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

Our nice sunny days are now gone. A cloudy day with some drizzle, but when I walked this morning it was just cloudy. I went along the paths around the neighborhoods. Saw the usual deer and a few people out walking dogs.

I took a drive and stopped at Weis to get some ice cream. It was on sale 2 for $5 so I got my favorite chocolate chip and also just plain chocolate. Later on for my snack I'm going to have both flavors. I might even put a dollop of whipped cream on top. :-)

This afternoon I made chocolate chip cookies and put them in the freezer. I always like to have some on hand. And no I didn't eat any but I did eat some of the cookie dough!

I did my usual reading and knitting. The baby blanket is now 29 inches long, with 13 more inches to go. I'll be working on those 13 inches later while I watch an episode of A Touch of Frost which came in the mail today from Netflix.

I thought about going across the street for pizza but I stayed home and had a salad and baked potato for dinner instead.

A short post today and I've mentioned food quite a few times in it. :-)

I hope your Friday was happy for you and a good start for your weekend.
Till next time.....
Karen :-)

  1. I am in awe of your willpower. I could never, ever make chocolate chip cookies and not eat at least one or two ... maybe even three :)
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. I must admit that I have a fondness for chocolate chip cookie dough myself. My mother would let us have a bite when she made chocolate chip cookies.
