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.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Floor Oulet

There seems to be no end to this weather.
About now all of us must be lacking in vitamin D.
Another walking in the basement day.
A look from the front of the house.
A look out the back of the house.
When our house was built the electrician put the wiring in 
for an outlet in the floor in the living room.  
We weren't sure where exactly where we wanted it and told him we would
finish it when we decided where to put it.
Today Ken put the outlet between our two chairs so we could put
a lamp there without having to run a cord across the room.
He cut a hole in the floor.  
I'm looking through the hole here down to the basement taking the picture.
The hole looks big from the picture but it is just a little one, the size
of an outlet cover.
There's the outlet and it works just fine.
 We went down to the Shop and Save to pick up a few things.  
Wanted to see how the roads were.  
Once we got down to the main road they were fine.

Started working on the border around the quote
I'm making for my friend.  The border is black and blue
and just a simple cross stitch.

Not much happening today but still it was a good one.

No Cavities

More of the same weather and I got my walking done in the basement.
I worked quite a while on the cross stitch project for my friend.
I sat at the table in our office working on it and listening to an
audio book, Low Pressure by Sandra Brown.
This is the view sitting at the table working.
As you can see snow is falling.
I've finished the saying on the project and now will work on a 
simple border around the words.
It was Baby Blanket day at church today but I didn't get to go.
We were supposed to go to the dentist tomorrow but they
called to say the office would be closed on Friday and would we
like to come in today.
So we figured we would go and get that over and done with today.
Sure is nice to have that over with.
It was just a cleaning and I'm happy that we both can say,
"Yay, no cavities." 🦷
We each got a little goodie bag.
After our appointments we went to Annie's Kitchen here in town
and had lunch.
 Stopped at the library too and picked up the next book
club meeting book, aptly titled In the Midst of Winter.

So that's it for today.
Hope your day was a happy one.

A quiet day

I walked a mile down in the basement waiting for it to
get light enough to walk outside.
Then I went outside and walked up and down the lane a few times.
It was 20 degrees with a very light freezing mist in the air.
Saw three deer this morning run across the lane again and duck 
under the fence.  Must have been the same ones from yesterday
because they followed the exact same path.

Don't see any people at all walking the lane.
By the time I got home my coat was covered in a light layer of ice.
🦌     🦌     🦌
No work at the old house today.  Took a day off to get some house
work done.

Once again this afternoon I read and worked on the
counted cross stitch project.
I have half of the words of the saying done now.

Another day of no sun and a few snow showers.

 Off to church in a few minutes.
Hope your day was a happy one.
Life is Good
happyone  ❤️
