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

The Puzzle

It was 35 degrees this morning, cloudy but no wind.  With my camera kind of working and all taped up with duct tape I left on my walk and I walked the farm loop. 
Farmer Bill told me a while ago that he was going to put up a green house and I see today that he has started it.
I saw a ground hog again and he disappeared in a flash down his home.  It is quite a big hole.  I went up the bank on the side of the road and took a picture of it and the ground hog was long gone.
Since there was no school today there was less traffic (not there ever is very much) than usual. 
I went home after walking the loop for a pit stop and then left again to finish my walk. Remembered my library book this time and dropped it down the slot at the library and then walked around town.  The loop is just over four miles so just had a couple of miles left to walk.
I walked 6.4 miles.

A little after breakfast we went to LaVale to Kohls.  We had a coupon for 30% off.  So with their sale and our coupon it was a good savings.  Only thing was we didn't find anything to buy.  I need some dresses for church and just couldn't find any I liked.  We then headed to the mall to Penny's and I didn't find anything there either.  I tried on seven dresses and none of them were right.
They just don't make dresses for woman in my age group. : )

Though we didn't get anything at least we had a nice ride and a day out.

I didn't do a thing when we got home but work on the puzzle.  Ken helped a little but I mostly did it on my own.  It was a fun puzzle to do.
I'm getting hungry about now so off I go to have some supper.  Having the left overs from yesterday's eating out supper.

Hope your day is a happy one and you smiled often.

Three Happy Things
  1. My camera is working 
  2. Didn't buy anything but didn't spend anything either
  3. A afternoon spent doing a puzzle


  1. Is it as chilly there as it is here? (And now the weatherman says that we're in a cooler pattern for the month of May.) My grandson wanted to go on a walk today with me so we walked to the river (my regular route). He said that it wasn't far enough. Gosh I was tuckered when we finally got home. Now you didn't mention what the leftovers are.

  2. I hear you on the dress shopping! I like Stein Mart here. They seem to have styles more appropriate for my age.

    That is definitely a big hole for that groundhog!

    I like that finished puzzle.

    Have a good Friday evening!

  3. I have an awful time finding anything I like while shopping. Everything is geared for younger people.

    Have a happy Easter Karen! Blessings to you and Ken.

  4. That is quite a green house! I noticed the photo before I started reading and thought perhaps you and Ken were starting a new project! :D

    That's a well-concealed ground hog hole. It'd be easy (for me) to not notice it and then catch my foot in it.

    You sound like me - I went dress shopping on Thursday and couldn't find anything suitable for church. The dresses are either too short, too revealing, too frumpy, or are fabrics/patterns we wore 30-40 years ago. I went to Kohl's, Penneys, Christopher & Banks, and Coldwater Creek and came home with NO new dresses. I had some really good coupons, too.

    Cute puzzle - looks like it had some challenging moments!

    Wishing you and Ken a very blessed Easter -


  5. I know what you mean about dresses. I have a hard time finding good ones too so I wear a lot of skirts with different tops - it makes for a lot of variety : ) I love that puzzle. I have been working hard on mine today and think I will be finished before long - maybe even tonight. Glad your camera is working again.

  6. My husky, decades ago, would thrust 2/3 of his body down a groundhog hole, hoping to get lucky! I always worried that the groundhog would take a chunk out of his nose!

    What a great and colorful puzzle!
    Enjoy the weekend, and Easter. Art

  7. I am intrigued by your comment about duct tape and your camera.....!

    Have a lovely weekend :)
