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, Knitting, Reading

Back to my early morning walk today.  It was dark and rainy and I walked around the lake.  The rain was off and on so the umbrella was up and down quite a few times.  Walking around the first half of the lake I didn't see anyone and it was nice having the lake to myself.  People started showing up around the second half.  The white egret was in his usual spot by the foot bridge.  I think he was sleeping yet.  I also saw the heron standing at the edge of the water on the rocks.  Didn't spot any deer today but saw a few rabbits.  The geese were all on the water and were quite noisy.

We didn't go to the golf lesson yesterday because it was pouring rain.  I'm not sure if the lessons will just be extended a week or what.

It's Tuesday once again and I went to the knitting group.  It was inside at Savage Mill because of the weather.  It did clear up though and now it's sunny with big white puffy clouds and it's windy too.  More rain supposed to be coming in tomorrow afternoon.

After knitting I stopped off at the library.  Dropped a book off and got another one out.  Retired Knitter, a blogger friend and friend, gave me a book to read too called, A Walk Across America by Peter Jenkins.  She did a review of the book this morning on her blog and I commented that I'd have to put that to the top of my reading list.  Being the nice person that she is, brought her book to knitting and gave it to me to read.  Thanks! :-)

I have a few house chores that need to be done and blogs to read before I can spend some time reading this afternoon.
Not sure what I'll be up to later yet. 

A happy Tuesday to you.
Happyone :-)

  5. Sounds like a great book. Good for you, walking rain or shine. And good for you, taking that many steps in a day - have an extra bowl of ice cream! Enjoy the day. Art

  6. I haven't read that book, but the title does sound like it would be perfect for you.
    We have more rain here today. I'm hoping to get lots of reading time in.
