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

A beautiful morning

Oh my, what a beautiful morning.  Now that all the storms and rain have left the area it was a bright, clear morning with lots of sunshine and a temperature of 50 degrees. You just couldn't ask for better weather for walking around the lake.  I walked down the new sidewalk to the pier,  which you can barely see on the other side of the blue coming down barrier.  The sod is so nice and green from all the rain.  I thought they would put up a railing but I guess they aren't going to after all.
I stood on the pier and looked down into the water and could see a few fish swimming around.  I looked up and out and this is the view that was before me.  You can see one of the two little boats that were out on the lake.
There were only a handful of people out which really surprised me seeing how beautiful the weather was.  There were more people out yesterday.
I only saw ducks, geese, and heard lots of birds.  I wonder where all the other wildlife was hiding.
The lake usually has lots of lily pads and I notice the ones coming up in the water are all brown this year.  I wonder if draining the lake down low had anything to do with it.  I hope they turn green and have not died already.
All too soon my walk was over and I was back home again.
I found a dime and a penny and walked 6.5 miles.

 My email is acting up.  I can receive mail but can't send it out.  It just sits in the outbox.  It isn't my computer though, but Verizon.  This happened once before and it just starting working again after a couple of days.  I still have other email addresses to use though so I can still send email if I need to.

After all the rain, today was a good day to catch up on my laundry and I had three loads drying out on the line today.  It turned pretty again windy which made for fast drying clothes.

I finished up the last of my house cleaning this morning and after I eat lunch I was planning on going outside to plant my flowers, but it has turned cloudy and it is so windy out that I think I'll save that for a nicer day. 

Not sure what I want to do after lunch yet.  I'll just have to see what comes along.

Hope your Friday is a good one.
Happyone : )

  1. That's weird about your email. I was wondering if you had received mine.

    It is a gorgeous day here, too. I need to do some yardwork if I can find some motivation.

    How nice for you to be able to get close to the water again and really enjoy the improvements.

  2. Sounds like perfect walking weather and such pretty things to see.
    Hope you are able to get you flowers planted this weekend. I love the quote today.

  3. Your view of the lake is simply "take your breath away" gorgeous. Lovely photo. Have a wonderful weekend, you.

  4. May is my favorite month in Maryland!! Everything looks so green and lush!!
