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

Thursday's Morning Walk
I took an extra long walk this morning to get some more steps in for the step competition and may have gotten a bit carried away. I walked 8 miles which for me is 16,394 steps! I don't think I'll have much trouble making it to 20,000 again today. I walked around the lake and part way around it again and then just took a long way back home. This picture today is taken as I come to the end of the path that runs along the stream and I go left and walk down the path by the park sign. The lake is just down there a bit. The weather started out cool and calm but quickly warmed up once the sun came out and by the time I got home I was quite warm and very thirsty! I was out there just over 2 hours. I stopped to have a little chat with two of my walker friends and to take a bunch of pictures. I saw a few gold finches, rabbits, geese, and Cardinals. No deer today.
I still have to eat breakfast and then I'll get busy with my day.
I'll be back later.
Have a happy Thursday.
