Chapter 5, Page 11, Book 12

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


What a week this has been.  It hardly seems possible at all that it is Friday already.

I had a lot to do and got very little of it done.  What I did do was good though, so I won't complain at all.

Monday was laundry and grass mowing

Tuesday I worked in the yard and shared some of the plants that I thinned out of my flowerbed with my daughter

Wednesday I washed the bedding in the spare room, cleaned out a little more in the basement and made some beans and rice for dinner

Thursday was shopping and errand day

And  here we are on Friday
.  I'm making potato salad to take to DSIL's birthday cookout tomorrow.

It was a busy and fast week.  Not an usual week at all, but a good one.

A million tomorrows shall all pass away
'Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.

I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
The weekend is just ahead.

I bet that potato salad will be delicious! Happy birthday to DSIL! It was a busy week for you, Ma! I bet it felt good to get some of the work done that needed to be done; I think our to do lists never completely get cleared, but always a good feeling to knock a few items off it!

have a great day; I love that quote of Groucho Marx! Good words to live every day by!
