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.

Just another day :-)

Sunrise 7:29
Sunset 6:14
A very warm morning for my walk today around the lake.  I didn't see the sunrise because it was cloudy.  Now that it is so dark when I start out, I don't really get to take any pictures for most of my walk.  I am looking forward to the time change so it will be lighter in the morning but I don't like that it will be getting darker at night.  I didn't see many people out at first, but once it got light there were more.  Maybe it's just too dark and I don't see them. :-)  The geese were back at the lake again.  I saw the heron standing in the low water.  He was just standing there with his head tucked in so I guess he was still sleeping.  Work continues at the lake on the rebuilding of the pier and boat ramp.  I took a couple of pictures.
Actually it was a pretty quiet morning and I really enjoyed my 6.5 mile walk.

Hard to believe another week has gone by and it was time for my Tuesday knitting group again.  Nice to see all my knitting friends.  It's NEVER boring there!! :-) I had to stop for gas first so I got there a little after 10.  From there it was to the library to drop off a couple of movies and pick up the new James Patterson book, The Postcard Killers which I had on hold. 

I got home a little after 1:30 had some lunch and now here I am on the computer.  I'll be here for a little while yet, then make baked ziti for supper. 

My Mom's surgery went well yesterday though she spent a long day at the hospital and is really glad it is over with now.  She said it was very painful but she had pain medicine and she slept last night from 8:00 until 5:00 this morning!!  Now she just had to mend and not do anything which will be hard for her since it's her right wrist.  I'm not sure how long it will be before she is back to normal.  She thanks everyone for all your prayers as she said she just couldn't have coped without them! :-)

A happy Tuesday to you!
Happyone :-)

  1. Yes, it was another great day at knitting. I always enjoy this group. This week was packed with so much stuff that I had a cancel a few things. But my Tuesday group is never one of the things I cancel.

  2. We shall just keep praying for her wrist to heal in record time. Sounds as if she had a wonderful night's sleep. Maybe I need one of her meds. Ha!

    Oh yes, I forgot how the time change affects your morning walks and it's a little later again this year, but coming soon.

    We had homemade chicken pot pie. I would far prefer your baked ziti. Hmmmm...

  3. Your mom will remain in my prayers as she goes through the healing process.
    I just got back from an after dinner walk in the dark. It is quite warm and humid here.
    Hope you enjoyed your baked ziti. That does sound good.
