Spring Bucket List 2022 UPDATED


“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest,
and cold and heat, and summer and winter,
and day and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22).

(Note: I am reprinting the list as originally written with pictures added, items completed crossed through, and notes in (parenthesis) and bold type.)

Winter is behind us and, here we are, in the earliest days of Spring 2022. Here in southwest Missouri we've had a few nice days, but most have been chilly, windy, cloudy, and/or wet. I look forward to warmer, nicer, and prettier days ahead! ๐ŸŒท 

What do you like about spring? What are you looking forward to about it? 

Here are a few of the things that I'm looking forward to, as well as, some of the things that hope to accomplish over the course of the season...

2. Plan my spring menus (these will be posted each Monday in my weekly Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday posts) ๐Ÿ“‡
3. Celebrate spring birthdays with the grandlittles ๐ŸŽ‚

(With as many grandchildren as I have...21 with another on the way...I forget that none of them officially have birthdays in the spring season. That is until now! You'll read more about that in just a bit.) 

4. Listen to spring peepers and learn the calls of other native species of Missouri frogs and toads ๐Ÿธ

(I actually got to go on a frog and toad survey at work this year for the first time. It was interesting and fun.)
