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

Not tip top

It was 32 degrees this morning for my walk.  I took this picture from the back parking lot of the Giant across the street from my house.  I really like the purple clouds.  Don't remember ever seeing purple ones!  It was beautiful - the picture just doesn't do it justice.
The sun is coming up earlier now and I don't have to start walking in the dark anymore. 
I saw a little bit of blue sky but then the clouds took over and the rest of the walk was cloudy and then the wind picked up.  I was starting to get a little bit warm so the wind felt good.  Temperature was on the rise too and it was 40 degrees when I got home.  

I walked the connect the path route with the trail behind the school.
I counted 8 deer along one of the paths.  Heard a few woodpeckers but just couldn't find them.
A few people were scattered here and there along my walk - all people I've seen before.

My walk today was 12,280 steps.
My scratchy throat from yesterday has turned into a dry annoying cough and I can tell I'm not in tip top shape because after my walk today I was a bit tired and my walk usually gives me more energy.  

By the time I was to leave for knitting it had started raining with some snow mixed in and I just didn't feel like going out.   I just wanted to sit in the chair by the window in the living room and read my book.  So that's what I did. 

I did get up from time to time to get a few chores done, but only the things that I had to do. 

We had a nice time eating out with our friends last night who we hadn't seen since May!!!  Jackie has had to make some changes to her diet which now has to be gluten free.  I right away thought of you Auntie and mentioned that I had a blogger friend who couldn't have gluten either.  The pizza place we went to had gluten free pizza and Jackie said it was the best she's had yet.  Not as good as the real thing but not bad.  I took a picture of her pizza.
The rest of us had the regular pizza.  I had a little taste of the gluten free crust and it wasn't bad.

The rest of the afternoon I plan to just take it easy.  Maybe I'll start a knitting project.  Give me a break from making weave-it squares.

Till next time........
A happy day to you my friends.

  1. Exactly so! (The quote) I was just talking to a friend about that very point this morning.

    I'm glad that you listened to yourself and stayed home resting a bit.

    I hope that I never have to go gluten free. I'd hate it. Sigh.

  2. That is a BEAUTIFUL morning sky! That's why I prefer sunruses over snusets :)

    And that pizza looks amazing!

  3. It seems as though there are a lot more people finding it necessary to eat gluten free. I'm glad they are coming up with more options for them. The pizza looks pretty good.
    So sorry to hear that you're not feeling tip top today. You are wise to take it easy and relax today.

  4. Bless your heart. Hope you start feeling better soon. Stay home and get well!!!!!

    Amazing what they are doing for those who can't eat gluten these days. That pizza looks so good.


  5. The purple sky is beautiful!

    I hope you feel better soon!!

  6. I love the purple sunrise. I think you did the right thing to just stay home and rest when it is cold and wet outside. The pizza sure looks good -- even gluten free. So fun to get together with friends. We have had friends from out of state visiting all long weekend. Great times! Enjoy the rest of the week.

  7. Take care of yourself!

    Pizza! Yum! One of my favorites!

  8. HOPE you feel better soon! Love your purple clouds!

  9. WEll, we missed you at knitting today. One of the folks said something about you rsvping that you were coming. WE just figured that the weather kept you in. See you next week.

  10. So glad you are listening to your body, and not pushing it... That over-sleeping yesterday, probably was the first sigh, that your body was trying to fight off a cold.

    Keep listening, please. To what your body is telling you... Who knows better, hu? :-)

    Oh yes, it's delightful to find a gluten free pizza place!!! The one in these parts, makes an individual pizza (with salad), and I like that way too.

    Hope she is finding how to live with being G/F. It's a trial and error task, me-thinks.

    Remember.... Rest.... :-) Please........................

    No one wants to have to live G/F. Too many changes.

    But believe me, when it becomes necessary to live G/F... It's EASY. Because to not change, is so horrrrrible. (Living in the "Loo" 24/7) -grin-

  12. Good to listen to your body. Love the picture of the clouds. Even if you think it did not do it justice (hard to top Mother Nature with a photo) it is still lovely. Enjoy your day. Art
