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 good day for cross stitching

I woke up this morning to 30 degrees and fog.  The temperature has gone up to 37 this afternoon, it is still rainy but things are melting.  Thought briefly about walking this morning but figured there would still be icy spots around and with the rain it would be hard to tell where the ice was.  Since I've already missed walking for these three days now and tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and warm, I'm just going to get back to walking tomorrow.  I'll just walk a little extra the rest of the week.  I did a couple of body electric workouts so got a little activity in.

I ended up knitting all afternoon yesterday while watching the football game.  Well I didn't really watch it because I don't care for football but Ken was watching and I just kept on knitting.

I've spent a lot of today doing counted cross stitch.  I'm sitting under the ott light which is very bright like sunlight.  It's the only way I'm going to get any sun today.  Any one who does needlework should have one of these lights.  Even on a dreary day like today I can see all the different shades of colors without a problem. 

Well, back to my cross stitch project again.  Maybe by tomorrow I'll have enough of it done to post a picture.
Hope the sun is shining where you are. 
Whoever is happy will make others happy too

  1. I miss my Ott light and should invest in another. I loaned it out...never got it back. ☺

    Good thinking...no sense in taking risks when the weather will be good tomorrow and the rest of the week.

    What are you knitting?

  2. When I was displaced by a flooded house (water pipes broke) the movers took apart my Ott light, and lost the bottom. Go figure. Hope that you have a comfy day today and a walking day tomorrow.

  3. I'll have to check out the Ott light!
    Can't wait to see your new project :)

  4. I've been away from the computer for a few days while recovering from some minor foot surgery so I've just caught up on why you have been missing your walks. I know by now you must be anxious to get back out there. We have had fog here today too, but no ice.
    I'm curious to see what you're working on now. Since I have to be off my feet for awhile longer, I just might drag out that cross stitch project I started months and months ago :).

  5. Happyone, You are the epitome of Mark Twain's quote: "Whoever is happy will make others happy too."!

  6. There's nothing better on a cold, winter, dreary day than to sit and knit or cross-stitch.... Glad you have been able to do both!!!!! That is what winter is for!!!!

    Don't try to walk until that ice is gone...

  7. My eyes aren't good enough for cross stitch anymore :( but I love to sit and crochet - can do it for hours when I get the chance.
