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

Pink and green

We spent yesterday coming and going all day and got lots of errands done. Kenny makes detail parts for model train layouts which he sells and decided to use one of the other bedrooms as a work room. We bought a couple of kitchen cabinets and will soon buy the counter top to put on top for his work surface. Once it's done I'll post some pictures of the room. This will be a good place for him to work on his glass hobby too.

I had a nice surprise today on my walk around the lake - I saw THREE great blue herons all together. I saw one near the shore line and tried to get close to take a picture, when it and two others flew away. I might not have gotten a picture but what a sight to see three of them take off together!! Beautiful!!

I got a new person on my Meals on Wheels route today which gives me 9 people now - a good amount. I haven't had to sub for a while so have just been doing my regular scheduled every other Monday. I would like to deliver EVERY week. Once summer comes along I should be subbing more because people go away on vacations. The road work continues on the road where Mrs W lives so again I took the FJ. All my people were fine today and I am happy to say I had no trouble finding my new lady. I'm always a bit nervous when I have a new person because the directions they give us to follow are pretty poor.

Last night we went out for pizza and when I got home from Meals on Wheels I was all set to heat up a leftover slice for my lunch. Opened up the refrigerator and no pizza - it was then that I realized we left it on the table in the restaurant! :-(

I've finally decided on the colors for the half bathroom downstairs - pink and green. I got some pink checked curtains which were too long so today I hemmed, ironed and hung them up. I found the curtains of all places yesterday at Lowe's!! I would never have thought to look for curtains there and just happened to see them as I walked down one of the aisles. I got a pink rug and have to buy some pink towels and will paint the walls green.
The little bathroom upstairs is to be blue and yellow.

No ice cream for me tonight. I've been eating a little too many extra calories and the ice cream is a good place to cut back for a few days. My snack tonight will be Welsh Cookies - I'll have 4 and each is only 40 calories.
We have a movie to watch tonight with our snack. I'll also do some knitting.

And that ends my Monday. It was a good one and I hope yours was too. :-)


  1. My cousin bought her curtains at Lowes, too. I was very surprised by that. Perhaps you'll give us a sneak peek someday.

    Three blue herons? Wow! That really must've been something to see. I get excited seeing one.

    Ken's work sounds very interesting.
    My son used to be very much into miniature train layouts.

    I know how disappointing it is to leave behind the pizza or the doggy bag. It's happened to me more than once...always frustrating.

  2. The herons must have been a magnificent sight!
    You are so responsible about your diet. Good for you!

  3. It sounds as if Kenny will have a great room to work on his projects. I often wish I had a room where I could spread out my stamps and albums for a day or two.
    Thank you for the work you do with Meals on Wheels.

  4. Your color sound soothing for your bathrooms...post some pics when your able...

  5. Wow! Three blue herons. I see them here sometimes, but haven't been able to get a good picture.

    We have a miniature train shop/club in the little mall in Crossville. I always think of your husband when I walk past it.

  6. My daughter found some pretty curtains at Lowes also.
    Will be looking forward to seeing the bathrooms.

  7. Three blue herons together must have been a wonderful sight.

    I like the sounds of your pink and green bathroom and, of course, I also like the blue/yellow combo for the other bathroom. I hope you will post some pictures when you are done.
