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

When I made waffles the other day I had three extras so I put them in a baggie in the refrigerator for three future breakfasts. Then I just pop one in the toaster to heat it up. I add a little icing sugar on top and it satisfies my sweet tooth. I don't eat it with a fork but just pick it up. It kind of reminds me of a donut. A glass of milk (skim), a piece of fruit and I'm set until lunch time.

I made Pumpkin Bread this morning for tomorrow. It's nice that the recipe is for three loaves because I get to freeze two of them. While I was in the kitchen I listened to more of the audio book Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It's one that I own and was a gift from my daughter. I've been listening to it for a long time. It's a long book and I only listen to it if I'm in the kitchen.

I spent the day at home again. Did a little work, knitting and reading. I was going to wash my very dirty car but never got around to it. It is so dirty that I won't drive it anywhere until I wash it first. The day ended up windy and a few rain showers.

We will watch another episode of Oz tonight and eat some ice cream. Then I'll probably read.
Hope your Friday was a happy one.
Happyone :-)
Beautiful and graceful,
varied and enchanting,
small but approachable,
butterflies lead you to
the sunny side of life.
And everyone deserves a little sunshine.

  1. Are you also reading The Secret Life of Butterflies? ;D You've had a lot of nice butterfly quotes lately. I'd like to listen to a classic while in the kitchen. Perhaps it'd keep me in there.

  2. Great idea on the waffles. And the pumkin bread sound great. I want some. It is going to rain here all weekend. So no car washing for us.

  3. Hi Dear Karen,

    I want some of those waffles. The last time you put the pic, they looked so delicious.....

    I wish there is some rain here. The weather is super hot.....

    I hope you have a great weekend.

  4. YUM - I LOVE pumpkin bread!!

  5. Vee, No, I'm not reading the Secret Life of Butterflies but I have found a bunch of butterfly quotes on line.
