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 short post

Though I didn't do all that much today, my day was a good one. As most days, I started it off with a morning walk. It was quite cool out this morning, but the sun came out and it was a nice crisp Fall morning. I walked around the lake once again.

I spent the day at home. Got the rest of my house cleaning done, read and knitted. In the afternoon it warmed up a bit and I got to sit out on the deck for a while. I love looking up at the bright blue sky.

I'll have my usual evening at home with my snack, television, and reading. I haven't decided yet on cookies or ice cream. Decisions decisions!!!

Just a short post today.
I hope your Thursday was a happy one.

Karen :-)
Learning to live in the present moment is part of the path of joy.


  1. ms. karen, i am sorry that i haven't been down here in a while. i am deeply saddened by the plight my country is in after the flooding it experienced over the weekend, something that has not happened in more than 20 years. i had blogged about links to the philippine red cross and pray that you visit my site and ask if you could kindly post a short article directing your readers to my url so they can read my blog about the catastrophe as well. i am now trying to get the red cross links to indonesia so i can spread it across the blogworld, too. thank you so much. i don't know how to repay the kindness i ask. God bless, ms. karen.~~~~my url is http://cheriedecastro.blogspot.com

  2. The flooding your guest mentions sounds terrible, now add the recent quakes and tidal waves elsewhere.

  3. We are enjoying cool, crisp mornings here too and after the long hot summer I find them most welcome. It sounds to me like you accomplished quite a bit. Although, that was a pretty big decision you had to make at the end of the day :-)

  4. It's always nice to hear from you, short or not. Great quote of the day.

  5. I'm glad you had a good day and I'm sure you made a good decision concerning cookies and ice cream.

  6. You are so sagacious about your eating habits!!

  7. That must have been a nice day.
