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

Back Home

Just a short post to say we are back home safe and sound from our fantastic holiday cruise.
Here is the last picture taken from our veranda 6:35 this morning. We are back in Baltimore.
Leaving the ship was quite easy because we carried all our own luggage off. We called Debbi and she came to pick us up. There was no place to wait inside and it was COLD waiting in 27 degrees after the warm 80's that we had been in. A very nice man waiting for his people let us sit in his car to get warm waiting for Debbi to get there. :-)

It was a great cruise but so nice to get home again.
Google Reader tells me I have 240 posts waiting for me to read. It will take me a while but I'll be over to read all of your blogs.
Thanks for all the comments while I've been away. :-)

Have a great Saturday!!
Happyone :-)


  1. I just commented on your last post....I guess I'm somewhat behind. Glad you're home safe and sound with some wonderful memories. Can't wait to see some great pictures (as yours always are). I'm spending the day just vegging...watching movies mostly. Its just too bitterly cold outside to do much else. You'll sleep well tonight....nothing like your own bed!

  2. Not much going on here so I give you permission to skate past quickly. There's no way that you want to spend time catching up on everything, even though I am still trying.

    Thanks for the post to say you're home. It's good to think of you all nestled in and cozy. Hope it doesn't take too long to get used to the cold again.

  3. Welcome home. I agree with you that it is always nice to be home again after a trip. Although, it may take a bit of adjusting to the temperature difference.
    Happy New Year!!

  4. Glad you are home safe and sound!! And Glad you had a wonderful time.
    Happy New Year!!

  5. Welcome home!! So glad you enjoyed your cruise. It must have been interesting watching the ship take out part of the pier!

  6. That is a beautiful sunrise you had this morning. Glad you are back in familiar surroundings. I'm sure 27 degrees was quite the shock after 80 degrees. It was very nice of that man to let you wait in his car. The kindness of strangers.

  7. So glad to hear that the both of you are home safe and sound and the trip was wonderful. Looking forward to hearing and seeing all about your cruise.

  8. Welcome back Karen (and Ken)!!

  9. Welcome back! I'm glad that you had such a great time on your cruise. We have made one cruise to the Carribbean and loved it. After hearing about your trip I think I'm ready for another.

  10. Glad your back safe and sound. I want to see lots more wonderful pictures.
