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

A home day

It was 30 degrees this morning under cloudy skies.  I saw a peek of blue sky for a few minutes and had some snow flurries as well.
Walked one of my paths and sidewalk routes.  In the picture I've left the path and have been walking for a half mile along the sidewalk.  I'm headed on over to the school from here.

I saw a red headed woodpecker and six deer along the path.
I passed a few walkers along the way, a few people walking dogs and a group of three people flying down the road on their bicycles.  They must have been doing 30 miles an hour and they were having a conversation that I could hear because they had to talk loud to hear each other.

Though I haven't seen any daffodils blooming yet, I have seen some starting to sprout up in a few places this morning. 

 Today I took 12,201 steps on my walk.
Sunrise 6:38
Sunset 6:01
We stayed home today.  It's nice not having to do our errands around town on the weekend now if we don't feel like it when it's so crowded everywhere.  We can go anytime we want to during the week. : )

I finished reading the book, Windows on the Parables by Warren W Wiersbe.  It is a book I bought from the bookstore at church.  My Sunday school class has been studying the parables and we are using this book.  It was a good study and I enjoyed the book.

I made some brownies this afternoon.  They are for the dessert social after church tomorrow evening.  A family is moving away and this is to say good bye to them.  I will miss Anne and her beautiful singing voice.  Many times her singing has brought me to tears.  She can also play the piano with an amazing talent.  Their new church is in for a treat! : )

I finished up the last of the chocolate chip mint ice cream this evening watching another episode of Revenge.
Made a few red weave-it squares this evening also.

Hope your Saturday was filled with good things.
Happyone : )
Never tell people how to do things.
Tell them what to do and
they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

Cheryl - No, haven't seen Parenthood but just went to Netflix and added it to my queue.


  1. Good advice...must remember...yes! the best thing about freedom is not to have to run around at the busy times. John and I even went out for supper at 4:30 just to avoid the crowd. Now we really are getting old!

    I made brownies today as well. Wish that I were taking them out of the house.

  2. Sounds like such a nice and relaxing Saturday. My Saturday has just about worn me out and I'm still not finished. Maybe I'll get a bit of nap tomorrow after church. Brownies sound good. Maybe I will make some tomorrow! Enjoy your Sunday!

  3. I think the comment before this one might be spam Karen. Be careful of it.

    I rarely shop on the weekend just for the reasons you mentioned.

    I really liked it when you told us the actual miles you walked instead of the footsteps. Could you do both please. :-)

  4. 'Revenge' tv show... Is it the one, which was new just last year? Or at least, not very old.

    YOung girl is getting revenge, for what was done to her father?

    Never watched it. Will be interested to hear, how you are liking it.

  5. Hi, Revenge is off for a few weeks--but will be back. Great show!!!

    Our temps here stayed in the 20's ALL weekend--even during the day.. Very cold and snowy!!!! We never did get much accumulation though (maybe an inch or less).... NOW--I'm ready for sunshine.

    Yes, weekends are nicer in retirement.


  6. I really admire great musicians. Piano is so difficult - multiple notes and key signatures at the same time!


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
