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

An Afternoon Walk

Since the weather was predicted to be 40 degrees and sunny this afternoon, I put off my morning walk till afternoon.  They were right and the afternoon was absolutely gorgeous for walking.  As soon as I got home from church, I didn't even eat lunch, but put on my walking clothes and was out the door on my way to the lake.  Oh happy days to be back at my lake!!  There were dozens of people there with the same idea, though I didn't see any one I knew.   With so many people, all the wild life was in hiding.  There were hardly any geese but lots and lots of sea gulls.  I wondered where they all came from because usually I only see one every so often. 
A lot of melting going on which caused a lot of puddles.  I only hope it doesn't all freeze again overnight.
It was just a great walk and felt so good to walk in the sun.
I walked 6.4 miles.

Since the day was so nice, I hung a load of laundry outside too.  It has been a while since I could do that.  They are out there now blowing in the breeze.

Not much time left today to do much in my loft so I will probably just wait and continue up there tomorrow.  I found some switch and outlet plates on line that I liked and ordered them.  A singe is shown here but I got a double switch plate and 4 outlets.
That's it for today.
Hope its a sunny day where you are too.
Happyone :-)

  1. That sun today was glorious, was it not??? Glad you could take advantage of it and enjoy your walk.

  2. Oh I could stick your photo in my mosaic today and it would look right at home. We must've been under the same weather system as it was a glorious day and a lot of melting was going on here as well. Of course, there has to be a lot of melting to get rid of all of this. Love the outlets you found on line...they'll look great in your loft.

  3. Funny that you talked about seagulls too. Where did they fly in from??

  4. Hooray for getting to the lake!!!

    And oh your switch-plates are delicious!!!!!!!!

    Hugs and ♥'s...
