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

Saturday's Critters

Took this picture on Monday walking around the Farm Loop.
Horse on the left is Grace (don't know the other horses name)
 from Farmer Bill's farm.
Linking up the Eileen for her Saturday's Critters.

Got up late and didn't start walking until 8:00. 
A dreary morning with a light drizzle and pretty windy.
So warm for this time of year at 40 degrees!!!

Walked through town and around both cemeteries a couple of times.
Then back around town.

Didn't see anyone else out today and not very many cars either.
I was going to walk past my house and walk over by the industrial park
but I was starting to get a bit wet and I was hungry so I cut my walk
short and was back home after 
5 miles.
Found a dime.

I made some Pfeffernuesse Cookies this afternoon.
I don't really like the kind you get from the store but these
homemade ones are very good.
Just hanging around the house today.
Got some laundry done, read, and worked on the puzzle.

Making Kung Pao Chicken for supper tonight.
Haven't made it in a long time and looking forward to making
and eating it.

Well tomorrow is Christmas and a very happy and
Merry Christmas to you all.

"Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend,  your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect."

  1. Hi Karen - we are having a low-key Christmas Eve too. It is rainy and windy here today, but I managed to get my walk in early. We will got get a bucket of KFC for dinner tonight - a Jones Family tradition that we have had for many years and always look forward too. Kung Pao Chicken sounds good too! Enjoy your Christmas Day and I will see you again soon!

  2. I like your photo of horses in the snow. Draft horses are special favorites of mine. I used to make those cookies too, home made they are delicious. Merry Christmas. This is my first Christmas without my husband, quite a shock.

  3. Sending warm Blessings for Christmas your way.

  4. That's a lovely snowy photo of the ponies!

  7. Hi Karen, wonderful photo of the horses. It was pouring rain when we got up so we put off our walk until just before lunch. We are warm here too. Your Pfeffernuesse look perfect! I imagine they are delicious. I made Vegetarian Sloppy Joes for supper. It was yummy! Hope your supper was good too.
    Merry Christmas Karen to you and Ken. Enjoy the day!

  8. Have a peaceful Christmas Karen. It's a pretty quiet Christmas Eve here with our grandchildren out west now!
