Happy Homemaker Monday


The weather... here in Texas we always have beautiful springs. 
Sometimes the beautiful spring temps last well into the summer. 
Hopefully this year will be one of those.  
This week we have beautiful days from the 50's rising to mid to high 70's.  Rain on Wed. and Thurs.  just enough to keep everything well watered.  And cool enough to enjoy the out doors.

The view from my window...I took a couple of  snaps to share the lovely view I have from my desk.  
 :    :
The view from my desk and the front door.  I walk up to this lovely view everyday.   The photo's don't do justice.  This bush is covered in blooms.  They open up into lovely yellow roses after a few days the blooms turn white.  I have never seen this kind of rose bush.  It is so easy to take care of.  I want more!

On my reading pile...

And on the Kindle  :

A Simple Pleasure...
English library:
I dream of a room filled with books.  I have a pinterest board over here.

Looking Around The House...
Spring is in the air.  The windows are open and my decorating has begun.  A little slow trying to figure out how to decorate this space for my first spring here. 

From the camera...
A rabbit waiting for it's journey to Missouri to live with our grand daughter.  I need to add trip to post office on my to do list!
