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

A quiet day

A short post today - a pretty quiet do nothing kind of day.
It was another misty morning so I waited a little bit and walked at 8:00 - at least it was light out. I did my exercise tape before my walk. I was feeling a little down and then two people stopped at the cross walk to let me cross the street - both directions at the same time! :-) That doesn't happen very often. It was enough to put a smile on my face and brighten my mood. Funny how such a little thing can make a difference like that.

Stayed home and did a few things around the house. We lost power for a couple of hours in the afternoon. No idea why - no storms and no wind.

I spent quite a lot of time reading.

No ice cream or chocolate chip cookies for our snacks tonight. I made chocolate pudding.

Just a picture I took on my walk this morning. I saw the last of these geese getting out of the water and by the time I got my camera they all were out.Hope all is well in your part of the world and you had a Happy Day!


  1. We had heavy fog this morning. I went outside to breathe it in and feel it on my skin. Fog always brings memories of living in the mountains - happy memories.

  2. At least we saw some sun today! Real busy for me -- marketing. Tomorrow I clean and on Thursday cook and host the book club.

  3. We all need a quiet day once in a while, but losing power for no apparent reason is a bummer!

  4. I think we should never underestimate the power of a small thing. Quite often they can make a difference in someone else's day as you have proven here.

  5. We have a nice sunny week but still cold and geese everywhere, it seems they are all over the world. lol.
    Have a great week.

  6. Wow! That's a lot of geese!

    Sometimes the weather determines our mood...fog always makes me feel droopy.

  7. At my place we have sun right now and the snow is melting. That is good because the roads are not icy anymore.
    I hope you feel happy today:)
    I think the photo is funny because it looks like all the geese are running away from you.
