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

I took this picture of mums on my walk this morning. They are so full and I love the yellow color.
This morning I decided to go to the mall to buy a dress. We are going to a classical concert on Friday and I wanted to get something new. I walked in and out of so many stores and tried on so many dresses but didn't find any that I liked. I tried to find a color but almost everything is black and they either looked like grandmother dresses or for teenagers. Nothing seemed right for me. I am not really a shopper so I get tired of looking and trying on things pretty quick. Maybe I'll go out another day this week to another mall and look. If I can't find anything I'll just have to wear my old stand by of black pants and jacket with pinstripes I have. It's nice, and comfortable too, but I'm just tired of wearing it. It seems when I don't need a dress I can see ones that I like, but I don't buy them. Then when I need a dress I can't find one anywhere. Oh well, if that's the worst problem I have, I should consider myself lucky!!
Even though I didn't find a dress it was a beautiful sunny day and I really did enjoy driving my car - windows down, listening to some music - life is good!
Did a little work around the house this afternoon and then went and sat out on the porch and did a little knitting.
We went out to eat for supper tonight at a place called La Fiesta. A few people I know have told me about the place and how good the food is and we just never got around to going there. I'm glad we went - really liked the place. I had two enchiladas - one spinach and one cheese, with some rice and beans on the side. I'm sure we will be going back there again some time.
A little reading, a Netlix and some ice cream rounded out my day.
