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 day of pictures

Another gorgeous morning for a walk around the lake.

I took many pictures on my walk today. There was another person taking lots of pictures too and we stopped and talked for a bit. (no he doesn't have a blog but maybe someday)

Can you spot the deer in the middle of this picture?
They are standing right in the lake hiding behind the tall grass.
I zoomed in and took this one.
Ironing was on my agenda for today. While ironing I listened to George Guidall read me The Cat Who Could Read Backwards. I was ironing by the window and watched the cement trucks pour the footings for the row of townhouses in the front of us. We will be facing the side of the row.
I took these pictures out of my bedroom window.
Made spinach bean soup early in the afternoon for tomorrow for supper. It always tastes better the next day. We went out to Five Guys this evening.

Such a pretty sunny warm day and I sat out on the deck and read for a while. Came in for a bit and then went back out on the deck again to knit.

An update on the geese who made her nest in the parking lot where Ken works.
Mama is still sitting on the eggs and
papa is still protecting them.
This picture isn't very good
but I wanted to show you where the nest is situated.
You can see the cones they put out to keep cars away.
As we drove past to take the picture papa geese chased us.

We watched a couple episodes of Seinfeld and had a piece of yesterdays cheese cake for our snack. As usual I knitted while watching TV. BTW I really like knitting with the cotton yarn.

I hope you had a day filled with sunshine.
Happyone :-)


  1. The deer are really hard to see in that lake photo.

    Funny that the goose would make her nest in a parking lot. But I'm glad that people are trying to protect them. Poor papa goose...he must get tired of chasing those pesky cars.

  2. Those geese are a very interesting pair. LOL!

    Nope, never would've found the deer without the zoomed in pic and then still couldn't find them.

    What a nice way to kill two birds with one stone...an audio book and ironing. Great idea!

  3. That's nice they put out the cones, but it's probably more to protect the people walking by than the geese. We have millions of them here in central Indiana. They sometimes nest in the most inconvenient places! A few years ago a pair nested near the entrance door to my husband's work and would chase and nip at the employees as they entered the building. Might I also add, they leave quite a mess wherever they are (droppings), which are hazardous if you're not paying attention!

    Sorry to see that you're going to lose part of your view to a row of townhouses.

    The deer were doing a great job of concealing themselves. It took me a couple of times looking to actually find them.

    I enjoy your posts. Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  4. I'm glad to see that the geese are doing okay. The gander sure makes an effective guard. You did a good job of capturing the deer.

  5. Nice photos, Karen!! You really do make the most of your walks, don't you?

  6. It looks very beautiful around that lake :)

  7. I really had to look hard for the dear - what a great shot - I like the misty feeling to it and the colors.

    I think it's great that more businesses do things like put cones out to protect the wildlife that wanders to near. I think were all just a bit more eco-conscious than we once were. Good.
