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

Back to my morning walk and I went around the lake today and then some for a total of almost seven miles.  The lake was beautiful with the reflection of the colored leaves in the very still lake.  I saw the heron and took a picture of him walking in the water at the edge of the lake.  Lots of deer about too - I saw at least a dozen all spread out all around.  Lots of people out also enjoying an early morning walk or run.  There were a few bike riders too.  I walked through the parking lot and found a dime! 

I didn't make pancakes over the weekend because we left early on Saturday and Ken was out on Sunday so I made myself some today for breakfast.  I only eat one and that does the trick to satisfy my sweet tooth until my evening snack. 

I'm staying home today hopefully to get some things done around the house.  I have a few loads of laundry drying outside and next I am going to clean the living room.  I have an urge to change things around a bit in there too.  That is always fun to do, though it is time consuming as well.

A little bit of bad news.  My mom slipped and fell on wet grass the other day and broke her right wrist trying to break her fall.  She goes back to the doctor this week to see if it is healing straight.  If not she may need surgery.  I ask those of you who pray to please say one for my mom.  Thanks.
I think the hardest thing for her now is that she can't knit. :-)  The knitters out there will know how she feels!!

Enjoy your Monday everyone.  Stay safe and do a kind deed for someone today.
Happyone :-)
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

  1. Really sorry to hear about that happening to your Mom! I hope she heals quickly!!
    Lovely pic!!

  2. Your photo today is stunning. I think it would be beautiful enlarged and framed. I just love the looks of fall foliage reflected on a lake and the addition of the egret is really nice.
    I just got caught up on your last few posts and see you shared your key lime pie recipe. Thanks for that. I plan to try it.
    I'm sorry to hear about your mom's fall. I will be praying that she will not need surgery and that she will soon be healed completely.

  3. So very sorry to hear about your Mom. Hope she heals quickly and doesn't need surgery! The lake truly did look like a mirror on this morning.

  4. How wonderful for you to see a beautiful sight like that and be able to capture it and share. Wow!

    That's awful about your mom. Those kind of breaks happen so often. I hope she doesn't need surgery and that she heals well.

  5. I'm so sorry that your mom broke her wrist. No fun for a knitter! Hope that she finds some enjoyable pursuits that don't require a wrist.

    Beautiful photo of the reflections in the water. Seven miles again, eh?

  6. Hope that wrist heals soon and your mom is not in any pain.

  7. I missed checking my blogs on Monday so I missed this post. Sorry to hear about your mom. That is dreadful that she can't knit. That must be terrible for her. Hope it is healing well. Said a little prayer.
