Welcome to My Happy Homemaker Post
This party is hosted by Sandra. She provides prompts.
But I add a few of my own.
Pretty much the same. Rain, clouds some thunderstorms. We have had a lot of rain in the last few weeks. I have to make sure not leave standing water in pots because we are getting Mosquito's. Ick!
On my reading pile
Pretty much the same as last week. I am always adding to my pile.
I had the thought last week to see what I could find at my library to 'listen' to. I had a review offer on a book recently and I got the
Audible copy. I loved it!
Many of you know I review books. This one and all of the books by Lauren Carr are 5 stars. I am not really sure if we as reviewers are supposed to have favorites but I do! Don't tell. Check this one and all the others out!
What I am reading now
Am I the only one that recently found (introduced) to Laura Childs?
I love her cozy mysteries. The first one I read was from her
Tea Shop series. Glitter Bomb is a fun read. I already skipped to the end to read the recipes. Cajun Food. Yum. Yum.
On the t.v.
I am thinking
I am glad to be finished with mothers apartment and being able to be home today (Saturday) for the first time in 6 weeks.

The Fabulous Party-Fabulous Features
Did you know I host a party? You can link up your posts here
or over at My Holiday journey blog. Here are the ones that caught my eye last week . . .
Carol at Comfort Spring shared a great post. This one is well worth the read! Click here.
This is a great post about incorporating Art in a homeschool program. It is well written and very heart felt. I enjoyed reading it.
My 'Ta Da' moment
Yesterday we finally finished clearing/cleaning out Mothers apartment. I left the key in the mailbox. Went home breathed a sigh of relief after unloading the car and I put my feet up and poured a glass of wine! Done. Finally. Ta Da!
My 'To Do' list
Lots of things from Mothers to 'fit it'. I worked on sewing room today I need to work on the outdoor room/green house.
Mowing the grass
In the craft basket
I found some yellow yarn in Mother's things so I started these. But I found a problem with the pattern. Even had one of Mother's friends in TN. look at the pattern. I still plan to do them but need to figure out the mistake and work through it.
In the garden
Lots of new treasures from Mom. A hummingbird copper wind chime. A metal shelving unit for the green house. Three different
stand decorative trellis supports. Some adorable metal edging with birds on it. 3 nice pots she had her caladiums in.
Lots of plans for my new treasures!
From the camera
This one may look like the one I shared last week but it's not.
I took this one last night while I was sitting drinking that glass of wine. I managed to catch her sleeping. I cracked up when I noticed how the throw is scrunched up under her! She had a long hard week too!
I hope your week is wonderful!
