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

Retired another pair of walking shoes

Another morning with the temperature at 60 degrees, but no fog, just cloudy.  I walked around the lake and kept to the path.  Pretty quite out there this morning.  The geese are not in groups anymore but just lots of pairs.  I'm sure we will be seeing baby geese before too long.  Lots of birds around all making their pretty morning sounds.
Only a few people did I see by the lake.
I noticed this azalea bush is in bloom now.  It's the only one I've seen blooming.
It was time to retire my latest walking shoes and get out the next new pair.  I usually buy two at a time so had this pair in the closet.  First time walking in them today and my feet felt great so these are another good pair!!   I walked 6.5 miles.

Those rolls from yesterday came out good and made great sandwiches for supper last night.  Ken didn't get home till  8:00 and I waited for him to eat so we were really hungry.  Maybe that's why the sandwiches tasted so good. : )

I had to do a little baking today because the last three bananas sitting on the counter turned into some ugly looking brown things so I turned them into some delicious Banana Bread.

I've been meaning to transplant a couple of house plants I bought a while ago into bigger pots and I finally got around to doing that this afternoon.  Hope they survive the bigger pots.

Still have a few chores to do before I can sit down and read some more so off I go.
Hope your day is filled with sunshine even if it is a cloudy day.
Clouds or no clouds,
life is grand.
Be grateful for all the
varieties of weather in your life.


  1. You need to invest in stock for walking shoes. I know that you feel that they have to be comfortable right from the start. Do you have any other suggestions? I'm still wearing the pair I was wearing way back when we met a few years ago. That can't be good.

  2. The bread rolls look delicious. I am so careful when buying footwear now as I have had so many uncomfortable pairs in the past! We have seen a number of azalea bushes in full bloom on our walks - they have such pretty coloured flowers.

  3. I have azaleas in the same town; why aren't they blooming? Probably, because I don't care for them the way I should.
    The rolls look delicious.
    I guess your leg is better since you're still walking, in new shoes no less!

  4. what a beautiful azalea flower :)

  5. New shoes and homemade bread. What a great combination.

  6. Hooray that the new walking shoes felt great, first wearing!

    Now it's time to go out and get 2 more! :-)

  7. To add to Vee's comment, please yes... Give any/all advice/info/etc., on the topic of what-to-walk-in. Please, please, please...

    You would do a great service to those of us, who want to walk, comfortably.

    Please and thank you.

    I know. What is great for you, may not be so, for all of us. But still, you have more experience than any of us do. :-)

  8. Good shoes are so expensive I almost feel like I should talk to a banker when buying them. I like New Balance too. I do a combo running and walking and always get a pair of running shoes, which work just fine for fast walking. I always try to get a "couple" extra miles from them and end up keeping them too long.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
