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

My new bowling record

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
30 degrees this sunny morning and no wind.  : )  What a difference from yesterday!!  Enjoyed walking around the Farm Loop, my favorite route.
Lots of geese flying around here this morning and going off in all directions.  I also saw 4 Killdeer.  Their call is very distinctive and I heard them first before I saw them.  They were too quick for me to get a picture.

Coming back into town I made a quick loop through the industrial park and then walked up the hill behind my house before going back home.

Walked 6 miles.
Added up the coins I found in February.  Not too bad considering I walked inside some days and a lot of days I walked in the snow.
1 dime, 2 nickles and 8 pennies for a grand total of 28 cents.

These Tuesdays sure seem to roll around fast and once again it was bowling day.  Well, it was quite a good bowling day for me.  I topped my last high score with a 191 today!!  My other two games were 144 and 138. 

I'm home on my own this evening.  Our pastor has been in New Zealand for a revival the last two weeks and comes home today.  Ken is on the way to Dulles Airport in Va to pick him up which is about 3 hours away.  Looks like I'll be getting my own ice cream later.

I started listening to an audio book, Lethal by Sandra Brown.  I've finished the first disc of which there are 11 while knitting.

That's it for today.
Hope you had a good one and you smiled often.
