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

A nice 6 mile walk around the lake this morning. A few people scattered about here and there doing their walking or running. Deer, rabbits, cardinals, ducks and geese were around too.
A hill of geese.One stopped and wanted his picture taken.A cloudy morning but still a beautiful sky.
Remember me mentioning that I bought raspberry chocolate chips from Ann's House of Nuts? Well, today I made Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies. I had to taste one and it was oh so good. I can't wait to try the mint chips next. I'll wait until the raspberry ones are gone. I still have some of the white chocolate chip cookies left.

It was a sunny day but very windy. It's supposed to be bringing some more cold winter weather with it.

Ken is working late tonight so I made Baked Ziti and its sitting in the oven with tin foil over it. When he gets home I'll take off the foil, and turn on the oven. By the time he gets changed supper will be ready. If it gets to be too late I think maybe I'll go ahead and eat. I'm already a bit hungry. :-)

Now I think I'll go and knit awhile.

This weeks seems to moving along fast. Hope your Thursday was a good one.
Happyone :-)
