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

At home in the kitchen

Not a sunny morning walk for me today.  It was damp and cloudy which made the 49 degrees seemed a bit cooler.  Still it was a great morning for walking.  I walked 6.7 miles and went over to the lake.  The sidewalk closed signs were still up but no workers there.  I decided to take the detour just because I like walking in the woods.  Here is some bamboo I came across.  The path is just off to the left.
Few people walking around the lake today, at least while I was there but now I'm seeing more fishermen.  A couple of boats were out on the lake too.
Lots of birds, geese, and ducks about seeming to enjoy the beginning of another day.
As soon as I got home I put a pot roast in the slow cooker to cook all day.  I decided not to put potatoes in with it because I've been craving mashed potatoes for a few days now so I'll make that. 

Later in the day the sun showed itself for brief periods of time but it has been mostly cloudy and not as warm as it as been so I didn't sit outside.

I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies for tomorrow.  I ended up eating two of them.  I'm skipping lunch though because of it.

Now I have to clean up the kitchen.

Hope your Friday is a good one.
 Exercise, play, move.
Stretch, feel, reach, sweat.
Skip, dance, hug!
Use the body God gave you,
don't let it rot.

  1. Right. =D

    Enjoy the pot roast and the mashed potatoes and the cookies and whatever else you decide to eat. Sounds great!

  2. A pot roast sounds like very comforting food - I could just sit down and really enjoy it. Sounds a lovely walk through the wood.

  3. Mmm... I'll bet your kitchen smells yummy today.
    Good advice from Terri once again today.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Anything cooking all day, makes a delicious day, in the house. :-)
