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

Shoes bring me luck : )

☁     ☁     ☁     ☁

Rained during the night and was VERY windy but by morning it had stopped. It was 38 degrees with foggy patches and cloudy.  Got a quick glimpse of the sun and blue sky just to let me know that it is still up there somewhere! 

There was a lot of tree debris in the roads from the wind last night.

I walked around town and mapped out a new and better route for my town walk.  I walk the 3 main roads and a couple of times around the cemeteries and ball park loop.  I can always add or subtract easily to this route when time is a factor.

No one else out this morning.
The horses down by the Drane house didn't even come over to see me.
I walked 5.5 miles.

Pastor Leatherman's father is visiting for a couple of weeks and we picked him up and brought him along for bowling day.  There were nine of us this time.  The lanes were crowded today.  We usually have the place pretty much to ourselves but this week with all the kids off of school and no snow to go skiing they must have all come bowling.

My new bowling shoes must have brought me luck because I bowled pretty good.  My scores this week were
  1. 129
  2. 148
  3. 161
in that order.   I think 161 is my highest score since we've started bowling again.  My highest all time high score is 185.

I baked another batch of the German chocolate cookies for the kids on Sunday.  I need a half batch more for the kids and will bake them tomorrow and save the other half for New Year's Eve.

I will be finishing a weave-it baby blanket this evening.  Will post a picture tomorrow.
No ice cream for me tonight - I'm going with a piece of pumpkin bread this time.

Hope your day has been a happy one.

Deb and Adam - I like to do jigsaw puzzles on line as well and do them at
Jigidi Puzzles.   Lots of puzzles to do there and you can make puzzles out of your own pictures.  That's what I like to do.

FurryGnome - Yes, they do sometimes let water out of the reservoirs.


  1. Great bowling scores! I will have to check out that puzzle website. Thanks for the tip. Enjoy your pumpkin bread!

  2. Oh you did get your new bowling shoes. Excellent and they do seem to have helped with those wonderful scores. The tide has turned and now it is I who has snow and you who has green grass.

  3. Yay for good bowling scores! New shoes helped!:)

  4. Cute bowling shoes! Way to go, K!

  6. Great bowling! My highest ever was in the 190s - a total fluke! That was many years ago. Have a great day.

  7. I haven't bowled for probably 30 years. My scores would be terrible.

  8. Your new shoes are very lucky! Nice to see you are still green and no snow. Looking forward to seeing your baby blanket.

  9. Your bowling scares are quite impressive! I also love that photo in your header...gorgeous! I am ready for snow...I've has enough of this RAIN! Happy New Year!

  10. Happy New Year!!!!!! Hope you and your loved ones have a blessed 2016....

    I posted my "Year in Review" blog today. Had fun working on that one.

    Glad your new bowling shoes brought you good luck.

  11. I love having bowling shoes. No extra fee, and you don't have to wear some smelly ugly shoes anymore

  12. No luck. Probably having stable feet improve your technique. Those scores are all higher than anything I've ever bowled. Well done!
