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 sick day

No walking for me today.  I'm taking a sick day.  By the time i went to bed last night my sore throat had gotten really bad, i had an awful headache and a fever.
A good night sleep did wonders and i feel a lot better today.  Since is was a rainy day i thought or rather Ken thought that it would a good idea for me to have a day of rest.
So i'm home taking it easy for the day.  Doing a little reading and some knitting.
Ken took the day off and has been home here with me to make sure i take it easy!! : )
He has made me a couple cups of tea too.  He takes good care of me!!

Vee, you were asking about the scarf pattern.  It is super easy.  Just cast on 16 stitches on size 11 needles.  It is just plain knitting, row after row until the ball of Fun Fur is used up.  The pattern was on the the label.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
I'm sure i'll be back to walking tomorrow.
Happyone : )

  1. Sounds as if you really needed a cozy day today, Karen. I'm glad that you listened to Ken. He must not think you will, though, if he took the day off to make sure that you stayed put. ☺

    Okay, I think that I can manage that pattern. Easy knitting is my idea of fun. I hate counting and fretting.

    Stay low and keep the cozy going!

  2. I am glad Ken stayed home with you. Sometimes it is helpful to have someone around to keep you "honest"!!


    TAke care and get well soon.

  3. So sorry to hear you are not well. Recover quickly reading those books and knitting. We miss the days when you can't take us on your walks with you :)

    Blessings, Gwen

  4. When you said about ignoring the sore throat yesterday........ Mmmmmm....

    I'm sorry it has really developed. But it's sweet that Ken stayed with you, to make sure you really took the day off!

    *Naughty* you, he shouldn't have to do that, but....... Tsk, tsk, tsk... You are just too stubborn sometimes, my Dear.

    Now please, do not push yourself, more than is wise. I know it's hard for you but... Please.....

    Or your "Auntie" will have to hop on her broom, and fly down there, and give you a good talking to. :-)))))))

    Lots and lots of gentle hugs...

  5. Your quote today says it all. I'm glad that Ken is taking such good care of you. I hope by tomorrow you will be ALL better and able to enjoy your walking once again.

  6. Hope you feel even better soon, Karen. Keep drinking tea and chicken soup, and take care of yourself. Art

  7. Oh dear, hope you feel better very soon Karen. Enjoy some time indoors, it's nice sometimes to have some enforced rest xx

  8. I hope that you wake today feeling much better....it always feels good to have someone else take care of you! Much Love, Pamie G.
