Happy Homemaker In Texas

Welcome to Happy Homemaker.  The post where I share a few plans for the week ahead.  And a little this and that. 
I link with Sandra
She provides prompts 
I add a few of my own
The weather 
It's a beautiful day here today.  Actually all our days are beautiful.  Spring time is Texas is just nice.  Our days are warm and sunny are highs are in the upper 80's.

Right now 
I am listening to the Cowboy get ready for work.  Domino is laying next to me.  I can hear the sounds of baseball games outside.
Cars parking and doors slamming as people arrive to watch the little ones play.

On the reading pile
Right now my pile is on my phone.  Every time I get a new offer I wonder just how much my phone will hold.  We are already scheduling into August.  Just a few include.
 Crazy Fox Ranch by [Garner, Deborah]
 Just finished this 5 star read last night.  This is a series but I jumped in at book 4 but it is easily a stand alone.  I loved it!
Good clean mystery!  

      The First Time at Firelight Falls: A Hellcat Canyon Novel by [Long, Julie Anne]
And I am reading this one now 
Till Death Do Us Tart: A Bakeshop Mystery by [Alexander, Ellie]

In the kitchen
Cheddar Onion Hash Brown Cups Recipe
I need to break my habit of stopping at McDonald's for breakfast.
I know ick!  I tend to drive through for a Dr. Pepper and a hash brown.  The good thing is 1 large with lite ice takes me through my
entire work day.  I am thinking positive here. LOL. 
I have been planning on eating a healthier breakfast.  This would be a better one than my normal.

Something fun to share
Teach my girls how to set a table for entertaining...Table Etiquette
Saw this on pinterest but there wasn't a link.  This brought back memories of taking Home Ec. in High School.  I don't think they 
even have Home Ec. anymore.  

In the craft basket
Two red,white,blue quilts for July 4th

Binding sewn on just need to do the hand sewing to finish it off.

A boy and his dog.  They were happy to see each other.  Duke
