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

Saturday, August 8, 2009


Not a great day for me. My life has changed somewhat for a while but I'm hoping it will be back to normal again soon.

I kept busy today. Started the day with my usual morning walk, and had pancakes for my breakfast. I topped them off with some whipped cream. :-)

I decided to change the living room furniture around and gave the room a good cleaning which took up a good part of the day. Didn't move the book shelves or television, but everything thing else got a new location. I do enjoy a change every so often. It must run in the family because my mother and both of my kids are the same way too.

I had time to read quite a lot of my book and I also knitted. I watched an episode of Touch of Frost and had four chocolate chip cookies for my snack. I've decided NOT to watch any more of In Treatment. It's a pretty depressing show and I'm not even crazy about any of the people.

I think I'll go and do some more reading now.
I hope you enjoyed your Saturday.
Happyone :-)
When the road you’re traveling seems difficult...
Say a prayer and God will do the rest.


  1. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

  2. hi, ma'am, i hope you'll feel all better in the morning. we like pancaked for breakfast, too! i think i'll make some in the morning - and i like tweaking the furniture aound, too, for a bit of change. take some rest.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't have a good day and hope that things change for the best.

    It also sounds like you had a busy day with all that furniture moving. Change is good for the soul sometimes - a stepping stone to brighter days.

    "When the road you’re traveling seems difficult...
    Say a prayer and God will do the rest."

    My prayers for you are on the way, my friend! Rest well tonight!

    Hugssss Susan

  4. My happy friend....I will say a little prayer for you tonight so things will be back to normal for you very soon. Sometimes the little ups and downs of our lives help us to stay focused on what's really important....even though we'd much rather have the ups than the downs. Big hugs.

  5. Karen, I'm here if you need me.

  6. Hi HappyOne - I hope that today is happier and that whatever is going on your life right now, it will just be a little speedbump. Art

  7. Sorry to hear that you weren't having a great day. I sincerely hope things get back to normal for you soon. You will be in my thoughts.

    I understand about moving things around in the house. I find it to be therapeutic. Sometimes changing things around a bit can give me a fresh outlook on my day.

  8. Thanks for your honesty and for being so open. Sometimes we have to work hard and as you say, trust that normalcy will return. There's a reason for everything, don't you think? Hang in there. xoxo. Bon
    P.S. I have your soap dish :-) Can't wait to give it to you.

  9. Thank you all for the kind words, prayers and thoughts. It means a lot. :-)

  10. Oh, I hope it will be soon you see the other side of the tunnel.
    Take care.

  11. Oh Happy One...I hope your happiness returns soon!

  12. It makes me sad to see Happy One unhappy, sending you a hug! Love you, Pamie

  13. I will be praying for you. I hope your life gets back to normal very soon.
