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

No tires

Ken took all four wheels off my car and here she sits on blocks waiting for her new tires.Mr Tire is supposed to get the tires tomorrow and then we will bring the wheels in to them. They will take the old tires off the wheels and then put the new one's on. Then Ken will pick them up and put the wheels with the new tires back on the car himself.
You may ask why we just don't bring the car in to Mr Tire.
We'd rather not leave the car there for the whole day.

The car is in the garage at the old house. Yesterday while Ken was taking the wheels off my car I was in the bathroom upstairs painting it white. I got the first coat done before running out of paint. I also cleaned one of the bedrooms and that one room now looks ready for selling the house. We are leaving a few pieces of furniture and a picture or two around just so the house isn't completely empty.

It is a very nice warm sunny day but we are having lots of wind with strong gusts at times. I didn't realize just how windy it was until I went out on the deck this morning to hang up a load of whites. I got one line with Ken's white work shirts and tee-shirts hung up when a gust came along and whipped most of the clothes right off the line. I managed to get all but two back in the basket but two tee-shirts escaped off the deck. Since the deck is off the kitchen which is on the second floor and there are no stairs I had to go through the house and out the garage to collect the wayward tee-shirts out on the road. I then just hung the clothes (except for the two dirty ones) up on the lines inside.

Meals on wheels day. I had all 8 of my people who were all fine and everything went smoothly in the normal routine - nothing out of the ordinary.

It's been great walking the last few mornings. Nice and warm but it is dark again in the morning when I start out but that won't last long as the days get longer.

I'm off to do my exercise tape and then catch up on some blog reading. Not sure yet what I'll do after that.

Hope this Monday is a bright and sunny day for you. :-)


  1. It IS very windy! Took the baby for a walk -- at least the wind was at my back most of the time.

  2. Ken takes good care of your car! No worries about scratches or anything else that way.

    Have fun getting the house ready...sounds as if you're doing a great job of staging it.

  3. Are you sure Ken isn't trying to save petrol by taking your wheels and tyres off!!!!

  4. I wouldn't leave that car at Mr. Tire either. Why take a chance?

    The wind was whippy. I tried sitting outside when I got home late this afternoon but it was too cold and windy. It's all relative, I know.


  5. You have a very nice looking car and I can see that it is well taken care of.

    It sounds like your laundry had a wild time of it today. Hope the wind dies down soon.

    Hope the rest of your day was nice.

  6. I guess we can say that Ken took your wheels away! That car looks so strange without them.
