Are you a positive or negative thinker?

Where are we today ?
Plattsville Ontario
           Kinda cool here now only got to 15c (59) today and hardly any sun at all. Forecast said 60% chance of sunshine, think they goofed up. So I ran a few errands, for ma,  replied to emails etc... and postings for ma's stuff, no bites yet. This afternoon we even found a movie on Tv, and really enjoyed that. We do not watch much TV at all and today was perfect for it. Only one movie for me then I need to get outside, so I bundled up and hopped on the mower to cut some more grass for about an hour or so, until it really got too cold for me. 
           Did see this wonderful saying on facebook today and that is my theory on life. Thought I would share it with you. And yep you should know am a positive thinker.
this says it all
       Got these two wonderful chairs below from Ma. She made them quite a few years ago and are exactly the chairs we have been searching for. Love this style and are now obsolete, we will treasure these for many years to come. Thanks Ma!!!
love these chairs!
          Got some grass mowed, and by then it was getting close to 4 o'clock. Glad we have our Mr. Heater really takes the chill off. A cool day as well as overcast and damp. The 60% sunshine ended up about 5 %, but still had fun anyway, it could be much colder at least none of that white fluffy stuff.
        We are going to have an earlier supper tonight and want to cook our spaghetti squash and heat up some spaghetti sauce with ground turkey and lotsa veggies that I had made up previously and frozen.
        This is a huge squash and cooked up the whole thing in the microwave. After removing the seeds face down on a plate took 15 minutes to be tender. Scooped out 1/2 onto two plates, topped, with a few fresh mushrooms, spaghetti sauce, parmesan cheese, grape tomatoes, olives and of course a liberal application of my hot sauces and spices for me. Some brown rice crackers and really hit the spot.
very tasty
       Early supper done then off to the arena in town. Have two grandsons doing hockey tryouts tonight so got to see some of their fancy foot work for a few hours. Tis that time of year again in Canada. We will see as much as we can when we are in the area.
        Thanks again for your visit with us. Hope you keeping warm too.
        P.S. I even put some long pants on today for a while.

  4. It's chilly around here a bit in the morning. We turn on a little electric heater to take the bite off but that's about it for now. Of course, we all know fall is just around the corner.

  5. Hard to believe the cold snap that has hit the North. This time last year on our RV trip, we had past areas that are now getting snow and we were in West Yellowstone where it was very pleasant, but it's 16F this morning.

    1. I think we will still get a warm spell yet, before things get too cold.

    1. Yes I did use the microwave about the only thing that I use it for. The quickest and easiest way to cook a spaghetti squash.

  7. I really consider myself a positive person but I am also such a worrier - I don't think that makes me negative. Even with all the worrying life is fantastic. I got up, turned the heat on, and put on long pants. Going to be the same today. Like you said, at least it isn't white.

    1. Life is fantastic I agree with you too.
      Worry is just something some people do more that others.

  10. Wow, lots to talk about today, George! I love it! :) Positive.....that's me too. All the way. There is no point in living our life in the negative and I find myself shutting down real quick when someone comes at me with it. Life is way too short! Love the chairs, my mom has a pair as well, they last forever! Spaghetti squash, I love that too and appreciate the tip of 'how to'. Nice and quick. Still can't talk Bill into it though as a replacement to the noodles. :( Not only long pants today for me (2nd day in months!) but I had to pull out the socks. That one hurt! Enjoy your days G & S.

    We have not had to use any form to heat our domiciles out here on the west coast. Nice weather in the long term forecast keeps fall away. Yeah to that.
