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

Walk, work and pie

Another day, another walk. :-) Great walking weather this morning - cool and crisp.  It was nice to see the start of another day as the sun came up.  I walked along streets and paths and made up another route connecting the paths up.  Only saw a couple of other people out -  the others must have been walking around the lake. In a back yard along the path I saw seven deer having breakfast in someones garden.  The people would be happy to know that they all ran away when they saw me.  It was too dark to get a good picture.  I tried but all that came out was their bright eyes from the flash.  I also saw the white of a bunnies cotton tail as it ran away into the trees.
As I come to the end of one path, I crossed the street and went down another.
 Another path I walked along.

I took some money with me today and just before coming home, I stopped in at the Giant to pick up a couple of things. Sour cream for the taco salad tonight and sweetened condensed milk for the key lime pie I made this afternoon.  There were only a couple of people in the store at 8:00 in the morning.  I walked up and down most of the aisles and probably added half a mile to my walk.
I walked a little over 6 miles.

I washed and hung the sheets out to dry.  On these cool days the sheets smell extra good line dried.  Also got some of that house cleaning done that I didn't do yesterday.

Here's the Key Lime Pie that I made this afternoon.  Very simple to make.  I used the recipe off the bottle of Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice.
A 9 inch graham cracker crust.
 Filling in, baked for 15 minutes and now it just has to cool.
No ice cream tonight, I'll have pie instead. A dollop of whipped cream would I think go nice on that. 

That's been my day so far, I just have a few more things I need to get done yet before I can sit and do a little knitting or reading. 

Hope your Friday was a good day with lots of sunshine.
Happyone :-)


  1. I like to go to the store early in the morning because then I have it almost by myself - I am not happy with crowded places.
    Nice pie ใƒ„

  2. The trails you walk are wonderful and full of early-morning creatures. Yummy to the pie!

  3. Nicely done post. Keep it up! Thanks. PS: Your profile needs editing. You are not average.

  4. As I sit here at 8:30 this Friday evening, I think of you enjoying a delicious homemade key lime pie and later laying your head on a pillowcase scented with the sweet smells of fresh air and I think that sounds like a most lovely way to end your day. I love key lime pie. Have never made one, but do enjoy one from the freezer section of the grocery store :). Line dried sheets ~ heavenly. One day when I live in a neighborhood more accepting of clotheslines I hope to recapture that bit of heaven.
    May your weekend be wonderful, my friend.

  5. I love pie. Alll kinds of pie. It is my favorite way to end a meal. I do not, however, like to make pies. I am not into cooking. But I am into eating. It is a problem. :-)

  6. I like empty marts as well...it makes me feel better... the new path looks great Karen as does the lemon pie

  7. YUMMMMM!!!!! loving this weather!

  8. I love Key Lime Pie!!! (What??? You lost my phone # ????) And I also like being in the Giant that early when there's no one there!

  9. The scenery on your walks is beautiful. I have enjoyed the pictures.

  10. Being at the supermarket first thing before it gets busy is one of life's little triumphs.

  11. My mother will be snagging your key lime pie recipe... Seven deer munching on the garden remains...that's not what the homeowner would like to hear.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
