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

Happy LC

One of those rainy mornings for my walk but I didn't mind.  It wasn't cold, the temperature was 45 degrees.
I wore Ken's rain pants again with a hooded sweat shirt and took along my umbrella. It wasn't raining hard but there was a bit of a breeze and I thought I'd be better off with my yellow rain slicker.  So I went back inside and traded my umbrella and sweatshirt for the slicker. 
I also wore hiking shoes instead of walking shoes because they keep my feet drier.  They did still get wet but not wringing sock out wet.

I had a random walk around town.  Just up and down all the streets and around the cemeteries.  I saw Lisa and her husband walking (she usually runs alone) and another woman walking.

Made a pass by LC and all the chickens seem to be getting along fine.  They were all milling about.  LC looks mighty happy perched up there above the rest of them. : )  Today they had spaghetti for the dinning pleasure!!
I walked  6.1 miles - 12,490 steps.
Found another penny!
Did some house work this morning.  Rainy days are good for that.
After lunch I baked another batch of pumpkin bread (6 small loaves) and put them in the freezer.

It rained all day and by suppertime we were ready to get out of the house for a bit.  We both were in the mood for a burger so we went to ACE down the road for supper. We sat in the cozy room with the fireplace and enjoyed a good burger!!

The book that I'm reading is due on Monday at the library so I think I'll go and read in just a bit until it's time for some television and snack.  Chocolate chip mint ice cream for me. : )

A happy day to you.
happyone : )
I'm thankful 
for a pair of shoes that feel really good on my feet,
I like my shoes.

  1. Johnny said that? Well I feel the same way, but am having such trouble with it. Hope that I find some soon. It's getting cold. ; >

    You are so much fun! Who else would be so happy about finding a penny?!

  2. What a lovely, relaxing, rainy day. We are having a rainy day here too - more rain tomorrow. Maybe I will bake some pumpkin bread. That sounds good. Enjoy your book. Hope you like it better than the last one. I'm reading an Amish Christmas story right now - I like those. Books where the characters believe in God and pray and turn to the bible for answers have got to be my favorites! Enjoy your weekend.

  3. LC sounds like he is very well fed.
    I agree rainy days are good for housework and baking too.
    Good selection on your ice cream today :).

  4. We have had drizzle here on and off all day. I'm glad you enjoyed your walk this morning. LC has probably appointed herself as the queen of the chicken coop!:-)

    I think Johnny Cash probably knew what it was like to be without shoes.

  5. I always loved Johnny Cash! I saw him in person several times.

    The chicks all look happy to be in out of the rain.

  6. We are getting the rain today. I reckon....glad you could get out in it
