Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - March 4, 2024

It's a warm and wildly windy morning here on the tallgrass prairie of southwest Missouri. We're sitting at 70 degrees right now with a high of 80 expected. I like it!!!

This past week was a week of great blessing! The weather was nice, spring flowers are bursting forth after their long winter's sleep, there were little unexpected surprises at every turn, and much was accomplished on several fronts...including being able to get the propane tank filled. 

On Tuesday part of the garage roof blew off, but within a short time of it happening a work crew made up of children, grandchildren, and a cousin had it back in place and secured. I really need to get out there and get things ready for major repairs though. I've virtually done nothing (including cleaning it out) since moving in after my dad passed away nearly eight years ago. I think it's time to get on it!

A sad note for our little community. Today starts the demolition process on a long-time icon and landmark...the Lipscomb elevator. I can hear the wrecking ball pounding against it now, even as I write this post. 

Liberal, Missouri

Things are sure going to be different once it's gone and it will change the entire landscape of our area forever. 😢

Well, I need to get busy. Let's get started with this week's post...shall we?

This week's master to-do list...

- Clean house
- Do laundry
- Wash bedding
- Clean inside of van, wash windows, and take to car wash
- Make a shopping list

  1. Hello! So glad you have had some springlike weather! And your menu sounds delicious. Have a cozy evening, my friend.

    1. Thanks, Billie Jo, and I'm sorry for the late response. I just discovered that I had messages to approve, but have not been receiving notices. Hmmm...wonder what's up with that! Thanks for stopping in and thanks for commenting! Blessings, Sweet Lady!

  2. I love the little jars with the buttons how fun!

    1. Those are among my favorites for sure! I always enjoyed looking at the jars and going through the buttons that they held as I was growing up; when my grandmother passed, my aunt gave the jars and their contents to me. Over the years I've added to the collections held within, but, mixed in amongst those many buttons are a whole host of pleasant memories! Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment. For some reason, I'm not getting notices and just now discovered it. Blessings!
