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.

In and out all day

A cloudy morning for my walk but it was cool and pleasant.  No special route today.  I walked 6 miles up and down streets where ever I felt like it.  I saw my walking walking friend couple, Petey and Bob.  We stopped for a short chat.  I also saw a woman I see when I walk around the lake in her yard!! I didn't know her name, but learned that it was Kathryn. 

We were in and out all day.
Went to IKEA and picked up my new dresser.  I got a black one. It comes in pieces and Ken put the main part of the dresser together.  He's doing the drawers now as I type this.  It works out nicely because he can put it together right in our room and we don't have to carry a big dresser up 2 flights of stairs.  I'll post a picture of it another day.

We got another gallon of yellow paint for the old house.  We picked out a lighter yellow because once the other color dried we thought it looked too bright.  So now it will get a third coat of paint.

Another stop was at DSW and Ken got a couple new pair of shoes.  I looked around but didn't find anything I liked.  So many of the shoes have 5 inch heals and look like hooker shoes!!  I know I would kill myself walking in those things!! While walking around there I bumped into another Joanne, a walker friend who I see when I walk around the lake.

One more stop was at the produce stand we discovered a couple of weeks ago.  We got more peaches and a huge cantaloupe.  Tonight we will have fruit for our snack.  It's so sweet its almost like eating candy!

We made a few other stops here and there too.  A busy day that zoomed by.

We will watch some television this evening and I'll probably read later too.
Hope your Saturday was a happy day for you.
Happyone. :-)
Thanks to Pam who figured out the bird I saw yesterday was a green heron.


  1. I have heard so muck about ikea.. and i guess everyone loves it... it's a shame tat they are not in India though.... but it is on my bucketlist... will get something for myself from there...

  2. Had a nice but busy day yesterday, too. Picked up our new car and spent way too much time there. We got our IKEA catalog in the mail today !!

  3. May I please *report* that we took an early evening walk, on Sat. Right after we cleaned up from dinner. :-) Now... To make this happen daily! :-)

  4. Thank you for replying and telling me the name of your pedometer. But [sadly] I looked it up, and it has been discontinued. -le sighhhhhhhhhhh-

  5. Aunt A, I'm glad I bought three when I did. Hopefully they will last for a LONG time. I have heard from two other friends who recommend a pedometer called Omron HJ-112.
    Happy walking.


Hello my friend.
