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 package

Outside walking at 6:40.  Temperature was 31 degrees and when the sun came up later it stayed out in a blue sky along with some big white clouds.  A nice morning for walking.
I walked a shorter version of one of my connect the path routes.
It was just me and the birds out this morning and there were lots of them.  They were very busy flitting here and there and chattering away.  Birds always seem to be busy and happy. : )

I walked 4.5 miles.
Sunrise 6:55
Sunset 7:30
In the morning we went out and about here and there doing a few errands.   We went early when there weren't many people out yet.

We got home and pulling around back in the driveway Ken noticed a little box in the driveway by the garage and on picking it up discovered it was for me. : )
Blogger and friend Kim from Happy@Home sent me a note saying she was sorry to hear of my hospital stay, a little book of quotes, and this cute ladybug.  How thought of you Kim.  Thank you so much.  You remember I love ladybugs and I will be using many of the quotes on my blog.  : ) 
After lunch I sewed some squares together and read a little.
Remember those mini bird houses I bought last week?  Well today I painted them and they are now hanging on the pegs of the shelf in my bedroom.
If you're of a mind to see how they turned out click HERE.

Just the usual evening at home again - nothing special but we're happy and content and glad to be home.

It's been a pretty nice day. Still a bit cool for sitting out on the deck but it was sunny and we enjoyed the day.

Hope you enjoyed your day and it is beginning to feel more like spring where you are.
Happyone : )
In the bonds of death He lay
Who for our offence was slain;
But the Lord is risen to-day,
Christ hath brought us life again,
Wherefore let us all rejoice,
Singing loud, with cheerful voice,
~ Martin Luther
