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.

My Tuesday

A nice cool sunny morning for walking with a temperature of 52 degrees.  It was a sweatshirt morning and i didn't even get hot and have to push up my sleeves.  Love these mornings!!
I encountered quite a few people out enjoying the morning and there were a couple of boats out on the lake too.  There was a mist over the water when i first got there but that soon disappeared.
I'm coming up to a red footbridge here in this picture which i've walked over so many times i can't even count.
 And here it is as i'm about to walk across. 
The geese have all gone again but there were lots of ducks around.
All the trees that were across the path yesterday have all been cut up and moved off the path.  They sure were quick about getting the paths cleared for us.
Today i walked 6.4 miles.

Sunset 7:42

It was a nice cool sunny day for sitting outside for the Tuesday morning knitting group.  I didn't get much knitting done but did enjoy talking. : )

One of Ken's coworkers is still without power and we have a generator and since we were lucky enough not to have to use it, Ken offered her the use of ours.  So she followed him home and to get the generator.  She had gotten a letter from the power company saying they wouldn't have their power back on until Sunday, but when she got home the power was already on so she doesn't need the generator after all.

After supper we went out to do a couple of errands.  One was to stop at BJ's and get some candy, cookies, chips and other goodies.  No, not for us.  Ken sells them at work for a small profit and then donates the money to charity.  His coworkers go through this stuff FAST!!

We also stopped to get some more ice cream and yes!! this was for us.  I don't know if i mentioned what my favorite flavor right now is.  But it is Raspberry Chocolate Chip.  This stuff is GOOD.  I have a scoop of that and then one of regular chocolate and the two flavors combined are SUPER DELICIOUS.   I'll be having some of that later on tonight.

I think i'll go and read for a while now.
Hope your Tuesday was a good one.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )

  1. What a boon for her that she was restored power! Our daughter's is still out.

  2. So nice of Ken to offer the generator, even though it wasn't needed after all.
    I'm looking forward to sweatshirt weather. I don't think we're quite there yet.
    Raspberry chocolate chip sounds yummy. A great combination of flavors, in my opinion.

  3. So glad the weather is cooperating with your walks. We were blessed to not lose power too.Glad the friend got her power back on, being without power is not fun.
    Thanks for sharing your day.
