Happy Homemaker In Texas


The weather . . . 

Gorgeous Fall weather. Upper 70's.  Lot's sunny skies!

Outside my window . . . 

Sunny skies. Dogs playing in the yard.  Happy gardens.  And on my window . . .

  I really dislike these tree lizards!  But I know they eat bugs.

On the breakfast plate . . . 

The Cowboy microwaved a safe and a tortilla.  Errands in a bit so no real breakfast plate today.

What I am wearing . . . 

The pants I garden in.  It is warm enough for shorts but I will be mowing some leaves in a bit.

Something fun to share . . . 

Looking for Louisiana bloggers to guest post in December.  I will be featuring a Cozy Mystery set in Louisiana.  Send me an email if you live/blog about Louisiana.

In the studio . . . 

I have finished two crochet dishcloths from two different patterns. 

Still searching for a pattern.

Almost finished with a flannel rag quilt for the coach for the Cowboy.  

Long enough to cover him nicely I think.  Just need to fringe the edge.  But he can start using it.😁❤️

And I dyed some papers for the Journals I am making for Christmas presents. 

These are ready to iron so they will flatten and smooth out.

On the menu . . .

I am feeling in that proverbial rut again.  Need some ideas!


Mexican Style Pot Roast, Ranch Style Beans, Spanish Rice & Tortilla's


Pulled Pork topped Baked Potatoes, Salad, Cheddar  Bacon Biscuits


White Chicken Chili & Corn Bread


Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Corn


Coconut Shrimp, French Fries, Cole Slaw

I was able to talk over the menu with Cowboy he made a couple suggestions.

On the To Do List . . . 

Vacuum and mop.

Buy some Cauliflower plants.

Clean the laundry room.

Make a "Party Link" for the blog.

My Ta Da' moment . . . 

I did finished the couch quilt for the Cowboy.  'Ta Da'!

I just finished reading . . .

I enjoyed this one. A Sweet Clean Romance.  New author to me.  I enjoyed meeting and chatting and planning my Main Character Monday post.

From the camera . . . 

Praying for . . . 

Our country.

Scripture/Devo . . .

What a cute picture! I love the quilt - looks so comfortable to curl up with. I've tried several dishcloth patterns, but keep going back to the one with the more solid pattern as it actually works best. I hope you have a GREAT week.

That verse is one of my all time favorites! I hope you have a beautiful week!

Sandra said...

Love your doggy, looks so much like my Marley :)

Your menu sounds really yummy for this week, especially that Coconut Shrimp, my fave.

Hope you have a blessed week!

I have been feeling pretty unmotivated to cook dinner lately; I too feel stuck for ideas. I mean I have lots of ideas but I try to make sure at least 3 of the 5 people in the house will eat it!

That lizard looks a bit larger than the ones I'm used to. I like watching the small ones run around the kitchen window eating bugs though.

I love your dish clothes. I always get so bored making them, I'm weird I know so have to get others to do it, like my mom. We trade I make other things for her and she makes my dishcloths and towels.

White chicken chili sounds good. I wasn't sure what we were doing this week but I may have to add that to the list. It's one of our go-to favorites.

Hope you have a blessed week.

Your dishcloths are such a pretty color. Hope you have a wonderful week!

We don't have lizards here but saw the tree lizards in Florida, they were cute. Wish my husband would give me ideas about supper... sometimes I just don't know anymore!
Have a great week
