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 quick post for Saturday

The temperature was 32 degrees as I stepped out the door on this early cloudy Saturday morning. I walked along sidewalks, roads, and paths on the route that takes me past the school.  I made a couple of changes to this route today to make it a tad longer.  I have quite a few routes that I've mapped out for myself.  It keeps my walk interesting. 
I saw ten deer! Six in a group, three in another group and then one by himself.  Didn't see many people out until I got to the school.  Some event is happening there today and lots of people there getting things ready.  Looks like a fair of some kind.  Didn't stop to ask.
The sun was a big red ball in the sky shining through some thin clouds, but then the clouds thickened up and it was just a gray morning.
I walked 6.4 miles.
Sunrise 6:51
Sunset 7:32
Just a quick early post today.  I have a hair appointment at 10:30.  Then meeting Ken for lunch and then we are off to Pennsylvania to Stoner's Auction this afternoon.  There's a couple of interesting things that I would like to bid on.

Enjoy your Saturday.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone :-)
Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow,
it only saps today of its joy.
~Leo Buscaglia


  1. That's one of my favorite quotes! Great words to live by.

  2. Sun here, thankfully. I willlllllll walk today! :-)

    You have fun things planned, so you won't mind the grayness. Enjoy!


  3. I like the quote, too! Have a nice weekend!

  4. You and Ken have a fun time this afternoon in Pennsylvania. Hope that you snag what you're interested in for a good bargain. Tell us where you eat and what you eat. :D

  5. An auction ~ how fun. Hope you are the successful bidder on what you are interested in. My hubby & I are off to have lunch out and then visit the garden centers.
    Have a happy weekend :)

  6. Thank you for that quote on not worrying - I had read it many years ago, but had forgotten about it. It is just as true now as it was then.

    Your pictures are just lovely. A SIX MILE walk???? Heavens, I am just trying to get my daily program up to 10,000 steps. You have my admiration. ...Marsha

  7. Sounds like you have a full day planned. It was an odd weather day here. Hope there's good auction weather in PA. Looking forward to seeing your finds.

  8. Sound advice! Thanks for reminding!

  9. Forsythia - just what I need!
