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

An old project

A windy, sunny  morning with a temperature of 28 degrees.  I walked around the lake.  The water level is lower than usual.  They must be going to do some work somewhere so they've drained some water off.  Last time they worked on the boat ramp.  We shall just have to wait and see.

A few others out early this morning, but not many.  I stopped and had a chat with Barb.  A man I see most days but don't know his name said I should get a pair of gloves to wear.  I told him I tuck my hands up inside my coat and they stay toasty warm.  Today in fact my hands were sweating!  Gloves actually make my hands cold.
Another man Sharoz (don't know the right spelling) asked if I was wearing enough clothes to keep warm.  I told yes that I had 5 layers on and was nice and warm.  Funny that two different people asked about be being warm enough!

I saw a couple of deer and some blue birds on the path behind the church.  It is hard for me to get a picture of the blue birds because they flit about so much but I snapped this one, though it is blurry.
I found a dime and a penny.
Steps for my walk today were 12,860.
Thanks for all your concern for my health.  I'm feeling quite good today but still have that cough and I'm sure it will hang around for a while.  

My box of shredding stuff was getting pretty full so I did some shredding today.  From now on I'm going to leave the shredder out in my office and just run things through it when something needs to get shredded.  Why save the stuff up.  Now that I have an office I can leave it out.

I was going to start a new knitting project yesterday but came across a blue cable scarf that I started knitting quite a while ago and thought I'd finish that before starting on something else.  I looked it up on my made by happyone blog and see that it has been just about 2 years ago that I started it.  IT IS time I finished it.  To see a picture of it click HERE.

I think I'll read for a bit and then do some more knitting before it's time to cook supper.

Till next time......
A happy day to you.
Happyone :)

I believe that tomorrow is another day and
I believe in miracles.

  1. Glad you're feeling better. It IS a bit brisk today, isn't it?!

    What a great shot of the blue bird! It's not that blurry -- remarkable as you're right: they move really fast!

  2. Another beautiful sunrise picture. I love your scarf. I am working on two scarfs right now...hoping to do an update post in just a bit. Also a great quote from Audrey Hepburn. Glad you are feeling a little better.

  3. Hope you keep improving; don't want that cold to get you down. Loving the pictures from your new camera.
    Happy Knitting!

  4. The wind is howling and it's so chilly out as I read this. It's the wind that makes it so bad. I hope tomorrow morning is sunny for your walk. Happy night to you!

  5. The wind here has made it really chilly, though we have had sunshine. Good for you for finishing that project.

  6. The blue scarf is lovely! I am glad you are going to finish it!

  7. Beautiful photo!

    Your 5 layers must not have looked bulky enough, to keep you warm. -grin-

    I'm glad the health thing has not progressed. But I will *CLAIM* that that is because you have been listening to your body's messages. :-))))) You know I can't pass that statement up, don't you? -grin-


    Oh and sweet bluebird pic, even if he is flittttty, and hard to capture. :-))))))
