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

This morning when I got up it was dark and raining. I waited for a while and started walking at 7:30 when it was a least light out. I put on my rain gear and off I went. It was just a light rain but during my walk the rain stopped though it did stay cloudy and dreary. Eventually the dreary day turned into a sunny one.
Here's a video I took while walking.

I finally made it to the lake and walked around it with no more detours! Only a few people out walking so I had the lake practically to myself.
I ended up walking just over 7 miles because of the back tracking I had to do.
Last night after dinner we went to see the United States Air Force Band play at a local high school. We asked our dinner friends if they wanted to go with us and they said no. Well, they sure missed a great show. It was excellent. The band and the singers were great and we had a wonderful time!! They got our feet dancing, hands clapping and put smiles on all our faces. Picture is not so great, but it's the best I could get.I finished knitting the scarf for my friend. I think she will be surprised! I will be giving it to her in the next few days. :-)
Knitting night as arrived once again. Tonight I will be starting on some tiny slippers to go along with the tiny hats I've been making for Bonnie's Project.

I hope your are enjoying your Wednesday.

Karen :-)
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything,
They just make the most of everything.


  1. Somehow I got behind in visiting blogs this week, but I see that you have made your daily walks (and then some) while I was gone. I'm impressed by the wildlife you see along the way. The concert sounds as if it was really something.

  2. I sometimes have trouble putting my videos on my blog, too. Not quite sure what's up with that.

    The finished scarf turned out nice; looks soft and warm.

    Glad you were able to attend the concert. I'd love it if we'd have something different like that around here. Our holiday concerts are the same productions every year. Nice, but need a change.

  3. I also waited some time before my walk this morning because of the dark.
    I love that you put a video in your blog and I like to hear your voice.
    I am sure your friend will be happy about the scarf.
    Have a nice day :)

  4. Looks like you've had lots of rain there too. We finally had a beautiful day yesterday and much colder today. I hope to get out and walk some today too. Love your video.
    Have a good weekend :)

  5. The scarf is so pretty. I loved your video. Stay dry and warm. Merry Christmas!!!

  6. How fun to walk with you vis video...and to hear your voice. Love your accent...definitely not Canadian.

    I have had no luck in putting video clips on 'blogger'. Apparently one can post them to you tube...then use the embedded code...but that all seems like to much work.

    Your scarf is beautiful...lucky friend!

  7. Wow, you did have a lot of rain, from what you show on your video. Does that stream ever get so flooded that the paths are completely underwater? Looks like the water was moving rather swiftly.

  8. We've had snow--looks like you're having rain! Love visiting your blog--always so upbeat!

  9. Lindy, I'm told that at times that yes the paths are completely underwater, but I've never seen it. I've only been living in the neighborhood for the past year though.

  10. I see you are blessing somebody else with your knitting talents. The scarf is really pretty. I like the colors you chose. I can't believe how fast you knit (& read). I enjoyed your video. It was nice to hear your voice.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
