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 lazy sunny day

A walk around the lake started my day. Stopped to talk to my walking friend Jeanne for about 15 minutes, so I got home a bit late. While I was walking my friend Lin called so I got to walk and talk to her too. A beautiful morning for walking and the whole rest of the day was another day like yesterday. Lots of sunshine and blue skies.

Cheryl was in the area and stopped by for lunch. We ate the left over chili from the other day. After lunch we sat outside on the deck and chatted about this and that.

After Cheryl left I stayed out on the deck knitting and reading. It was just too nice to do any work, so I just enjoyed the sunny day.

I'm looking forward to watching Flash Forward this evening. I will have popcorn for my snack tonight. The only thing wrong with popcorn is that it gets in your teeth!! More knitting and reading for me tonight as well.

I hope your Thursday was as sunny as mine was.
Karen :-)

  1. Glad you had a good day, Karen. I love this weather and even managed to get in a mini-hike today, despite working. Art

  2. I'm glad you had a sunny day to enjoy. It was cloudy here in Tennessee and rain is coming our way. It looks like it will be a couple of days before we see the sun again.

  3. A beautiful sunny day here too. After planting flowers I just enjoyed sitting outside soaking in the beauty. Glad you enjoyed your day and also were able to share part of it with friends and popcorn :-)

  4. Hey Karen,

    Great to know that you are enjoying the sun... It is pretty chilly here in the morning but once the sun is out, the weather takes a total turn around. Even at mid- noon it remains warm and balmy unlike the summers.... love to see the sun these days....


  5. I have the same problem with pop corn ...but I do love it. as it's low cal and filling :-) We have a Net Flix to watch tonight..I ahven't even opened it as I want it to be a surprise..lol..it may be an Itlain movie as my husband enjoyes them and i do too as long as I can keep up with the subtitles..lol

    I'd love to try your 3 loaf pumpkin bread recipe! Is it written somewhere in your blog? I double and triple my recipe at times, with success, when I wan to make more to give away.
