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.

An Enjoyable Day

It was cloudy, windy and a lot warmer than I expected as I headed out the door early this morning for my walk. I went down the road, past the path that takes me to the lake and went to the little pond and walked around that.
I sat on one of these benches and watched the geese for a while.It was so nice just to sit there in the warm breeze.

I finished reading Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy.
I really like all of her books and this was another great one. The book is set in Ireland and is about a woman doctor who establishes a heart clinic at a hospital. There are many great characters and some are from previous books that Binchy has written. A book well worth reading.
This was book number 51 in my goal to read 75 books this year. I'm not sure I'll be able to read 24 books by the end of the year. If you are interested in knowing the books I have read so far the list is on the side bar.

Ken and I spent the afternoon and part of the evening together. Had lunch, did a couple of errands and watched a movie here at home that we got from the library. The movie was The Illusionist and was pretty good. A few twists and turns - a good entertaining movie. In the middle of the movie we took a break and went across the street to get that pizza that I almost got yesterday.

While at the library I happened to find three more books that I want to read so now I have quite a back log of books from the library. They are all new books so I won't be able to renew them. Looks like I'm going to be doing LOTS of reading!! :-)

We ended up getting quite a bit of rain today and it got cooler toward evening. I saw a bit of blue sky just before the sun set.

I'm off now to read, and then knit and watch some television later. Oh yeah, and have a snack. Tonight it will be 4 of those chocolate chip cookies I made yesterday.

I enjoyed my Saturday and hope you enjoyed yours as well.
Karen :-)
There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it.
It is like falling in love.

  3. Yesterday WAS bizarrely warm and humid, wasn't it? I did manage to put some my houseplants out for a nice bath.
