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

Early morning

A chilly, still and sunny morning and perfect weather for a morning walk. I walked my usual 6 miles around the lake. Today the sun shone over it and steam was coming off the water. Made for a pretty picture!I saw a couple of deer, the groundhog again and a few rabbits. Plus the usual birds, ducks and geese. Lots of people out around the lake already this morning too. What a busy place so early in the morning. Everyone seemed to be happy as well. :-)
The other day I passed a woman who I've stopped to chat with a few times and thought I remembered her name and said
Good Morning, Charlene?
She said No, Joanne, Good Morning, Debbie?
I said No, Karen and we both laughed.
We passed by each other this morning and we both got the names right which caused us to laugh again. I don't think I'll forget her name anymore.
Another woman was walking two poodles, a white one and a black one. They both had little knitted sweaters on that she had made and were so cute!
Such a beautiful morning for walking.
Now to get on with the rest of my day.
Lets make this a good one.
Happyone :-)


  1. Good morning Dear Karen,

    That scene must have been something. Funny. And the picture is beautiful. Thursday is almost over here... you have a great day ahead.

  2. Your picture is just perfect with the mist rising from the lake. Morning walks are a great way to meet nice people.

  3. What a difference a day makes! Loved the romance of the fog over the water, but a clear day is more cheering. Now don't forget Charlene/Joanne! LOL!

  4. That is a fabulous photo, Karen! I'd love to be walking with you in the early morning as the vapor is rising.

  5. That was a nice and funny morning. The photo is gorgeous.
    I wish you a happy weekend.

  6. So funny about the names. I am so bad at names I try to stay away from calling someone by name . LOL!

  7. At least you both said good morning!

  8. This is a tunning pic Karen! Would look great framed :)
