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.

Another sunny day

🚴     🚴
This morning it was 55 degrees with the sun shining and a slight
breeze on my walk.  Another beautiful morning.

Walked the streets behind my house.
Up and down the streets it town and around both cemeteries and the 
ball park loop.

Saw Kathy's car but never did see her.  Rebeca was out running today.  I usually 
see her walking her little white dog.  We came across each other
three times as we walked and ran around town.
Another man was out running around town too but I don't know him.

Times passes swiftly when walking and I can't believe when the hour
and a half is over and I head back home.

Walked 6.2 miles
 🚶     🚶
Spent a little time this morning doing a bit more weeding.
After lunch we went to Walmart and did some shopping.

I finished reading my book this afternoon, News of the World by Paulette Jiles.
It is the next book club selection.
This was a good one with a good ending.
A young girl was kidnapped and raised for 6 years with the Kiowa.
Captain Jefferson Kidd delivers her back to her relatives 400 miles away.
This is their story.

I've started reading one of my Nancy Drew books,
The Secret of Red Gate Farm.
I have quite a few of them in my collection and every once in a while
I read one of them.  They are corny but fun to read.

I made one of those salads for supper that Ken and I like so much.
This time I added chicken to it too.
It was a delicious supper.

A happy day to you.

  6. I really like salads with chicken...sometimes I grill it...but more often these days get a rotisserie chicken.

    We used to get McCormicks Broiled Steak Seasoning to put on chicken breasts and they were delicious but we have not seen the seasoning in a long time. They have one that is very similar but I can't think what it is called.
