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

New Phones

Giving Thanks Challenge Day Number 29
I am Thankful for God's Love for me.
Whatever happens or whatever i do
i know Gods loves me.
Good days and bad days too
He is always there for me.
A love that never fails.
Once again a great morning for walking!  Warm weather with a temperature of 58 degrees.  It rained some last night and this morning it looked like more rain but i saw the sunrise and then the sun came out and stayed out the whole time i was walking.  It seemed like it stayed out just for my walk because just as i got home the clouds came around and the sun went back to sleep.
I walked around the neighborhoods on sidewalks and some of the paths too.  Not many people out, just a few walking dogs and a couple of runners.
Heard a woodpecker and saw a few Cardinals.  A quiet and uneventful walk but a fine one all the same.
I found a penny.
Walked 6.3 miles.
It is Tuesday and my knitting group day but decided to stay home today.  A package was due to arrive today and i had to sign for it and didn't want to miss it.  It was for our new TracFones.  Ken and i both got new ones.  We've had the old ones for years and thought it was time for an update.  Neither one of us talk on the phone much so we find the pay as you go TracFones ideal for us.  There is no contract and for a year of talking we only pay about $100.  Though you could text with old phones it didn't have a keypad so it made texting a long process.  These new phones have keypads and cameras too.  Now we just have to transfer all the phone numbers to the new phone and figure out how everything works.  We still get to keep our old number which is a very good thing.

So i'm home again today finishing up some work from yesterday with some time for fun stuff too.

Hope this day finds you happy and content.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )
Who does not thank for little
will not thank for much.

  1. I hardly use my mobile phone, it's really there for my emergencies as I can't talk to Peter at work, I wouldn't want to disturb him when he is driving and even when I do send him a text he forgets to turn his phone on. I have a very basic Orange phone that cost £5.50, does phone and text and I spend £10-£20 a year on pay-as-you-go. That's not bad value.

  2. Sounds like a bargain your trac-phones. We should look into a better deal ourselves.

  3. Ah, you have a lucky penny. Getting new electronics always produces a learning curve. I find that I end up asking my grandkids. They just roll their eyes, and so it's so simple.

  4. Sounds like you got a great deal on your TracFones. Do you have a home phone also? Not long ago, we got rid of our Frontier Telephone service ---but we wanted to keep that home phone (for business calls). SO--we kept the same number and went with a fairly cheap phone through Verizon.. Think it's about $20 a month for unlimited calling.

    I do alot of texting (our kids and some friends)---so we do pay more for our cellphones (Verizon)...

    Hope you had a nice day.

  5. Great posting and interesting info share in the post so thanks
