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 to blogging

I'm back. I got a few emails asking if things were okay with me because I haven't been posting. All things fine here with me. Just took a few days break from blogging. I sure have a lot of blog reading to catch up on too!!!

I've walked every morning. One morning it was cold again, Brrrr.... 30 degrees. It was sunny though. I've walked in clouds and two mornings it rained. Walked around the lake, paths around the neighborhoods and just on the roads. A nice mix of walks and enjoyed them all. I've heard of people getting a runners high, well I get a walkers high. It happens when I get to that 5 mile point. After that I feel really good and energized and I could keep on walking all day long! :-)

Saturday we finally brought Ken's Vette to the house. It had been in the garage in Savage because he couldn't use it much with all the snow. A few times when it was nice he would trade vehicles. I dropped Ken off and came back home in the Toyota, FJ. I haven't driven that in quite a while and it was fun to drive it again. Such a big difference from my car. I'm up real high and it's an automatic. I kept trying to push in a clutch that wasn't there. :-) Ken stayed at Savage because he was meeting a man there who wanted the old carport. Remember the one that collapsed from the snow. It was nice to get that out of there. When he was done there he just drove his car home. It's nice to have His and Hers together in the garage again. :-)
We went to a drum and bugle corps show Saturday in Baltimore. They are usually held outside but this one was indoors and boy was it LOUD. Very good show and we really enjoyed it.
We almost didn't get there on time. Traffic was stopped for a while because of a car accident up ahead. It wasn't that far up ahead from where we were. The driver lost control of his Viper and slammed into the guard rail and took down a light pole. It appeared to be a one car accident but the Viper was totaled. Not sure about the driver, but an ambulance took off.

I've been eating French toast for breakfast lately. One of these mornings I'll just get tired of it and then start eating something else. I do this with different foods at times.
While cleaning the house yesterday I ended up moving a few things around which took up a lot of time so I never did finish cleaning it, so I did some more of that today. I was going to go to my knitting group this morning but got busy doing other things and when I thought about it again, it was after 10 so I didn't go.
I gave my kitchen window a new look. I put up a dark blue swag curtain which is recycled from my mom's house and put a few cobalt blue Fiestaware pieces and two Polish pottery pieces on the window sill.
This is the old look.
I've finished reading U is for Undertow by Sue Grafton. This book was a bit different than usual for her but very good. At first it seemed like a lot of unlinked stories and then it all started coming together. I liked it a lot and it was another hard to put down book for me. I've started another one by Dean Koontz.

No plans for dinner yet tonight, but I'm thinking going out to eat somewhere when Kenny gets home sounds good. He is in a class the first part of this week for work and he's been getting home on the late side, not real late just latter than usual.

In the meantime I'll spend some time getting caught up on some blog reading.

Hope all is well in your part of the world and your Tuesday was a happy day for you.
Happyone :-)
Wherever you go, go with all your heart.


  1. Glad you are well my friend!! LOVE the shot with the bench - but the misty morning shot is breathtaking! Oh, I LOVE those types of images!!

    I have U is for Undertow on my Kindle....I may read it next. Which Dean Koontz are you reading now??

  2. Good seeing you back!
    My son was in a drum and bugle corp when he was young. He was in the Phanton Regiment and played base drum. They are so loud - I can't imagine how it must sound indoors!

  3. I'm happy to hear that things are going well with you. I completely understand what you mean by a walker's high -- I feel the same way. The Drum and Bugle Corp show sounds like it would be fun.

  4. Glad to know that you're OK. I really like the new look for your kitchen window. I have both those Polish Pottery pieces. I really like polish pottery and have (over the years) collected several pieces.

  5. Glad to hear all is well with you. I must admit I wondered as I've gotten used to your daily postings.
    I like your new look for your kitchen window. The cookie cutters look cute up there too.
    I can't believe how fast you read books.

  6. Kerri, I'm reading Breathless and its good!

  7. HI Dear Karen,
    I am so glad that you are back.... Your writing and your pictures and your thoughts. missed them all.... continue writing!!!


  8. I just finished U IS FOR UNDERTOW on Sunday! I thought it was a deviation from her usual book -- but I really enjoyed it - and she's left hints as to things to come. I ve just started THE BLIND SIDE.

    I've been craving and eating oatmeal lately!

  9. I guess I haven't read that one yet so I'll be looking for it at the library. I love Sue Grafton books.

  10. Glad to see you back posting again. I've been delinquent in my reading of blogs, but I did notice you weren't around.

    Pretty lake pictures and I really like the misty shot. I like your update to the kitchen window, too.


Hello my friend.

I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
