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 happy day

44 degrees this morning and very windy.  The sun came out and then some big black clouds came along and blotted the sun out altogether but before it did the sky was awesome.  Sun on one side, black sky on the other.  I took another picture after this one a few minutes later when I spotted a rainbow.  I put that picture on my photo blog which you can see HERE if you'd like too.

I walked all around town because I thought it would rain any minute but it never did.  About a block away from the Credit Union I found someones Debit card.  I walked by there later again when I knew the CU was to open and handed it to one of the tellers.   Someone is going to be happy.  : )

I saw a bunny rabbit and all the usual birds.

A pretty quiet morning in town.
I walked 6.1 miles.

It was Ken's turn at the dentist this morning.  While he was there I made some chocolate chip cookies.  Tomorrow I'll tell you who they were for.

Ken put all the little hooks on my new blue plates and this afternoon I hung them up over the cabinets.  I'm thinking they look pretty nice.  Only need to find a few more now.

I've been doing some reading on the book for tomorrows book club but I still have about half the book to read.  I will be gone for the day tomorrow but I hope to make it back home before 5:30.

I made the sweet and sour chicken again for supper.  This it turning into something I make often.  It is high up on the list for favorite suppers.  I didn't feel like making it because it is a bit of a bother but I'm so glad I did because it was delicious.

The sun made it out again during the day and the temperature got to 60 again but it stayed windy. 

Hope your day has been a good one and that you smiled often.
A Happy Day to You.

When I was in grade school,
they told me to write down
what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down happy.
They told me I didn't understand the assignment,
I told them they didn't understand life.

Three Happy Things Today
  1. Seeing the blue plates hung above the cabinets
  2. Finding the debit card and thinking how happy the person will be to get it back
  3. Sweet and sour chicken supper

Nellie - No, hasn't been wet enough yet for those rain shoes, but it will be one of these days and I'll be ready. : )


  1. I thought of rain shoes today as I dutifully donned a raincoat and my regular shoes. I really am going to need something different if I am going to walk in all sorts of weather. I certainly didn't go far today. Around the block...a short, quick one...and I was still drenched.

    Must take a look a second look at the chicken recipe since you like it so!

  2. Oh...now I remember...I can't get there without creating my own account.

  3. Hi Karen - good of you to help get that debit card back to the owner. I love the picture of the morning sky - the lighting is very dramatic. Hope the rest of your day goes well and that tomorrow is just as happy for you!

  4. I am so glad you found that person's debit card instead of someone else. I shudder at the thought of losing mine.

  5. Sweet and sour chicken sounds tasty! I just might have to sneak one of those chocolate chip cookies afterwards, too.:-)

    How lucky it was that you found someone's debit card! You saved some very anxious moments, I'm sure.

    It would be a lot of fun looking for plates to go over my cabinets. I've managed to have enough other things for that location, though.

    Have a great day!

  6. Stunning rainbow!

  7. It's always nice to do something like that. You no doubt turned a very frustrating day into a happy ending.

    We do live in an awesome world, don't we?

    I saw a gorgeous rainbow a few weeks ago. It was so bright and it was double. I could not fit it in the camera frame.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
