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

Yesterday Ken and I went to Mt Airy and had lunch in a cute little sidewalk restaurant.  We consider it a special place of ours and went there to celebrate an early Valentine's Day.  Then we browsed around an antique mall.  A very nice Sunday afternoon.

The temperature stayed above freezing all night and this morning when I walked it was a mild 42 degrees.  Perfect weather for walking.  I only had to wear two long sleeved tee shirts and a hooded sweatshirt. I headed out to the lake thinking that all the ice would have melted.  Well, surprise surprise, that was not the case. The first half of the lake I walked was pretty good and I could easily get around the ice.  As a few people passed me going in the opposite direction they all told me how bad it was on the other side.  Barb recommended that I take the upper path and get on the park road until I get to the work station and then get back on the path.  So I took her advice and  went that way.
I walked along the road here.
 And came out here where I went to the right and headed back home.  Usually I come from the left to right here.
I think tomorrow I will stay away from the lake and stick to the sidewalks and street.
I walked 6.4 miles.

Enjoy your day.
Happy Valentine's Day to you.
Happyone :-)
