Happy Homemaker In Texas

The weather
We have had gorgeous sunny days for the last few days. 
A thunderstorm this morning but now the sun is out again.

Outside my window
A bed luring me to come out and till and plant some flower seeds

On the menu
No menu's for awhile since the Cowboy has diet restrictions and feels bad.  But I have these things ready to cook or reheat when he is ready . . . 
Smoked Salmon
A T-Bone and some filet mignon
Ground Beef 
For veggies I have the nicest potato's to bake, lovely spinach and romaine and ice berg,  and lot's of canned green beans.  

We'll see what we come up this week.  Come by during the 
week and see my On The Dinner Plate posts

In the craft room
I finally finished moving furniture around.  My space works 
alot better now.  It's not perfect but coming together.
For now the sewing machine is in the closet because I am only using it for small projects but that quilting bug is nibbling at me!

What I am working on 
Finishing up the Flower Theme Junk Journal.  Today I might be 

starting a real Junk Journal made from trash leftovers from projects and whatever I can find around the house to use. This was a perfect SWAP to do since I can't go out and buy more supplies.

What I am reading  What I just finished
Saving the Captain (Jackson Hole Firefighter Romance Book 5) by [Youngblood, Jennifer, Allen, Jewel]
Received from the author

On my TBR pile
No Filter (Barks & Beans Cafe Cozy Mystery Book 1) by [Gilbert, Heather Day]  Love and Protect (Heroes of Evers, TX Book 1) by [Ryan, Lori]  Hostile Pursuit (A Hard Core Justice Thriller Book 1) by [Rushdan, Juno]
These are on tour

A Special Moment
Lola had a Welcome Home Party this week.  She has been with 
us for a year now.  Just barely. We had some rocky roads but she 
has finally 'listened' to Domino and is following the rules.  
She has woven her way into our hearts. 
In the garden 
I have Cilantro growing like crazy but that is good it 
is prettier than weeds. 
I am working on my flower bed trying to get it read for 
new plantings I've added compost and new soil.
I planted some Zinnia seeds and I noticed when I went over 
to the bed I have two sprouts coming up from last year!
And, I have 3 Begonia's that I saved from last year. They
even survived a broken window in the green house that 
took out a few things.

My To Do List
Back muffins for breakfast
Back a couple batch of cookies
Cook Chicken for the week
Work in Garden 
Play with paper and glue

My Ta Da Moment
I finished moving furniture and getting my supplies back in 
place in my craft space. Now I can sit and read or crochet on the 
little 'So Ugly It's Pretty' little pull out couch.  And, I was 
able to sleep there last night.  Because of his illness the 
Cowboy is anemic and is always cold.  Thankfully the 
weather has warmed up now but it was so hot the last few nights
we really needed the ac but he was comfortable.  I thought 
I was in a swamp.  Last night I slept peacefully with the 
ceiling fan on.  It was a Blessing.
