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

Hanging out with Taryn

A pretty chilly morning today as I walked around the lake. It was great walking weather and lots of people were out taking advantage of it. I saw more than a few people with cameras on tripods taking pictures of the pretty Fall trees. Lots of geese swimming around on the lake as well as flying above making their honking noise. I think we woke up them too early!
A picture of the path I walk along going to the lake.
Yesterday afternoon I picked up my granddaughter Taryn and we went to Joanne's to look at wool and just browse around the store. We also went to Walmart and I bought an air mattress and pump. Since Taryn was also spending the night she was the first to try it out . At home we got the mattress out of the box and after much laughter finally got the mattress filled with air. :-)

It was sunny yesterday afternoon and though it was a bit on the cool side Taryn and I sat out on the deck in the sun and did some knitting while we chatted. When it got too chilly we walked across the street and got some Chinese take away and had that for supper.

We watched some television and had both ice cream and cookies. :-)

When Taryn got up this morning I made us pancakes for breakfast and we knitted a bit more and just hung out. I drove her back home in the afternoon. It was great just hanging out together.

I finished knitting the baby blanket.
I will bring it to the knitting group on Wednesday and Lin will pack it up with all the other knitted items that the others have knitted and give them to the charity group.

After supper I did some reading and then made a few weave-it squares.
Next up is some evening television viewing and eating chocolate chip cookies.

I hope this Monday was a good start to your week.
Karen :-)
