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

Rainy but still a nice day : )

Well the rain and wind are still here but this morning the rain stopped for me so I could take my walk. : )  It was 44 degrees and here at the cemetery I could see the rain coming my way but I made it home before it actually got to me.
 I stayed around town again so I could hurry home once the rain came.  I noticed this gravestone in a back yard on one of the side streets in town.  Never noticed that it was a gravestone before.  Last summer it was amongst lots of flowers and I thought it was a stone decoration in the middle of them.  At first I thought maybe it was a dogs grave but doubt whether it would have a full name.  Must be a child only 12 years old.  Sad.
I didn't see anyone else out again.  It was a dreary morning but sure glad I was able to have a nice walk.

I walked 6.2 miles.
Found a dime. : )
That makes 11 cents this month.

After lunch we went to do a little food shopping at Walmart and the Shop and Save.  Nice to get out of the house for a little while.  The rain stopped this afternoon but it's been a cloudy dreary day and more rain is on the way.

I baked some chocolate chippers this afternoon to take to Cherry Hill tomorrow. 
Continued reading my book this afternoon and also did a little knitting.

Hope your day was one that made you smile.

How beautiful a day can be
when kindness touches it.

Three Happy Things
  1. Finding a lucky dime
  2. Baking cookies
  3. Seeing the look on Ken's face eating a chocolate chipper


  1. Last day for April Showers!

  2. Maybe May will bring beautiful, sunny days. Mary Jo

  3. I would smile too if I was the recipient of one of your chocolate chippers. Do you use the recipe on the chocolate chip bag?

  4. YUM..... I can almost taste those cookies from here. Would LOVE some!!!!!

    We have had almost 6 inches of rain this week. Hope that means lots of pretty flowers in May!!!!


  5. Guess we're under the same weather cloud again! Sounds like the same temps, too. You're so good at finding the joys along the way. Hey! Things are looking up...a dime!

  6. Late commenting on this. Somehow the time got away from me yesterday! Those chocolate chippers will really be enjoyed at Cherry Hill! Have a good Thursday!
