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

Cookie Lady goes to the dentist

๐ŸŒพ     ๐ŸŒพ
A cloudy morning for walking today, 57 degrees and windy.
Started walking on the streets behind my house.
Then over to and around the ball park loop, the cemeteries,
around town, and then back for another loop around the ball park and home.

Work is slow going on the old bakery but there is some progress.
More new windows and those tree columns are new.
Inside the walls are getting framed out.
I have heard rumors that the new business going in there is to be a deli.
Saw some more rabbits, sure are lots of them around and I guess that
means there will be even more around.
Pretty quiet around town.
Walked 6.2 miles
๐ŸŒพ     ๐ŸŒพ
Ken went out and got gas in my car for me, which he always does.
He is being nice when he does it,
but I think he really just likes to drive my car. ๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿ˜Š
Walked over to the dentist for my appointment at 11:00 and brought the usual
chocolate chip cookies for the staff.
They call me the 'Cookie Lady'.
I am very good about brushing my teeth, flossing and also using a water pic,
but on dentist days I brush, floss, water pic, and then brush again.
I am HAPPY to say that my teeth cleaning was a breeze.
No cavities and healthy gums.
I'm set for another 6 months. ๐Ÿ˜€

Ken was up at HT in the morning and came home lunch time.
Didn't go back up because the afternoon turned into a drizzly misty one
so we stayed home inside getting some things done around the house.

 Hope your day is sunny and bright.

Melanie - No, a gazebo is NOT our next project.  It's a much bigger project.  Not quite ready to reveal what it is yet. ๐Ÿ˜Š


  1. Good for you! I always dread dentist visits so I'm glad all went well!

  2. ...your first photo is great...buttercups, dame's rocket and skunk cabbage?

  3. We had rain today...never seen the sun one single time.

    Love that quote!

  4. As a 'Cookie Lady', you'd be welcome to drop by here! I got a good dental report last week too, much to my surprise!

  5. The 'cookie lady' must be a very welcome sight at the dentist office. :)

  6. The town where my work is located has a lot of new buildings being done to it. Like a health center, and restaurants. Saw a new pizza one pop up there the other day

  7. I love the flowers in that first picture! We have sure had a week of getting nothing done...rain and thunderstorms the last two days. Glad your dentist appoint was all good.

  8. I'm sure the staff at your dentist is always happy to see you walk through their doors! :) Have a wonderful day!

  9. Hi Karen, love your title today! Glad everything went well at the dentist.
    You must have sent your rain up here because it is pouring rain as I type this!
    Have a good day!

  10. Hello, I am sure they love the cookies you bring to the dentist office. So glad your visit went well. We took a walk in the morning, first time I saw the sun shining. It is back to rain again this morning. Enjoy your Thursday!

  11. I smiled at your title. After reading your blog for so many years, when you mention a dentist appt. I immediately envision you blessing them with your yummy cookies.
    It will be interesting to follow along with you and see what the new fate for the bakery will be. A deli might be nice.

  12. So glad you had a good report at the dentist! I guess we both share the title of "cookie lady", as I love to bake and share cookies!
    looking forward to finding out what the remodeled building will be, a deli sounds nice to me.

  13. That will be fun to see what goes in the old bakery building.
    Wishing the new owners luck :)

    Glad you had a good checkup at the dentist, and I'm sure that your cookies where very well received.

    Have a great weekend.


  14. Glad to hear the dentist visit went well ...

    All the best Jan
