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

Pizza Night

A nice morning walk around the lake was the start of my day. I've been noticing that the sun isn't rising as early as it was. Soon I'll be watching the sun rise again during my walks.

Did house work today and also got the basket of shredding done that was over flowing.

It was a quiet day at home again. I got more reading done and started another white sampler square.

I enjoyed the evening going out for pizza with a friend and afterwards we went to Rita's for a gelati. I got chocolate with raspberry lemonade - I think that's my favorite.

We had a thunder storm this evening and got some well needed rain. I did miss sitting out on the deck till dark again though. I love sitting out on the deck watching it get dark.

I was hoping to get another Netflix in the mail today but it didn't come, so I watched a couple episodes of Seinfeld. Since I had a gelati at Rita's I wasn't going to have a snack but I ended up eating a Black and White anyway. I have to splurge once in a while. :-)

I hope this Tuesday was a day of sunshine for you.
Happyone :-)
You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you never know when it will be too late.


  1. Mmmm, pizza and then chocolate gelati. Yummy! Sounds like it was a fun evening out.

    Do you ever watch the 'instant' Netflix on your computer? I do that sometimes if I'm in between movies and there's nothing I want to see on TV.

    Glad you got rain. We've kind of dried out again. Now it's just humid.

  2. We need some rain here!

    I've never had a gelati before...maybe I'll need to put that on my list for the weekend :)

  3. I like your quote. It's always too late for the ones we miss and the thought can never replace the action.

  4. Those black and whites sound really good. Wish I had one!

  5. Sounds like a great day! Last night, I met a friend for a beer after work and we were talking about what fun it would be to do an inn to inn walking tour of Scotland, and I was thinking about you and your trips.

    I was out at 5:15 to walk 4 miles this morning, and was it muggy! had to have bee 80 degrees!

    Enjoy the day, HappyOne! Art

  6. We've noticed it getting dark earlier, since we have to bring in some of the bird feeders to keep them away from the night critters. We could use some of your rain down here this week.

  7. Every time you mention Rita's I make a mental note to try it as we have one nearby and then I forget about it. Well, I am putting it on my to do list as it sounds so good. Hopefully this weekend.

    I enjoy sitting outside after dinner too.

  8. Sounds like a good evening, pizza and a trip to Rita's. We have a Rita's right here in West Milford.

    I agree, it seems to be getting darker earlier.
