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 short walk

Friday has arrived and it's been a happy day. : )  Another cold, windy, but sunny spring day.

Home in the morning doing this and that around the house.  I'm able to get most everything I want to get done during the day now.

After lunch I put on a sweatshirt, my jacket with the hood, my walking shoes and went for a little stroll around the block.  It was 38 degrees and the sun was shining.  I walked around the block and up the to liquor store (no coins) and then back home.  It was only one mile but it was nice to be outside and walking.  : )
I was a bit tired after my walk so was glad I stayed close to home and didn't try to over do it.  One mile was just perfect.

Ken and I went out when I got back from my walk to do a few errands around town.  We dropped some books off at the library, stopped in at Rite-Aide, Giant and Walmart.  I got some tee-shirts that were on sale at Walmart for just $3.96!! so I got seven of them.  Now I'm set for summer. : )   I'm happiest in jeans and tee shirts!!
Once we got back home I sat downstairs in my reading chair, put my feet up and read my book.  It's been a good day. : )

Almost time to start supper then it's another nice evening at home.  A little television, a snack (I did have a little ice cream last night) of what I haven't decided yet, and I'm sure more reading.

Hope your Friday has been a good one too.
Happyone : )
No matter how long the winter,
spring is sure to follow.


  1. So glad to hear that you're having a happy day. It must have been wonderful for you to be out walking today. I took a walk today too and was wondering whether you were able to get out. Hooray that you were.
    That's a great sale on the t-shirts.

  2. So proud of you. A one mile walk is perfect... Glad you are smart enough to know when to stop... That is AWESOME. After what you have been through, your energy level will just take some time before you get it all back...

    Have a great weekend. Love the T-shirts...

  3. A nice little walk! Wonderful! Just wonderful! I'm so happy for you!!!


  4. Good to know you're out and about again. Thanks for pacing yourself.
    You chose cheerful colors in your tee shirts.

  5. Glad to see that you are back to walking. You are smart to take it slow and easy. Last summer, about two weeks after my surgery, my doctor told me to really "push myself." That was totally bad advice and I told him next time I saw him. I had to back up, rest and start again, much slower. I love that you are all ready for summer with new t-shirts. Think I'll go to Wal-mart today and see if we have the same sale going out here! Enjoy your weekend!

  6. I am so glad that you were able to have a short walk today and that you are feeling better.

    I wear jeans and t'shirts to. Looks like you got a really good buy!

  7. I just realized what a blessing it must have been to have ken home and retired to take care of you while you were sick! That timing was perfect. Glad you were able to get out for a walk,

  8. I'm so glad you are feeling stronger and know how to pace yourself. It sounds like a perfect Friday.
    Have a good week-end.

  9. A very pleasant and satisfying day. Must have felt great to be outside for a walk at last.

  10. Oh this makes me smile. I know that you'll take it easy and be doing what feels good and right as you continue to heal. It is the perfect time of year for walking!

  11. Yay! You're walking again. As my marathon coach used to say: "Low miles are better than no miles! Slow miles are better than no miles!" Take care of yourself in our "second winter!"

  12. This weekend theyre having a tshirt sale at Joanns fabric store if you have one there. 3.00 each Jerzees brand.
    I have Diverticulitis and I get flare ups when I eat Oats and sometimes wheat products. (possibly Gluten intolerant) I suggest one of the Dummie books. I read it and I am just about positive I have Gluten issues.
    Glad youre better.

  13. You're on your way! Isn't it wonderful to see the sun today(Saturday)?
