Happy Homemaker Monday

Welcome to my first Happy Homemaker Monday post here . . . 
Happy Homemaker Monday
I like to join Sandra from Family Corner to share my plans for the week.  Making a few plans keeps me organized and on target.  Something I need to make everyday a Holiday at The Cottage.
Here are the prompts Sandra provides . . .

The weather..... One word.  Hot.  It's the end of July in Texas.  That's all that needs to be said.

On My T.V.
HGTV

Right now I am.... enjoying a leisure time writing and making plans. 

Thinking.... That I wish it was September.  Cooler weather and I might have some veggies growing.  And it would be closer to Christmas.

On my reading pile....  Oh my goodness it is a pile!  I have a ton of reviews planned for the week and the next couple of weeks. 
.....

Favorite blog post last week (mine or other)....  over at Mackie and Molly's they shared how faced Mackie is growing.  He is a new puppy a couple of months old and growing big and strong.  


Something fun to share.... The Cowboy and I have decided to buy a motor home.  Wait let me expound on that.  A cheap motor home.  I'm so excited.  I hope we get one in the next few months.  We'll be traveling around Texas for sure.  I hope visit some friends! 

Blog hopping (newly discovered blog)....   My Crazy Life As A Farmers Wife first they are just adorable. Picture Chip and JoAnna Gaines and their family except on a farm.  She has an amazing garden.  The photographer is fabulous.  Go over for a visit!

On the menu for this week.... 
Monday...Actually not sure.  We are both off.  Maybe we'll go look at motorhomes.  I'm not planning anything.
Tuesday...Taco's Tuesday HeHe
Wednesday... Chicken n Dumplin's I've had a craving.  Do you have a good recipe?
Thursday... Homemade Pizza with the grandson.  Pepperoni for us plain cheese for him.
Friday...Kielbasa, Corn on the Cob and Salad

On my to do list....
Post of course... Finish my new gallery wall.  I hope I can show you soon! ...Clean the patio Most of my plants are dead. It's just too hot...

In the craft basket....
I am crocheting a blanket for my daughter for Christmas.  Started last year but it was too wonky so I've started over.

Looking forward to this week....
A little cooler weather and maybe some rain. 

Looking around the house....  
Gallery wall is looking great.  But the wall(s) that I took some of the prints done from look bare now.  Gotta figure this out.  

From the camera....
T:
Very bad shot but I had to share this amazing picture I got at Hobby Lobby on Saturday.  This beauty will graze the wall above the mantle.  More about it later!

On my prayer list.....
Two Christmas projects.  My Cowboy is a Chaplain at a boys prison unit.  Since Christmas falls on Sunday this year we're doing a big event for the youth on Christmas Day.  We will begin fundraising August 1.

The other project is I am collecting books and other giveaway items for my daughters church's Christmas even for single moms.

Bible verse, Devotional....
Proverbs 3:6   http://www.myjourneyback-thejouneyback.blogspot.com:
A project for Christmas for my daughter.   

Thanks for joining me today and sharing a peek at my plans for the week.  For me it's much easier to make everyday a Holiday. 

          Do you make plans for your week?  
                           Happy Trails
