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 tiny nest

Our weather today has been one of change - clouds, rain, sun, more rain and more clouds and sun.
I found this tiny birds nest in the middle of the sidewalk where I was walking. It is only 3 inches across. It's the cutest little thing. I've put it on the window sill on the stairs with some plants.
I took this picture of a white crane on the lake this morning. It was far away and I zoomed in with my camera. It was too far away to get a good picture but I liked how the picture came out. When you click on it to enlarge it, it looks like a water color painting!!I went to the commissary this morning. It was nice out when I left but then it poured while I was driving. The rain was nice enough to stop when I had to go inside and leaving the commissary and loading up the car it was nice too. Then on the way home it poured again. No lines at all today - I was in and out in no time at all. :-)

Had some lunch when I got home and then baked some whole wheat bread in the bread machine and made a cheese cake for tomorrow when Cheryl, Kathy, and maybe Bonnie come over for a visit.

Cleaned up the kitchen, I really make a mess when I bake, did a bit of housework and then sat down and read for while.

After supper we went out and Ken finally found a couple pairs of shoes that he liked. I also got another new pair. :-)

We watched another episode of McCleod's Daughter's to give it one more try and decided we aren't going to watch this series. Ice cream was our snack of choice this evening and I also got some knitting done.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Pleasant dreams all.
Happyone :-)


  1. It DOES look like a water color! I'm looking forward to seeing you and Cheryl tomorrow.

  2. Be careful -- bird's nest usually are full of mites!

  3. What sort of bird would have made a nest that small? Love the picture of the crane, there was one here a few days ago, I didn't see it but have seen photos of it.

  4. It really did look like a painting...it should be framed it's so unique and pretty.

    At least you've figured out that you're not going to waste your time with that series. It's like books...too many good ones to waste time on ones you don't enjoy.

    Love your bird's nest! They are darling little treasures.

  5. Oh, I spray all found bird's nests and then place them in a sealed plastic bag for a couple of weeks before introducing them to the house.

  6. Just catching up after a busy week getting used to being back at work again. I like the fox picture. They do seem to have that habit of stopping and looking, before running away very quickly. Thanks for the mention of my blog.I just find it such a good way to keep in touch with ny spread out family and if things work out and we get to NZ it will be a lovely record of our life here in Devon.

  7. I also have found a bird nest like this - it is a fantastic work...and cute.
    The photo of the white crane is very nice and you are clever to photograph a fox too, I have never done that.

  8. Love the picture of the crane. Haven't seen any white ones in the Glade.

  9. I would be very happy if I found a sweet little nest like that while out walking. So cute.

    Your picture of the crane is very nice. They are such graceful looking birds.

  10. The picture of the crane is beautiful -- I like the reflection in the water and the way it looks when enlarged. Thanks for sharing this.

  11. Your cheesecake was/is amazing. Great seeing you today!
