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 day of Corvettes and home again.

We had a nice time at Corvette Carlisle on Saturday.  I didn't take my car but rode along with Ken in his yellow Vette.  We met up with a few other Corvettes and all drove up together.
Here are all the cars in row.
The yellow one is Ken's.
That's me on the right by the red car.

A nice cool sunny walk this morning.  It was the first day back to school for the kids so there was a bit more traffic.  Back to seeing all those yellow buses again.  I walked 6.7 miles today and went around the lake.  Not many people at first but saw quite a few people as I got farther into my walk.  There were a lot of groups of women walking together.  Walking along the upper path I spotted a deer with three little ones.  Two of them looked about the same
size but the third one looked smaller.  At first all four of them didn't hear me and kept eating. Then they spotted me and I stood still and we all just started at each other for a while. I was surprised they stood there so long looking at me before they all ran off into the tall grass. All the other usual wildlife was about too.  Rabbits, geese, ducks, a ground hog, squirrels and birds.

I'm planning on staying home today and getting some stuff done around the house.  I'll do some fun stuff too. :-)
I'm a bit behind on blog reading so I'll be visiting blogs for a while too.

I hope you have a great start to the new week.
Enjoy your Monday.
Happyone :-)
There aren't enough days in the weekend.

  1. Would you believe that I never knew that the photos here would enlarge to an entire page? Gee whiz. Anyway, I'm going to have some fun enlarging photos from now on. Great pics of the fawns.

  2. Now those are some nice looking cars. I think Ken's yellow one stands out the most.
    Hope you are enjoying the rest of your Monday.

  3. Do you think she had triplets? I saw a deer with twins today. Our kids started back to school last week.

  4. I love encounters with deer. They can be pretty tame at times. I once worked at the Bon Secours Spiritual Center in Marriottsville. The center is located within 350 acers of woodland. The deer there were very tame. You could walk down to the parking lot and 5 or 6 could be standing on the lawn - and never move when you walked by - they would stop and watch but never really move. I loved it. Sometimes you could see a whole herd mulling around in a nearby field. They never feared people there and they ran off, sometimes they would walk away, but not a run. It was always a peaceful scene. Perfect for a Spiritual Center.

  5. Corvettes...one of my all time favorite cars. I've owned a lot of cars in my day but never a Corvette. Maybe someday? :-)

  6. That's a nice collection of Corvettes in your first photo. I've always wanted to own a Corvette but never have.
    I like your deer pictures as well.

  7. Barb, I don't think so. Its hard to tell from the picture but one is smaller than another. Lots of deer around, one maybe was just with the others.

    George and Old Geezer, I would highly recommend getting one! :-) Fantastic cars!!

  8. Such beautiful deer--my hubby is obsessed with them! And the Corvette is pretty nice too- hubby is obsessed with them too!! I love your everyday life--and you know there is no such thing as an ordinary or average life! I'm walking vicariously through you since I'm not exercising at all at the moment!!! LOL Do you think that might help me lose a little weight? I can only wish!

  9. Did you ever wonder if the deer are 'walking' in their groups, too!
