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

Rain and sun

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿

A morning for wearing my rain slicker and rain pants.  It wasn't raining hard, just a misty light rain but it lasted for my whole walk.  It was warm at 54 degrees and no wind to speak of.  Can't complain of the rain because the last few days the weather has been perfect.  Besides it is nice to walk in the rain every so often.  : )

A lot of times when I walk around town I just have a random walk but today I walked one of the routes that I've mapped out.

No one else out and about walking or running on this early Friday morning.
Lots and lots of worms around on the sidewalks and roads which I see often when it rains.  I looked up the reason why they do this. I always thought it was because when the ground got so wet they would drown. But that is NOT the reason.  If you care to read about it click HERE.

Walked 6.2 miles.

While listening to an audio book I finished the latest weave-it Baby Blanket for the church baby blanket ministry this afternoon. 
I'm now working on finishing a knitted baby blanket that I started.

Mid morning the rain moved off and we had another sunny day.  Not as warm as it has been but nice, and I enjoyed being out in the yard for a while.

I haven't had any ice cream all week and look forward to having a bowl of it later tonight!! 

That's it for today. 

A happy day to you.

My Three Happy Times
  1. Another baby blanket gets done
  2. Ken cooked supper
  3. Ice cream tonight


  1. Hi Karen - that baby blanket reminds me of the one you made for my grand daughter a few years ago. I think I missed the post where you explained the baby blanket ministry. Where are the blankets going? I think that is a marvelous way to help someone in need. We sure could use some rain out here, so please send some our way. ;-) Have a good evening.

  2. Rain is refreshing,especially in spring.Have a good weekend.

  3. I got some strawberry shortcake bars and my wife didn't notice I had gotten them while we were at the dollar tree. She then demanded the right to the last one left. I should have gotten more

  4. I don't mind the rain but I do dislike wet knees!
    Your baby blanket is delightful, what do you do with them at the church?
    Have a lovely weekend :)

  5. Hello, I do not mind some rain after having some nice weather days. The blanket is pretty. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  6. We had a good bit of rain here too. Looks like Spring has sprung everywhere! Love your blanket.

  7. No ice cream all week? I'll bet it tasted especially good last night.
    I am curious about those worms but I'll come back and read about it as I am currently eating breakfast.

  8. Your weave-it baby blanket is so pretty, Karen. I'm looking forward to seeing the one you are knitting, too. Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Bit worried that barn might topple over in the next wind storm.
