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

Still more rain

Here we go again - another rainy day. Walked in a misty rain this morning. Looked like it was going to clear but it never did. By late afternoon rain was falling again!!

I worked some on the counted cross stitch. I find I cannot sit and do that for long periods of time like I used to. My eyes aren't what they used to be. I have a pair of strong magnifying glasses that I wear but after a while I get a headache and have to quit for a while. It doesn't help that this project is done on 16 count either. I can manage though if I just do an hour at a time. I still don't have enough done on it to post a picture, but I will one of these days.

Taryn (granddaughter) needed a ride to work this afternoon so I dropped by and picked her up and off to work she went. It's nice to have a little time with her. She still loves her job and really like those tips! :-)

I was looking out the front window early this evening and saw a Heron fly by - how cool is that!! Then walked to the back and looked out the window and saw four Canada geese fly by all in a row!! They must have been on their way to the lake.

Last night we watched Bramwell and that finished up all 4 seasons and the series. This was the series about a woman doctor in England who opens up a hospital for the poor. It was very good except for the last two episodes which were season 4. I didn't like the ending to it at all!!!! They should have ended the whole series with season 3!

Tonight we watched A Touch of Frost while having ice cream for our snack. I did some knitting on the ripple afghan and now I'll read for a while.

A wet Tuesday but I'm happy it isn't snow and ice.
I hope you found some bits of happiness scattered throughout your day!
Happyone :-)


  1. I met Taryn last week and saw her again yesterday -- such a sweet girl! She seems very happy in her new job.
    Well the sun is out right now -- who knows how long that will last! We'll see.

  2. We have had a wet week here too. I'm so glad I got my flowers planted on Sunday as I'm sure they are benefitting from the rain.

    Glad to hear you granddaughter is still enjoying her job.

    Have a great day.

  3. We are on day two of rain and I am already tired of it. So, I can imagine how old this is getting for you!

    I have the same problem doing needlework anymore. I have the stronger glasses, but get headaches in short order. Good that you have figured out your time limit. I wait until I get a headache and a backache. =D

    Don't think that I've ever seen a heron in flight, but I sure would like to. That must've been pretty cool.

    Taryn's blessed to have a grandmother on call. I know that my kids have always been.

  4. I netflixed the Ides of May that you talked about a while ago, Really intersting series. The writing sure was different even for a british show. It was fun to see - oh what is her name! - the zeta jones woman - anyway - she was SO young!
