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 cool cloudy morning for a my walk today. I went around the lake.

I listened to the rest of The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare by Lilian Jackson Brown, read by George Guidall while I cleaned the kitchen. These books are a bit on the silly side but I enjoy listening to them. This was book number 8 in the series.

I also finished reading Daniel X by James Patterson which I didn't like at all.
I only kept reading it because it was just a little book. Its about Daniel who is an alien hunter from outer space who is trying to the save the world from other aliens who are trying to take over the world. It was totally unbelievable!!! The book was more like a short story. I usually like James Patterson but this was really bad.

I have put the new book, The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown on reserve at the library. I'm number 235 on the list.
I'm now down to number 106 for South of Broad by Pat Conroy.

Today is Wednesday and my knitting group night which is called Sip and Knit. I left home early again and had supper there too. This is the forth time I've gone now and I'm remembering some names. I've sat with different people each time I've gone. Everyone is very friendly and I really enjoy the night of knitting and talking. I'm working on my next ripple afghan.
Here are a couple of pictures I took this evening.
As you can see we take up the whole back of Panera's.

I just got home a little while ago.
I'm off to watch a bit of television and have some chocolate chip cookies and milk for my snack.

I hope you enjoyed your Wednesday.

Karen :-)
A good example is the best sermon.


  1. Hi Karen

    I usually like Patterson's books because they are suspenseful and I can finish one in a few days, but I'll avoid this one!

    Isn't it amazing how Dan Brown's books are immediate best sellers? He seems to have the right formula.

    Your kniting group is large! It does look like everyone is busy. It must be fun!

  2. Thanks for the book review. I'll not waste my time on this one. I recently read a Patricia Cornwell book that was not worth bothering with but can't remember the title.

    I was surprised to see the man in the knitting class.

  3. I thought of you last night. It's such a great community of people that meet there. Did you sit next to someone new?

  4. Dot - he is the only man and he's been knitting for 25 years!

    Cheryl - I sat with Karen again and a new woman I met named Liz. Both in their 20's!!

  5. I am looking forward to reading Pat Conroy's new book too. I think he is a wonderful author.
    Your knitting group looks like a big group. I have to admit that the first person I noticed was the man. How interesting that he has been knitting for so long.

    Thanks for your prayers on my sister's behalf. I am happy to tell you that her surgery was a success.

  6. Was thinking of coming over to Panera's last night, but had the baby.
    Saw Taryn yesterday at Mason's -- she is so sweet!
    SOUTH OF BROAD is a wonderful book and well worth the wait. I started Dan Brown's book, and it, too, is excellent.
