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

The Piece of Cake : )

Thank you all so much for all the birthday wishes and the kind words from yesterday.  They are all appreciated.  Thanks my friends! : )

This morning the muggy weather was gone.  The weather was pleasant at 62 degrees, sunny with a cool breeze.  Didn't walk any of my regular routes but just had a random walk here and there.  Happened to see Ken drive down the road on his way to work but he didn't see me.  There he goes in his yellow car.
I stayed on the sidewalks and just walked around the different neighborhoods.  I made a pit stop back at home after a few miles.  Then stayed and watered the flowers in the front yard.  Then I left again to walk the rest of my 6 miles.  That was different.  I've never water flowers in the middle of a walk before.  I saw and heard lots of birds but that was it for wildlife. 
I found a dime along the way today.
This month the coins I found on my walk added up to 70 cents.
1 quarter, 3 dimes, 1 nickel, and 10 pennies.
The birthday day cake was super delicious.  As promised here's a picture of the piece I ate.  Look how think that whipped cream is.  Boy was it good.  I don't even want to think how many calories are in that one piece.  : )
I did a couple more loads of laundry and hung them out to dry.  The two of us sure accumulate a lot of dirty cloths!!

I've been home today having one of those puttering days around the house.  Had plans to get more work done but got distracted easily and didn't really do much work.

My friend Jackie suggested we all go out for pizza tonight so that will be supper.  How could I possibly say no to pizza!! ?  So another day of eating out.

Hope you're having a day filled with sunshine.
I've come across a lot of friend quotes, so for a while my quotes for the day will be about friends.

  1. I was hoping you'd show a photo of the inside of that cake!!!!

  2. The cake looks as delicious as I thought it would. How nice of your husband to make you one. Have a great weekend - it is the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebration weekend so a big 4 day holiday for the majority of the UK.

  3. The cake looks so good! I would love to see the recipe. Does he make it homemade or start with a cake mix?

  4. You are a gal who can enjoy her birthday cake without a qualm or a worry and I know that you did! How can you be sure that Ken didn't see you? Does he honk the horn when he does? ☺

    Have a fun evening enjoying pizza with friends!

  5. Love today's quote. It's so true.
    The cake looks lucious.

  6. Happy belated Birthday! The cake looks yummy!

  7. Mmmm... the cake looks sooo good.
    Will you have another piece after your pizza tonight?

  8. Oh-mercy-me! Look at that cake!!! Simply deeeeeeeeeeelicious, I'm sure. :-)

  9. YUM---that cake looks AWESOME... What a great hubby you have!!!!! Sounds like you had a great birthday.

  10. Hi Karen - a very happy birthday to you, a couple of days late! Please save me some of that delicious cake, because I am hot on your heels and reaching fast for 61 myself. 1.5 months to go for me.

    Hey, did you know that at age 62, you can get a lifetime US National Parks pass for $10? Now is that a deal or what? Art
