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 walk, a friend, and new shoes

Even though it was a chilly 29 degree walk this morning, the sun was out, there was no wind and by the time I got back home it was about 50!! I saw 14 deer - 8 of them in one group!
It's so nice seeing all the green starting to show up along the paths. :-)Today while I did my ironing I started listening to the recorded CD book that I got out of the library on Saturday. It's called The Cat Who Could Read Backwards by Lillian Jackson Braun. It's a mystery read by George Guidall. I am surprised to say I am enjoying it!! I think the reason why I didn't like the other books I've tried to listen to is because I didn't like the people's reading voices. The other books have been read by women. I think I prefer to listen to men reading the books.

Cheryl came by today and we ate left over pizza for lunch. I was making a loaf of bread so we got to have a piece of fresh bread with butter too. :-) We had lots to talk about like we always do. :-) It's nice when you have a friend that is easy to talk to, when you don't feel like you have to think up things to say. Someone you feel comfortable with. I'm happy to say that Cheryl is my friend and one of my many blessings.

I didn't feel like it but after Cheryl left I did my exercise tape.
Then it was time to start supper. I made Baked Ziti and used four different kinds of cheeses (Fontina, Parmesan, Ricotta, & Mozzarella) and a salad to go with it.

Both of us need a new pair of shoes and after supper we went to Kohls. Ken usually finds shoes there but no luck this time. I didn't see anything I liked either. We then went to Off Broadway to try our luck there. No luck for Ken there either but I found a pair I liked. It is just a simple slip on shoe but very comfortable. :-)

No Netflix tonight - we watched a couple episodes of Seinfield. Elaine is my favorite character - I love her expressions.

This Monday is ending with rain and it's supposed to be like this for the next two days. Well, it's better than snow!! :-)

Hope you enjoyed your Monday.
Happyone :-)


  1. It sounds like you had a great day with your walk and your friend. It's good to see the green along your path. I hope you don't get too much rain over the next couple of days.

  2. I think having a friend that you can be totally comfortable with and have easy conversation with is truly a blessing.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your CD book. I'll have to try that when I'm ironing. I'm sure it would make the job go by faster.

    Have a great week.

  3. I've never tried the cd books but I think I'd prefer the man's voice too.

  4. It is a raw day, isn't it? But I bet you walked today, too! Good friends are blessings, aren't they?

  5. I'm really glad we're friends. Fate brought us together.
