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

A sunny day

A very mild 50 degrees this morning.  When I first started walking there was some patchy fog around but the sun soon chased it away.  The stream was high and muddy after all the rain from yesterday.  Just as I was getting to the lake a heron flew over my head going to the lake.  I also saw a fox.  When I see a fox it is usually down one of the paths.  I think this is the first time I saw one by the lake.  He was fat and fluffy looking.
All the usual geese were around.  Here are some of them leaving the area off in the distance.
Work continues on the lake path so I just keep out of the way and walk other ways by the lake.  Not many people out again but the people I saw were regulars.
I didn't have quite my six miles in by the time I reached home so I walked around my townhouse complex for a bit.  Went behind the last row of houses to take a look at our drainage pond.  I don't go back there very often and was surprised to see water in it with our own geese making themselves right at home. 
By the time I walked to my house I had enough miles in for this morning and had walked 6.2 miles.
Sunrise 6:40
Sunset 6:00
The day has been sunny and in the upper 60's though a breeze has been kicking up at times.  Made the clothes whip around the line a few times and I had to keep going out to untangle them.  But they dried nice and fast and you sure can't beat that clean fresh smell!

I've been home all day cleaning.  Not much to write about but I feel real good to have gotten quite a bit done.  Taking a bit of a break now to post and then read blogs before I try to get a few more things done.  A little reading before Ken comes home from work and what I don't get done today, I'll finish tomorrow.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Take a smile with you when you go out.
Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn.


  1. It is snowing like crazy and cold. I can feel the chill and am reluctant to turn up the heat since "they" say it will be much colder all next week. How ironic to have winter show up in the final weeks when we are so spoiled.

    That's quite a little pond behind your homes...I hope those geese eat all the mosquitoes that show up.

    It's always lovely to have a clean home to welcome your beloved to. You didn't tell us what's for supper! We're having BLTs with cheese. Exciting, eh?

  2. Sounds like a nice walk this morning.
    It always feels so nice to accomplish a lot in the cleaning department. I just wish it would last longer :).

  3. How different, is our weather!!! But then, we aren't really *next to* each other. You being really south of me, too. Your weather sounds like spring has sprung.

    Ahhhhh, you have your own ducks, at *your* pond. :-)

    It still looks like Narnia here. :-)

  4. I always like sharing your walks with you, Karen. The fox is a real bonus! Art

  7. I love to see and hear the geese flying - we get quite a number flying overhead as they fly inland to graze then fly back to the Solway coast in the evening. We have Canadian geese and Barnacle geese. What a lovely view over the drainage pond the residents have.
