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

The New Bird Bath

The word on weather around here today was wind!!!! My wind chimes are still at the old house and I bet they are chiming away today.

This is the bird bath we bought last night at the hardware store. It rained last night so there is a little water in it.
I guess I spoke too soon the other day because I ran into another friendly person this morning. I was walking around the lake and caught up to a woman. We said a good morning to each other and I asked if she wanted company for a little while. I perfer to walk alone but sometimes like a little company for part of a walk. She felt the same way so we walked half way around the lake together talking and then I took off again. Her name is Jeannie and I'm sure I'll see her many more times. :-)

I spent most of the day on line today at LibraryThing. I left a lot of my books back at the old house which I'm not going to bring here. I'm only keeping the books that I really like and would like to read some day again. So I've been deleting the books I don't have any more out of the library list on LibraryThing. Then also had to add some new ones that I have read recently. I can't believe how much time I spent doing this and the hours just raced by.

Kenny didn't make it home for supper because of another late day at work, but he did make it home in time for ice cream.

I'll do a little reading and knitting the rest of the evening until it's once again time for bed.
Pleasant dreams!


  1. The wind was so bad here yesterday that I had to repair one of our wind chimes. I like your birdbath.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. That's a pretty birdbath you have bought and I'm so glad you are finding people more friendly now. It will soon feel as friendly as your old place I'm sure.

  3. I like the birdbath, too! It was blustery yesterday, wasn't it?

  4. Just knew that you wouldn't take long to find the friendly ones...

    That's a very nice birdbath. I really like whatever material or stain or whatever finish is on the deck itself...looks great!

  5. Nice looking bird bath. I'm sure the birds will enjoy it.

  6. That sure is a pretty bird bath... if I was a bird, I would be more than happy to splash around in it!!

    Happy Valentine's Day♥

  7. Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE the birdbath! Can't wait until you capture a picture with birds in it!!
