The Weather
 Same as last week.  I had one word last week.  Hot this week I am adding another word Humid. The Cowboy is already counting down the days till cooler weather.  We've had some good rain showers.  The plants are loving it!

Right Now I  Am
 Thinking about my week.  Cooler weather. Gardening plans.
Wishing it was a little dryer to be out working in the garden. 

On My Reading Pile
 I always have so much to read that I've decided to choose one to share with you here each week.  The one I am looking the most forward to read.  In another post I'll share What's on my Reading Pile.  Today I am just itching to read . . .

I am thankful for
 The Cowboys job.  After 10 months he is back to making the salary he was prior to loosing his job last Sept. just a couple of weeks before we moved into our house.  
We were talking last night and we were both thanking God for his provision for us.  He was telling me last night that on Tuesday when he was paying bills he wrote out a tithe.  We also are able to choose a charity to make a donation.  We are thankful.

In the garden
 Weeds. Rocks. But it's getting better.  I have fall green beans planted and pumpkins.  On Saturday I prepped the area to plant beets and more green beans.  

On the menu this week
 Monday -- Mexican Chicken/Rice, Salad, Pinto Bean Soup
Tuesday -- Tuna Casserole w/peas, Salad
Wednesday -- Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes, Grean Beans
Thursday -- Kid Friendly Hot Dogs, Mac/cheese 
Friday -- Shrimp Alfredo, Broccolli/Cauliflower, Salad, Garlic Bread

Cooking a little different now a days.  The Cowboys mother is in recovering and needs encouragement to eat.  So I take her and my mother leftovers a couple days a week. 

In the kitchen
birthday cake bread with crumb topping
I am thinking this looks yummy and easy.  It's called Birthday Cake Bread I am wondering if it is really cakey or more like bread.  The recipe is over here

And this my friend Carol linked at the party.  Sound so yummy it's on my menu for this week!
