Happy Homemaker In Texas

Welcome to Happy Homemaker.  I normally post on Saturday  but I took a day off the computer because I had a book I had to finish.
So today I am back on Monday

I add a few prompts of my own
Here's a look at my plans for the week and a peak at last week

The weather 
It's creeping up to the upper 90's almost at the triple digits. 
We did get a good rain shower last Thursday so that helped the 
garden.  No more rain in sight till next Sunday.  I hope we get some!

Right now I am 
I am being watched . . . 

She's thinking 'Mom you need to dust this chair.'
I am thinking what is up with the watermark.  I had the hardest time getting this pic to upload.  Finally tweeted it and snatched it from twitter.  Ain't technology grand!

On the breakfast plate
I am trying to do better with breakfast.  Today I will scramble an egg before work. 

On my reading pile

This one is still on my pile.  I have a print copy.  I hope to get to it this week.

I put the Pic Monkey app on my phone.  I used to use it to apply text to my pics but my computer stopped letting me do it. So now
I can do it and make some editing changes to my pics again!  Dawng I wish you can erase the dust of the pics!
Image result for pic collage app
I also added Pic Collage now I can make some cool collages again. 
Both of these are free and easy to use! See below!

In the garden 
My Ta Da Moment
Realizing that there were probably the above mentioned apps for use on my phone.  Maybe it was really more of a 'Duh' moment!

In the craft basket
I finally figured out how to quilt my Black Cats quilt.
I have my pumpkin patch quilt ready to quilt also. 
Maybe this week I'll get the sewing machine out!  I need to get them quilted so I can bind them which is my least favorite part!
