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.

Home today

A cold start when I first started out on my 6 mile walk around the lake this morning, but with all my layers on it didn't take long for me to warm right up. Not many people around the lake, only saw 4 other people. Three deer crossed the path right in front of me, one of them took one leap right over the path. A couple of rabbits were along side the path as well. Here the geese are all starting out across the lake. Notice the one white one amongst them.During the warmer weather very small boats are allowed on the water and there are usually a couple of fishermen on them. The boat ramp is closed now for the winter.

A nice time was had by all last night at my knitting group. Lots of people showed up and there were presents and cake for all. I received this sock yarn as my gift. Now I really do have to get started learning how to knit socks. I really like the color. I was pleasantly surprised last night when my daughter Debbi showed up. :-) She was the one who got me started going to the knit group and this was the first time she went since I started going.
I didn't get much knitting done on the baby hat, only knitted 8 rows!

I stayed home during the day for the first time this week. Got a few things done around the house. I was hoping to finish reading my book that's due at the library on Saturday but ran out of time. Hopefully I'll get some reading in later tonight.

When Ken gets home from work we are going to go out and do a few errands together and pick up a bite to eat for supper at Red Robins.

I hope this Thursday was a good one for you.
Happyone :-)

  1. It sounds as if you had a great day. We're getting ready for another taste of winter here in Tennessee -- I imagine the weather is heading your way as well.

  3. I think you'll be walking in the snow tomorrow! Are you ready? I'm going to fight the crazies at the store this morning and buy stew ingredients.
