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

Walking, a clean desk and squares

A cool 25 degrees this morning but there was no wind and the sun came out, for a little while anyway.  I walked the trail route that takes me behind the school.  Here's a couple of pictures I took walking along.

Didn't see anyone on the trail but along the paved paths there were a few people.   I stopped to talk to Petey and John.
I saw a few deer, some wrens, and a downy woodpecker and heard a few more woodpeckers too.
Pretty quiet out there today.
I walked 6.2 miles.
Sunrise 6:34
Sunset 6:05
I've been home today and did some more cleaning.  My computer desk was getting to be a catch all and was quite a mess.  It is right in the kitchen out in the open so I really need to keep it neat and tidy.  Now everything is either filed away, taken care of or thrown away. 

I have also made some weave-it squares today for the another baby blanket I've started making.  I've made quite a few pink squares so it will have to be for a girl. 

That's about all I've done today and now I'm off to catch up on some blog reading and then maybe make a few more squares.

Hope this Monday has been a good day for you. : )
The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields


  1. Hello There, Since I've been away from blogging for a week, I have alot of catching up to do. We had a wonderful trip to Arkansas --but it's great to visit with my blog friends. Hope things are going well with you.

    Sounds like you have had some good walks this week... Love that new hymn...

  2. I love your quote - so true!! How people manage without getting out I don't know!

  3. Cute the way they have made these paths... Is this how you plan on making paths, on your new land, maybe?

    "Seeing what is in front of one's nose requires a constant struggle."
    ~~George Orwell

  4. Good nursery rhyme. I should commit it to memory. I've done something to my back and can hardly move. My desk looks a fright, too.

  5. I walked for about an hour today and thought of you. It was so nice to be out in the fresh air, but you know all about that. I hope this is the start for me.

    Hope you have a great night.

  6. I like those six doctors! If you want practice cleaning desks, come to my office! Expect to be there for a while, though! ;^) Art

  7. I need to clean off my desk too. It is the place where everybody seems to dump things when we come in the door.
    The nursery rhyme is great ... and so true.

  8. It's such a good feeling to tackle a cleaning job - what satisfaction when you have completed it. How true - how healthy we would feel if we followed the nursery rhyme.
