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 bird stopped by

This nice sunny day started out cool but it warmed up nicely and was a perfect spring day. I spent the morning in the house doing those things that have to be done.
Part of the afternoon I sat outside on the deck. As I was sitting there knitting I noticed that some sparrows had arrived at the bird feeder. It was the first time I've actually seen birds at the feeder. I went inside to get my camera and waited patiently for a while. It paid off because I was able to get a picture. It is only a sparrow and I know there are many of them around but it was still nice to get a picture of one at my feeder.

Ken didn't know what time he would be getting home tonight so I made a small Baked Ziti for my supper and when he gets home it's easy to heat up for him.

I just got finished watching Jeopardy and now I'll go and read until Ken gets home. Oz from Netflix came in the mail today so we will watch that later tonight.
I'm going to eat cookies for my snack. :-)

I hope your Thursday was a happy one.

  1. The ziti looks quite good. I love watching the birds at our feeders, too.

  2. I want some Ziti it looks great. I had to take our feeder down. The squrrels ate on it all day and it about broke me . So now I just toss a cup out in the morning and evening. The squrrels still get some but just not all.

  3. Hooray for your first bird. Your feeder is so cute. I'll bet you will start to see more once that sparrow passes the word along to his friends :).
    Your ziti looks scrumptious.

  4. Sparrows are on the decline here in the UK but we have plenty of them in our garden! Nice to see a bird on a new feeder and shows it's accepted doesn't it.

  5. HI Dear Karen,

    I love sparrows too.... There are a few that visit my house everyday.... And i love their chirping every morning.....

    This picture is beautiful.....

  6. That is a cute sparrow. They have a sweet and comforting song, don't they? Thanks for letting me know about this one, since I usually visit your other blog (snapshotsbyhappyone).

  7. Glad you had a bird visitor. They are such fun to watch.
    That ziti looks wonderful. Wish I had a plateful right now.

  8. The Ziti looks fab!
    To get some different birds at your feeder you could try putting out some peanuts. If you buy the unshelled ones make sure they are not salted. That should definitely get you some bluejays!
    Titmice and chickades also like peanuts - but normally shelled ones :)


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
