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 work day

A 6 mile walk this morning on the connect the path route.  A picture of the morning sky with the moon.
 Another warm morning and surprisingly quite a few people out.  I left little early and it was still dark out. 

Right after breakfast we went to the old house and did a little more painting.  I gave the trim in the living room another coat of paint while Ken started cutting the paint in at the ceiling edge.  This picture is the kitchen/dining room and I'm standing in the living room taking the tape off around the trim. 
The kit/din room used to be the blue color you can see through the cutout.  We decided to paint the living room a very light beige.  I will post pictures when it is finished.
Even though the house has hardwood floors they have been refinished too many times so we have decided to put new hardwood floors in the library, din/kit and living room.  We went out and priced some floors and found just what we wanted at a good price.  That will be another project.  Once the house gets all this stuff done I'll want to move back in it! :-)

While at the house I also worked in the yard for a while and Ken trimmed some trees.  While we were working a couple of friends from the neighborhood stopped by for a chat.

We had dinner out at a Mexican restaurant and then picked up a new supply of ice cream at Weis.   Just got finished watching an episode of Nurse Jackie while eating ice cream.  In just a bit we'll watch another episode and I think I'll do a little knitting.
And that's been my day.
Hope you had a happy Saturday.
Happyone :-)
