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

My Wednesday

This morning my walk took me along some paths in the woods and along sidewalks in neighborhoods.  A pretty hot and humid morning it was too.  Started out cloudy but the sun came out not long after.  I was just thinking how nice a rain shower would be when that's exactly what happened.  While the sun was shining it rained.  It was most welcome to have that brief shower but it was kind of spooky too!
I only came across a couple of people and they were all walking dogs.
I saw a deer in the woods and he looked up when I stopped to watch him and then just continued eating when I stood still.  I heard lots of different birds but didn't see any and 
a fox ran across a path carrying something in its mouth but I couldn't tell what it was. 
As much as I enjoyed my walk it was nice to come home to a nice cool house and have a nice big cold drink of water.
I walked 6.3 miles which was 12,935 steps.
I got a load of laundry hung up on the line first thing and then sat down and finished reading the book that I didn't quite finish last night.  It was another Ken Follett book called Code to Zero.  Ken read it too and we both liked it.  I liked it because it was a fast moving exciting book but I didn't really LIKE any of the characters in it.  I didn't get attached to any of them and didn't care what happened to them.

I left the house at noon with the cookies I made and the weave-it afghan in a bag and went to get my hair done.  I took the afghan with me because it was for Cheryl who is not only my hairdresser but my good friend as well who I met through our blogs.  She was very happy to receive it and I was so very happy to give it to her.  She just got a little extra tip today. : )  Sorry there are no pictures but we never got around to taking any.

My clothes dried really fast with it being so hot out and the clothes themselves felt hot like I had taken them out of the dryer.

I tripped up the little step from the deck into the house and really gave my toe a good wack - the second toe on my left foot and it is really sore. It feels hot to the touch and is a bit swollen.  I hope it won't bother me tomorrow on my walk!!

Ken is having his work picnic tomorrow and we went out after supper to pick up a few things for it.  It is only for work people so no spouses or kids.  Every year they have a theme and this years theme is On Safari.

We picked up some more ice cream while we were out too.  I got Chocolate Chip Mint and a new flavor that is only going to be out for limited time called Box of Chocolates!  The label reads, Milk chocolate ice cream with dark chocolate raspberry cups, chocolate almonds and white chocolate chunks swirled with chocolate chips.  Now doesn't that sound good!!!  I'm having some of that later. : )

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Enjoy your evening.
Happyone : )
A friend is one of the nicest things you can have,
and one of the best things you can be.

  1. How strange that it started raining when you were wishing it would. At least the sun was shining too. Cheryl is one lucky woman to get that beautiful afghan. I can't believe no one took pictures, especially between the two of you! That ice cream does sound yummy, you find the most unusual stuff. I've never seen that before. Once again, you have the perfect quote! Happy Humpday Happyone!

  2. That is a bit eerie how the rain started right at the moment you were having those thoughts.
    Having been the lucky recipient of one of your beautiful afghans, I can imagine how surprised and excited Cheryl must have been today.
    So sorry to hear about your toe. I hope it feels much better soon.
    That ice cream sounds unbelievably delicious. Enjoy it!!

  3. I was really hoping I was the one to receive your afghan. I thought that maybe, because you were seeing me and you said it was for a friend you'd be seeing, that it was me. Yea! It was me! Thank you so much. I'll treasure it.

    I love the limited edition ice creams; they're always so good.

    I hope your poor toe is better soon!

  4. Bumped toe! Ouch! Sorry!

    Hope it doesn't stay sore. 'Cause *they say* we should not exercise-in-pain, yes?

    She who doesn't feel like even trying to put pictures in a post... -pout-

  5. Yes, that ice cream description sounds marvelous. Sorry about your toe...I've had a problem toe for a few days and what a distraction it can be...hope yours heals quickly. Cheryl must have loved the afghan...good thing you had showed it to us a while ago. When it rains while the sun is out, my grandmother used to say that that meant the devil was beating his wife. What a sweet memory from childhood...LOL!
