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

Beautiful walking weather

This morning it was cool and sunny and just perfect for walking.  I went around the lake and like most times I took the upper path.  Not many people take the long route so it's nice and quiet there and that's where I saw the deer today.  I also saw a few gold finches and rabbits there too.  The heron was standing at the waters edge among all the geese and the white goose and black duck are still hanging around together.  It's easy to spot them because they stand out among all the rest.  Almost everyone I saw today said something about how nice the weather was.
I walked 6.2 miles.

It seems a nice day to be driving around in the car with the windows open.  I'll be making a stop at the dentist to give them some of the cookies I made yesterday.  I have to go the library too.  I put an audio book on hold and it's now ready for pickup.
No other plans yet for the rest of the day.
Ken did come home early enough last night for us to have some ice cream and watch Dexter.
Make this Thursday a good one!
Happyone. :-)


  1. i agree wd you karen... i wud prefer walking where there is no one... tat wud be a nice walk.... i like ur new poll... :-D

  2. Interesting poll question you've got going there. I lied. ;D

    No, no, I told the truth. Maybe.

    When do you listen to your audio books? While doing housework?

  3. Vee - I listen to audio books on my computer which is in the kitchen so when I'm cooking or cleaning up is when I listen. I can't listen while I'm doing housework because I'm all over the house and wouldn't be able to hear it. I can't listen in the car either because I'm too busy driving and can't concentrate on the book.

  4. Everything seems so refreshed in this weather -- a little surprised, but refreshed!

  5. Vee, I forgot to say that I also listen to books on my laptop in my loft while I do some kind of needlework.

  6. We're enjoying some cooler weather as well. It's great for walking.
