Happy Homemaker Monday

Welcome to my regular Monday feature where I join Sandra and a few friends to share my plans for the week. 
Sandra provides a great photo to share and prompts to chat about.

The Weather
Looking for fall. Summer won’t let go.  Still in upper 90’s.  I we
get  some rain this week.

Right Now I Am
I am behind.   I’ve been spending all my spare time which isn’t much working on quilts to get sent to Houston. 

On My Reading Pile
My pile is so big.  I usually just share the one I am reading this week.
Crepe Factor
I am enjoying this one.

I Am Thankful For
Restaurants.  Sunday we stopped for lunch a great Chinese place.  It was nice to sit and relax after a week of cooking every night.

In The Garden
Pumpkin vine with no pumpkins.  What’s up with that?  I am not sure I’ll get a garden in.  Hopefully I can find some broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage at Walmart  to plant.

On the menu this week
A week of food from the freezer.  I am diligently trying to clean out the freezer of left overs and on sale purchases.  I try to be frugal but I overwhelm myself.

Planning on trying this recipe this week.  I don't make it often because I don't have a recipe and actually I don't think to do it!

I AM Inspired
My friend Debbie Dabble shared her Fall tree. 
It is so fun I was inspired to set up my Cabin tree for fall then change out the silks and ribbons to Christmas and add the Christmas ornaments. 
Very cool idea.  Thanks Debbie!

From the camera
A lovely book at a clients house.  I am fascinated with tea parties.
