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

I was happy

to find that the switch plate and outlet plates arrived in the mail today.  Right away I went up in the loft and put them on.

They are good quality and really nice and exactly right for the room.  I will be ordering more of them with different themes for other rooms in my house.  They have so many different designs for any kind of theme you want.  Check them out HERE

Another nice spring like day and once again I got to sit on the deck for a little while during the afternoon.

I did a little housework and some baking too.  I had some bananas turning brown so had to turn them into Banana Bread.  Next I made some Chocolate Chippers.  Tomorrow I have a hair appointment with Cheryl and I'm bringing some of the cookies there for her and the other hair stylists.  My appointment is at 9 for a color touch up so I have no gray showing for the Gala. :-)  Though I am not getting my hair done in any special way for the Gala, Cheryl always blows it dry and I love how it turns out when she does it.  I still plan on walking in the morning so I'll have to get up a bit earlier so I'll have enough time.

A night out for pizza and now here I am at home.  We will watch the last episode of Pillars of the Earth and I'll finish up knitting my slippers.

I won't be posting tomorrow because I'll be busy and then there's the gala at night.
I'm bringing my camera so hope I'll get a few good pictures.
Till next time.......
 Happyone :-)
At every party there are two kinds of people.
Those who want to go home and those who don't.
The trouble is, they are usually married to each other.

  1. What a funny quote...and so true. Those switchplates are terrific and they really do go beautifully. I'm going to see what they might have for me.

  2. I tried, but the link won't work for me...

  3. I can't wait for my chocolate chippers! And to see you too, of course :)) We always have a great time together.

  4. I hope you have a wonderful time at the dance!

  5. Have a great time tomorrow evening!

  6. So nice and cute the switchplates!!
    Hope you enjoy the Gala!!!

  7. That's a really pretty idea. I'll keep them in mind as I think of possible ideas for our next home which might even be a new build. Really I would like to have touch plates, there are some very stylish ones around with brushed stainless steel designs incorporating small blue lights which help you find the switch in the dark. We have several touch lamps including some by our bed and they are so much easier than looking for a switch.

  8. What beautiful switch plates, I will visit this site. I always enjoy reading about your day and especially the walks, as I am trying to get back to my regular schedule.
    Enjoy your evening, and please take lots of pictures. I loved the quote,to cute.

  9. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Today is the 19th and tonight is the Gala!!!!!!!!! I could hardly be more excited, if I was going myself. Wheeeeeeeee!!!

    Glad you will let Cheryl do some of her magic, on your hair. :-)

    Please don't forget the pictures, before you two step out the door.

    And oh yes, can't wait for pics FROM the Gala!!! And of course, I just know you will........ Watch for some "interesting" photo opppppppppppps. -evil giggles-
