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 new route and a good cleaning

This morning was another warm one but today there were a couple of rain showers to cool me off though light enough that I didn't get wet. The rain felt good and it had that wet pavement smell that I like. I planned out a new route today walking down some paths and along the streets too. It's another connect a path route. I was trying for a 6 mile route but this one was a little bit longer at 6.5 miles. Its a nice walk with a good variety of walking places and no back tracks. I think most people walk the same route every day because I see the same people on the same paths. So I was surprised to see a walker that I see when walking around the lake on the path over by the school.
Didn't see very many people or animals, a very quite walk today.

A bit of paving did get done yesterday - two streets - and one of them happened to be our back street by the garage. More work got started this morning but after it started raining they all packed up and went home. So paving will continue tomorrow.

My two granddaughters have birthday's coming up next month. Taryn reads my blog sometimes, so I won't mention her present. But I can mention Scout's. She will be 7 and her present will be her first Vera Bradley purse. Its an Audrey and just the right size for her. :-)
I figured I'd get myself a little something too, so I got a Mini Hipster (red).
I'm having another stay at home day and today I'm cleaning the living room. Not just the everyday surface clean, but a "good clean." The kind that takes the whole day. I'm taking a break from it right now and will continue after I eat lunch, which I'll do when I get done here. A baked potato and salad sounds just the thing.

I hope this Wednesday you find bits of happiness scattered throughout your day.
Happyone :-)

  1. Awwww..... It is Taryn and Scout's birthday coming up... so cute...... I am so excited to see their gifts now...

  2. I love that just rained on the pavement smell as well. Brings back good memories now that you mentioned it.

  3. Love the bags...
    Great that you got your walk in BEFORE the deluge.

  4. That's a nice change for you to have a different route to walk. The bags are quite sweet too.

  5. Hmmm... I do read your blog. :P

    Love and miss you very much!

  6. A new nice place for walking :)

  7. So how's Taryn doing way out West? Good thing you didn't talk about her present! You're starting Scout off early with a genuine Vera Bradley...very special.

  8. Oh, I like Eleanor Roosevelt's quote. So true! So much is just in our perception of what other's perceive!
