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

Christmas Cards

It was even warmer this morning at 40 degrees!!!  No wind either.  I didn't leave until 7:00 and by then it was getting light.  I saw a bit of sun and then it got cloudy.

Stayed walking in town and just had a random walk. Remember I met Sylvia the other day? Today I met her husband Dave.  It was his turn to walk the dog.

Walked around the cemeteries and stopped to read a few tombstones.
Here's one of them.
I walked 6.2 miles - 12,477 steps.
Found a penny.
Sunrise: 7:21
Sunset: 4:53
I spent a good part of the day writing out Christmas cards and I got them completely done.  I don't think I have ever written them all out in one day in my entire life!!!  I enjoyed doing it but am glad to have that finished.  I know a lot of people don't do Christmas cards anymore but I still enjoy doing it.  I skipped one year and really missed it.
One break I walked over to see Sherry at the hair salon to see where I should drop off the Welsh Cookies for the bake sale but she wasn't there so I still have the cookies here at home.
Another break I walked over to the library to drop off some videos that the grands watched when they were here.  We had gotten a whole bunch for them to pick from.  Only watched two of them.

Two friends from church were in the neighborhood and stopped by for a little visit.

I started reading Orphan Train which is the book club selection for this month which meets a week from today.  I am happy to say that I already like it.  : )

I made a few extra Welsh Cookies and I'm going to have a few of them for my snack later.  One thing really nice about those cookies is that each one is only 40 calories.

Hope you had a sunny and happy day.
happyone : )
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas......perhaps........means a little bit more!
~ Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas


  1. As you already know, I also enjoy doing Christmas cards and I always get mine out early so I can hear back from as many people as possible. To me, it is an enjoyable part of Christmas. Those Welsh Cookies sound so good. Did you share the recipe and I missed it?? I had a visit from a couple of ladies from our church today too! Enjoy your evening and see you tomorrow!

  2. Congratulations on getting your cards all done in one day. I haven't even started yet. I do like to send them too. It seems like every year we receive less. I hate to think of the day when they become extinct.
    Sounds like you had a nice day. I'll have to look into the book.

  3. Now I'm wondering what two you watched. Christmas cards are low on my list this year, but I may get around to it. One never knows!

  4. You have my hearty congratulations on completing those cards in one day!

    Those cookies sound like my kind of cookie - only 40 calories each!

  5. All your Christmas cards in one day, I admire you. I wrote out two today; it is a start. I love this tradition and you can display the cards rather than an email card.

  6. I like reading tombstones in really old cemeteries. There's on old cemetery next to my mom and dad's house with dates from the 1800s. I find it fascinating.

  7. I am still debating on whether to do some this year. Congrats on getting yours done :)
