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

Walking Shoes

A chilly start to the morning today with a temperature of 30 degrees. I broke out the new walking shoes this morning. Cheryl - I take pictures of my feet too. :-) I am always a little leery of trying out a new pair of walking shoes because I walk so much I really need a good pair of shoes and if they don't feel good right away I can't wear them. These new ones are great though. I walked 7 miles today and my feet felt perfect!

I finished making the Thanksgiving Day card today. I can't believe all the stuff I had all over the place just making one card. What a mess I made.
I'll post a picture of the card when it had been delivered.

This afternoon we had some snow showers. Didn't amount to anything though which is fine by me.

A pretty quiet day - didn't go anywhere. We didn't even go look at the town house after supper.

We are going to watch a movie in just a few minutes when I get finished here called The Pursuit of Happyness. Hope it's good.

I hope your Tuesday was a Happy One.


  1. I like your walking shoes. I'm thinking of getting gel inserts for mine. I was out in the flurries! I loved it, but what a weird day.

  2. Brrr... getting pretty cold. You are in for some snow just around the corner!!
    Nice shoes!

  3. I feel the same way, Happy One. A good pair of walking shoes makes walking pleasurable, an uncomfortable pair can result in misery. As much as they cost, I am always a little leary, because it is like throwing away a $100 bill if the fit is not right.

    For me, getting good fitting comfortable hiking boots is even tougher (and more expensive).

  4. Happy One has Happy Feet.

    I think I can make a poem out of that hmmm.......

  5. You are a brave one going on a seven mile walk with new walking shoes. Glad to hear that they were just perfect for your walk. I always look for comfort in my walking shoes.

    Your townhouse is really going up fast. Do they give you an estimate at to when they will have it ready for you to move into?

  6. I've thought of you these past few mornings and wonder how you walk when it's frigid. I'm taking the easy way out and walking inside. That's fine with me, but I really admire you.

  7. Glad to hear your new shoes worked out well. I hope you liked the movie. I saw it and thought is was very good.
    Thanks for your recent visit. How nice of you and your husband to deliver Meals on Wheels on Thanksgiving and also to visit the lady in the nursing home. I am sure you are bringing lots of happiness to many people.

  8. I really enjoyed "The Pursuit of Happyness" We are having unseasonably warm weather here in Idaho. I would have been certain we would be experiencing cold weather as well but have yet to see it. Like your shoes!!

  9. Can't wait to see the Thanksgiving card. I make cards too so I know what a mess can be made.
