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 Give-A-Way

I've been knitting dish cloths 
and have four of them finished.
I'd like to give two of them away.  
If you would like a chance to win them 
just leave a comment here 
saying what you like about my blog 
or why you read it and 
which two you would like.
Blue, Yellow, or Rust/Brown.  
They are 7 x 7 inches square.  
I use them for washing dishes 
but they are nice as face clothes too.
I will pick a winner from among the comments. 

You have until Tuesday night to leave a comment.  
I will pick a winner a week from today on Wednesday (February 15) and announce the winner that day.
Hope you like them and good luck. : )


  1. These are beautiful - I am too far away to receive one but I would love a copy of the pattern if you could print it on your blog. Thanks.

  2. NextChapter
    It doesn't matter, I will be happy to mail them to you if you win!!

  3. Oh gosh, they are so pretty. I'd be afraid to mess them up on dirty dishes :). How sweet of you to give them away!
    Since I have already been the lucky recipient of your beautiful work, I'm going to let the others have a chance at winning them. But, I will tell you why I enjoy your blog. Well, actually there are a lot of reasons, but I think most importantly is that you inspire me to get out there and walk and I like your outlook on life and though I haven't met you I know this world is a better place with you in it.

  4. I smiled when I saw your post of the dish clothes. My friend uses this same pattern and always carries one in progress with her, and no matter if it is waiting for the movie to start, or dinner to be served, she gets a few rows done. These are too nice for washing dishes, maybe as a hot dishes table protector.

  5. I read here for the continuity. You can be counted upon to provide the details of your walk and your day right down to what snack you will enjoy. I'm a creature of habit I guess. I use my dishcloths as napkins. They work great for that purpose as well!

  6. your blog is always a respite of goodness,for me
    and physical inspiration for my aging body...
    and I always feel God's love in your words and I ive thanks for that....
    no cloths required for this...just a thank you dear Happy One

  7. You are EXACTLY as your name indicates - a HAPPY One! It always makes me feel good to stop by and see what you've done during the day :) And you motivate me to walk!!

    You are one of my oldest blogging friends and I value our friendship!

    I would LOVE any color!!

    Thank you for doing this!

  8. My very favorite type of washcloth and I love the blue ones! I love everything about you, but especially your wonderful outlook on life!
