Happy Homemaker in Texas

Welcome back.  I have been AWOL and hopefully this will be a 
better week for me.  Alot has been going that has distracted me from my normal posting.  Let's hope it's all behind me.  Hmmm. 
We'll see.  And no onto Happy Homemaking!

I add a few of my own.

The weather
Hot.  It is that time of the year in Texas.  But we had a really nice rain shower after a very heavy storm on Thursday.  Trees down in the neighborhood.  My garden loved the nice rain!  
Today it is 85 now and mostly sunny.  
Creeping into the triple digits for the week ahead clouds and no rain

I am thinking
That I have missed posting.  I missed writing and visiting other blogs. 

Right now I am 
Enjoying a peaceful Saturday.  Except for the sound of the washer going all is peaceful. 

On my breakfast plate
If I can make it till I am done writing this post.  Pancakes with
Cranberries.  I might not get this post done till noon.  HeHe.

On my reading pile
I have been slowing down a little just too busy to read. 
Here's a couple I'll be reading this week.

To be read next week 

And one I can not wait to read
Read all about Murder by Perfection at the Thorny Rose page!

Sandra's prompt  On my T.V.
I watch very little t.v.  What are you watching?

This seems to be harder and harder for me to do.  But so necessary!

My Ta Da moment
I made it through the week!

In the craft basket
What's that?  I miss crafting.  I did see this really sweet 
angel quilt I have started peeking at me.  Maybe I could work on it a bit.  Who knows maybe we will be having a new baby in the family soon!

A fun moment this week

Free Slurpee's and $1.00 hot dogs on 7/11 day.

In the garden
Any idea what this plant is?
I took a clipping from a pretty bushey looking plant at a clients.
The flowers when opened look like Cosmos.  When closed they look like a small Rose bud.  I hope it will root.
