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.

Friday at Home

I woke up a little later than usual this morning and didn't start my walk until almost 7:30. I did my usual 6 mile walk around the lake. I left the paved path for a bit and walked down this dirt path. I saw the white egret again, a few chipmunks, and deer.

More trees got planted today around all the newest townhouses that are now finished in my neighborhood. The building is all done at my end with only one more row of 8 houses down at the other end where the model was. The house that was the model is a residence now.

I stayed home again today. It was cloudy all day though a bit warmer than yesterday.
I did a lot of reading and read Finger Lickin Fifteen
by Janet Evanovich.
I love these books. They are easy reads with lots of fun and colorful characters in them. Stephanie Plum gets into all sorts of trouble with Lula, Grandma, and the rest. A few more of her cars get torched as does her apartment - again!!

I watched a new television show yesterday called Flash Forward which I thought was good and will watch again next week.
The people of the world all black out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds and get to see into their future ( I think its 6 months). Some people see things that they didn't expect to see, some see nothing, and some try to find out what caused it.

I ended up having ice cream last night! :-) So today I'll have the other option and go with the cookies and milk.
This evening I'm going to watch a Netflix - A Touch of Frost. Of course when I watch television I will be knitting too.

Its hard to believe that its already Friday. This week has really passed quickly for me.

I hope you had a fantastic Friday.

Karen :-)

  1. I discovered her books not long ago and I love them. I like the fact that the same main characters are in each book.

  2. Wow, you sure are a fast reader.
    For some reason A Touch of Frost sounds familiar. I am thinking from a long time ago. Is it an old movie?

    I always look forward to your quote at the end of the post. I would tend to agree with this one.

    Enjoy your weekend.
