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

No title today

This morning was another sunny, hot and humid one with a temperature of 75 already when I left for my walk.  There wasn't even a hint of a breeze so it was quite warm. I just wandered around not walking any particular route.  I stayed on the paths in the woods to stay in the shade.  Someone seems to have lost a bike on one of the paths I walked along.
I saw a fox today.  He looked fat and healthy and I imagine he was pretty warm with that fur coat he has to wear.  I saw very few people out and it was a very quiet morning.  Since I wasn't walking on any route I really didn't know how far I was walking.  I started getting really thirsty so headed back home.  I didn't want to look down at my pedometer because I figured if I wasn't close to six miles I would want to keep walking and I really needed to get a drink.  When I got home and looked at my pedometer I realized I had walked 7.2 miles.  No wonder why I was so thirsty.  I always say I could live without air conditioning but I tell you, it was so nice to walk into a nice cool house and drink a nice big cold glass of water. : )
I added up the coins I found this month and the total came to $1.19.  Here it is all in a little stack.

Sunset 8:28
 I looked out the window and there sitting in one of the wildflower pots was a Mourning Dove.  I thought maybe she was laying and egg or two but she eventually just flew off.
My two loads of laundry dried really fast today out on the line.  Laundry is about all the work I did today.  I just couldn't get motivated to do much. I read some more of World Without End and should be done with it very soon.  It's taken me forever to read it.  It's really good too.  There is 1014 pages and I'm up to page 895.  Maybe I'll finish it later this evening.     

I ate the last piece of birthday cake up for breakfast and now I can get back to eating normal.  I so did enjoy that cake but I really need to lose a few pounds now!!

I'm off now to figure out what to make for supper.
Hope all is well in your part of the world.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )

  1. That abandoned kid's bike, is kind of a scary sight. Hope all is well, with the owner. Can't figure out why a kid would willingly abandon a bike on a path...

    And it wouldn't have happened that early, in the morning. So it had to have been abandoned, at least the day before...

    And even if kid had hurt himself and just walked home, why wouldn't someone else have come back and retrieved the bike?



  2. Hi Happy!! Sorry I missed your birthday!!
    I´m sure you enjoyed the day and the cake!!
    I cann´t write my blog as frecuently as I would like to, but I do what I can.
    I try to read the blogs I follow from time to time and today I read your comment... thanks!!

  3. Your day and mine sound somewhat similar except I didn't get out to take a walk. I did, however, do some laundry and a lot of reading. I had a hard time getting motivated for much else today. It is so hot it seems the air conditioning has been running non-stop. I am so thankful to have it on days like this.

  4. I'm wondering who stole the bike from whom...

    Seven point two miles, but who's looking? Not you!I find that so funny. Nothing is as refreshing as a nice glass of cool Adam's Ale. It hits the spot every time.

    Weather is a bit dicey here tonight. I'm online between thunderstorms and now I hear the rumble of thunder so will get off. You'll be the first to see my new do.

  5. Hi There, Mourning Doves just tickle me.. They love to plop down somewhere and just sit... They'll jump in our bird feeder plate and 'hog' it.... ha

    I couldn't walk 7.2 miles without having water along the way, especially in this hot weather... I admire you.

    Have a good Thursday.

  6. Boy, I never find money on my walk....only beer cans and empty MacDonald's bags.

  7. Belated B-day wishes. Yum - the cake looked delicious. Can't believe your temps have suddenly soared.

  8. You're so slim -- no worries there!!!

  9. It has been so warm. Yesterday was dreadful. Supposed to be better today.

  10. Karen,
    Belated- Happy 60th Birthday Wishes. I just realized the e-card we sent had the wrong address on it.So sorry.Hope your day was great!
    Kathy & Dennis

  11. You continue to amaze me how you walk in this humidity. The heat is one thing, the humidity is a pool of sweat, of course you are thirsty! Wow, $1.19, I thought it was more, hey better than none. Love the dove!
