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. 
The late post. I started this at 9 a.m. it is now 3:38 my computer has been shutting down all day.  

I link with Sandra 
.She provides prompts.  I add a few of my own.

The weather
It starts out gorgeous but this past week it was a bit hot.  We are already into the 90's.  I sure hope it is a short spell and we get 
a little more Spring.  I love Spring Do you?

Right now
I am listening to birds singing.  A peaceful morning no baseball
today; and I am eating pancakes from McDonalds.  We were
out of dog food and laundry soap so I had to run out to shop.

On the reading pile
Last week I mentioned Crazy Fox Ranch.  I finished it and loved it!
This one came in the mail.  Not really sure where it came from.
Maybe the publisher.  I'll have to search emails to find out.  
Books like this without actual tours I don't put on my calendar because I have 30 days from when I receive them.

And on my phone...
 reading now.  Some of the covers are so cute.
The cat lives in the library.  I was interested in reading it because it is located in North Carolina.  The Carolina's and Georgia are on my list to see when we start traveling. 

And a few more I just can't wait to start reading . . .

It was precious to me
A new prompt because it was just precious and I wanted to share.
Sorry I didn't get a pic.  Hopefully a story will do.  
Thursday our grandson was here.  I asked him to check the mail as I was busy in the kitchen and he loves helping.  He's always asking for something to help me with.  He returned smiling with a package (large envelope).  And he said 'Gigi you have papers!  I was taken back a little and asked him how he knew it was papers.  He smiled and said because it is from Canada and your papers come from all over the world!  I was surprised that he picked up on that it was from Canada because books come in the same types of envelopes!  It was precious to me!

In the craft basket
I am collecting some new crochet patterns.  Planning on doing alot 
while on the road.  When we are traveling I won't be able to be sewing.  Visit my pinterest board to see the patterns I hope to try.
Elephant edging has got to be the most unique pattern of edging of all. This pattern will be perfect for the border of any baby cover but can be also used as a decorative motif in children’s wardrobe. Elephant Edging Border – Video Tutorial and pattern #freecrochetpattern #freecrochet #crochet3 #easycrochet #patterncrochet #crochettricks #crochetitems #crocheton #thingstocrochet
This one I want to try as soon as I can get to Hobby Lobby for 
yarn.  Click here.

On the To Do List
Post office run-letter to mail for Pen Friend, Papers to mail for paper swap and a box to my DIL
Finish cleaning up my pins/boards
Finish  deleting things off computer
More talks/discussion on the move
Make more decisions on what we keep and take,give,sell

My Ta Da moment
Can't really share it yet.  It has to do with the move/lifestyle change. Cowboy had made a suggestion that I was not comfortable with. I've been praying about it.  And the other night clarification came and now a weight is lifted and I am super excited even more than before.  But I am impatient!

Not sure if these little sprouts are Bachelor's Buttons or maybe some stray Zinnia.  Look in the foreground on the left.  Anyone 
know what this pretty thing is?  It just sprouted up!
