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 cool morning walk
When I stepped out the door this morning I thought maybe I should have worn long sleeves, it felt that cool, but it didn't take long for me to warm up. A cloudy morning and it looked like it would rain any minute, but it didn't and I stayed dry. A lot of people out walking around the lake and I saw quite a few people that I knew.
The last house I lived in I thought how lucky I was to have such nice places to walk and I had many walking friends that I would see along the way. I didn't think I would find a better place but moving here I have the best walking places ever! I have met many new walking friends. What was nice about both places is that I don't have to get in the car, I can just walk out the door and go.
Well, back to this walk. I saw two white egrets, one flying and one standing in the water close to the shore. The geese were making quite a stir in the water, honking and splashing about and a cute little chipmunk ran across the path in front of me.
I walked 6.2 miles.
This morning I'm headed out to meet the ladies for a happy time of knitting and talking, but first I have to have breakfast and do a few other things.
Enjoy your Tuesday.
