Happy Homemaker in Texas

Welcome to Happy Homemaker.  I normally try to post on Saturday but the last two weeks have been crazy with lots to do! Back today posting and linking with Sandra on Monday

Sandra provides the prompts but I add a few of my own

The weather
It's summer in Texas.  A great time to stay in under the AC or the pool or lake!  
It's upper 70's in the morning and creeping to 100+.  97 and clouds predicted for the 4th.

Right now I 
have too much on my mind.  Trying to get my mother to come for the 4th and ultimately move in with us.  It's a one step at a time process that will take a lot of prayer and a little bit of caginess.

Outside my window
Sadness.  A bug is eating my Canna's!  Gonna have to go spray again.   And it's relative worked over a couple of tomato plants!

On my reading pile

The 'To Do' List
Finishing getting room ready for my mother
Clean for the 4th
Clean fridge 
Cook for the 4th
Grocery shop for the 4th and get things for my mother
Rest and Relax on Saturday!

In the kitchen
Still need to make the Hamburger Soup I mentioned last week.
My mother will really like it so need to cook on Tuesday to have ready. 

On the menu
I am guessing any planning at least again for this week is not going to happen!  Too much going on.  I am kind of flying by the seat of my pants right now. 

In the garden
Gorgeous Zinnia', Mum's. I still have a couple Pansy's that are shaded and a couple Snap Dragons.  The Tomato's and Peppers are hanging on and the Cucumbers are blooming.

In the craft basket
Nothing new for now. Taking a break till I get things arranged 
for mom. 

Fabulous Party Features

Brenda shared her Thrift Store haul.  Wow she really it it big.
Check out her haul over here at her blog. 
Rebekah over at Ready to Be Offered shared a great post titled
Lessons From The Garden.  This was a great read.  I hope you will go over here and visit. 

From the camera
He cracks me up...Sometimes the 'ham' sometimes the GiGi put the stinking phone away!  I never know what I'll get!

Please pray for us and my mother. She is 98 and clearly cannot 
continue to live alone.  We are praying she will 'give in' and come and live with us.
