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 rainy inside day

A rainy morning walk for me today.  I still haven't bought a new pair of rain pants and it was pouring out so I wore Ken's rain pants.  They are a bit big but they have a draw string, so I just hiked them up practically under my arm pits and I was good to go.  I wore my yellow rain slicker and stayed pretty dry except for my feet.  It was 50 degrees so I didn't have to worry about being cold though it was pretty windy at times.  Sometimes I just take an umbrella but when it's windy I need my rain gear on.  It was nice listening to the rain on my hood, a different sound from the umbrella.

I walked around town and didn't see any one else out.  I did see a rabbit out in the rain though.  The horses don't seem to mind the rain either and Lone Chicken was staying dry under a tin roof over her coop.

I walked 6 miles - 11,730 steps.
Sunrise: 6:53
Sunset: 5:09
It seemed like a good day for pancakes so I made them for our breakfast.

Stayed at home all day.  Finished cleaning and then read.  My book club meets next week so thought I'd better finish the book for it.  It has gotten a little better and I will read it but if not for the book club I wouldn't finish it.  I'm just about half finished with it.

It rained all day until around 4:45 when the clouds started to break up and I could see just a little blue sky.  Then not long after the sun went away for the night.  I took this picture standing on the front porch.  The temperature has gone down all day and it is now 35.
Kenny cooked supper tonight.  He made us sausage and peppers, one of my favorite meals.  It's his Dad's recipe and he often made it for me knowing it was my favorite.  I surly do miss my father in law and not just for his great cooking!!

There's just two more pieces of that cheesecake left and after tonight there won't be any left at all.  : )

Hope your day has brought you happiness.
happyone : )
The gift was not large as money goes,
and my need was not great, 
but the spirit of the gift is beyond price 
and leaves me blessed and in debt.

  1. I hope you've had time to dry out from that walk in the rain this morning. I see cute rain boots all over, but can't convince myself that I need some. Maybe that would be good for your Christmas list.:-)

    Our temperature has lowered today, too, and it will once again be chilly tonight.

    Your supper sounds great! I give Ken a thumbs up!

    Enjoy that cheesecake!

  2. What a lovely, cozy day. Sounds really nice. So nice of Ken to fix dinner and help out. Remind me what book you are reading for your book club. Enjoy your Friday!

  3. I admire the way you don't let the rain stop you from your daily walk.
    Dinner sounds good and extra special that Ken is the chef tonight.

  4. Why is it that every time I catch up with your day, I start feeling hungry? ;^)

    Good for you, not letting a little rain stop you. Enjoy your Friday. Art

  5. To me, every day is a good day for pancakes :)

  6. I think I need a few days of staying home in the rain...pretty photos also

  7. I hear we may be in for some snow next week.....I bet if anyone get is it will be you :)
