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.

Friday morning walk

I bet you can guess that I'm going to say it was another hot and humid morning. Because it was so hot I had planned on just walking 4 miles or so along the paths under the trees. There is an intricate pattern of paths throughout all the neighborhoods with lots and lots of off shoots that go all over the place. I have my usual routes that I follow but once in a while I will just follow paths to see which streets they come out on, and that is what I did today. When I do that I don't usually keep a good track on how far I am walking because I get caught up in the walk and end up walking farther than I intended. That is what I did today. I ended up walking 6.6 miles! That is 13,527 steps. As you can imagine by the time I got home I could just about wring my clothes out.
Not many people out - just a couple runners and a couple dog walkers. I saw deer, bunnies, the fox and listened to the many birds.
The morning sky.One of the paths I walked along.
My walk ended with finding a lucky penny. A good ending to a nice long walk.
And now it's time for breakfast! I'm thinking cinnamon toast this morning.

Enjoy your Friday.
I'll probably post again this evening.
Happyone :-)

  1. I bet later on in the day, the fox, deer, and bunnies won't even be out!

  2. You have a lovely area to walk in. I really enjoy your descriptions.
    It was 75 degrees here at 6:30 a.m., quite steamy. Needless to say, I did not spend much time outside today, just a couple of trips down to the mailbox and a potty break for Dotty Dog. I'm looking forward to the day when the forecasters predict an approaching "cold front". I love to walk, and I miss it, but I can't take the heat; have to coddle my blood pressure.
    So I'll just keep enjoying your walks!

  3. I love your photos! I never pass up a lucky penny--and cinnamon toast is a favorite with me too! As soon as I can get to the store for bread flour I'm going to try out the French Bread recipe in my machine! Thanks for posting the recipe!

  6. Say have you seen PWoman's recipe for "real cinnamon toast"? It's out of this world delicious.

  7. Vee - No but I'll go check it out. My cinnamon toast is just butter on toast with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on it!
