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

This morning I left my old usual time of 6:30 and it was of course dark but it was 46 degrees with no wind and felt mild.  I don't think we are going to have winter this year.  I may regret saying that!! : )

I saw a couple of rabbits hopping around in one of the cemeteries and that was about it.

I walked the town route again but made it a bit longer by walking up the road behind my house.  This road runs parallel to my road.
My walk today was 6 miles.

Baked another batch of the German Chocolate Cookies first thing this morning and put supper in the crock pot (pork chops and potatoes) and will just fix a vegetable later.
Finished the jigsaw puzzle too.

This is the finished weave-it baby blanket.
Now I will turn my attention to finishing the last scarf for Krista.  She had been so patient waiting for it.

I walked to the library this afternoon to return a book.  On line it said I couldn't renew it but once I got to the library they told me I could.  : )  I didn't even look around for more to read because I now have 3 books I'm reading.

Hope you having a happy day.

A happy New Year!
Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
~ Edgar Guest


  1. That's a perfect poem for you/of you!
    We ARE having winter here. It's cold!

  2. I'm so glad Trisha is feeling better.
    Send some of your warm weather up our way! Maybe it will melt the ice and snow.
    Your baby blanket is beautiful.
    Enjoy your evening.

  3. I love that jigsaw puzzle! It has been years since I had one to work. The blanket is really nice. You've had such a productive day! Are the German chocolate cookies made with a cake mix?

  4. The baby blanket is lovely! My late husband loved to do jig saw puzzles but I just never had the patience for them. The one you completed is so pretty. Have a Happy New Year.

  5. Hello, I am so glad your friend Trish is doing better. Wonderful photos. Enjoy your last day of December. I wish you and yours all the best in 2016, a Happy, Healthy New Year!

  6. Such a nice note from your friend :)

    Your views are lovely, and it sounds like you are getting in some great walks.
    The snow has been falling and falling here. No doubt about it... we have winter in these parts!

    Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!!

  7. Happy New Year to you and Ken. In the new year I will be looking forward to more of your excellent photography.

  8. blessings and happy new year.
    Just browsing through blogspotville and thought I’d stop in to wish you a happy new year.
    May you have more triumphs than trials
    More joy than sorrow
    More support than judgement
    More Inspiration than discouragement
    More resources and access than obstacles
    and may you know through it all
    That you are blessed and a blessing (by D.S.B.S.Rhapsody)


  9. Busy, busy, busy. You are always on the move and making things - which I really enjoy seeing.
    Happy New Year!

  10. What a sweet comment, I'm glad to hear Trish is doing well. German Chocolate Cookies sound yummy! Pretty puzzle. Our granddaughters are doing a lot of puzzles lately. We added another puzzle to their family at Christmas--1000 pieces. That should keep them busy for at least a little while. It's been rather mild here, too. Not complaining! Happy New Year!

  11. Very happy to hear that your friend is doing well and see God at work. That is always a thrill. He is a great big wonderful God.


Hello my friend.
