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 sunny day

The day started out cloudy, rainy and foggy but by mid morning the sun was shining. : )

No knitting for me today.  Don't have my wits about me good enough to drive yet.  Can't be driving in a fog!

Did a few more things around the house this morning and I continue to get stronger.  Just looking forward to Sunday when it's my last pill day.  

This afternoon we went out and did a few errands.  It was nice to be outside in the sunshine.

I finished reading a book that I borrowed from my friend Mary Jo.  It was only 90 pages but what powerful words.  It was excellent and I read it in one sitting.  The Case for Easter by Lee Strobel.
The cover says, "The Case for Easter probes the core issues of the resurrection.  Jesus Christ, risen from the dead: superstitious myth or life-changing reality?  The evidence is in.  The verdict is up to you."
Lee Strobel was educated at Yale Law School and was the award winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and an atheist until 1981.

This evening I was back to cooking and doing the dishes.  Things are returning to normal. : )

We watched a little television, a DVD we got from the library, Jesse Stone: Night Passage with Tom Selleck.  It was a bit depressing but pretty good.

My snack tonight was two pieces of wheat toast.
I would have had a little ice cream but can't take my pill after having dairy.

Hope your Tuesday was a happy one.
Happyone : )

  1. It sounds like you are pacing yourself well, and it won't be long before you will be as good as new.

  3. I have read about half of The Case for Christ by the same author as your book, Lee Strobel. Very powerful book. I'm not sure why I never finished it...but it was good and I think I just got busy and side tracked and never finished it. Now I think I'm going to do that! Glad you were able to get out and do some things today. Wheat toast instead of oreos for a snack...sounds like you are following the doctor's orders!

  6. That Mark Twain...what a nut! So glad to hear you sounding more yourself every day. I'm convinced that, once off that medication, life is going to improve dramatically.

  7. So happy to hear you being wise. And coming back, bit by bit. So hard, but so necessary.

    Mmmmm, do you "have all the skinny" on getting real fiber, like in your wheat toast? Unless the first ingredient says "Whole," it isn't. And they are scamming you. -sigh-

    Just sayin'... 'Cause I've "been in this business,' for a long time....

    Happy Spring!

  8. Glad to hear that you are slowly, but surely returning to normal. I'm sure you will be very glad to be done with the pills.
    Pretty picture of the clouds. I see a heart shaped cloud.
