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

A beautiful day
Quite cool this morning as I started out on my walk. Only 46 degrees but it was a beautiful morning once the sun came up. The air was crisp and cool and it really felt like Fall. These kind of mornings are my favorite ones for walking!! I walked the connect the path route and then some. It was just so nice I wanted to keep walking. Ended up walking 7.3 miles. Along one path I saw a family of deer - mom, dad and two babies. On another path I saw a mom and two babies. Not many people out but then I don't see as many along the paths as around the lake. The picture is one of the paths I walked along.
The golf lesson went well yesterday. We did a little more putting, learned how to hit balls out of the sand trap, and practiced at the driving range. The hour flies by. Of the three of us taking the lessons, I am doing the worst but I'm having fun and Patrick is still very patient with me! :-) I still haven't taken any pictures but I will try to take some by the end of the lessons. Only 2 more to go. Then it will just be lots of practicing. It is really helpful having the lessons. At least I know what I'm doing wrong!
After golf we went out to eat and right next door was a golf store so we went in and looked around after we ate. I'd never been in a store that was entirely golf stuff. What a fun time just walking around and looking at all the little extras!! I've picked out a nice beginners woman's golf bag and clubs in a nice pink color!! I'm thinking a very nice Christmas present perhaps!! :-)
I've just about used up the picture space on blogger with 98% used up. I thought about not blogging, (for a few seconds) then thought about starting a new one but then just decided to buy more space. It is very cheap - only $5 a year. So I did that yesterday.
Tuesday has rolled around once again so off to knitting I went this morning. Enjoyed my time as usual talking and knitting with friends.
I'm in the middle of ironing now and just took a break to post this blog and read a few more blogs. Back to ironing now.
