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 morning was another one of those humid ones but I had a nice walk around the lake. All those people from yesterday who didn't walk were out there today. It appears that there will be another event at the lake this weekend. There are markers in the water and they have put fences up along part of the path. I think I'll stay away from the lake for the next few days. I saw the white egret again, he likes to stand at the waters edge in the water lilies. I guess it is good fishing there! A few bunnies were eating at the edge of the path. Some of them are quite small. The black duck and the white goose are still hanging out together.
I walked 6.7 miles. I have been walking a little over 6 miles lately. The main reason for this is that I have joined a website where you keep track of your steps for the day. Most people try for 10,000 steps a DAY. I am just keeping track of the steps I take on my walk. I gave myself a goal of 12,000 steps which is about 6 miles for me. So now I've become a bit obsessed with the steps I take and try to surpass that goal each day. Today my steps were 13,774. I'm trying hard not to leave my pedometer on for the whole day because then who knows where I'll end up walking!! :-)
This morning I'll be going to the commissary. I still have to make up my list so I'd better go to that and have some breakfast.
Have a great Thursday.
