Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - March 27, 2023

Can you believe that it's the last week of March, and that, by the end of the week, we'll be into April? Where has the first-quarter of 2023 disappeared to?

How was your week and weekend? My week here was good (working around the place, cooking, cleaning, spending time with family and friends); the weekend full!

I worked Friday and Saturday. Friday we had a school group; Nature Bingo was on Saturday.

Saturday night I went with Patrick and Amber's family to watch the grands participate in a Bible trivia match. All five of the children did a great job and all five, along with their team members, out of eight positions, placed within the top four.

Silas's team took first place and Audrey and Mercy's team took a close second.

In fact, the two teams were tied for first, but, when the tie-breaking question was asked, Silas's team was just a split-second faster on the buzzer.

EvERYONE that participated in the event did a phenominal job!

Sunday was in the morning, then, company for lunch following. After that a nap, then a trip to Dollar General to pick up treats for the cats.
