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 New Project

Once again it was a beautiful morning for my walk. I didn't walk the whole extra mile today but I did walk 6.7 miles. I saw Sal again but we were going in opposite directions this time so just stopped for a short chat.

I got an email from the organizer of the knitting group that I go to. She is asking all of the members if they would like to knit blankets, hats or sweaters for babies and donate them to the Family and Children's Service of Howard County. So I went through lots of knitting patterns this afternoon that I have saved to find a baby blanket pattern. I wanted to find something different that I haven't made before but wanted it to be easy and quick to make. I found one that I really liked and have started on it today. It has to be done sometime in November. So I've put aside my other projects until I finish this. As you can tell by the picture I've been knitting a lot today. :-)
It was warm enough to sit out back on the deck and that is where I did most of my knitting.

I did some laundry and just straightened the house up a bit and that was all I did besides knit.

I'll be doing even more knitting later when I watch a little television and have some cookies.
I'll do my reading just before bed.

I hope you got more done on your Tuesday than I did on mine. :-)
Karen :-)

  3. Hi Karen, I think about you often, too and have missed popping by for a visit. I'm glad to see that you are busy with projects and walking. Sometimes those quiet days are so needed.

  4. What a beautiful baby blanket -- you have gotten a lot done!

  5. I think your new project is great. Some family is really going to appreciate your work. What you've done so far looks beautiful.
