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.

A mid morning walk

I walked later than usual this morning because there was a thunder storm and I waited until there was a break. For the most part the rain stayed away while I walked. Not many people out walking and the people that I did see weren't the usual ones. Most of the people I see in the early morning are the people exercising before they are off to work. They don't have the luxury of waiting for better weather like I do.
Here are some pictures I took along my walk around the lake.
A full stream of muddy water after all the rain once again.
Under a canopy of trees.
Canadian geese swimming away from me.
I'm on a bridge taking this picture.
A peek through the trees at the lake.
Some Black Eyed Susan's - Maryland's state flower.

I'll be staying home the rest of the day. I'm going to bake some Rye Bread - haven't made that kind before.
Chocolate Chip Cookies sound like a good idea too.
A little cleaning will get done.
I've been knitting on some of those white afghan squares and will finish one of those.
Then I'll read.
I'm thinking going out for supper sounds nice too. :-)

What ever you're doing today I hope it's a good one for you.

Happyone :-)
Your children will follow your footsteps
more easily than they will follow your advice.
Then again some people learn what NOT to do from a parent.

  3. I'm glad the rain mostly held off so you could get in your walk. It's nice not to be a prisoner of the clock, isn't it?
