down. Amanda was only able to stay one night, but the girls are still here.

Friday we went to the state park. We walked the picnic and campground area and played in the water at the low-water bridge.

After we got home, we built a fire and watched the sun go down. The girls started nature journals and we played several games of Splendor. We also managed to burn up a tiki-torch! It was blazing, but not where it should have been! LOL! 😅

Saturday morning I took the girls geocaching, but their experience was not a good one. I'm hoping to take them again before the weekend is over to an area where they might have a better chance of enjoying it. We will see.

Saturday evening we had supper at Patrick and Amber's. The girls spent Saturday night there and went to church with Patrick and Amber and their family Sunday morning. They played with their cousins in the afternoon and were back at my house for the night last night. Before dark we ran out to the park to look for bison (which we found) and enjoy a prairie sunset.

Now, we're getting ready to relax and enjoy the holiday with family and friends. It is the first time in 34 years that I've celebrated Memorial Day, and remembered the many that have fought for, bled for, and died for our country, without my husband. I pray alone now for those that serve today and for those in leadership that they would wake up and remember the high price that has been paid.
