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

The sun has returned

Ah yesterday and today we are having lots of sunshine and blue skies. I only walked 4 1/2 miles yesterday morning. I ran out of time before I had to get ready to go to church. But today I was back up to a walk of 6.3 miles. No wind at all today. The lake was very calm like a sheet of glass. Lots of people out this morning, all enjoying a beautiful morning!!

Yesterday afternoon Ken and I went for a drive and ended up in the historic part of a town called Mt Airy. We walked around the town and went in a few of the shops that were open. We stopped here at Laurienzo and ate lunch outside and watched people walking by. It was a lovely afternoon!

Once we got back we sat out on the deck for a little while and then I made us lasagna for supper. Afterwards we watched an episode of Dexter from Netflex and then Ken left.

I read Going Gray by Anne Kreamer.Anne decides to quit dying her hair and go gray and wrote this book about it. She researched this whole gray hair thing with some quite surprising results. I found it fascinating since I have just grown my gray hair out this past year and a half.

I've started knitting some slippers for my two youngest grandkids. This first pair I'm working on is for Scout who is 6. I'm using one stand of purple and one of yellow. I hope she likes the colors.

Got a bit of house cleaning done today including a couple loads of laundry that I got to hang outside since it was so nice and sunny out.

I had a lot of blog reading to catch up on. Staying away for a couple of days and I really got behind. I'm glad to be caught up again.

I still have a bit of time before I start thinking about supper so I guess I'll go and read awhile.

I hope your Monday was a happy one.
Karen :-)
It’s never too late to live happily every after.


  1. We've had some gorgeous weather here in Tennessee the past couple of days. It's been a real pleasure to be outside.

  2. It is raining and we are going to have snow flurries tonight. Your day was much nicer. I love site seeing and finding new places to eat. Looks like alot of fun.

  3. It started to drizzle last night but it didn't continue for long.... But it's a great morning today

  4. I think the slippers will be lovely!!

  5. Hooray for the sun's return!! It appears that you made the most of it. Mt. Airy looks like a cute little town and how fun to eat lunch outside on a pretty day. I think your granddaughter is going to love her new slippers.

  6. I've never been to Mt. Airy. Good for you for exploring. Sunday was so beautiful!

    I just caught up on your posts, so I'll comment here. I can't believe how quickly you knitted the slippers. I was thinking I might like to knit some booties for Bonnie's project. Maybe you could teach me? I looked at some of the patterns and it shouldn't be hard.

    Did you see my picture of the heron I posted. Pretty cool that we both saw herons.

    I'll get in touch soon to catch up with you :)
