Master To Do List and Menu Plan Monday - July 25, 2022

After a long and arduous week and weekend, here we are, back around to Monday. I pray that all is well with you and yours. 

Pollinator on Blazing Star

Please be in prayer for my family, especially Amanda and Buddy. Both have made several trips to ER this past week and Buddy has been hospitalized for nearly a week. Hopefully, he'll be released today on a pick line; he and his wife have a baby due tomorrow. Please pray health, healing, and protection over all three of them. 

Praise! We got a little bit of rain yesterday! Not enough to make a difference really, but it sure felt good when it was coming down. In fact, two of my little grandkids across the street came over and we played in the rain for a few minutes. It was very refreshing!

I think we've got three more days of triple-digit temperatures, then, we finally fall back into the 80's and 90's with lows in the 60's and 70's. Those 80-some degree days with nights in the 60's are going to be heavenly and the rain chances increase, too. Sadly, we have been upgraded to moderate drought conditions though and area farmers are in trouble.

My coneflowers and zinnias have pretty
much burned up this summer.

Everything is in trouble! As dry as it is there's going to be very little food produced on the farm or anywhere else this year. I have a feeling that food shortages will be commonplace and even the wildlife is going to suffer greatly this winter. Put up everything you can while you can, because it's liable to be a rough winter for everyone.

Well, I don't have a lot of time this morning, so I'm going to cut this post short and get on with it. Let's take a look at the week ahead, shall we?

This week's menu plan...

I'm not going to make a formal menu plan this week. I have quite a bit of fresh stuff on hand that needs eaten or worked up and put away, and a variety of odds and ends that need used up in the fridge and freezer. My goal is to focus on those things this week and, hopefully, have a plan for August in place by next week.

That's all for today. You have a nice day and a great week ahead!

Until next time...
