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

One fine day

Not quite sunny this morning on my walk but it wasn't raining and the sun was trying to appear. It was so good to be outside again walking after yesterday's short walk in the mall. As I walked along I saw streams that are full with water, green grass and green plants along the banks and buds on the trees. Many birds were up in the trees and as I walk alone it's as though the birds are singing their morning songs just for me. :-) Now how can you even compare that to walking in the mall?!!
I saw the fox again and stopped to get a picture - not a very good one but there he is.

I was so happy to see a little house finch at the bird feeder out on the deck this afternoon. He was there the first time on Saturday. I haven't been able to get any pictures of him yet.

I got some work done on the computer today instead of just playing around on it. Had to get those bills paid.
Did a little cleaning, baked some more bread and read.

I took this picture standing right outside my front door. They are about to start building the next couple of rows of townhouses. Right across the street there will be row of 4 and beyond that there will be a row of 6 - all are sold already.

This evening we started to watch Carousel, a musical from the 50's but it was really corny and we turned it off and watched a couple episodes of Seinfeld. I had a few of the chocolate chip cookies that I made yesterday for my snack and did a little knitting again as well.

During the day we had sunshine and then late evening it clouded up again and we got some more rain - even some thunder claps.

Hope you can look back on this Tuesday as a day of happiness.
Happyone :-)


  1. Oh, so your view is going to change completely! You'll need your walks more than ever then. The picture of the fox is very good.

    Carousel was made in part in my corner, but I've never seen it. I just looked it up and the plot sounds interesting, but like so many of those old films, I can well imagine that it just hasn't stood up.

  2. Carousel is corny but the music is beautiful.
    The fox looks healthy. What a neat photo!

  3. I have never seen Carousel but I guess I didn't miss much.
    The picture of the fox is fantastic.

  4. I've walked in malls, but it sure can't compare to walking outdoors, especially when you can get a good picture of a fox as you did. Neat capture!

  5. Great picture of the fox. Several years ago I had one in my backyard, but haven't seen one since. It's probably getting too built up around here.

  6. I love the picture of the fox. A few days ago I was walking and my husband called me to come in. The coyottes were running he said. I could hear them howling but didn't know what the sound was.

  7. That's a very good photo of the fox! I've seen some here, but have never had time to grab my camera.
