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.

A nice warm day

This morning was the warmest one yet with a temperature of 40 degrees. It was a sunny morning as I walked along the neighborhood paths. I saw quite a few people out and they all had smiles today. There were 8 kids out riding their bikes to school and 3 of them even said good morning to me! and two people stopped for me to cross the street in the crosswalk! I saw and heard the beautiful colored Blue Jays, Robins, and Cardinals. Spring is in the air. :-)
I walked 6.3 miles.
Sunrise 6:25
Sunset 6:10

Today my car is 8 years old. 8 years ago today I was driving it home from Kerbeck's (the dealer) in NJ in the pouring rain.

I haven't made bread in a while and Kenny has been having a yearning for toast with homemade bread so I put the ingredients in the bread machine and made a loaf. The house smelled wonderful.

For a while in the afternoon before the clouds rolled in, it was sunny and warm. So nice that I sat out on the deck out back and knitted. Once the sun went away it was a bit chilly for sitting outside, but it sure was nice to be able to sit on the deck again, if only for a little while. :-)

After supper we did a few errands and then came home to watch a little television. I had a few cookies for my snack but Ken wanted some of the homemade bread so he made toast.
I knitted while watching television.

Did you have a good Thursday? I hope so!!
Happyone :-)

  2. Happy Birthday to your car.
    Your walk sounds like a very pleasant one and sitting out on the deck sounds great too. We had a rainy day here.
    I love the smell of bread baking. I think I may need to dig out my bread machine this weekend.

  3. Warm weather is certainly a wonderful blessing. We've had a couple of sunny, warm days although it is raining right now. Santa brought us a bread maker for Christmas and I agree that the smell is wonderful when making bread.

  4. Now that's a true quote. Must share it with Nan. The snow is going fast now! I only have a little dab on the front lawn and a bit on the side from the plow. I'll be glad to see it gone. Have you ever made Paska? I know that your honey would love it!

  5. I like the gold-hued photo and the way the path leads into the trees.
