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.

Walking

Sunrise 6:23
Sunset 7:59
I woke up this morning to rain hitting the windows and thought it is going to be a wet walk today.  It really wasn't that bad though.  I brought my umbrella with me and had to use it for the first half of my walk.  It rained pretty hard at first and then it eased off to a nice steady light rain.  I walked around the lake and it was actually nice walking in the rain listening to the rain on the umbrella and dripping off the trees. I didn't see anyone for the longest time so I had the lake paths to myself.  It was great.  The rain let up and finally stopped altogether.  I spotted the deer and her 2 babies and took this picture.
 I also saw the white egret again, bunnies, and the ducks seemed to be enjoying the rain.  I watched a Cardinal snatch a cicada out of a tree.  The cicada fell to the ground making a funny noise and the Cardinal quickly got it again, happy to have a good breakfast.
About three quarters of the way around the lake I started seeing people again.  
I was about a mile from home when my phone rang.  It was my son David. :-)  He was out walking too (on a break from work) so we got to talk and walk together!  Nice! 
It started raining again by the time I made it home.

Now it is time for breakfast and to start the rest of my day.
Have a good one.
I'll probably be back again later tonight.
Happyone :-)

  1. I've never seen twin deer, but John had that joy of seeing triplets last week on his walk. He described them like young goats leaping and frolicking in play. You guys are so blessed. Did your son catch the walking gene from you or do you just inspire him?
