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 trip to the dentist

Another morning workout on the Wii and a walk around the house.
Here's today's morning picture during my workout.Sunrise 6:56
Sunset 5:48
Another 6 months has rolled around and it was time today for trip to the dentist for a cleaning. I have a great dentist and all went well. I do have to go back next week though and have an old silver filling replaced. I usually bring some chocolate chip cookies for my dentist (he has a sweet tooth) but I forgot to make them this time. I'll be sure to bring some next week. :-) There is no place for my car to park at the dentist yet because of the snow so Ken drove me and then dropped me off at the house again and went back to work.

Temperatures warming up nicely today and the sun was out too. I went outside and shoveled more of the pile of snow away from the sides of the bottom of the driveway. I had to use a square regular shovel - our snow shovel got too much use and the handle broke off.
There is a bit of a drop at the end of the driveway to the street and Ken had made a little ramp with wood so we could drive the Vetts down without scraping. It worked just fine, but when the snow plow came it destroyed the ramp which is just one more reason I can't drive my car. Ken is going to have to make a ramp again. You can see the wood from the ramp here mixed in with the snow.My mom and I email back and forth most days, sometimes a few times a day but sometimes its just nice to hear her voice so I gave her a call this afternoon and we had a nice chat. :-)

Congratulations to my grandson Antonio!!! He passed his drivers test today and now has his license. He has waited a long time for this. Way to go Antonio!!!

I'm writing this waiting for Ken to come home from work. Since I need to go to the commissary and hardly have any food in the house we are going to go out to eat. I just haven't decided what I'm in the mood for. Maybe Ken will have a good idea when he gets home.

Later we'll have a nice evening at home. A little television, reading, knitting, and a tasty snack.

I hope you had something good happen to you today.
Happyone :-)

  1. Don't know about something good except that I've visited lots of nice blogs and that's always good.

    My dentist would hit me if I baked him anything with sugar in it. He'd deliver a lecture a mile long. He's an insufferable pita on those issues. Glad that your dentist has good sense and may have even planned a second visit just to get the goods. ;>

    Congrats to your grandson!

  2. Watch out Antonio will be wanting to drive your vett. I would too.
    Glad the dentist was a good visit. I hate dentist and doc's. But have to go for my yearly tomorrow. :(

  3. Ha! My 6 month checkup was this morning, too. Just a cleaning.

  4. I was at the dentist today, too, but to have a crown repaired.
    Congratulations to Antonio!

  5. Hi Dear Karen, Congrats to Antonio. And you are right Karen, a call is worth a million words on paper..

  6. Congratulations to Antonio on getting his license and you on your good report from the dentist. I hope you get more sunshine and warmth over the weekend.
