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

Saturday, January 7, 2012


I got started about 20 minutes later on my walk this morning than usual.  Just slept in a few extra minutes.  It was 30 degrees this morning but I knew it would be warming up again, so didn't wear my outer layer.  I was a little chilly when I first stepped out the door but quickly warmed up once I got started walking.  By the time I got home the temperature was already up to 43!!
I walked my route which goes past the school and over to Gray Rock Rd and then through the path back towards home.  I saw a few deer but this one turned around to take a look at me so I took her picture.
A very quiet Saturday morning.  I only saw two others out today.  My walking friend from where I used to live called me this morning and we walked and talked.  She is out of town a lot and when she gets back calls me and we catch up our early morning walks.
I walked 6.3 miles.
Sunrise 7:27
sunrise has been the same for quite a few days now
Sunset 5:00
Ken was out this morning and I had plenty I could be doing around the house.  I was just going to read for a few minutes before I got started and ending up reading for a lot longer than that.  I'm reading A Walk West by Peter Jenkins, the second of his walking books.

After lunch we went out for a bit and now we're back home.  Realized we forgot to stop and get ice cream so we will probably go out later again to pick up some.  It's been a while since we had ice cream for our snack and I miss it.

Hope you're enjoying your Saturday.
A smile from me to you.

  1. Oh I like the pink! It matches these sunrises so well. I'd say that the deer really did pose for you. What a sweet glance back. Makes me wonder how many deer are around me and I am unaware. You are the deer whisperer so you know!

  2. Sounds like a pleasant day, although a bit of ice cream might make it even more pleasant :)

  3. Don't think I ever read a "walking" book!!!
