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

Another sunny warm day

The other day we were driving down the road and I saw a little cemetery and thought that it would be a nice place to walk to one morning.  It is about three miles from home.  I walked out that way today and got within a block of it going on all side streets and paths to avoid traffic.  The cemetery is on a pretty busy road right on a curve and there are no sidewalks.  With work traffic zooming past I decided it wasn't a good road to be walking on.  At least not on a work day.  I will walk there on a Saturday morning when there won't be any traffic. 
So today I didn't walk on any of my mapped out routes.  It was a bit of an adventure trying to get the cemetery in a round-a-bout way.  I walked 6.7 miles.
So many daffodils in so many yards and they all looked so pretty.  One of the neighborhoods I walked in had a lot of Magnolia trees and they were all in bloom.
Yesterday morning I didn't see any forsythia blooming but this morning it seemed it was every where I looked.  It is so pretty and every year I wish it bloomed longer than it does.
The weather was just perfect for walking this morning and it was great being outside and watching another new day came to life. 
After supper last night we went to the library and I got three books and put two more on hold.  I haven't gone to the library for a while and it was so good to get back there. 

Such a pretty sunny day out and I went out and did a few errands.  One stop I made was at Ross.  I looked for jeans, tops and dresses and didn't find anything.  I usually have great luck there but today the store looked picked over and there wasn't anything even worth trying on.  That store is like that though, you never know.  No luck today but next time I'll probably find lots of stuff.  There was nothing I NEEDED so I wasn't bothered in the least.

 Another nice day for being out on the deck.  I had lunch out there and plan on going back out in just a bit.

Hope you are having a nice sunny day too.

  1. The forsythia bush is beautiful. What a great shot!

  2. I agree. Forsythia doesn't bloom long enough.

    Your walk to the cemetery sounds like fun if it hadn't been for the traffic. Did you walk around in the cemetery, too.?

    Though it wasn't our warmest, day, I have been outside a bit trying to clean up where I can. Pretty wet and muddy yet, though.

  3. Your walk was an adventure, this morning. :-) But glad you decided to come back, when it's less dangerous, to get to that cemetery.

    Since you said it is a little one, is it a little old one? Those are always so interesting...

    "Love and a cottage" is an age-old dream.

  4. you just added a smile to my day with such a beautiful blooming Forsythia....

  5. Forsythia is such a lovely shrub. Yellow is a beautiful spring colour I promised myself I would buy a yellow top if I can find one I like. A shame you had no success at clothes shopping - it was not meant to be this time round - maybe on your next visit you will find just what you are looking for.
