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

A bump on the head!!!

This morning we awoke to cold weather again and another dusting of snow. It was supposed to warm up later in the day so I decided to walk later in the day. By 10:00 it had warmed up to just above freezing so I layered up and headed out the door. I walked about 1/2 mile and hit some ice under snow and up in the air I went and down I came landing flat on my back and heard my head crack against the sidewalk. OUCH!! I was a bit dazed and just stayed down for a while making sure I was okay. I was a bit shaken up and walked slowly back home, called Kenny at work and he came home. I have a big bump on the back of my head which is a bit sore, but other than that I am fine. No broken bones and I don't even have a headache. Kenny really didn't have to come home but I'm glad he did. :-) He took me out for lunch and then went back to work.

I love to listen to the Italian love songs they sometimes play in Italian restaurants and the other week when we were out in an antique shop, the woman working there was listening to music that I thought was Italian singing. I told her how much I liked the music and she told me it was a Spanish singer called Mario de Mi Alma. Kenny downloaded one of his albums for me from iTunes and I've been listening to it all day. I have no idea what the words are he is singing but I love to listen to it. :-) It is so beautiful!!!

This afternoon I spent going through our filing cabinet and organizing everything. I even made new folders and got everything nice and neat. Now I have LOTS of shredding to do but have saved that job for another day.

I have some bread baking in the bread machine and it's starting to smell really good. Since Kenny will be working late tonight I'm going to eat bread with butter and jelly for supper.

Last night we started a new series from Netflix that my daughter Debbi recommended. It's called The Lost Room and is on the SciFi channel. There is a key that opens any door and it takes you to a certain hotel room. There are also simple every day objects that do strange things and there are people out there who know about these objects and are trying to collect them all. We both like this strange new show. (new for us anyway) Thanks Deb!!

It's time now for a little needlepoint which I'll do until supper time and then I'll read until Kenny comes home.

Hope all is well in your part of the world and that your Wednesday is a Happy One. :-)


  1. Glad you're okay! Keep checking your eyes for dilation rates.
    I fell and hit my head at Leelyn's! I was fine except embarrassed.
    I'm surprised no one stopped to help you.

  2. Sounds like a lovely day apart from the falling over bit! Glad you are OK. My son got hit by a snowball yesterday and ended up in A & E (I think you say ER) having caused bleeding in the eye so he has to rest now! Silly boy!
    Hope you have a safer walk tomorrow.

  3. I was sorry to hear about your fall. Hopefully warmer weather will come to stay and we won't have to worry about slippery paths for a while.

  4. Glad to hear your OK. A hot bath might be in order tonight. Hopefully you won't be sore later!

  5. I'm so glad to hear that you are okay after your fall. How sweet of your husband to come home and check in on you. The smell of bread baking on a cold day is heavenly. Hope you enjoyed your dinner.

  6. How terrible to fall like that. I'm so glad you are ok.

  7. Ice can be a dangerous foe. I'm glad you weren't badly injured. Hubby gets a star for coming home to check on you.

  8. Good heavens! You might have a concussion. It's always a good idea to be checked out especially when there's been some confusion. Ken is a sweetheart for going home when you called. Hope that you are feeling better and that the bump on your noggin doesn't last long. Ice...I hate that stuff.

  9. Don't I sound like a nurse's sister? :)

  10. I hope you don't have any lasting ill effects from your fall. Apart from the embarrassment factor a fall can really shake you up. Take it easy for a few days at least till the ice clears up. Do they make studded walking shoes for icy conditions because something like that might be useful. Take care.

  11. Whoa! I'm glad you're okay. That was a scary fall! Goodness, spring can't come soon enough.

    I'm going to check out that singer.

  12. oh my.....please be careful Karen, it is not worth NOT being able to walk!!! Sending a gentle hug. Love you, Pamie
