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

Banana Peppers

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿

It was 54 degrees this morning when I started walking and a light rainy mist so I wore my rain pants and slicker.  After a couple of miles, the rain had stopped, the clouds were gone and the sun came out.  I was getting warm in my rain gear so I went back home and changed into my regular walking clothes.

The picture is of white lilacs.  I like the pink ones better but these sure do smell just as good.  The lilacs in my yard bloom later than the rest of them around town. 

I walked all around town, up Barn Sale Rd a ways, the cemeteries and the ball park loop.  Saw another walker and two people walking dogs.

So nice to see and hear all the birds about in the morning.  They make me smile.

Walked 6.1 miles.
Coins I found along my walk for the month of April are:
1 dime
3 nickles
7 pennies
Total 32 cents - not great but better than none. : )

Six months sure go by fast.  I can't believe that tomorrow is time to go back to the dentist.  Seems like I was just there.  Since I always take some chocolate chippers along with me on my dentist visits, I baked yet another batch of them today.

Monday starts another week of cleaning and I got a good start on this weeks house cleaning.

In the afternoon I went outside and did some weeding, a never ending job.  Was out front weeding when Ken came driving up the driveway and that ended my weeding.  Nice to sit out on the porch for a while before we came in got cleaned up and headed out to Brenda's for half price pizza for supper.  Today we got a topping, banana peppers.
Sat by the window over looking the lake.
 It's been a good day.
A happy day to you.

Been taken for granted?

  3. Beautiful pocture of the mist rising from the pond.

  4. I need to get a new dentist. I didn't go last year though I meant to, but don't worry I have at least 7 more teeth left.

    I actually did lose one tooth and got it replaced with a bridge.

  5. mmm banana and peppers, not sure, but saying that it does look delicious! Just had another look and realized it's not actual bananas but small peppers, phew!!!!
    I love all lilacs, we do have a white Madame Lemoine and I love it because of it's fragrance.
    Your welcome to have your teeth cleaned by me any time if you bring me fresh baked cookies. Your Dentist must love seeing you!
