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

Baking Day

A walk around the lake in the rain for me this morning. It rained the whole time, but I took along my umbrella and wore my rain slicker and rain pants so stayed warm and dry. There were a few other people out as well, but not many. The deer, ducks and geese didn't seem to mind the rain either. I took 13,074 steps on this mornings walk.
Here just a picture I took while walking.

I was going to clean this morning but just never got around to it. I ended up reading and knitting.

By afternoon I really didn't feel like cleaning but I did feel like baking so that's what I did. As I listened to George Guidall read Foreign Body by Robin Cook to me I baked three loaves of Pumpkin Bread (my recipe makes three) and Chocolate Chip cookies.
After the baking was done I knitted a white square while George finished reading me the book. I thought the book was a good one. Jennifer Hernandez goes to New Delhi after her grandmother dies there after having hip replacement surgery. She uncovers a series of deaths.

I thought about not going to my knitting group this evening because it was still raining out and I hate to drive in the rain in the dark. But then I thought I've been home all day and it would be nice to get out for awhile and I shouldn't let a little rain keep me home so out I went. I stopped off at the library on my way there to drop off a couple of things but it was closed for Veterans Day. I'll have to make that trip again tomorrow.
I'm glad I went to the knitting group. Nice to see my knitting friends. :-) I just knitted on a dish cloth because they are easy and I didn't have to count stitches.
Its nice to be back home now though where its dry and warm.
I'll watch a little television and then read until I go to bed.

I hope you all had a good Wednesday and even if it was raining outside you found your own sunshine.
Karen :-)

  4. Pumpkin bread and chocolate chip cookies. Just the aroma would be enough to get me salivating!

  5. It was a good day to make soup. If I had baked, I would have eaten the goods. So....

    Isn't today so nasty. I'm at Borders, overlooking the parking lot, and it's just awful. I'm sure you walked anyway.

  6. I hope one of those three breads is for me ;-)

  7. Ken - yes and you can have some cookies too. :-)

  8. Sometimes filling the house with the sweet smells of pumpkin bread and cookies also fills the soul!
