Happy Homemaker In Texas

 Welcome to Happy Homemaker in Texas 


 I join Sandra at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom for the party.  Sandra provides the prompts.  I add a few of my own. 

The weather . . . It turned hot again the last few days.  

On the breakfast plate . . .

Skipping the plate this morning.  Spent last night on E.R. at What A Burger at 2 a.m never done that before. Isn't what you do when you party all night.  Apparently the drive thru was full!

2:00 seems to be our eating time. LOL. 

 I made Blueberry Muffins and Bisquick Biscuits.  The Cowboy ate 1 of was. After a plate of Tuna Salad which was L/O from yesterday.  He ate a nice Sandwich at 2:00 before going to the Dr.

Hmm 2:00.

 Outside my window . . . 

I started my post on my phone last night at the E.R. watching people come in and out.

Today Saturday  I am moving around the house my view is mostly the backyard and the dogs.

I spent sometime outside in the shade over by the Zinnia
Lola is always busy looking for critters!

I am reading now . . .

This one didn't keep my interest in the E.R. so I switched to this one . . . .
I love Cowboy stories.  Sophia Summers is a favorite author.

On my reading pile . . .  

I need to get busy on these!

Lots of book tours right now. My calendar is full

On the menu

Monday . . . Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes and Okra

Tuesday . . .  Kielbasa, Fried Potatoes, Cabbage . . . I'll be making Gumbo out of L/O for later in the week by

Wednesday . . .  Stew from L/O Sunday Roast.  Stew from L/I is 

An easy meal so I'll be making Gumbo for later in the week.  It is always better if it sits a day or so. 

Thursday . . . National Pizza Month Plain Cheese for The Cowboy and Mushroom Italian Sausage for me. Homemade trying the dough from Kroger deli

Friday . . .Gumbo and Sea Food Boil been trying to do this for weeks!

In the studio . . . 

Finished repairing my Daughter's quilt.

Making Fabric Tassels and Scarecrow theme Junk Journal page for a SWAP

I made this one large because I wanted the little birdie to show and I wanted to use these big orange beads I have been hoarding . . .
I love these beads and I think they will be perfect for this tassel!

In the garden . . . 

Fall planting under way.

I hope to get a few more plants this week since we get paid

The Cabbage is doing great. Much better than in the Spring.

The Broccoli is struggling but persevering.  It know has a nice Shabby Chic look.  My garden is in Full sun most of the day since we list the tree last Fall.

I do have a new plan to hopefully help shade the are where the Broccoli is now.

Look at these Green Beans!  I wish I had put more in.  We go through a lot of Green Beans.  

Now that I have a tiller, a compost bin and a little more money to spend I think next Spring/Summer growing Season will be Bountiful.  At least I am hoping!

My Ta Da moment . . . 

It is a work in progress but I got most of my Refrigerator cleaned out. All Science Projects are gone!  Not adding an LOL...this really isn't a laughing matter.  Everyone I open my fridge I cringe and hear À voices yelling at me!  Gordon Ramsay and Robert Irvine would be appalled!

I would so hate to disappoint them and have them Yell at me!


My 'To Do' List

Bake cookies

Make food/snack bag for hospital stays.  We had to go to E.R. Friday night and the Cowboy found a vending machine! Busted the Bank!

Make to Go Bag for clothes.

Buy extra Kindle and phone chargers and an extension cord.  For 'Go' bags

Grocery Shop this week. I do major once a month now since we get paid once a month.

Make dry mix for cookies for faster baking and avoid store bought.

To relax/Get Cowboy motivated

Plan an outing every other day . . . 

Take grandson to 5 Below and Half Price Books to make him a Go Bag for when the new baby comes.

Go to Marina and watch boats maybe eat lunch.

Go to dog park and check it out.

Maybe go to Library

Great books you're reading, they look like the type I would enjoy.
