Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - January 23, 2023

It's Monday evening and I'm just now getting a chance to sit down and post. How was your week and weekend? My week and weekend here were good. I worked Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I saw this big guy on the way home Thursday evening.

Now here it is Monday. First thing this morning I discovered that one of the cats had knocked the plant that my grandson had given me for Christmas off the shelf and on to the floor, breaking the pot and scattering dirt and plant debris all over the place. I was so upset!

I had planned on going to town later in the week, but with snow is in the forecast for tomorrow and Wednesday, and, now, with needing a new pot and some dirt, I decided to go ahead and go today while it was nice. I'm glad I did. I accomplished quite a bit!

In addition to picking up the fresh items that I needed at the store, and getting the new pot and soil for the plant, I was able to get my tires rotated and balanced, wash my car, pick up stuff for upcoming birthdays and celebrations, and restock household cleaning supplies. I also purchased a new filing cabinet and a couple of clear totes to help with straightening and organization in the Van Gogh room. I enjoyed lunch at Subway and, after I got home, Silas came over and repotted the plant for me. 😊

I have more to share, but I'm running so far behind and still have much to do tonight. I'm going to go ahead and get started and, hopefully, will be able to share more later in the week. Let's get started...shall we?

  1. What is it with these cats? Mine knocked over my Christmas cactus recently. Maybe they have cabin fever? Glad you were able to get your plant repotted. Sounds like you got so much done as well yesterday. We're supposed to be on the north edge of the snow so they aren't really talking it up much around here, makes me kind of nervous since the opposite of what they say happens a lot. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Well, in a way, it's my fault. I forgot to put chili pepper on that particular plant. They haven't touched a single one of the others since I've peppered them. And, yes! It looks like the snow is coming! We're in the 2- to 5-inch band, but they're expecting up to a foot of snow just to our south and east. It should be interesting to see how it all plays out!Maybe I'll catch me some snowy-backed bison!!! :D Have a great Tuesday and I'll see you again soon! <3
