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

Lasagna in a loaf pan

This is not from my yard but it is the first daffodil I've seen blooming on my walk.
☁     ☁     ☁     ☁

50 degrees again this morning and cloudy as I headed out for my walk.  Dropped off the water bill down the slot at public works and then went down the main road past the HT turn off for a bit and then turned around and walked back to town. 

Walked round the two cemeteries and ball park and then headed home.

The same man from yesterday was fishing in the little town pond.  I've seen them stock the pond so I guess he's catching fish there.  I saw a couple of red-winged black birds and a woodpecker too.

Nice to know that spring is here and I'll be able to walk outside now for months and months and not to have to worry about snow and it being too cold. : )

I walked 6.2 miles.
☁     ☁     ☁     ☁
I finished the last few weave-it squares on the baby blanket last night and have started sewing it together.  Should be done in a few days.

After lunch we went for a little ride exploring some of the back roads that we've never been on before.  Fun to see where they come out.  We stopped at McDonald's and got ice cream cones.  Simple pleasures during the day.  : )

I made lasagna for supper.  I've been craving some since last week when we were gone.  I use the no boil noodles which makes it super easy to make and I always wonder why I don't make this more often for supper.  I made it a bit different today.  I only had 6 of the lasagna sheets so didn't have enough to make layers in a baking dish.  So I made it in a loaf pan with 6 layers of one lasagna sheet per layer.  We each had a pretty good sized portion and there is one more serving for a lunch.

No ice cream snack tonight since we had some earlier.  I will have a little something though but not sure what.

Just another Thank You for the cards for my mom. : )  I'm hearing from people telling me they have sent off cards already. Some people having trouble finding my email address so here it is:  redc5@myway.com

Hope your day has been a happy one.

  1. Sounds like a lovely day...love those simple pleasures :)

  2. A sure sign that spring is on the horizon.
    Brett and I stopped at McDonald's for ice cream both ways on our recent trip. It helped to break up the long drive.
    What a lovely thought to think of your mom receiving cards from so many kind and caring folks. I'm planning to put one in the mail tomorrow. Have received the address from you. Thanks.

  3. Our daffodils are on the wane, and the tulips are in full bloom! Love those no-boil lasagna noodles! I think the loaf pan was a marvelous idea! Love leftovers, too.:-)

  4. I'll mail my card tomorrow. Dinner sounds tasty! Smart!

  5. I love the idea of lasagna in a loaf pan - a perfect dinner for two! I have sent you an email - send me your mother's address. I would love to send her a card! Have a great day!

  6. Love the daffies! I am glad the weather is finally warming up. We had a few days of clouds and rain though! The lasagna sounds yummy..Have a happy Friday!

  7. Sure like your new header. Have you shared your recipe for lasagna before? Have a good weekend!

  8. Hi, Glad you are getting some lasting Spring there now... It certainly makes walking outside much easier!

    Your lasagna sounds great... Good idea to use the loaf pan.

  9. Welcome daffodills! mary jo

  10. Never has a little cheery yellow daffodil been so welcomed! I would faint if I saw one here. I am just back from mailing a card. =D Course I didn't walk to the PO as you would have done. Hope that your mom is doing even better than can be expected!

  11. A loaf pan sounds like a nice size. I like the no-boil noodles, too. Wish they came in a whole-grain variety. Thanks for sharing your email address--and the reminder. Since I aggravated my back, everything else seems to have slipped my mind!

  12. Glad your mother is enjoying all of the cards.
