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

No rain today on my walk but it was cool and cloudy. Stopped for a bit to talk to another walker - we were going in opposite directions so didn't walk together.
I spotted a geese family having breakfast down by the lake. :-)
Talking about geese - remember the geese from the parking lot where Ken works? They are now a family of five. The eggs must have hatched a while ago and she had been sitting on the babies protecting them because this morning they were all walking around and by the afternoon Mom and Dad and the 3 babies had all left.

I watched the workers building up the cinder block wall on the new townhouses for a while. They have quite a system going and it's fun to watch. I took this picture out of my bedroom window.
Didn't feel like doing my exercise this afternoon but I made myself get up and do it and then felt good after I was done. :-)

Spent some time up in the loft working on the cross stitch. I can't believe how fast the time goes when I'm doing that!!

Read some more of Breaking Dawn and I'm going to go and finish it in just a bit.

A pretty quiet day around the house.
Hope you made some happy memories today.
Happyone :-)


  1. Those geese really facinate me. Sounds like you had a good day.

  2. I met Taryn yesterday at the salon. She's very sweet!
    Funny how exercise does that, isn't it?

  3. Don't forget to show us your progress on the cross stich from time to time...I know you're just getting started.

    The geese family is so cute...I count four babies...are there more or did anything happen to one of them?

    Enjoy another beautiful day in Happy Town.

  4. Vee - there are 5 babies in the picture. Four kind of together on the right and one is off to the left in front of papa.

  5. I always think it's amazing how well critters like ducks and geese can adapt and thrive in our habitat. Remarkable.

  6. Of all the geese we have around here, I have never seen the babies. They're sure cute.

  7. I just LOVE the family of geese, it's adorable!!
