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 rainy day

After supper yesterday Ken had to go back to work to finish some things up.  He didn't get back home till 1:00!!! So I read Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich and finished it.  Though I have really liked all the books in this series, this one just wasn't that good.  I think it's time she retire Stephanie Plum and start a new series.  Evanovich should write one more and have Stephanie finally chose between Ranger and Morelli.  A tough choice.  Those of you who read her books - Who would you choose? Me - I'd choose Morelli. 

I've been home today on this rainy day.
I added some more of my books into my LibraryThing account. I also took pictures of some of the books that have no book covers shown and added them too.

I was going to get started on the loft, but once I got up there I saw the weave-it squares sitting there on the floor and decided I would rather make some squares so that is what I did.  I listened to the rest of the audio book Great Expectations by Charles Dickens while making squares.  A pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Supper tonight was to be Chicken Enchiladas that I made at an earlier date and took out of the freezer, but when Ken came home from work we decided we wanted to go out.  We went to the mall and ate at a Mexican Restaurant called Chevy's.

Later we made a stop at Weis and picked up some Vanilla Fudge Twirl ice cream.  It's been a while since we had ice cream in the house.
That was our snack tonight while we watched the first episode of the fourth season of Dexter which came in the mail from Netflex.  The ending made us want to watch the next episode but we are saving it for tomorrow.

I have another book to start tonight - the new one by James Patterson.

Happy Wednesday to you!
Happyone :-)


  1. oh great... it is raining here as well Karen as i write this comment... i really want to read Along came a spider.. i heard it is good... maybe next time i am going to issue this book from the library...

  2. Now that does sound like a pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon. Looks like that rain headed this way as I woke up at 4:00 to thunder, lightning and rain. Now at 7:40 it's still raining. We sure could use it, so no complaining from me.
