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

 Forgot to post this picture from yesterday.
Ken taking a picture of me taking a picture.
He's a sly one. 😃

This morning was baking time.
I baked 60 brownies for the kids at Sunday School.
Put numbers and letters on them because it was a celebration
for going back to school.

David came over and he and Ken did a little work on his Jeep.
Liz came over too and we had another nice visit.

Felt more like fall today.
Lots of blue sky, big fluffy clouds and only in the 60's.

Friday! and you know what that means!!
Pizza Day!
As usual I made the dough and Ken the pizza.

Thinking about going to town tomorrow morning and starting back
to walking.  I'll just go a couple of miles to start out.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
A happy Friday to you.🙂

What a cute idea for the brownies.

Mari said...

The brownies are cute! So is the picture of you taking a picture. :) I thought that was at your church but it says a radio station? Does your church do radio?
Glad you are close to getting out walking again.

Deb said...

Hi Karen. I love the brownies you made for the kids at church. That is so nice of you and makes going to church a positive thing for the children. I am glad that your ankle has healed up enough that you will start walking again. Glad you and Liz had another nice visit. Sounds like you and her have a good relationship. I hope you have a good weekend. See you again tomorrow. :-)

Great idea with the brownies! No walking for me until my knee is better...I long for my walks in the nature again. Pizza is nice :)
Love from Titti

The brownies are perfect for school! Don't walk too far that you would not be able to get back if need be!

I'll bet the people in town will be happy to see you in the morning. The kids will love those oh-so-delicious looking brownies. Ken got a great picture of you.

Great job on the Brownies. I'm sure the children will love them. Are there 60 children in your Sunday School? For a small town that's a lot of kids.

The bulls will welcome you back...they do like routine. Brownies...yum!! A picture of a picture-taker. Cute idea

Ann said...

I'm now hungry for pizza and brownies.
Cute idea on the brownies for back to school.

Take it easy on starting your walking - take care to not over-do it. Enjoy your Friday Night Pizza- sounds great!

Kerri Farley said...

Glad your ankle is getting better! The brownies look yummy!

Those are cute brownies. It was cooler here yesterday, in the 70s. Perhaps that 60s weather is headed our way, but I really enjoyed the 70s day spent at Laurel's home on the Carrabassett (for the last time). It was a glorious day.

What a fun treat those brownies will be for the Sunday School kids. Hard to believe it's Back to School time already! Glad your ankle is getting stronger and stronger!

Does look like Fall...

But it's a tease....

I'm sure hot weather will return.

Be careful!

Hi Karen, I just discovered that while I wasn’t paying attention you fell down on August 3rd. Sure sorry to hear about that incident and hurting your ankle. Happy to hear that your recovery is going well and you are back to some short walks. You sure did a fine job of keeping your blog going even while not able to walk. I really enjoy the way you keep track of your daily activities. Hope you are back to 100% soon. Take good care! John
