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

Happy walking again : )

After not walking for two mornings in a row! it was so good to be out there walking again today.  I walked my connect the path route with a couple of detours along the way.  It was warm and sunny and though a little humid there was a bit of a breeze so when I started sweating and felt the breeze it was cooling. 
There were people scattered along the paths and street, not a lot but enough to say good morning to without having to say it too often.
Walking down this path there were about eight deer standing there and by the time I got my camera out this was what was left of them running away.
 Isn't this a most unusual spider web?  I've never one like it before.  There were three of them and they were about eight across.   They looked like over sized CDs hanging in mid air.
A couple of foot bridges I walked over.  
This one I walk over often.
This is a new one I discovered walking down another road.  It is on another short path that leads to the back of the school.  It comes out at the edge of a field. 
It was nice to be out in the woods, hearing the birds singing, looking at all that is around me and just enjoying walking there once again.  I really missed walking the past two days.
Today's walk was just a tad farther than usual - seven miles.
Sunrise 5:49
Sunset 8:36
It feels like a Monday to me today because Ken has been off the last two days.  Especially now because he is out and about this morning, and I've just hung a load of clothes out on the line.  That is all the work I'm going to be doing though.
I'd like to do some reading and knitting, maybe make a few more weave-its.  I also have some blog reading catching up to do.
At some point in the day I'll meet up with Ken and who knows what we will end up doing.

Enjoy your Saturday!
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )
Look not at the days gone by with a forlorn heart.
They were simply the dots we can now connect with our present,
to help us draw the outline of a beautiful tomorrow.

  1. WOW, spider webs look more like *crop circles*! Aliens, about????????????????????????????? :-)

    I'm reading and running, so as to rest my back, by not staying on the Net, for long.


  2. That spider web is most unusual and very interesting.

    Are you going to be walking 7 miles daily until you catch up to the 12 miles you missed?

    Love that quote!

  3. When I saw the spider webs, at first glance I thought it was an old tire, and you were going to comment on the carelessness of the people who left it. Then you said it was a spider web and I looked more closely

    You are right .... very unusual.

    I have been off my walking again. Just too many interruptions to my days. Got to find a way to make this work.

  4. You have some great walking paths in your area, Karen... WE have a few --but ours are very HILLY.... (Talk about sweating!)

    Hope you two have a great weekend.

  5. It's an interesting spiderweb, maybe it isn't finished yet?

  6. You've given me another first, never seen a web like that before.

  7. Whoa!! I've NEVER seen spider webs like those!! I can just imagine the size of the spider that made them!

  8. Those Orb Weaver spider webs are amazing!

  9. Oh, I want to walk that path so bad! Beautiful and amazing spider web. Art
