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

Coloring and Fingerprints

๐ŸŒฑ     ๐ŸŒฑ
47 degrees and cloudy when I headed out this morning on my walk.
Walked all over town on no particular route.

Rebeca was out walking with her cute little white dog.
The state trooper was at the edge of town giving speeders tickets.

It is slow going with the building at the car dealers but this is the progress so far.
Passed by these cute garden ornaments in a yard that made me smile.
It stayed cloudy for all of my walk but at least I didn't get rained on.
Walked 6.2 miles
๐ŸŒพ     ๐ŸŒพ
Ken went up to Happy Trails right after breakfast and I stayed home
to get some house cleaning done.

Posting a little early today.
Having an early supper today because in a little while I'm leaving
to walk over to the library for the first day of the coloring group I signed up for. 
This should be fun and I am looking forward to going and seeing who else will show up. They supply everything and we don'thave to bring a thing. 
It meets 5-6:30 but I have to leave a few minutes
early because Ken will be picking me up so we can go to church.

After the service some of us will be staying to get started with Fingerprints.
The scriptures we picked up yesterday are again in Spanish but have a 
different cover and these will be going to Panama and have special covers.

Tonight starts a Fingerprint Marathon where we hope to get all 20,000
Romans books assembled cut and packed in boxes.
 Probably will just be there an hour or so tonight and then tomorrow and
Friday will be working the whole day from 9:00 
in the morning till 9 in the evening.  People can come and go as they have time.  

Ken has made a chart where we will be able to keep track of our
progress.  Not that good of a picture but you can see the boxes we will color in
as we get them done.  Maybe I'll get the job of coloring in the boxes. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Each box to color in represents a box of 420 completed Romans books in it and ready to be sent to Panama. 
 I'll have to get up early the next couple of days to get my walk in before we leave
and don't know if I'll have time to post but I'll give it a try.
 Life is Good
A happy day to you.

    You and Ken will be very deserving of that ice cream after all of your work on the book assembly at church. It seems that you all have a very organized system in place.
