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

What a beautiful

day we are having - sunny and bright. I took my usual morning walk.  I walked around the lake and went 6.5 miles.  It started out very calm but the wind picked up a bit and I had trouble keeping my ball cap from blowing off my head.  Stopped to talk to a couple walking friends who I haven't seen for a while.  They are now walking later again since it has been staying dark longer in the morning.  I didn't hear very many birds this morning, though there are lots of crickets or grasshoppers around making for a noisy morning.  The cute little chipmunk was there once again but I didn't see any deer.  Mondays are pretty quite around the lake and I enjoy that.  Sometimes I feel that this is my very own lake.

A good day for laundry and I have two loads outside drying right now.  Staying home today getting some cleaning done.

Number two golf lesson is later today.  Ken will have to leave work a little early so we can be at our lesson at 4:00.  Looking forward to that.  Glad the weather has been so nice for these lessons.  I probably shouldn't have said that, next week it will be raining!

Well, I'd better get back to work.
Hope your Monday is bright and sunny.
Happyone :-)
