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 good day

Another cold morning with a temperature of 30 degrees. I went back to wearing my coat with the hood. As I was walking it was hard to believe that later in the day it would be near 70 and I'd be sitting out on the deck in the sun! Today's walk was on the paths around the neighborhoods and I walked my usual 6 miles. I only saw 2 other people out, both walking dogs. A few rabbits were having breakfast along the paths edge but they all scurried away as I passed. No one wanted their picture taken. By the time I got home, my hood was down and coat unzipped and the sun was shining.
Sunrise 7:14
Sunset 7:17
In the morning I went to drop a book off at the library and then to the bank. It was so nice out that I ended up going for a little ride. Three different times I had to pull over to let an emergency vehicle pass. Two fire trucks and a police car!

I made a good start on cleaning out my closet and dresser. I don't have that many clothes so the job isn't as big as it sounds. I've thrown out clothes that were way too worn to give to any charity. I have a couple more drawers to go through. Then I'll be able to go out shopping to replace what I've thrown away. :-)

Another beautiful sunny day and I was out on the deck this afternoon. I had a some flower pots out there that I left through the winter and they didn't survive. They were ceramic and had cracked so I had to throw them out.
I did a little knitting while sitting out there too.

I made the Eggplant Parmesan for supper tonight. I haven't made it for a while and it was really good. I don't have a recipe for it and in fact when we first got married Ken taught me how to make it. :-)

Ken got a noticed from the library saying the book he had on reserve was in, so I made another trip to the library today with him after supper. I was so good when I went earlier to just drop off a book and didn't check any more out. I was just going to look at the new book section tonight and ended up checking two more out!! So you know what we will be doing later.

In a little bit I'm going to have ice cream for my snack. A two tone flavor tonight. Chocolate Chip on the bottom with Chocolate Cookies N Supreme on the top. My mouth is watering just thinking of it!!

Today I am thankful for libraries and ice cream.
Happyone :-)

  1. Libraries and ice creams are favorites of mine too :)

  2. Your snack sounds yummy...we're having another Shamrock Shake sorta. I'm just noticing the pictures of your grands in your sidebar. You have some older grands and some younger grands...four grands? Nice addition!

    It's supposed to get to nearly 70 this weekend. We shall see. I hope so. Not that I can get out for a walk yet, but I'm hoping to soon.

  3. We saw the sun for the first time in a week today, so it was a good day down here as well. We didn't get quite as warm as you did, but it was still very nice.

  4. HI Dear Karen,

    Your snack sounds yummy really... and i am happy that you could finally make the Eggplant Parmesan and an interesting story behind that recipe...

  5. I lost quite a few pots to parging -- just couldn't get to them in time. Eggplant parm is one of my favorites!
