Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - February 26, 2024

This morning...

It's the last Tuesday in February and the weather is GORGEOUS! The sun is shining and a high of 78 is expected today; 82 tomorrow!


Not only do I have crocuses blooming in my yard, but bluets and spring beauties, as FEBRUARY! I've never had bluets and spring beauties blooming in February! That's crazy! Makes me wonder what kind of summer we're in for? 🤔

How was your week and weekend? Besides the day-to-day everyday-life things...home, family, work, etc...there was an out-of-town day trip, out-of-town company, and the starter on my van had to be replaced. Fortunately, I was only down a little over 24-hours...this time!!!

Amber took me to work Saturday morning; sil picked me up Saturday evening. When I got home my bil and a couple of grandsons were there working on my van; within an hour of my arrival, they had it up and running. What a surprise! 

This past week we lost a dear family member...the last of the older generations on my dad's side. Charlene wasn't my aunt (she was, actually, my cousin's aunt), but she felt like an aunt and I was closer to her than most of my aunts on that side.

Orval and Charlene and the boys were at our house a lot when I was growing up. In fact, the boys were like little brothers to me. When Amber came along, Charlene was always making clothes and other things for her.

Charlene often referred to me as her daughter. She was a dear and precious friend for sure, and she will be greatly missed. I love you, Charlene! 💗

This afternoon...

I just got home from riding up to Nevada with Angie. She was babysitting Cooper (my great-grandson), so I got to spend some time with him today, too, which is always a treat!

Anyway...I better get on with today's post, but it's so pretty outside! I don't know if I can stand to sit still and stay in that long! 😆 Let's get started, shall we?

  1. Monday we had a very nice day, which is not common for February in our area. It's too early for any spring blooms, but this weather could trigger some blossoms for sure. Sorry for your loss.

    1. Thanks, Kristina! The weather here has been up and down, but, overall, it's remained nice. Have had a couple of days near, or in, the 80's. My bridal's wreath is white with blossoms and I've noticed lots of daffodils and ornamental trees blooming out. We're supposed to get rain tonight, tomorrow, and Friday. I can't believe that the time change is this week! Have a great rest of the week!

  2. Hello! Enjoyed my visit with you here today. Your menu sounds delicious, by the way!
