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

Pizza Place

Some of Farmer Marvin's cows.
The red/brown ones I think are new additions, first time I've seen them.
Quite a few little ones around too.
44 degrees this morning and a little rain around. Wore my rain pants
and slicker.  Needed them for the first half of my walk but then it
cleared up.  By lunch time the sun was shining.
Walked my usual around town route, down toward Happy Trails,
around the cemeteries and the ball park loop.

Saw Lisa out running. We were going in opposite directions down the main road.

Found a penny.
Walked 6 miles
 Walked pretty much the same route yesterday
in a mix of sun and clouds.

All of yesterday was spent at church working on our Fingerprint Ministry.
About 20 of us worked and we got 3,043 of Romans books put together.
The exact same amount of books as we did in January.
We thought that was amazing to have the exact same amount.

Ken left after lunch to do some outside work up at the new house.
Got a text from him saying that when he passed
the pizza place there was an OPEN sign in front.
I was surprised and said I would check it out.
 So as I walked to the library I passed by and sure enough it
was open and I went inside.
I had been looking in the window on the wrong side of the  building
and that's why it looked like they had a lot of work to do yet.
The pizza smelled good and said I'd be back for supper.

At the library I returned my book and checked out the
one on hold and got another one too.

When Ken got home we went to the new pizza place.
The pizza was pretty good but since it was just the first day
it was a bit chaotic.  Not much in the way of atmosphere either.
Didn't even have cups for the soda and had to drink it out of the can.
We will wait a few weeks and then go back and see how it is then.
So far it is only good I think for take out.

I downloaded a new operating system for my Apple and as it usually
goes the 'new and improved' is just a different way
and you have to learn to do everything over.
I've been playing around with it and things seem to be fine.

That's it for today.
 Life is Good
Count your blessings

6 miles deserves a pizza ~ a whole pizza. : ) The first photo looks like a picture that I've been eyeing up at Kirkland's. Beautiful.
Here I am complaining about the cold and I forget how much cooler it is in Western Md. You are a rock star for trekking in this weather.

Enjoy your weekend.

...that first image is wonderful.

Always something new to learn, isn't there? Some times I'm not so sure that the "new and improved" is better. I hope you will stop by my blog post from today. That's all I am saying. :-)

I need to walk more so those thoughts can come more clearly. Good idea to wait a couple weeks to see how the new pizza joint will fare...

Looks like the flowers are doing well with a little rain now and then.

You did a lot of walking. Unfortunately my walking the past few days has been very slow and painful (joints). But I was happy to get out and enjoy the beautiful days. It is very clouded over right now. The weekend will bring some rain but supposed to be sunny again come Monday. I hope you enjoyed your pizza. I'm sure things will get more organized over time. Enjoy your weekend.

Lovely to see some of Farmer Marvin's cows in your first photograph.
I liked the flowers too!

Hope the new pizza place settles down and when you go back it will not be as chaotic.

All the best Jan

Hello Karen, Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Yes, I walk every day but not nearly as far as you do.
I've been looking at some of your past posts and I see you're building a lovely new home. How exciting! I'll be back to check on the progress.
