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 spring like day

I hung around the house today getting some work done.  Such a nice day so I hung some wash out again.  Had to take advantage of this beautiful sunny day.  It got up to 73 degrees.
I've still been making all our bread in the bread machine and can't remember the last time I bought bread at the store.  The house smelled so good today again with the smell of bread.  Between air dried clothes smell and the baking bread smell, my nose thinks its heaven.

I hung the black and pink clock that I bought last night up in the loft today.  It's a fun clock and goes well with the pink walls.  As promised here is the picture.
I ran out of window/glass cleaner so made some more.  I like the kind I make a lot better than a store bought kind.  I mix together.
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid soap (I use Ivory Liquid)
  • 2 cups water
 Then put it in a spray bottle and I'm ready to go.

Mid afternoon I was ironing and decided to take a break and enjoy the sunny afternoon.  I took my knitting and actually sat out on the deck knitting.  I can't tell you how nice it was to be sitting in the sun.  I think we are supposed to have one more day like this before it gets cold again.
After that nice bread it was back in the house to finish the ironing and folding the clothes.

Supper is over now and time to spend a nice relaxing evening at home.  Some television, reading, and knitting.
Enjoy your evening.
Happyone :-)


  1. You mean you can't keep the 73F days? Well shoot! Our temps got up to 43° and we were thrilled...lots of melting, but I'm hearing about snow on Monday. Cute clock!

  2. It was a glorious day. Wish I could have been out on your deck with you!

  3. Oh! heaven it is... I like clock too... The weather has been challenging here... although it has stopped with the raining, the winds are too harsh. This Sat is my birthday and i really do want to have some sunshine on that day. :-)

  4. I'm loving this warmer weather, too, but can't help but feel winter has another surprise or so for us!

    I bet your house smells good!

  5. Nothing like fresh bread! I bet your house smelled devine! Will you share your recipe?
