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.

Time out, a walk, and home

A chilly, windy but sunny spring day.  If it wasn't for the wind it would be really nice out.

I ran out of the yarn I was using and couldn't find it at Jo-ann Fabrics, Walmart, or Michaels near home so we went out this morning to  A.C Moore which is another craft store and I'm happy to say they had some.  The color is called Embroidery.
I also got three more tee shirts there - 3 for $10 - nice springy colors.
The three mini birdhouses I'm going to paint and hang from the pegs on a shelf I have in my bedroom which has some porcelain birds on it.  Other goodies I got were some gift bags, iron transfer paper, and some stuff to preserve the bird puzzle that I finished a few weeks ago. 

We had lunch when we got back home and then I went for another little afternoon walk.  This time I walked over past the Giant and headed down the road for a little bit.  The sun was shining it was 45 degrees out but windy.  I spotted a couple of Robins in the trees and saw a crocus blooming.  I could almost believe it is spring. : )
Today I walked 1.4 miles. : ) 

I read some more this afternoon and did a little knitting too.  It's been another good day. : )

Hope your day is sunny and bright.
Happyone : )
If we had no winter,
the spring would not be so pleasant.

  1. A.C. Moore sounds like a fun store. You got some treasures! I like the colors or your t-shirts. You are gradually increasing the length of your walks so that is good. Hope you will show us your bird houses when you get them painted.

  2. We have an A.C. Moore in the mall here. Wayyyyyy back, the name was "Sew-Fro." So you can guess... I still refer to it, by the old sewing-items-etc. store name. :-)

    Glad you are having another good day.

    And tomorrow, Sun., is HOORAY DAY! When you down your last anti-biotic pill! :-)))))))) They are awful, but they do wonders too. When needed.

    Hugs,

  4. And the grass is beginning to green. I buy lots t-shirts, too, all white ones, though. I like your colors. Glad that you were able to find the yarn; otherwise, it would just be frustrating.

  5. It's great to buy a hard-to-find item, I know I feel like I've found a treasure. Good job on the walking, don't push it, you'll get back to your usually mileage soon enough, let your body decide. Can you believe this silly weather we're having - warm & cold??
