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

Pink legs

26 degrees and very windy this morning when I walked.  The sun eventually came out and it was actually nice down along the water on the path.  I had a random path walk today and staying down along the path I was protected from the wind. At times I got quite warm.  It was one of those times when I could hear the wind blowing the trees every which way and they made groaning and creaking sounds.  If it was at night it would have been spooky. : )
I saw a few deer and here's a picture of a little one.  It was right beside the path.  Just a little way away was another little one and their mom. 
I spotted a fox off in the woods and tried the zoom on my new camera.  I was pretty far away when I took this.
There were a few people scattered along my walk.

Coming back home someone stopped at the cross walk to let me cross.  It's been quite a while since that has happened!!

Found a few coins - two nickels and a penny.
Steps on my walk were 12,465.
I painted the legs of the trestle table.  I like how it matches the walls in my loft.  I had a couple places on the wall that needed a little touch up so did that too while the paint was out.
 I had some help from Ken to put the table back together.  Now I have no excuse for not starting to sew.

We took a break from the house and went out to do a couple of errands.  Had to return a library book and a couple DVD's to the library.  We looked around and Ken got some CD's out and when he was done he came to find me.  I hadn't found any of the books on my list YET, but was glad I didn't see we left before I could find any.  I have 4 books from the library at home and they are all due at different times!

It's been chilly and windy here but the sun has been out all day and it's been so uplifting to see sunshine again. : )

If you're in the snow storm hope all is well and you see the sun again soon.
Till next time......
A happy day to you.
Happyone : )
Be happy,
and a reason will come along.

  1. Oh that wind must have been nasty. I hate to hear the trees cry like that. It's one of the most mournful sounds on earth. The table came out great and what a good surface for planning things out and working from. It'll prove to be one of your great ideas!

  2. You are already putting the table to good use. I love those weave it square blankets you make! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  3. I'm glad to see that your part of the country was not hit by the blizzard. Was it very close to you? I have seen some pretty amazing pictures of the snow. It's beautiful but I can't even imagine shoveling that much snow.

  4. I like the pink legs. A great idea.
    The fox is really red. You see the neatest things when you are walking.

  5. I really do like that pink table!

  6. The table fits in perfectly in your pink room. It looks like a nice size for working on your sewing/knitting projects.

  7. Enjoy sewing. I think it is one of the coming trends. I hear about it on some of the blogs I listen to - all the time. I won't be getting involved in that. The last time I had a sewing machine, it was a big production every single time I tried to use it - which wasn't often enough to get good at it. And when I was sewing, my projects were always subpar. I will leave sewing to those who can do it with grace (and without swearing). :-)

  8. -giggles- You and the "Pink Legs" title! I'd forgotten about the table already. -chuckle-

    Hooray for having a place to lay out your sewing!!!

    Even if far away, that fox is visible because of his color.


  9. When I read the title about pink legs I thought it was about your legs being cold because of the weather!!


Hello my friend.
