Happy Homemaker in Texas

Welcome to my Saturday 
Happy Homemaker Post
The party is at Sandra's on 
Mondays.  I post on Saturday to free up my Monday's for other things.
Sandra provides the prompts.  But I add a few of my own. 

The weather today on Saturday it is really cloudy and dark.  Lots of rain expected today.  But normally this time of year is just beautiful.  The rain leads up to this 

Outside my window the rain is beginning to come down.  I hear a honking horn.  There is a football game going on or was going on across the street.  No the parents and players are scrambling for their cars.  

Right now I am thinking I enjoy the rain but wish it didn't happen on Saturdays.  Lately Saturday is the only day I have to do errands.
I had a huge list for today that might not get done.  We'll see.

In the garden I actually have little tiny broccoli heads on my plants.  I have never grown broccoli before! 
 I have green tomatoes my son is jealous.  They can't even start planing yet in Missouri.  That's why I called it Misery when I lived there! My hyacinth's and crocus are done but my Snap Dragons are hanging on.   Lettuce is showing off and ready for a nice salad!  

On the to do list
Buy pepper and cucumber plants because I haven't planted any seed yet.  Still trying to get that area tilled.
Plant another row of carrots and white radishes.
Plant squash
And this is the big thing finish a couple of quilts for the wedding. 
They will cover hay bales for the seating.  #ATexasWedding
