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

Walking, lasagna, and knitting

A hot sticky morning for walking today and it didn't take me three miles this morning to get hot!!  I walked my connect the path route and stayed away from the lake because I figured it would be really crowded with everyone getting their exercise in early today.
It wasn't too bad walking along the paths under the trees.  I encountered a few other people walking and running along the paths too.
I didn't see much in the way of wildlife.  All the animals must have been hunkering down somewhere trying to stay cool.  There weren't even very many birds singing.
It was a pretty quiet uneventful walk but I was glad to be out there walking.  I remember in the winter when the sidewalks were icy and I couldn't walk.  Ice may keep me from walking but not a little hot weather!! : )
I walked 6.2 miles.
Sunrise 5:56
Sunset 8:31
I did make the lasagna last night and when it had 10 minutes left to go in the oven Ken called me and said he probably wouldn't make it home for dinner because he was stopped on the side of the road helping a co-worker.  Her car was broken down and she was on the side of the road waiting for the tow truck and he was going to drive her home.  So I figured I would just eat supper and Ken could heat some up when he got home.  I had taken the lasagna out of the oven and was letting it sit for those all important 15 minutes before cutting into it.  I was upstairs and heard the garage door open and heard Ken come in and say we have company.  The tow truck was taking longer than expected so they were going to wait here.  It was really perfect timing so she just stayed and had supper with us.  There  was plenty of food so it wasn't a problem.  We had a salad and homemade bread with it.  By the time we had finished eating, the tow truck driver called to say that her car had been towed to the dealer already.  We then drove Debbie home which was over an hour away.  She has quite a commute every day!! 
The last time I made lasagna Ken called and had to work late.  This making of lasagna might not be such a good idea! : )
I went to my knitting group this morning. We met inside at Savage Mill because of the weather - hot and a chance of thunder storms.  There were 16 of us that showed up which included a few new faces.  I  knitted just a couple of rows on a white square and then switched over to making a few weave-its.  When I first brought my weave-its to the knitting group I was the only one making them and now there are four of us!

Not doing much around the house today, just the basics.  I didn't get a chance to read yesterday so I'm going to go and do that now.

Hope you're enjoying your day.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )

it always pleases her to discover
that there is a nice man who wishes that she were not.

  1. ☺ Cute quote.

    How wonderful that supper was ready and waiting and that you had company and were able to serve something so delicious. Very timely. You and Ken are good friends to have when you live an hour away like that. Two hours on the road each day. Wouldn't she like to buy a sweet little home closer by? ☺

    It's muggier here, too, but nothing that we get to complain about knowing how much worse it is for so many others.

  2. you have a good man there Happy one
    but 6.5 miles in this heat.....what a woman

  3. I'd be happy to eat your lasagna any time Ken was delayed. We're 'enjoying' hot, sticky weather as well. It's so bad I don't even want to work out in the yard. Unfortunately the weeds are thriving in this weather.

  4. Hi There, Having that lasagna last night was perfect timing --since you had some company... Poor gal. Glad Ken could help her. Hope she got her car fixed...

    YES--George and I both love lasagna... Can we stop by???? ha ha


  5. You are my hero walking in this heat. I suppose from your perspective, not being able to walk when it is snow and ice, I understand your perserverance. I thought you had made the lasagna yesterday for some reason, I guess because you talked about it. So nice of Ken to help out his co-worker, especially bringing her home to dinner. I know if it were me, I'd rather someone I know help me out than being left alone or at the mercy of a stranger. You definitely have a keeper, you both have hearts of gold.

  6. I agree with all the above. You both are gems.

  7. What a terrible day to be stuck on the side of the road. That goodness you husband did stop her a co-worker ... and he brought her home. Too hot to be sitting on the side of the road.

  8. So nice of Ken to help his co-worker like that. Also nice that you had such a good dinner prepared on a night when a surprise guest showed up.

  9. I bet she wasn't expecting such a wonderful dinner!
