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

Just another day around the house

A warm and humid morning with a temperature of 69 but there was a bit of a breeze to keep things cool enough for a great walk.  I walked over to the lake and just walked part way around it.  I took some detours up other paths so I didn't make it all around the lake.  Once I left the park I walked around on sidewalks in a neighborhood.  Lots of people out around the lake.
I saw a couple of deer, six rabbits, a heron, white egret and the usual geese and ducks and birds.  The honeysuckle is now blooming and I smelled it before I saw it.  I like the smell but it sure grows crazy and takes over everything with their clinging creeping vines.
I came across all these geese in the road up near the front of the park.  It looked like they all were coming to greet me.   They all just kept coming and I just walked passed them and said good morning. : )  I didn't even get hissed at!
I walked over by the liquor store just before coming home but didn't find and coins today.  It's not going to be a very good month for coins.
I walked 6.4 miles.
Sunrise 5:46
Sunset 8:23
I had planned to go out this morning.  Nothing I had to do, I was just going to get out for a bit.  But after I hung up the wash out on the line I stayed out there.
It was so nice out that I sat down on the deck with a book and started reading.  Then I made a few more squares and ended up spending the morning out there.  I had breakfast there too.  I didn't come in till the sun started making its way over the deck.  Full sun doesn't come till later in the afternoon but I couldn't  move over much because of the clothes.  I like to keep the whites out longer because they get a bleaching from the sun.

In the afternoon I had a few things to do around the house and that pretty much covers my day.  Another usual evening at home.  Not that exciting but still a happy day.
Hope your day was happy too.
