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

Out doing errands, home for stir fry.

Rained all night and woke up to a misty morning. No rain while I walked though. There was a feast of worms out for the Robins and other worm eating birds. Hundreds of worms all over the place!!

We spent another Saturday running around doing errands.
Post Office
Credit Union
Hardware Store
Hair dresser
Subway for lunch
And our last stop was the grocery store to pick up the makings for dinner.

We made a stir fry in the wok this evening. Thin strips of beef, mushrooms, broccoli, and cashew nuts in a brown sauce and rice to go along with it. It was delicious!! I was going to post a picture of it but some food just doesn't photograph well and this was one of those times!

Spent some time on the computer doing some work for a change in Quicken. I always enjoy doing that though. I think in a former life I must have been a bookkeeper.

Remember those top two refrigerator shelves that were too small and would keep falling down? The GE guy was here almost three weeks ago. Well, we got them today - delivered by Fedex. We just needed the two top shelves but we got ALL new shelves plus two basket drawers as well and they all fit!! Oh happy day! :-) Now I can get my freezer organized better.

Got a little reading done and now I'm off to have some of that delicious Chocolate Supreme ice cream. :-) Ain't life grand!?

Hope your Saturday was a fine and dandy one!
Happyone :-)


  1. Thank goodness you got the shelves and they fit! Takes a load of your mind, I'm sure.

    (We were out and about off and on all day, too. No lunch out, but we did have ice cream out. I had a small yogurt cone and John had a hot fudge sundae.)

    That meal sounded yummy, but I can see why it might not have photographed well. Ha!

  2. Any day that ends with ice cream is pretty good, I would say.

    Mine started with the Monument Avenue 10K race, where I did my best time ever despite an injured foot. And it ended with my old school, Villanova, making it to the final four. So plenty to be joyful about. We do have a very ill kitty, and I am feeling sad about that. Can't have perfection.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

  3. You're the second person to talk about all the worms. I'd love to scoop them up and put them in my garden.

    Your Saturday sounded just great. I love happy posts from you.

  4. It sounds like you had a great Saturday, but any day that ends with Chocolate Supreme ice cream just has to be a great day!

  5. That stir fry sounds delicious! I think I'll make a chicken one for tomorrow. Thanks for the idea!
