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 BIG pizza

This morning I walked my connect the path route which is a nice 6 mile walk. A damp humid morning but still a nice morning for walking. Not many people about on the paths but I'm sure there were lots of people around the lake today. It's funny how many people are there during the warm months and in the winter the number really whittles down. Today again I saw many rabbits and a deer.

While we were in Deep Creak we found a very good pizza place called Brenda's. They have some really big pizzas there. We usually get a large pizza when we go out and bring the leftover slices home. Usually the large is a 16 inch round pizza, so when we ordered one at Brenda's we got a large. We didn't realize Brenda's large is a 20 inch pie! The pizza in the picture doesn't really look that big, but the pie was BIG. They have a super large pie too that's a 26 inch one. A woman got one to go while we were there. I wanted to take a picture of the woman carrying the huge box but thought she would think me strange so I didn't.

Last evening we went to Mama Lucia for dinner but when we arrived there was a sign on the door saying it was closed because of no hot water. What a disappointment, but not very far away is an Olive Garden so we went there instead. :-) We shall try Mama's another night. Not today though, I'm making tuna casserole for supper.

Knitting day today outside at Kings Contrivance. A small group today - only 8 of us.
After leaving there I stopped in at the library to renew a book. I'm reading a non fiction one for a change and it is all about the brain. Very, very good.

We got some much needed rain yesterday. I checked my rain gage and it showed 2.5 inches of rain!! More rain is supposed to be on the way today but so far only clouds.

Well off I go to do some reading.
Hope you are having a fine Tuesday.
Happyone :-)

  2. That pizza looks yummy and no matter the size. Leftover pizza is always good...I'll have to try your method. You're not going to tell us the name of the book about the brain? Hot and muggy here, but not like you guys suffer it I'm sure. I can remember visiting my aunt and uncle (in your corner) some summers when I thought that we would faint with heat and humidity.

  4. I'm interested to know what you're reading about the brain. I've read a couple of "brain" books in the last few months, too. (Listed on my sidebar.) I LOVE tuna casserole but haven't made it in ages - a casserole is often too much for the two of us. Hope you get relief from the heat and humidity soon - my friend who lives in MD is melting!
