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

Game Night

☂     ☂     ☂     ☂
It was a rainy morning today and 58 degrees when I headed out on my walk today. Wore my rain pants and yellow slicker.  Good choice as the rain was mostly misting and the umbrella wouldn't have done much good.

Dropped a book down the library shoot.  Didn't finish reading it but want to as it is a good book but it was due and couldn't be renewed. I've put it back on the reserve list.  Its the book club selection for this month so I won't be going to the meeting tomorrow because I don't want to know the ending.

Walked up and down and all around the streets in town and the ball park loop.

Saw a few rabbits and geese flying but that's about it.
Didn't take any pictures on my walk.  The above picture was taken yesterday.
I walked 5.3 miles.

 Sounds like quite a few people have had to deal with migraines.  Sure hope none of us ever have one again!!!

It's game night at our house tonight and I've been sprucing the house up a bit for that. 
The 8 of us will have dinner before playing Mexican Train.  Ken and I thought it would be fun to have a Mexican meal so I'm making Chicken Enchiladas with rice.  Salsa and chips will be served too.
The dessert isn't Mexican but one I thought everyone would like. Creme Puffs.  Here they are out of the oven before they are filled and drizzled with chocolate.
I'll take another picture when they are finished.  Posting a bit early today because I'm going to get back to work in the kitchen.  Probably won't get a chance to blog later.

Hope your day as been a happy one.

Thanks everyone for all those encouraging words about me being in the church choir.
Karen - I don't think I'll ever be doing a solo, but that was kind of you to say.  I am not being modest when I say I can't sing. : ) 


  1. Game night sounds great! Is your gaming group couples you met from your church? I love the idea of the enchiladas for dinner. Yum!

  2. Yum! Cream puffs! They look so pretty!

  3. Game night sounds like such fun!
    Delicious looking cream puffs too.

    Enjoy your evening with friends :)

  4. My boss gets migraines all the time. Before she got promoted to be my boss, she'd often call out because they would hurt so bad.

  5. Game night sounds like a ton of fun! Your cream puffs are looking great. It has been a very long time since I've made those. Your guests are going to truly enjoy the food and the fellowship. :)

  6. Your evening sounds like such fun! I love playing Mexican Train Dominoes! Your dinner sounds delicious! Have a great time!

  7. Hi Karen, I've been out of town and stopping by tonight to catch up. A shame you couldn't renew the book in time for book club. I'm now curious to know the name of the book. Your game night sounds like a lot of fun and the menu sounds perfect. I love creme puffs, but haven't made them in years. Your guests are in for a treat. Off to find out who had a migraine.

  8. Hello. Your game night sounds delightful! I hope you don't have to wait too long to get that book again. I'm sure you're looking forward to seeing how it ends. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you have a lovely day.
