Happy Homemaker in Texas

 Welcome to  Sandra's Party Day 

Sandra provides the prompts.  We post then we all link over at Sandra's party. 

The Prompts 

The weather here in . . . 

I love my new city.  Did you know we moved.  The weather is always good. 
We are in upper 80's not quite to 90 but pushing it.
On Monday the high should be 84.
We seem get rain every few days or should I say night and into the wee hours.
We had one huge Gully Washer the first day we arrive.  Not a great Welcome  LOL. 
Normally it is is Sunny and Breezy. 

On the he breakfast plate . . . 
The Cowboy is not eating breakfast or lunch anymore.  His days begins about 2:00.  Usually he eats a Sausage or Hot Dog on a bun. 

I realized that I was not eating either.  Most days I was eating a few Grapes or a piece of Cheese waiting on him .
Today I fixed a  plate of leftover Chicken And Rice. 

What I am wearing . . . 
Last week I wore some White pants I have never worn.   They are cool and comfy.  
Most days it's shorts a cami and tank top. 

On My Reading Journeys
 in July . . . 

And in August . . . 
The Second Annual
Dog Days of Summer 
With all new books and new authors! 

And in September . . . 
I am bringing back Author Chat 

On my reading pile . . .   

In the garden . . .
I have a few dollars left on my Home Depot gift card so I plan to go Wednesday and get a few bedding in plants. 

Did you see the Butterfly plant I got.  It is so pretty!  
This is what it looked like when I first in planted it ...

In the crafting space . . . 
I have been unpacking and discovering my long lost supplies. 

I have finished a Flowish Journal for SWAP.  

And an altered Magazine for my Planner for the month of July.  

Recipes to try . . .
I have cans of Spinach and Chick Peas. I found these recipes on Pinterest to try 
This one looks cold it might pair well with what we pick up off the boat. 

Trying to this one to night

This week's menu . . . 

The Cowboy found a Tomahawk Pork Chop on sale at Kroger. 
I will cook it up and serve with h French Fries and Creamed Spinach. 
I will have a Chicken Breast. 

Usually we try to go out for Pizza but the Cowboy isn't feeling too good.  
If we stay home I will make Frito Pie.  It is easy and he likes it.  

Plenty of Hamburger and Cheese so we will have Taco's.  Just need to get lettuce. 

I like to make Spaghetti following Taco's the leftover Taco Meat makes good Sauce 

It's not Stew weather but I cooked a Roast over the weekend so Stew and Biscuits sounds good.  Maybe a Salad to cool us down. 

Fresh Catch from the Pier
Fresh Veggies

Pinto Beans and Cornbread 

I will give Cowboy  the chance to to decide between two favorites. 
Not! Mine fav's anyway.
Either Meat Loaf or Chicken Spaghetti  

To Do List 
Finish letters and packages to mail
Go to Post office 
Go to Home Depot for plants 
Finish organizing my crafting space
Go to an antique  shop to try and sell a few things.

Something to fun to do 
Stroll the Historic area and find Antique Shops  
Maybe take dogs to dog park 

From the Camera  

The really cool step at the place we get Pizza.
And a cool outside wall painting for photo opps. 


Sparkle Anyway

When did you move? was it recently?
I do hope you are planning some posts for Christmas in July. I know I am and I love the Christmas spirit when I get to read a few bloggers.
Have a great week

The weather sounds perfect! I've always wanted to visit Galveston since reading a books series set there; it sounded so cute and beachy.

Congratulations on your move! Sounds like you really like your new home. Pretty shells in the photo. Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

Oh my goodness, Sherry! Cute post!!! I'm going back and reading some posts from Share Your Style #308 and picking up some for a special #310 for next week (July 14th), and I'll include yours. Enjoy Galveston Island!! I stayed there the second year we were here in Texas, over the first December weekend, for the Dickens Festival. There's a great tea at an old Victorian mansion there... Plus there were soooo many folks who came out and dressed up! I LOVED walking the beach and reading all the benches and plaques about the great hurricane of the early 1900's... Ate some really good tacos from a shop there, too... Galveston reminds me of walking the beaches as a kid on Oahu when we lived there (1970-1974), the backside of the island where it's not as touristy (even then).

Congratulations on your move and enjoy the long walks and eating fresh fish,
Barb :)
And I'll pull a photo for next week's Share Your Style #310 while I'm here. :)
