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

A busy day

When I left for my walk Ken left also and went into work for a little while. I was home before he was and when he got home I made us French toast for breakfast.

I took this picture of the little tree they planted on the side of our house.It will be fun to look back some day and see how small it once was.

Here is a close up. I don't know what kind it is.
I'll have to do a little research. Take notice of that beautiful bright blue sky!

After breakfast we went back to Savage again. Did a little repair to the fence in the front yard - now I have to paint it! Raked up some leaves along the side and looked through the stuff in the garage and started putting some things out for a yard sale. Came across some more stuff that I decided to keep after all!

Stopped in to return some things to the library and picked up a couple more books, CD's and a couple of DVD's. That should keep us set for this week. :-)

While we were out we stopped at Pot Belly's for a sandwich.

We were at home for a little while and then out we went again. This time to check out the best prices for some more lighting that Ken wants to put in the garage. We bought most of what he needed.

After running around all day it was nice to sit down this evening and have a snack of Welsh cookies, do a little knitting and watch a DVD we got from the library. We watched McLeod's Daughters - a new series for us but one that's been around a while. Another recommendation from someone who I can remember! It was okay. We also watched a movie - A Death at a Funeral. You have never been to a funeral like this one!! A British comedy! :-)

I hope your Saturday was a happy one!
Happyone :-)


  1. I'm the first to comment, lol
    We have those trees here to and this afternoon I pictured them.
    I don't know the name , can't help you out.

  2. Your tree looks like a flowering Birch...The movie, "A Death at a Funeral", so funny!! I saw that in the theater....

  3. Everything around our area is bursting with bloom. Don't know what kind of tree that is -- at first I thought it was a flowering cherry, but I don't think so.

I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
