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

Box Turtle

Another hot morning walk but it was cloudy out so it didn't seem so bad though the humidity kicked in later during the day. Today I walked around the lake. I didn't see very many of the usual people I see but still plenty of people about. I asked Barb about the dog Angel that was missing and I'm sorry to say she has never been found.
Walking along the path by the water to the lake a deer jumped out in front of me across the path which startled me. I stopped to take a picture of this box turtle which I think is laying eggs.
Last night we finished watching the last of season 3 of Mad Men. Season 4 is due to air next month I think so it will probably be quite a while until we get to see it.
Last nights ice cream flavor for me was chocolate chip and Ken's was coffee (a flavor that I DON'T like).

After breakfast I gathered up my knitting and went to the Tuesday Knit group. We gathered around 2 tables and just added chairs as more people showed up. There were about 15 people there. I worked on a baby blanket. Every time I leave and walk back to my car there is another Corvette that always parks next to me. It's a C6 and dark red. I always mean to ask if it's one of the other knitters car but only think about it when I see the car parked next to mine.

I'm home this afternoon just doing a few things around the house.
Hope you all are enjoying your Tuesday.
Happyone :-)
I really like this quote!!
How often in life we complete a task
that was beyond the capability
of the person we were when we started it.

  1. Yes, the humidity certainly DID kick in! I've been working outside -- not a good day to do this. So neat you got to see another turtle. I just love seeing them.

  2. Are you quite certain that you don't like coffee ice cream? LOL! (It's actually one of our favorites around here, but I promise never to serve you any.)

    Do you suppose you'll be there when the turtlings (well, what do they call baby turtles?) hatch out? That would be a lot of fun to see.

  3. I would love icecream... let it be any flavour... YUM YUM...

  4. What an interesting photo of the turtle - I wonder if it was laying eggs? Could you find the spot again? Every time I read about you having ice cream, I think maybe I need some, too!

  5. Great photo of the turtle and so interesting too. I have never seen a turtle laying eggs. Sorry to hear that Angel was not found.

  6. I was glad to be inside working yesterday. So hot. Did it storm by you last night? It was amazing and we got some great pics. I'll be looking to see if you post any.

    Happy Tuesday.
