Menu Plan Monday

Good Monday morning to everyone!  Time sure is flying by here since we are well into April already and there is so much that I want to do in the coming weeks before the weather gets way too hot.  There just never seems to be enough time with these perfect temperatures to get everything done outside that I would like. 

Even though Saturday was C’s birthday, we took care of a few chores around the house and nearby.  My dad, aunt, and Nanny came down so we could rake and seed Mom’s grave before it got to hot to sow grass.  It is hard to believe that Mom will be gone a year on Tuesday.  Sometimes it seems like I just saw her yesterday and sometimes it feels like she has been gone for years.  I miss her just as much now as I did a year ago and I so wish I could talk to her here on this earth again.  I am so thankful that when my time comes (hopefully about 100 years from now) that we will meet again in heaven and be together for eternity.

I also thinned my strawberry bed Saturday.  Nanny and Dad both wanted a few strawberry plants for pots and I told them I could give them a few, thinking that I should have about 5 or 6 extra.  Boy, was I wrong!!  I hadn’t cleaned the bed in 2 years so there was a bunch of runners that had rooted.  When I got done, I had moved 22 plants down the wall for us and had 16 for Nanny and Dad.  That’s not counting the original 25 that I planted two years ago that are still there.  I had 38 extra plants!!! 

The only chore that I had planned on doing that I did not have time for was to seed a few bare spots in our front yard, so I plan on taking care of that one day this week after work.  That is why I have a couple of easy meal nights this week.  I just hope the weather cooperates.

We also cheered on the University of Kentucky Wildcat men’s basketball team as they played in the Final Four.  Alas, they fell to the University of Connecticut, but they put up a good fight until the end.  Just wait until next year!!
