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.

I took this morning picture walking around the lake. I managed to capture the geese flying into the sun. Walked a bit over 6 miles. A little cooler than yesterday and had to watch for some icy spots again. By late morning the temperature was up to 50 degrees. A nice walk again and saw a few other people around the lake. I stopped on the bridge at the small end of the lake and was just looking out at the water and the geese. Someone saw that I had stopped and asked if I was okay. I said I was fine and was just stopping to look at the scenery. :-) So many people just walk or run by and don't take the time to see what they are passing. They miss so much!
A few rabbits and the usual deer were scattered around the lake.

The other day I had to throw out a pair of some nice well worn soft jeans. There were just too many holes in them and the material was paper thin. I could only wear them around the house. I hate when a favorite pair of jeans have to be thrown out.
So this morning I went to Ross to find another pair. I always have good luck finding them there though I do have to try on a bunch. I can't believe how much a size differs. I usually wear a 4. Today I got two pair. One was a 2 and the other was a 6 and they both fit like a 4!! I also bought a yellow and black check short jacket. On Tuesday if you're 55 or older you get a 10% discount. So today I got all three items for $19 and change!! You can't beat that!

I still had left over pizza from Friday so I had a piece of that for lunch when I got home.
Did some shredding which is always fun for me. :-)
Straightened out my closet and threw some things away. I have a tendency to save clothes that are old for painting or working. But really how many of those do I need. I've just kept a few things for work clothes.
I moved some of the books that I have to read from my loft down stairs to the living room. I am going to try not to go to the library so often so I can work on reading some of the books that I own. I can just see you rolling your eyes Debbi! :-) I've said this many times before and it never seems to work! :-)
I also read some more of one of those library books. I have 4 of them out right now.

This evening Ken and I went out to eat at a Mexican restaurant near the airport.
Home now and about to go watch Jeopardy.

I hope Tuesday was a happy day for you.
Happyone :-)
Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

  1. Nice photo; great blog. Just want to let you know I appreciate it. It makes a difference, doesn't it, to know someone "out there" cares? Well, I do. Keep up the good work.

  2. My goodness, you are a tiny little lady. My wedding dress was a size 4, but that was 28 years ago :-). Your dedication to walking definitely pays off. I wish I had your determination. My hats off to you.

  4. I'm glad you take the time to view (and share) the scenery on your walks. I sympathize with you about your books -- I still own many that I haven't read.

  5. The sunrise photos are lovely! I've seen the geese returning to my park --so many yesterday but only seagulls today.

    I have too many books but I can't part with one of them! :-)

  6. Great photo of the geese. Actually, that was quite nice that someone was concerned enough to inquire if you were okay. =) And now maybe they will stop and appreciate the scenery, as well.

    Like the Danny Kaye quote!
