Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - February 19, 2024

After a cold weekend, it's turning out to be a beautiful Monday here on the tallgrass prairie of southwest Missouri...sunny and in the mid-50's. The rest of the week promises to be even nicer...60's and 70's every day with most days being sunny. I'm so looking forward to spring and it cannot get here soon enough to suit me! 🌷

I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day! I did here, but only because I chose to. When I felt the depression of celebrating another anniversary without my husband come lurking around, I shook it off and purposefully decided to enjoy the day anyway. 

I delivered Valentine goodies to the grands, bought myself flowers, was invited to supper at Patrick and Amber's (went, and enjoyed it!), and received sweet Valentines from some of the grands and one of the ladies in our Bible study group. It was a lovely day and I made it through without tears. Praise the Lord!

    1. Hey, Carrie! Yes, He does! And, yes, the bookmark is diamond art. One of my granddaughter's friends from Fort Rock made it for me. It was so sweet of her to think of me! Blessings, my friend! Spring is on the way!
