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

This morning the temperature was 38 degrees as i started walking.  No breeze at all again and when the sun came up and stayed out.  I didn't walk on any of my mapped out routes but just walked wherever i felt like it.  I walked down roads
and down paths.
I saw four people along the paths and all were running.  Walking along the roads i saw three deer.  I watched them walk across the street from one front yard to another.  I smiled because you would think i'd see the deer in the woods and the people along the street!
One thing i like about walking in the fall when the leaves are on the ground is walking through them.  I like the sound it makes and it always makes me happy. : )
Another great walk and today i walked 6.4 miles.
I found a dime today too!

Giving Thanks Day Number 3
Today is my husband Kens' birthday
and i am so thankful to have him
beside me as we go through life together.
He is my best friend.
The other day when i was driving around trying to find the little something i wanted to get Ken for his birthday was a bamboo plant that he could take to work.  Here it is.
Ken has the day off from work today and i already gave him his plant and card this morning.  For breakfast we had the cheesecake!!  It was soooo good!!
I'm posting early today because i don't know if i'll get a chance later on.  I'll be spending the day with Ken.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Have a great day and don't forget to take a smile with you.
Happyone : )
Be thankful for what you have;
you'll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don't have,
you will never, ever have enough.
~ Oprah Winfrey


  1. I was right. :-) Today IS Ken's Birthday. Happy Birthday again.

    Hope you both enjoy the day.

    Gentle hugs,
    "It is a joy to walk in the bare woods. The moonlight is not broken by the heavy leaves. The leaves are down, and touching the soaked earth, Giving off the odors that partridges love."
    ~ Robert Bly, Solitude Late at Night in the Woods

  2. Great walk, lovely plant, and cheesecake for breakfast! It doesn't get better than that! Have a good day together!

  3. Today certainly is your day--a beautiful walk, a day with the hubs, and a dime. Who could ask for anything more!

  4. Happy Birthday to your husband Ken, I like the gift, have been wanting to get me one.
    As always i enjoy walking with you. A change in walking paths is always nice.
    Enjoy your evening.
