Welcome to Happy Homemaker in Texas

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.
Outside my window . . .

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.

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!
