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

Good smelling house

I went for my morning walk as usual. A lot of people must be busy cooking and baking or traveling because there were just a couple of people out.

I went to the library this morning to pick up a book that was on hold for me and found 2 other books that I couldn't leave without.

I baked some Pumpkin Bread this afternoon.
My recipe makes three loaves at one time.
We will eat one of the loaves and I'll freeze the other two for another time.
I also made a Pumpkin Pie crust and all.
The house is smelling oh so good. I smell it best when I'm up at the top of the stairs. It's going to be hard to wait until tomorrow to eat any of this pie. Since it's just for us maybe we will have a piece a day early!!

This picture of the townhouse was taken last night in the dark so it's not a good picture but you can see that they have started on the brick.
Well, I'd better go and clean the kitchen up after my day of baking. I make such a mess when I bake. Then I'm going to sit down and start one of those library books I just got.

Make your Wednesday a Happy One!!


  1. You've had a good day! The gym was very crowded this morning. My house would be smelling good if it weren't for the little oven fire I had after baking the apple pie.
    The house is looking good:)

  2. I just finished myself...pumpkin pie, poppyseed bread, i have an apple pie in the oven now...made my candied sweet potatoes in oj and molasses a day early..the house smells SO GOOD!..steak sandwiches for lunch for my sons...and waiting to get the ravioli on for dinner....It smells like a restaurant in here! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Again, MAN those guys are FAST - I'd still be putting up the scaffolding and their half way up the wall!

    I hope you both have a nice, warm, cozy holiday.

  4. I make such a mess, too. In fact, I'm here avoiding said mess right now. Your pie looks scrumptious!
