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 typical day

Ken back to work today. It was a nice long weekend. I usually wake up around 6 or so but yesterday I woke up at 7:20!! That is late for me. I also skipped my walk!! I don't do that very often either.

In the morning we went over to Debbi's house again and repaired a small part the fence in her yard.
The paving of the road I am happy to say was completed yesterday. Now we can once again come and go easily. The workers will be back once again when they have to do the final paving of the streets in by all the townhouses.
By the way they are still building townhouses here. They have finished three more rows - a 4 unit, a 7 unit and a 8 unit and people have started moving in. They are on the other side and away from us. Soon they will be building a row of 4 units right across the street from my house.

Today I was back to my usual walk and walked my "connect the path" route. I saw LOTS of deer and cardinals, the fox, a ground hog, ducks and geese. It was a cold morning with a temperature of only 30 degrees but the sun was shining and it warmed up to the 50's later in the day.

Food supply getting low so I made a list and went the commissary. Bit of a line today and had to wait about 1/2 hour on the line.
Put everything away, had a late lunch, did my exercise tape, got a little house cleaning done, and then sat down to read for a little while.

Supper is over now and soon it will be time to watch a Bramwell episode and have a snack. Cookies and tea is my choice for tonight. I'll probably knit and then read again. I'm reading the third book in the Twilight series.

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


  1. We had long lines at the grocery store today as well. I wonder if it has anything to do with Easter coming up? It warmed up here today as well, so perhaps Spring is now here to stay.

  2. I can't believe you not only slept late but skipped your walk too!

  3. I love how 7:20 is sleeping in for you. :)

  4. I am truly enjoying your pictures and descriptions of your life. I love and am a little jealous of the place you have to walk. Good for you!
