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.

There isn't a title today

Warm and muggy this morning with a slight breeze when i went for my walk.  The temperature was a warm 76 degrees.  It was cloudy and it wasn't long before it started raining too.  The rain only lasted for about a mile or so and it actually felt nice and cool so i didn't bother coming home early.  I got hot again once the rain stopped. 
No regular route, just walked wherever.  A few people were walking along the sidewalks but didn't see anyone at all along the paths I walked.  I spotted three deer though.  A mom with two little ones and then a little one on its own on another path.
Last week when i walked past the elementary school workers were putting together some playground equipment and parts were scattered all over the place.  I passed by there again today and it is all put together now just waiting for Monday when school starts.  The kids should have fun playing on that colorful thing!! : )
Enjoyed my walk as usual and today I walked 6 miles.

************************************************
This morning while I was walking Ken left to go over to the old house and to make sure nothing was in the yard or on the porch that could get blown away when Irene comes along later today and into tonight.  I think around where i live we will just get lots of rain and some wind.
Ken will probably be home again by lunch time and then we will go out and do a few errands.
Then it will be home for the rest of the day.
I plan to get started on that stack of books i brought home from the library yesterday.

Enjoy your Saturday.
I pray that all of you who have to deal with Irene stay safe!!
Happyone : )
Manners are a sensitive awareness
of the feelings of others.
If you have that awareness,
you have good manners,
no matter what fork you use.

  2. I hope you don't have problems from Irene. I can't believe so many are having to evacuate. What a nightmare that is. We've had to do that a few times and it's awful!
    Have a good weekend,

  3. I agree. I think we will have a ton of rain and some wind. So far it has been nothing more than any other rain storm, but they say the "best" is yet to come.

    Everyone stay dry and safe.

  4. I do hope that Irene won't cause any problems for you. In our part of NC we didn't even get rain, just a little bit of breeze.
    Enjoy your reading time.
