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

Baby Blankets

☀     ☀     ☀     ☀
Left the house this morning at 0 dark 30 with a temperature of 40 degrees.  A nice crisp fall morning.
Drane House

Walked up and down all the streets in town and down the main road out towards HT.  It has been so dark that I like to stay around town under the street lights.

A couple of rabbits were hopping around by the cemetery and a couple of people were out walking dogs.

Waved to all the usual people in their cars, trucks, and buses.

Always enjoy these nice crisp mornings.
Walked 5.5 miles.

 Today was the first of a new project for the women of my church - making baby blankets for the newborns at the local hospital.  Only 8 of us showed up but we had a good time learning how to make simple baby blankets out of two layers of fleece.  The ends are cut into strips 3 inches long and then tied in square knots.  A couple of people had made them before but it was a new thing for most of us.  It is very easy though a little slow going for us beginners, but Charlotte has made many and she finished hers in the two hours we were there.  So we have our very first blanket done.

We found this jaw bone with some teeth in it at HT.  Pretty sure it's a deer.

We went out for supper tonight at Uno's.  With all the running around and cooking I've been doing lately, it was nice to sit down and be waited on. : )

That's it for today.  Hope yours was a happy one.

  1. That's a good idea to stay under the street lamps when it's so dark.

  2. Bankers like that are so soft and cuddly.Some Mamas and babies will be very happy to receive them.

  3. The blankets look so soft. What a nice thing for you ladies to do.
    I hate to imagine what happened to that poor deer. The bones are quite a cool find though.

  4. I know the babies will be nice and warm snuggled in their blankets. You ladies spend time doing good things. God bless you. MJ

  5. I love the baby blankets that your church is going to provide for the local hospital. They look so warm and soft!

    Tomorrow will be the first day that I will be home to walk by myself in the mornings. We've been walking for a bit after Carroll gets in from work, but I like morning walks the best! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  6. The blanket is cute, what a lovely idea. Your sunrise images are pretty. It is ncie to be waited on once in a while. Have a happy day!

  7. I love the blanket. What a wonderful thing to do. And I'm sure the families are so grateful. :)

    Yes. I would want to walk under the lights too.

  8. What a wonderful thing you and the other ladies did. The blankets look beautiful.
    Have a great weekend Karen.

  9. Those blankets are adorable! What a cute pattern with the one being held up. They will be so appreciated by the new moms.

  10. What a nice project!

    The jawbone looks like a deer to me as well.
