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.

Fog, muffins and golf clubs

This morning I went for a walk in the fog.  This is the part of the path when I first get to the lake.  If you click to enlarge the photo you can barely see three people up ahead.  They look more like the shadow of a ghost.  Maybe if you can't see them and I can its because I know they are there.
 A very warm morning and because of the fog I was a bit damp.  Later when the sun came up and burned away the fog, it really warmed up and I was a lot damp from sweat!!  I saw two herons (one flying and one standing in the water), two chipmunks, and so many squirrels that I couldn't even guess how many!!!  Surprisingly there were quite a few people out in spite of the fog.  I ended up walking 7 miles.  I'm trying to keep my average steps up for the competition. :-)

This morning I did a couple of loads of laundry and hung them outside, got a loaf of bread started in the bread machine, and baked some chocolate chip muffins.  Muffins were from a mix so only took a few minutes to make.  The mix is a Martha White and the only thing I had to add to the mix was 1/2 cup of milk.  I like that the mix only makes six muffins.  Here they sit on a Fiestaware plate.
Since yesterday was a pretty busy day I didn't get to read any blogs.  Its amazing how far behind I can get in just a day or so.  While doing things around the house, every so often I would read a blog or two.  I'm just about caught up now.

I said yesterday that I would post pictures of our new Golf clubs and here they are.  I love the pink color of mine!! :-)  I'm sure having pink clubs will help my golf game!!

Charles Dickens is my favorite author.  I love all the characters he writes about.  They all come alive to me as I read his books.  One book of his I haven't read is Hard Times and in a little while I'm going to start reading it. :-)

I wish for you all a Happy Friday.
Happyone :-)
Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.

  2. I like the idea of walking in fog - very dreamy! You are really keeping up the distance.

  3. Well, it is October and pink is the breast health color! I'm sure the pink will indeed help your game. :)
