Master List and Menu Planning Monday - October 26, 2020

Good morning, Everyone!

It's the last Monday of October and, suddenly, the holiday season is upon us! Can you believe it???? Where in the world has 2020 gone???? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ 

Not that I won't be glad when it's over, mind you. We praise God for His mercy, grace, and many blessings, but in some ways 2020 will certainly be remembered as the worst year ever. Despite how things look right now, though, I pray that 2021 brings healing to our nation and that, before we know it, COVID-19 will be a thing of the past.

So how was your week and weekend? Our week here was non-stop.

Lamar City Park - Lamar, Missouri

Lamar City Park - Lamar, Missouri

Some of the highlights include the bison auction at work, going shopping with my husband on Friday (which included a walk in the park), and watching the presidential debate and pre-election coverage on America Stands

Bison Auction @ Prairie State Park on Tuesday

Now, here it is, Monday morning and it's almost time to leave for work. It's raining to beat the band, which we desperately need, but it's snowing to the north of us and we're supposed to be in the freezing rain, sleet, and snow before the day is over. On the 26th of October? Really? Wow! That's super early for us! What's the weather like where you're at?

I do hope you have a blessed day and a great week ahead! I'll be with you again as soon as possible! Let's get started on this week's post...shall we? ๐Ÿงก

Good morning, Everyone!

I trust that your week and weekend were good and that your Monday is off to a great start! 

Our weekend here was GREAT! We enjoyed a fun weekend getaway to a nearby lake.


Stockton Lake
Located @ Stockton, MO

We, along with our daughter, son-in-law, and their children, rented a lovely cabin on Stockton Lake and were joined by our son-in-law's parents, who happen to be dear friends that we have known for over thirty years.



The weather was perfect and we jammed a lot of fun into just a few short days!



Fishing


Hiking and Getting Out Into Nature


Geocaching


Just Relaxing By The Fire

Since it's Monday, and I'm headed for work soon, I will share a few more photos, then, move right on into today's post.
