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.

Walking Weather

It was cooler this morning and quite pleasant for walking.  I walked on paths through the woods and down neighborhood streets.  I saw a few people walking on the sidewalks, one person walking down the middle of the road
and no one at all on the paths in the woods.  So nice and quiet to listen to the birds and to hear the water making its way down the stream and over the rocks.
Another quiet uneventful walk but a good one all the same.
I walked passed the liquor store too and found a penny. 

Funny stickhorsecowgirlV that you asked about what my favorite walking weather was because as I was walking this morning I was thinking that I would blog about that today!!
My ideal walking weather is when the temperature is in the high 40's or low 50's and the sun is shining.  I would be wearing long pants, a tee-shirt and a sweatshirt with pockets.  One for my camera and one for my phone.  I like when the air is brisk and has that certain smell when things feel fresh and cool.  Early spring or fall days are best.  That's my favorite weather, but given the choice of winter weather (cold but no ice) or summer, I would pick winter. Though I am not a fan of winter and prefer the warm weather of summer during the rest of the day, I do like walking when it's cold.  In fact even on those days when the weather is in the teens,  while I'm walking is the only time of the day that I'm warm!!  : )  The rest of the day inside I'm usually cold!
I like to walk in the rain once in a while because I like to hear the rain and it just feels great to be out walking then too.
Whatever the weather I'm just glad to be out there walking.
Today I walked 6.2 miles.
*************************************************
Ken took a vacation day today because he has days to use or lose.  He sat outside on the deck and read while I did a few things around the house.  Then we went out to do a few errands.  I should have worn my pedometer because we sure did a lot of walking!  I'm sure we walked another three miles! : )

Supper tonight is going to be at Red Robin where I'm going to have fish and chips.  That's my favorite place for that.  I also like sitting in the little booths for two with Kenny. : )
I'm skipping a snack tonight.  Just having a nice big glass of Crystal Pink Lemonade with ice. 

Hope your Wednesday was a good one.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )

  1. I'm with you, I like the cooler days, a little warmer than what you like. I prefer the 60s-70s. Unlike you, I won't be walking outside in the cold. I will make an effort to walk the mall or get some sort of exercise. That's been my new journey...keep moving! Hope your date with Kenny and dinner were both awesome!

  3. Catching up with you and glad to see you're still walking even though you like cool weather for walking better. It's lovely in Breck right now (highs of 70 with lows into 40's). However, Denver is hot (but dry). I'm in the city over the 4th because my 88 year old father in law is visiting. Have a great 4th weekend!
