Books I've Read In 2018

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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Funny Puzzle

 Another morning not good for a town walk so back down in the basement.
I like to think of all the nice days that will be coming up when I can get back to my town walk.  I just have to have patience.

We finished another puzzle.  This was a funny and fun one to do.

Some closer looks

Got started on this weeks housework.
The sheets got washed.  Can't hang them outside but I have drying
racks that I set up over a couple of heating vents and they dry
pretty quickly.

Making more weave-it squares for the baby blanket for February.
Got a good start on them.
Still reading the second book in the Games of Thrones.
They are all around 800 pages with smallish print so it takes a while.

For supper I made some Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup.
Tastes especially good on a cold winters day. 

That's all for today.
A happy Monday to you.
Thanks for stopping by.

A home is a place where a pot of fresh soup simmers gently on the hob,
filling the kitchen with soft aromas and filling your heart
and later your tummy with joy.

That puzzle certainly looks like a lot of fun to do!!
Hopefully tomorrow you can walk outside again.

...that one is busy, is it easier or harder to put together?

Deb said...

That does look like a fun puzzle. That soup would be good for a cold winter day. I always enjoy reading about your day. See you again soon.

Debi said...

That puzzle does look like fun! Hope you can get outside at least a couple of times this week. We're having very cold weather all week so we won't be wandering outside.

Our temp reached 70 degrees today. You can imagine how much we enjoyed that! On Monday the sheets get washed no matter! That’s the way it is here too.

That does look like a fun puzzle! We just started one this afternoon. We've had some more snow and it's just too cold for Dear to work in his very cold shop. These days really call out for soup!

Hope you will be back to outside walking soon. That puzzle is a hoot!
I'm off to check out your soup recipe.

That was a funny puzzle.

Another day in the basement. Soon the weather will change and you'll get out again.

Do you folks own a dryer? You are very good about not using one.

A complicated puzzle. What patience you have to finish it.

God bless.

Your day sounds perfect. The puzzle, clean sheets and the soup .. It gives me that nesty home feeling. We got a little snow and some freezing rain here last night also. Luckily, Paul said that the roads weren't to bad for his ride home from work this morning.

Have a great day. Enjoy your book.
