Happy Homemaker in Texas

Welcome to my weekly Happy Homemaker post.  Normally I post on Saturday but life got in the way.  I was working on my mom's apartment all day yesterday!  And so no posting.
So Welcome to the Sunday edition!

Each week I join Sandra she provides the prompts
but I add some of my own!
The weather
Ditto from last week.  It's August September in Texas.  That means hot.  And no rain.  

On my reading pile
Did you see my review last week of Fit To Be Tied by Debby Mann?  It was a great read.  You might like it.  
Fit to Be Tied My review is over here
A few Cozy Mysteries are on my stack for the next few weeks.
I can't take a nice picture of a stack because these are all on my phone or Kindle.  I miss print copies.

What's on your t.v.?
We rarely turn ours on anymore.  At least lately.  
So I was wondering what your watching?

I am thinking
I miss(ed) my summer garden.  (it died) I hope to have 
some success in the next couple months.

 Something fun to share
I missed joining this.  But I am visiting maybe I'll get some ideas.
You can find it over at Mrs. Olson's.  Click here.

Boiled yellow squash (for me)

My Ta Da moment
I found and brought home a stick vac from my mothers apartment.
I cleaned our baseboards!  It's a cool little vac!  Love it!

Craft Basket plans
Crochet Christmas Tree
These are soooo cute.  I want to make a garland to hang on the hutch.  I display a collection of small Christmas Trees on top.
