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

My morning walk
A beautiful cool morning for walking. I saw the sun come up and it stayed up for the whole of my walk, but once I got home it turned cloudy. I started out walking down the road away from the lake, then walked a path through the woods and then headed over to the lake and walked around it. I got to the lake a little later than usual and there were less people there. It is probably an in-between time after people are walking before work and the time people get all the kids off to school. I saw the heron and lots of rabbits and squirrels. The geese were around too being quite noisy! I saw nine deer and I took a picture of one of them as it stopped eating to take a look at me.
It was so nice out and it felt so good to be walking that I didn't feel like going back home and I ended up walking a bit over 8 miles. I know that sounds far but it really didn't seem that far as I was walking.
I've got a load of laundry going in the washer which I'll hang outside (hope the sun comes back out) and then do a few other chores around the house. I'll spend a little time in the kitchen making spinach and bean soup and some rolls. The rest of the day will just have to unfold as it happens.
A very happy Wednesday to you!
