Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - June 10, 2024

After a stormy, hot, and muggy weekend, it's a beautiful morning here in southwest Missouri! The sun is shining and, at the moment, we're sitting at a cool 68 degrees; a high of 79 is expected.

How was your week and weekend? Most of my week here centered around work. I was invited to present a program at the Golden City Public Library on Tuesday. It was the first time that I had presented at that location. There was a nice turnout and I really enjoyed it!

I worked from home on Wednesday and at the park on Friday and Saturday. 
Friday morning I presented a program on cicadas. The children had a great deal of fun learning about the life cycle of a cicada, about how to tell the difference between an annual cicada and a periodic cicada, about 2024's duel emergance of Broods XIX and XIII, making cicada notebooks to take home, and exploring the picnic area. It was a lot of fun!

Friday night we celebrated granddaughter, Kelly's, second birthday...

...and Saturday night Shawn and Dee invited me out to eat after work. Afterwards, we went for a drive and I showed them some of my favorite area places. It was nice getting out with old friends and extended family. I really enjoyed it!

  1. Your weather sort of sounds like ours. We too had a busy work weekend. We replanted tomatoes and fenced in one garden area. I have a lot to catch up on around the house though, and we are not done with our flower beds just yet. Have a nice week.

    1. The rains have stopped and it's turned off hot here. Hope you got the things done that you were hoping to and hope you're having a great weekend!
