Happy Homemaker in Texas


Good Morning.  Welcome to a beautiful day in the blog world!

Today is my weekly party.  It is hosted by Sandra.  She provides prompts.  

I add a few of my own . . .

The weather . . . 

Gorgeous Island life.  Upper 80's.  It is hot and stiill and a little humid.  But there is always a breeze by the water. 

On the breakfast plate . . . 

I fried 2 Eggs and some Turkey Little Smokies we found on sale at WalMart.  

The Cowboy is back to eating very little.

I really think it is because of medications. 

I am wearing . . .  

The same 'ole thing.  Shorts and a worn out T.  But!  I got new Sparkly flip flops! 

Actually I guess they are not really flip flops.  I forget what they are called. Super cheap though
 $ 9.00 with 40 percent off!

On my reading pile . . . 

To Do List . . . 

Places to see this week ... 

Dessert options on the island continue to get sweeter. ShyKatZ Deli & Bakery is an East End cafe serving baked goods, breakfast and lunch.

ShyKatZ Deli & Bakery serves breakfast all day, “Blue Plate Specials,” and features Boars Head meats and cheeses. Their bakery serves fresh baked cakes and breads daily.

The women are using old family recipes and hope to create a place where everyone knows everyone’s name.

ShyKatZ also serves up such fare as burgers and gourmet salads. 

And a Spice Shop and Deli ...

Looking for a place to buy nice and different cheeses.  

And on the list ... 
Drink more water 
Go to Big Lots for flower pots
Get plants repotted
Doctor appointments on Monday and Tuesday
Go to Office Depot for mailers
Go to hardware store for Ceiling Fan chain extensions

Go to Post Office on Thursday

And I want to . . . 
Go visit the garden in town and see how  it has changed in 3 weeks.  

Find a dog park for the girls.  Domino needs to run off some energy!  

On the menu . . . 

Pizza night and Happy Hour. This week I want to try the Pizza with Chicken and Spinach.  We will get an appetizer too during Happy Hour they have 3.00 & 4.00 items.  Pizza is 6.00 on Monday! 

Kielbasa, Fried Potatoes and Fried Cabbage  

Pork Chops, Rice and Black Eye Peas 

Shrimp Alfredo, Salad 

Enchiladas, Borracho Beans and Copy Cat Rice A Roni Spanish Rice 

Beans and Cornbread 

Chili Relleno Casserole and Salad

Crafting . . . 
Not alot going on.  I am still unpacking and trying to get a good space created somewhere in our 'Small Space' 
I have been spending time doing Bible Journaling/Writing Scripture. 

It soothes my soul and a good activity for when I am tired.   

This week I will be making a Monochromatic Junk Journal page for a SWAP.  

I have added to my weekly planner write letters on Friday.  

Yesterday I wrote a Thank you letter to my friend who sent the gift cards. 

And I wrote a note and card to a FB friend that needs some encouragement. 

In the garden . . . 
I bought a huge hanging basket at Home Depot.  A friend sent me gift card. 

Now trying to find pots to separate it. 

I bought another plant that is new to me.  The tag says attracts Butterflies.  And it must because they were all over the garden center. 

And on the blogs this week . . . 
Featuring Cowboy romances to honor our Anniversary.  This is Mondays feature.  Each day will feature a different book. 

From the camera . . .

Waiting quietly and praying for my family to be restored.  I miss my daughter and my grand kids. 

My word for the year was appropriate . . . 

Sparkle Anyway

Thanks for joining me!

Such is the weather in southeast Texas for this time of year, but like you said, there's always a bit of a breeze near the water. I hope you have a wonderful week and create that space for crafting you're seeking.

Had a nice time visiting. Have a great week

Sandra said...

Kielbasa and fried potatoes are one of our favorites. I'm glad you get that breeze near the water, we are in North Texas and there's no breeze, just crazy heat and humidity.

Hope you have a blessed week :)
