Menu Plan Monday 2/1/2016

Welcome to the first February edition of menu plan Monday for the year! I hope you all had a good week. Here, the highlight for me was accompanying four students in ISSMA instrumental contest Saturday. This was way fewer kids than I normally play for, but it was a relaxed day and I thoroughly enjoyed […]

Post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. I am happy to let you know that we’ve reached the final Monday in January. We are conquering winter, one week at a time — at least, that’s how I feel. And while I feel bad for those on the East Coast dealing with all that […]

So, I know it’s a little odd to start off Menu Plan Monday with a photo from a greenhouse. But, Saturday was the January meeting of the bonsai club that daughter #3 and I belong to. That meeting is always at the huge local greenhouse that houses plants for the botanical gardens, zoo, etc. It […]

Welcome to what feels like a very wintry Menu Plan Monday! We got an inch or two of snow yesterday, plus wind, ice, and falling temperatures that brought an abrupt end to a long mild stretch. I was glad that my oldest daughter, who returned to college Saturday after Christmas break, got some snow there […]

Happy Menu Plan Monday! How is your December going? Hopefully well; mine is enjoyable so far. My piano recital/party was Saturday, and 15 of the 17 students were able to attend. I really enjoy this each year. The kids have a lot of fun with it, too. They each play 2 pieces, then we have […]

The second menu plan week of December has arrived. I hope your Christmas preparations are in full swing and that you’re enjoying them. Saturday night I played for the Christmas cantata at the church where I play organ (one advantage of playing is that you can sneak away during an acapella part to take a […]

Thanksgiving is over, and I hope each of yours was enjoyable. Now Christmas is just 4 weeks away. There is lots to fit into those weeks, but thankfully most of it is fun stuff. I worked on Christmas decorating over the weekend and got most of it done. How about you? Here is the week’s […]
