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 trip to the dentist

We never did get any more snow or rain during the night so the big storm never materialized here.  It was 33 degrees this morning but it must have been below freezing last night because there were icy patches in places so I had to be careful walking.  All the footbridges had a crunchy, icy snow on them.
I walked around the lake.  There were very few people out and it was very quiet.  That is except for the geese.  They are always noisy.

Sometimes walking along there are good smells of breakfast cooking coming from houses and from the Giant I smell baked goods.  Today walking along I smelled chicken noodle soup!

A beautiful morning walk and so nice to be outside.
 I walked 6.3 miles.
Steps 12,349
Sunrise 6:31
Sunset 6:06
We had dental appointments this morning for just a cleaning.  I was first and though my cleaning went fine the dentist did find a small cavity.  He asked if I wanted him to fix it now or make another appointment.  I choose for him to do it now to get it over with.  It was just a small one so I didn't even need a shot for pain and I didn't feel a thing.  It worked out good me being first because while Ken was having his teeth cleaned I got my filling done.  Ken's teeth, by the way were fine - just a cleaning for him.
Those cookies I baked yesterday I brought to the dentist office for everyone.  They always look forward to my appointment because of the cookies. : )

We did a few errands while we were out before heading back home.

We went out again after supper to pick up some ice cream.  It's been a few days since we had any and I needed some tonight. : )  It was on sale so we bought enough to last awhile.  Can you guess what flavor I had?
Our TV viewing pleasure tonight was another Wallander episode from Netflix.  This episode was the same as the book Faceless Killers that I just finished reading.  Though the show was good, it wasn't nearly as good as the book. 

Hope your day was filled with sunshine and you got to eat a bowl of ice cream!
Happyone : )
If you guessed the flavor ice cream of Chocolate Cupcake you guessed right.  It was pretty good but I should have had the chocolate chip.

Vee - The path around the lake they do clear and put down kitty litter on the icy spots but just on the main path.  The paths throughout the neighborhoods, sometimes they do and sometimes they don't and just parts of them.


  1. Glad your weather cleared up and you had such a lovely and refreshing morning walk! Boy that ice cream looks mighty tempting! You picked some great flavors! You must have a big freezer. Congrats on a good dental check-up!

  2. Looks like a great walk for you today. We still haven't had any blue skies... Hopefully we will this weekend.

    I would have chosen the Banana Split Ice Cream --since I'm not crazy about chocolate... (I would love your Chocolate Chip cookies though.)

    Glad you both got good reports at the dentist.


  3. I did have a sunny day and I got to eat a bowl of ice cream! :-)

    I had a trip to the dentist on Monday and have one more trip to go to finish the crown.

    I am glad your reports were good at the dentist.

  4. Oh my goodness I would be in absolute heaven with all that ice cream :)

    I'm guessing...choco chip?

  5. A lovely variety of ice cream! Butterscotch Krimpet sounds particularly lovely.

    Always good to get a good report at the dentist's office.

    The second photo is glorious...that ruddy hue and the blue, blue sky.

  6. Re: You reply to Vee's question...

    I have another question. -grin- I can see that some "authority" takes care of the main path around the lake. But are the neighboring neighborhoods, under that "authority," for cleaning streets, too?

    I'm guess my question is....Are the neighborhood part of the lake complex, as it were?


  7. You have a SPAM, from an Anonymous Commenter... :-(


  8. Not too much sunshine - until this afternoon (Friday), and it has been a very long time since I enjoyed a dish of ice cream. That is something I have to watch to keep it from being visible around my waist.:-)

  9. Oh geez, it looks like the spammers have been visiting you :/.
    Woo Hoo, I did choose the chocolate cupcake. It sounds like it would be really good, but you can never go wrong with chocolate chip (in my humble opinion). We're getting ready to watch a bit of tv now and I'm hoping that a small ice cream sundae will be part of the deal.


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