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 Sunny Morning Walk

Finally after 4 days of gloomy morning walks this morning was cool, crisp, and full of sunshine. One of those days that I just didn't feel like going back home and just wanted to walk all day. Thirst and hunger drove me home. I walked part way around the lake with my walking friend Jeanne. I also saw another walker friend and stopped for a little chat with him too.
I stopped at the edge of the water and sat on a bench for a bit. It was so nice to just sit there for a while. I also took a few pictures of some ducks swimming along which I'll post on my picture blog in a few days.
I also walked down a pathway in a neighborhood
and came upon this trail along the way.
It didn't go very far, only about 1/4 mile.
This wooden lookout place was at the end. I saw a couple of deer while standing there for a few minutes.

I read quite a bit of my book in the afternoon and should finish it later tonight.

Ken and I went out again tonight. This time we went to Red Robin. We had a nice time eating and talking. :-) We plan on seeing each other tomorrow as well.

Tonight will find me watching a bit of television, eating ice cream, knitting and reading.

I hope you found some bits of happiness scattered throughout your day.
Karen :-)
The woods would be very silent if no birds
sang there except those who sang best.


  1. Isn't the sunshine wonderful? It was a glorious day here. Unfortunately both of us had doctor's appointments and were indoors much more than we wanted to be. But we both got good reports so I won't complain.

  2. So a sunny morning!!!!! But here it's turned a bit cloudy today.... But it looks beautiful as well.

  3. Your walks are an inspiration. Thank you so much for telling us about them! Love your blog!

  4. The sun is always such a welcome sight after a few rainy, gloomy days. We had several rainy days, but today is gorgeous. Glad to hear you and Ken will be having dinner again. Have fun.

  5. That trail looks a bit deserted. I wonder what the platform is for? Maybe high water? If it gets swampy back there I bet it's great bird watching!

  6. Today I did some windows to let some of that glorious sunshine in!


Hello my friend.
