Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

A beautiful sunny day with a bright blue sky.

I've been doing some knitting lately.
Here are some more dish clothes I've made and also another white square.

I have also started on another ripple afghan.
Maybe I'll keep this one for myself.
I finished the blue afghan I was making and will be sending it to Kim,
one of my blogger friends.
From reading her blog I know that she likes blue and white and this afghan just seems right for her. She didn't know I was making it for her, so I hope Kim, that you are surprised to read it is for you. :-)

My Mom's foot surgery went well. She has to stay off her foot for 24 hours and my Dad is taking good care of her.

This day seems to have zoomed by and I haven't done much of anything.
I read a little and did some knitting too.

After supper I went over to my daughters house and my granddaughter washed my hair for me and then gave my hair a trim. Thanks Taryn you did a great job.
Cheryl just cut my hair for me a couple of weeks ago. I told her I wanted just the last bit of the brown cut off and to leave it on the long side. She did a great job but after living with it I realized I wanted it a bit shorter.

I watched an episode of Mad Men from Netflix. I'm on the second season, third disc.

So Monday comes to an end. I hope your day had a few happy moments scattered throughout.

Karen :-)

  1. Karen,
    I am beyond surprised to read this. I am Ecstatic!!! I am touched more than you will ever know. This afghan is beautiful and you know me well, as it is a perfect match for my blue & white house :-) I have always admired your knitting talents and to think that you would do something like this for me really makes me feel blessed. Thank you so very much my dear blogging friend.

  5. Karen,
    I want to thank all of your"bloggers" for their prayers with my surgery! Yesteray was not to good, but today all I can say is, Hallelujah! Amen. How true the bible is when you read ,
    "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
    Love you, Mommy

  8. Your knitting is beautiful! Such talent!
    Good news on your mother's foot.

  9. I took a sick day today for a bad stomach and was sitting here in my big reading chair under the afgan you gave to me. I got it out of last night, first time I've used it this fall. It got me thinking about you so I decided to come see if you were posting again, and YEAH! you are - and about knitting too - funny how things work out.

  10. Now I really need to see you to check out your shorter hair! I'm sure Taryn did a great job.

    Monday was so nice! I'm sitting outside as I write this on another nice day.

    One of these days I'll check out Mad Men. Is it as good as everyone says?
