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 little break

This morning was the hottest morning yet for walking. I went on the connect the path route again knowing it would be a bit cooler under all the trees. A mile into my walk and I was soaked. I saw a few people out and they all looked as hot as I felt. I walked passed a yard with a sprinkler going and just walked right in it. Boy did that feel good and I felt lots better after getting cooled off. I probably should have cut my 6 mile walk down a mile or two. I'm sure glad I walk first thing in the morning.
Saturday I got a little bit of a sunburn on my shoulders and my sweating this morning made little water blisters and now my shoulders are peeling.
I'll be staying home today inside where it is nice and cool!

Today is my Sister in Law Kathy's birthday so I want to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I just got off the phone with her. So nice to have a sister in law who is also a friend. :-)

This will be my last post for a little while. Taking a little break from blogging. Not long, I'll be back in a week or so. I'll still be posting on my photo blog and I'll still be around reading blogs.

Enjoy your days. Be back soon.
Happyone :-)
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.

  1. Have a nice blog break my friend. Enjoy your walks and your life.

  2. I just got an E-mail from a good friend who lives in MD - she told me how hot and humid it's been (record temps!). Have a good break and stay cool.

  3. Your weather sounds similar to ours. We're supposed to hit 97 today. Cooling off in the sprinkler sounds like a refreshing idea.
    I have a sister-in-law named Kathy too. I think of her as a best friend so I agree with your comment :-).
    Have an enjoyable blog break. You will be missed.

  4. This is practically unheard of...your taking a break that is. I would've loved to see you march right into that sprinkler. Have fun...hope that this means a little vacation in your future...

  5. Have a fantastic break! I'll do the same :))

  6. Oh! The joys of a summer sprinkler! Good for you!
    Enjoy your break, Karen!

  7. Be careful when walking in such hot weather. But I hope you enjoy your break -- stay cool.
