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

Not much gets done today!

Today I walked the route around the lake. The lake is 2 1/2 miles and I live only 1 mile away so I have to walk an extra mile and a half to make a 6 mile walk. I do that by walking up the main road by my house to the cross walk, where I cross and then walk home. About half way through my walk today it started to drizzle so I was slightly damp by the time I made it back home. The sun did eventually come out and boy did it get WINDY again. This time my wind chimes are here on the deck and they got a real work out. :-)

If you want to get anything done around the house, do not start doing needlepoint in the morning. That is what I did and I didn't get much of anything else done today. But I did enjoy my day! :-)

We checked out another store for ice cream but didn't care for the store so we left. It was a dark and dingy store. Then we went back to Mars and got a flavor called Amaretto Cherry Chocolate to try. It has maraschino cherries, dark chocolate chips in Amaretto ice cream swirled with chocolate fudge sauce. Though nothing can replace my Weis Chocolate Chip this was a very good flavor too. Kenny didn't like it as much as I did and preferred his usual chocolate. The Mars store is the brightest store I've ever been in, which is super for a food store I think. You almost have to wear sun glasses! :-)

We started another series on Netflix called The House of Eliott. Two sisters start a dress making business in London in the 1920's after their father dies and leaves them penniless. It's pretty good so far.

That's about it for this Thursday.
A Happy Day to you all!!


  1. A nice walk and checking out ice cream? Sounds like a great day to me! Art

  2. I'm very impressed that you walk six miles each day. I try to do 5, but if there is a lot of yard work to do, I often don't make it.

  3. When was it drizzling? Somehow I missed that!
    You really are a trooper as far as the walking goes.

  4. I wish I had time to walk six miles. I've gotten away from walking, and I really miss it! I enjoy keeping up with your blog!

  5. Oh my goodness! Amaretto Cherry Chocolate!! Oh, I'm soooo drooling over here!

    Have a great day!


  6. The House of Elliott was one of the only Masterpiece series I've seen and I loved it! I wouldn't mind seeing it again.
