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

Another Year

๐ŸŒพ     ๐ŸŒพ
54 degrees this morning and it was sunny. 
Walked one of my usual routes - behind my house, through town, up Barn Sale
a ways, down toward Happy Trails, and back to town.  Then around the cemeteries
and ball park loop and back home once again.

Rebeca was out walking.  Nice to see her again, it's been quite awhile
since she was out.  I see people come and go and come again.

Walked 6.2 miles

Today is the REAL Memorial Day, before they made holidays on Mondays
and it is also my birthday.  

Ken made cherry turnovers for our breakfast.

I did some more laundry - have to take advantage of these 
nice sunny days.

Did a bit more weeding out front and planted a couple more plants.
Ken took me out to lunch and we went to Brenda's for pizza and a salad.
Nice to have a GOOD pizza again after the pizza we had last week at the other place.

Had a nice chat on the phone with my friend Bernice.
We rarely get to see each other but not a day goes by that I don't think of her.

It's been a nice but quiet day and I am thankful for all my many blessings.

Life is Good
Hope your day was sunny and bright.

"The first fact about the celebration of birthdays
is that it is a good way of affirming defiantly, and even flamboyantly,
that it is a good thing to be alive."
~ G K Chesterton

wondering what happened."
