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

Home Again

I left Thursday morning, after my walk, for Pennsylvania to my parents house. Enjoyed my ride up there, no traffic and things went smoothly. I tried listening to the audio book and once again I just couldn't concentrate on the story so I ended up listening to music.

My parents took me for ride up to the top of one of the mountains and I took this picture looking a long way down at Altoona far in the distance. The day was a bit hazy so the picture isn't very clear.

On Friday it rained all day long and that day we went to browse around a furniture store which I loved!! It had all country furniture with lots of cool country decorations. We went just to look and my parents ended up buying two new chairs. People who know my mom will get a chuckle because she is always buying new chairs - she has a thing about chairs. :-) Now that she has two new chairs, the problem is what to do with the old ones (which look like new). Problem solved - I get two new chairs!! Thanks Mom and Dad!! Kenny and I will take a ride up there soon to pick up my two new chairs. :-) Two chairs just wouldn't fit in the Vette!

My Dad got a model ship kit to build. He needed a place to be able to build his model where he would be able to leave it all out and not have to put everything away each time he was done for the day. So he built this hobby table. You can see the picture of the ship hanging up on the wall.
This picture his him working on the ship.

Just a couple of pictures of their yard.

I left this morning for home. I drove through on and off showers. Not heavy, just enough to make my car very dirty. It will be getting a wash one day soon!!

We had a very nice visit. Talked, laughed, knitted and just enjoyed the time we got to spend together.

I spent some time with Kenny today. We did a few errands, stopped at Rita's for ice cream and had Chinese for dinner. :-)

I am way behind in blog reading and will stop by to visit you all tomorrow.

I hope your days have been happy ones.
Karen :-)
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
