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

Me! in a choir?

Sedum Autumn Joy in my front garden - taken a few days ago when the sun was shining.
☂     ☂     ☂     ☂
I never got to walk yesterday - woke up a little late and we had to get to church by 9:00 to have the muffins there.  Cake was for the evening.  We were at church pretty much all day.
I have always wanted to sing in a choir at church.  I love to sing all the hymns though I don't sing well at all.  Well, yesterday anyone who wanted to sing in the choir was invited to so I thought this might be my only chance so I did it.  I enjoyed it so much.  Everyone was very encouraging and friendly and made me feel at ease.  My one not so great voice blended in with all the others and it was fine.  I am going to talk to Mark, the music director and if they will have me I'm going to join the choir.  : )  After all in Psalms 98:4 in the Bible it says, Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.......  : )

This morning it was nice to get back to my walk.  It rained all day yesterday (some places around here got 3 inches) and this morning when I left it had stopped.  It was a warm 62 degrees.

Walked over by the industrial park which isn't at all like you are probably picturing.  It is a small one with only 5 businesses there.  The streets have trees and there is even a small pond.  Though I didn't see any today I often see deer, rabbits and all kinds of birds there too.

I stopped in at the laundromat to take down the church flyer that I had put up there.  On the way a misty rain started so I stopped home and got my umbrella.  It rained on and off for the rest of my walk around one of the cemeteries and the ball park loop.  Since there was some wind too my umbrella didn't do much but it DID keep my head dry.

The man walking his two little dogs was out again.
I walked 5.6 miles.

We stayed home today.  I got the house vacuumed and dusted and I moved all my bird collection into the front room by the book cases from the spare room.  I hung the bird jigsaw puzzle that we glued together there too plus a couple other small bird pictures.  I like to change things a bit from time to time.  Gives me something different to look at.  : )

We haven't been to Ledo's for pizza in quite a while so we decided to go there for supper.  I don't think I've ever had a pizza I didn't like. : )

This evening we will be having a nice relaxing evening at home.  We are watching Ballykissangel on Netflix and I'll be knitting on a scarf after I eat my ice cream.  I've been having chocolate marshmallow lately.

Hope your day has been a good one.

they just get on with it.

  1. I do hope you get to be a part of the choir. My dad loved gospel music and had a nice voice. He was hesitant to join the church choir because his hearing wasn't great which I always thought was a shame because he loved the music so much.
    Your relocation of the bird collection sounds nice. I agree, small changes like that are nice for a fresh perspective from time to time.
    Chocolate marshmallow... yumm!!

  2. How exciting to sing in the choir! I think you know how I feel about singing! Great job! I feel the same way about cookies and pizza both, and it is just the way you feel!:-) Have a good evening!

  3. I think it is totally awesome that you are joining the choir at church! The more you sing, the better you will get at it! I'm with you - I never met a pizza I didn't like ;-) So glad you are having a great week!

  4. That must be a fine experience. Greetings and best wishes!

  5. You're so cute! Chocolate marshmallow sounds yummy!
    I like moving things around, too. I'm going to find a place for the angels.
    Sending lots of good fall greetings your way, K!

  6. I'm sure your voice add richness to the choir. I have sung in a choir for years,but that was long ago.

  7. Hi There, Your Autumn Joy Sedum looks a lot like mine. Mine is getting darker and darker... Just gorgeous!!!!

    I say that if you enjoy making a joyful noise unto the Lord, then go for it... Join the choir. You will enjoy it. Just sit next to someone who sings loudly and you can follow them...


  8. That is beautiful sedum...gorgeous color. How cool to join the choir. That's great!

  9. Happy-K, your voice sounds heavenly to God when you sing His praise! Have fun with it.
