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

Up in the loft

I sent most of the day in the loft trying to get things back to order and I got most everything done.  I wanted to keep a big area in the middle of the room clear so I can lay out afghan squares when I'm planning the design and sewing them together. 
This first picture is when I first come up the stairs.
 Other pictures around the room.

I still have some things to hang up on the walls.  I'm only going to hang up things that I've made.  I should be getting the outlet and switch covers in a couple of days. 
I still have the closet to sort out and will get to that in the next couple of days.  

I took advantage of the rising temperature again today and hung the sheets out on the line to dry.  I'm looking forward to going to bed on those sweet smelling sheets tonight.
Ken's work shirts were multiplying on the chair where they wait to get ironed so this afternoon they all got ironed.  

This evening while watching Pickers on television I had four chocolate chip cookies for my snack.
Now in just a bit Castle will be coming on so off I go to watch that.  I'll do a little knitting too.

Hope your Monday was a good one.
Happyone :-)
Let us be of good cheer,
remembering that the misfortunes
hardest to bear
are those which will never happen.
