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

Baking a cheese cake

Today my walk started at 7:00 when it was still dark and was for another 45 minutes.  The temperature was 40 degrees.  I was walking around town under the street lights and was about a mile from home and when it started raining.  I walked back home and got my umbrella, walked down to the end of the driveway and the rain stopped.  I kept my umbrella with me just in case it started raining again, but it never did and I even got to see some blue sky. : )
Another alley in town.  I like that cute little red house up there at the end.  
Looks like a house from the 50's.
Just a random walk around the town, the cemeteries and the ball park loop.  Saw my horse friend down by the Drane house and he came over by the fence to say hi.  The lone chicken no longer runs to the other side of her pen when I come by.  I think she's happy to see me now!

No people about on this early Saturday morning.  Looking forward to tomorrow morning when it will be lighter earlier.  No more walking in the dark, at least for a little while.

I walked 6.1 miles - 11,867.
Sunrise: 7:47
Sunset: 6:14
Ken went up to Happy Trails in the morning but I stayed home and baked a cake.  It's Ken's birthday tomorrow and I always bake him his favorite cake - Cheese Cake.  You can find the recipe HERE.

We had rain, sun, rain, and sun again here today.  The weather can't seem to make up its mind.  At least the sun came around once in a while. : )

I did more of the cross stitch this afternoon. 
Plan on going out for supper to the Mountain State Brewery for pizza later when Ken gets home. We do like our pizza!! : )

Hope your Saturday is a fun day for you.

Sometimes our light goes out 
but is blown into flame
by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks
to those who have rekindled this light.

Kim - I'll put up a picture of my cross stitch on my 'made my happyone' blog later today. 


  1. Happy Birthday tomorrow to Ken. Cheesecake sounds good!!

  2. Happy early birthday to Ken. Save some cheesecake for me :)

  3. Happy early birthday wishes to Ken! That is the sweetest little red cottage just as darling as can be. You are probably more acutely aware of light during all seasons of the year than anyone I know.
