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

Not much of anything

It wasn't actually raining when I walked around the lake this morning but it was cloudy and a bit foggy. We did get a peek at the sun for a short while but then the clouds came back and yes more rain came down. It's raining right now.

I finished reading Dead Man's Puzzle by Parnell Hall.
There is not much to say about this book. I didn't like it much. Couldn't get interested in the characters or the story. I'm surprised I even read the whole thing. A book I would NOT recommend.

I was up in the loft for part of the day and did a little cross stitching.

We went out for pizza for supper.
For my snack tonight I had Chocolate chip mint ice cream - nice having the mint for a change.
A pretty quiet day and didn't really do much of anything.

Hope you had lots to smile about today.
Happyone :-)


  1. I rode up to Glyndon, MD, to pick up heirloom tomatoes that I ordered. I've got mine in their pots already -- the rest are for my kids.
    And it CERTAINLY is raining again. It's pounding on our roof right now. Wish I could send some of this to the people in Santa Barbara who are experiencing the wild fires.

  2. This weather has been depressing. I'm glad I've been working! Waiting on the repair man, then maybe off to buy some plants? Hope it's a good day for you :))

  3. Oh yuck. Enough rain already. Have you analyzed why you kept on reading a book you weren't enjoying? Cuz that would be interesting and especially so since that's not your usual philosophy. Hope that the sun comes out for you guys today!

  4. Vee - I had read the other books in the series and liked them. I guess I was hoping that it would get better. It's not a long book so it didn't take long to read. You're right I usually don't finish a book I don't like.

  5. Hmm... I have never heard of that book or author, but I guess I'm not missing anything.

    We had more rain today too and I'm ready for a break from it.

    Mint chocolate chip is one of my favorites.
