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

Walked the Town Route this morning with a stop at the library to drop
off a book. 
Temperature was 44 degrees and it was cloudy.
Not much happening around town, a quiet walk and didn't see
anyone else.
Always happy when I'm able to take a morning walk.

Did a couple of things around the house and then we left at 11:15
to meet at Uno's for lunch with the Super Seniors from church.
There were 15 of us and we enjoyed our time together as always.

From there we went to Walmart to do our food shopping.

Before church this evening we stopped off at the funeral home.
A friends Mom died.  She had been sick for a while and though it is
sad she died, we know she is now at home in heaven.

Tomorrow is Fingerprints and after church this evening some of us
stayed after and got things set up for tomorrow and then worked
for about an hour.

The pink and white checked baby blanket is finished.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
A happy day to you.

    The blanket is perfect! I'm fixing to make a baby blanket but haven't figured out a stitch I want to use Thinking the moss stitch this time. I made some wash clothes using the moss stitch and loved how it worked up fast.
