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

Lots of food and a friends new blog

After doing the usual house chores that have to be done, I spent a lot of time browsing around on the computer today. Time sure gets eaten up fast when you do that. I also finished reading the brain book. I was able to fit a little knitting time in as well.

Before Ken left for work this morning we decided we were going to go out to eat this evening. I thought all day of where I wanted to go and my choice was Champs. Ken though about it too and couldn't decide so Champs it was.
I had nachos which was an appetizer.
Look at all that food.
I only ate about a third of it.Ken had Kung Pao Chicken.
After we ate we walked around the mall for a while using up some of those calories.
A stop at the grocery store to pick up some milk and then we headed back home.
My snack tonight will be a few Oreo Cookies. I haven't had any ice cream for about a week. We will have to go to Weis and get some in the next day or so.

A friend of mine from my knitting group has just started her own blog. She is a fun lady and loves to laugh. If you have a moment stop by and say hi to Retired Knitter and tell her I sent you. :-)

I hope this Friday was a great start to your weekend.
Happyone :-)
Just a word of welcome to the few new followers to my blog.


  1. Guess what I saw on the way to the grocery this AM - first, I followed a RED Vette and then I looked across the street and a YELLOW Vette was parked. I thought you and Ken came to town! I learned that there is a Corvette Rally and Show in Breckenridge this weekend.

  2. living is good your way for sure
