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 Special Snack! :-)

Yesterday after church Ken picked me up and we went to PA to my parents house to pick up the two chairs. The sewing machine will have to wait for another trip because we just couldn't get it to fit in the FJ with the chairs. Didn't get to see my parents this time because they were in NY visiting friends this weekend.
We left at noon and the were back in the area a little after 6:00. Stopped and had pizza before bringing the chairs home.
Here they are in their new home.

Ken had a gift certificate for Michaels and bought me this selection of yarn. How thoughtful - Thanks Kenny. :-) I see more afghans!

It was so nice to see the sun this morning on my walk.
After 5 days of walking in the rain it felt wonderful.
A nice brisk Fall morning. The wooden foot bridges were quite slippery today.

A small part of the path around the lake was closed. So I took this detour.
Stopped to take a few pictures here and there and also to talk to a couple of walking friends. The topic of conversation was how nice it was that the rain had stopped.

Not much food left in the pantry so I made a trip to the commissary to stock up. Things went well - found all I needed and there were no lines! I got the makings for chili and got it started in the slow cooker. That will be for supper tomorrow. It always tastes better the next day.

Before getting to the commissary I made a stop at the WalMart I usually go to get some more of the cotton yarn I'm using for the baby blanket. They were all out of my color, so I went to another WalMart and was happy to find it there.
Now that I have more yarn, it was nice to be able to knit on the blanket for a while this afternoon.

I also went up in the loft again and worked on some more weave-it squares and before I knew it, it was time for supper already. I finished listening to The Cat Who Went Underground while making weave-its.

I had a breakfast for supper. I made myself pancakes! I had the works, syrup, strawberries, and whipped cream. :-)

The rest of the evening will be my usual. A little television while knitting and having my snack. A special snack tonight. I bought some Devil Dogs today and I'm going to have 2 of them. I am so looking forward to that. I can't remember the last time I ate Devil Dogs. Then there is reading another book and some blog reading.

I'm so happy that the sun came out today. I hope where you live you got to see the sun too.
Karen :-)
I am still determined to be cheerful and happy,
in whatever situation I may be;
for I have also learned from experience
that the greater part of our happiness or misery
depends upon our dispositions,
and not upon our circumstances.
- Martha Washington


  1. Those chairs make a nice, cozy addition to your home! Glad you were finally able to retrieve them.

  2. The chairs are great. We had sun today and I made suntea. It turned out pretty good. Not sure
    what Devil Dogs are except for Marines. My brothers CB handle is Devel Dog. Cause he is a Marine vet.But if they are choc. than they are good.

  3. I like the chairs a lot!
    We hand blueberry-banana pancakes for supper last night! What a coincidence!

  5. The chairs look really nice. In fact, they look brand new! I had to enlarge the picture to see if your table was like mine. I have one similar made from an old sewing machine.
    Oh, I want a devil dog!!

  6. I agree that pancakes sometimes make the perfect supper -- especially with strawberries. Enjoy the sunshine!

  7. Nice chairs! and LOVE that leaf covered pathway!

  8. The chairs are just perfect for your room. Lucky you to be able to get them from your Mom. What will you be sewing when you get her sewing machine?
