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

One fine day

It was 57 degrees this morning, but it was damp and cloudy and didn't seem that warm.  Still it was good for walking. I walked my connect the path route.

I saw quite a few robins, cardinals and counted 15 deer scattered along the route.

Only a few people out.  Stopped for a chat with Petey and John.  They both went to the doctor yesterday for checkups and both got a clean bill of health.  Doctor told them both to keep up the walking!! It's keeping them healthy!! : )

I found a few coins this morning - a penny, a nickel, and a dime.
Walked 6.4 miles.
Sunrise 7:21
Sunset 7:13
Tuesday has rolled around again which is knitting day.  I'm working on sewing the weave-it square baby blanket together so packed that and the rest of the squares in my knitting bag and left for the mill.  By that time the sun had broken through the clouds and it was a nice warm sunny day.  I drove the truck again this week. 
Lots of people showed up for knitting, but I never did get around to counting how many.  I almost got the whole baby blanket sewed up.  It is just in three pieces now that have to be sewn.  I was going to wait and finish it next week at knitting, but I'm sure I'll finish it at home before then.

After knitting I went to pick up my friend Mary Jo and we went to Nordstom's and had lunch there in the cafe.  It was her first time there and we both had delicious food and a good time talking.  She had to be back home at 2:00 so I dropped her off and then came home.

It is warm enough to sit outside on the deck and that is just what I'm going to do.  Sit out on the deck and read.

Hope your enjoying your day.
 Love is when you can be your true self with someone,
and you only want to be your true self because of them.

  1. Sitting outside on the deck reading sounds very pleasant. I could almost do that today. Bet you'd like to find 16 cents every day!

  2. Hooray for John & Petey's good check up. So glad I took a walk today :).
    I'm wondering whether our Nordstrom's has a cafe. I need to check into that.
    I don't know who Terri Guillemets is, but she sure has some good quotes. I Love the one you shared today. Really nice.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful day, Karen. It was very warm here also. We had the windows and doors opened today.. Felt so good... It's truly spring here....

    Have a wonderful Wednesday.

  4. I went to Nordstrom's at Montgomery Mall a few weeks ago and had the same sandwich we had. It wasn't nearly as good, but the cafe itself was so nice. We'll have to go back again.


Hello my friend.

I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
