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 picnic

I was a bit chilly this morning when I started walking but after a few blocks I warmed up. A great morning for walking!! I walked along the paths in the neighborhoods. Saw the usual deer and bunnies. Heard lots of crows making a racket in a tree and looked down and saw the reason for all their noise - a fox right under the tree. He ran away as I got closer - didn't get a picture.
Walked my usual 6 miles.

Ken and I went for a ride in his yellow Vette today. We packed a picnic lunch and set off. We drove to a park about 70 miles away and found this little spot to have our picnic. We ate ham and cheese sandwiches and had pieces of cut up watermelon for dessert. It was a nice little outing.

Didn't feel like cooking tonight so we had supper at Olive Garden. I could make a meal on the salad and bread sticks they serve there. LOVE those bread sticks. I limit myself to one of them.

No ice cream left in the house so before we came home we stopped at Weis and got a good supply in. Ice cream was on sale - 2 for $5 - so we bought 6 of them!!! That should last us a while!!
Here's our ice cream shelf in the freezer. Nothing like a well stocked freezer. :-)Of course ice cream was our snack tonight.

Hope all is well in your part of the world and your Friday was a good one.
Happyone :-)
Instead of living in the shadow of yesterday,
walk in the light of today and the hope of tomorrow.


  1. I love hearing about the things you and Ken do together. A 70 mile trip for a picnic? What an adventure.

    Enjoy this beautiful day. What are your plans?

  2. Cannot believe you can limit yourself to one breadstick!! What willpower! We at last night at Looney's in Maple Lawn for the first time. It's my new favorite place!! Dick had a shrimp club that was huge and wonderful.

  3. What a grand picnic! As soon as it stops raining up here, I'm going on a picnic, too. I am. I so am.

    You two are smart bringing in your ice cream. We've been going out for ours nearly every night and it's very expensive that way. Of course, with our way, John doesn't have to be concerned about my roaring my way through a half gallon of ice cream. %}

  4. Sounds like a wonderful day :) The picninc was a good idea.

  5. So much ice cream? That is not good for you. lol

  6. I'm very impressed that you can stop at one of Olive Garden's bread sticks! Betsy impresses me when she stops at two, but you're the first person I know who could stop at one. It looks as if you had a wonderful picnic.
