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

Around my lake again

The nice stretch of sunny days has come to and end but it was still a good morning to get out and go for my walk.  It rained during the night but was just cloudy as I walked around the lake.  I took the photo when I took a path off the main paved path and went down to the water.
I saw a couple of deer on the way to the lake and I watched as two heron flew together over the water.  One is a treat to see but two together is really something.  It was nice to go hiking at the park yesterday but I am really fortunate to have this park and lake to walk around so close to home.
I walked 6.4 miles
Sunrise 5:56
Sunset 8:12
I forgot to say in my previous post that on the hike at the park yesterday I found a penny and a nickel.  Kenny just couldn't believe I even found coins in the woods. : )
I've been home all day today.  Ken is coming home late tonight and I had the whole day to get a lot of stuff done.  I had a long list and didn't do a thing on it.  I ended up spending a lot of time up in my loft sewing squares together.  Did a little reading and did jigsaw puzzles on line. 

I've just eaten the last of the vanilla chocolate swirl ice cream up.  There wasn't much left so I didn't get my usual portion but it was still good.  No matter how much ice cream I eat, I always wish there was more.    

I am going to see if there is anything worth watching on television and if not I'll read.
Hope all went well with your day.
I'm sure glad blogger got back to normal.

Happyone : )

  1. Hi There, I didn't get things on my list done either today... BUT--I had a good excuse. My big job was to clean the deck furniture --and it rained here most of the day... Pretty good excuse, don't you think???

    Have a great weekend.

  2. What a great lake shot! Love the ripples. PS I am having a turtle brownie tonight...

  3. Ice cream is like that, isn't it!!

    Lately, the herons have been vociferous and the sound they make is so weird!!!

  4. I didn't get my blog posted, still isn't. Since it is suppose to pour most of the day tomorrow, maybe I'll get around to it. I've been to Redbox movie rentals and grabbed a couple of movies yesterday for a rainy weekend (Salt and King's Speech). Returned them today for two more tonight (The Social Network and Hereafter). We got into the popcorn last night, probably will again tonight. Ice cream is dangerous for me, it evaporates every sitting :) You are very lucky to have your lake for walking. I am finding a new streets in the neighborhood for walking.
