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

Christmas in June

I started the day out as usual with my morning walk. Another hot day and I walked on a couple of paths and on streets. I was going to have a shorter walk today but ended up walking 5.9 miles anyway. :-) It's hard to cut it short!!!

I made us French Toast for breakfast instead of the pancakes we usually make on Saturday. Then later in the morning we left to do some errands.
Stopped in at the library. Just dropped a few things off. I didn't get anything out because I'm still reading books that I've already checked out.

It was Christmas in June for me today!! :-)
First we went to Best Buy and I got the new Sims3 game for my computer. My granddaughter Taryn has it and loves playing it. Ken got one too and I've been watching him play it and it looked like so much fun that I decided to get one too. The time seems to fly by when playing that. Just what I need - something else to keep me busy. :-)

We went to the mall and I got a few new kitchen tools. After watching Lidia's Italy so much and starting to cook like her I just had to have a few of the kitchen tools she uses.
Tongs - so much easier to use than a fork for turning things over. The food always slips off my fork.
A Spider - comes in handy to lift the different kinds of pasta out of the water.
A dough cutter - great for cutting the dough into smaller pieces for rolls. Also for picking up lots of diced vegetables at one time.

Next stop was the Apple Store and I got a brand new MacBook Pro computer. Lucky me!!
And then I needed something to carry it around in so I got this Vera Bradley computer tote!
When we got home I set up the new mac and got the Sims3 installed and I was ready to get started.
This is my first Sims3 person I created on my new computer. :-)
After supper we took our stroll around the neighborhood, checking out the work that got done today and picking up more nails.

Watched a Netflix (London Blitz), had some ice cream and knitted. Then back to playing Sims3 and here I am now at just past 11:30. I'll be going to bed as soon as I'm finished. Good-Night all.

I hope you had a fun Saturday.
Happyone :-)


  1. I'll say that it was Christmas in June! The kitchen tools are nice, but that MacBook Pro has me drooling.

  2. Wow! What a great day for the economy!!! :)

  3. Haha, you're living large! Hope you enjoy the game as much as I am!

  4. What a great day you had. Getting a new computer and a Vera bag to put it in, also a game and new kitchen tools. I know that the next computer I get will be a MAC. I never heard of the new Sims game that you bought. What kind of game is it?

    Enjoy all your new things.

  5. Don't ya just love Christmas no matter when it happens? The kitchen tools are nice and really practical. I love my dough cutter. I've never used an Apple but may switch next time I get new computers. Also, I love the Vera - that's one of my favorite patterns.

  6. What a day! What great toys!!!
