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.

A walk, last nights dinner and squares

A little bit warmer this morning and a bit humid after all the rain from last night, but still not too bad.  The sky was blue, the sun was out and every so often a breeze would come along. i walked along streets, on paths, and in parking lots with no particular route in mind.
i like this yard i walked by and the little bridge there in the trees.
i walked passed the pool again and noticed that the fence is now finished.  i guess that fence is good enough for around here AuntieA.
i encountered a few people out walking along my way and everyone was friendly and said good morning back to me. : )  i came across a few deer, rabbits, and a fox. 

i walked 6.4 miles which was 13,219 steps.

Last night dinner at Baldwin Station was a wonderful evening out.  Even though it was raining out we decided to eat outside and it ended up being even nicer than i imagined it would be.  We had a perfect view of the railroad tracks and a stream that runs through town.
There was a gentle rain falling and it was quite pleasant listening to the rain as we talked and ate.  The food was delicious and as always in a good restaurant the presentation of it was a work of art.  i didn't take any pictures of the food but if you check out the above link you can get an idea of what i mean.  What i also liked was that we didn't feel rushed and there was plenty of time to enjoy everything.  We even got lucky and had a train come through : )
There were a few other couples who enjoyed eating outside but most people stayed inside where it was packed.
A very nice evening and i'm so glad we decided on this restaurant.  We have been here a half dozen times and have never been disappointed.
*******************************************
Here's the next batch of weave-it squares i've made.  There's 16 more big squares  here, each made up of 4 weave-it squares sewn together. 
i now have 40 done with 32 more to go for a total of 72.
If you count up the individual weave-it squares i have made 160 with 128 more to go.
It's coming along pretty good and I'm hoping to be finished by October.  

It's been an at home day so far for me and i've enjoyed puttering around the house. Since it's Friday, when Ken comes home we will probably go out somewhere. 

Hope this day was a good one for you.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )

  1. Interesting... The fence.

    As for myself, the *worry-wart,* I'd want a secure fence around my pool, which we can keep locked.

    I'd have nightmares of some child wandering into the pool, when no one was around, with that rail fence.

    Here, we have to have a secure fence... For Insurance, even.

  2. I love the look of that misty rain falling as you ate on the patio. It probably felt cooler with the rain, too. Have a nice weekend.

  3. It was humid this morning for my walking group too. Glad the sun finally poked out. Those folks with the walk bridge on their property have a chore lawn mowing. What a nice quaint restaurant. If you've ever lived near the railroad tracks the train going by can be monotonous, certainly pleasant every now and then. Wow, you are plugging right along on the weave-its, go girl, October won't be a problem!

  4. I can't wait till cooler weather to use my weave-it afghan! Well, of course I don't want the warm weather to end, but...it will be so great to cozy up with my blanket.
