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 good hair day and friends

55 degrees and cloudy this morning with a couple drops of rain here and there.  Today I didn't take any particular route and just walked here and there along some of the paths that I haven't been on for a while.  I started out walking over to the liquor store to see if I could find any coins.  Most times I do and this time I found a dime.
I didn't see any people on the paths but I counted 9 deer during my walk. 
A quiet walk this morning, but how wonderful it is to be outside and walking!!
Here are just some pictures I took along the way.

I walked 6 miles.
It was time once again to pay a visit to Cheryl to have my hair dyed.  I was a week over due because of being away last week and my roots were really showing.  Ken calls me skunk head when that happens. : ) So on this drizzly morning with cookies in hand I left at 10:00 to remedy the skunk head condition.  My favorite shampoo girl was there to give me one of those fantastic hair washes.  I left there feeling great having a good hair day! : )  If only Cheryl and Meghan lived at my house I could have a good hair day every day!!

I left one friend and went to pick up another.  Mary Jo and I had lunch together at Red Robin.  So nice to spend time with friends.  Eating and talking, two things we do well. : )

A good hair day and spending time with two friends makes for a happy day.

Now that I'm home I don't really feel like doing any work so I think I will read for a while.

Hope this day is being good to you and that you too got to spend time with a friend.
I love the feeling of fresh air on my face
and the wind blowing through my hair.

  1. Friends and a good hair day are definitely cause for a good day. I can relate to the skunk head thing. It's a constant job to keep those roots hidden :).
    We are having a rainy day here and I was reading a new book, but then I started to nod off so I got up to throw some towels in the dryer.
    I was supposed to have lunch with a friend, but we postponed it to Friday in hopes of better weather.

  2. My 6 weekly haircut is next week - something I look forward to. I love spending time with friends relaxing, talking, eating or just having coffee and of course talking!

  3. Going to the salon for a shampoo and cut is one of my favorite things to do :)

  4. Hi Karen, Glad you can walk again.. I know how much that means to you...

    I know the feeling after visiting the hairdressers. It's wonderful, isn't it??? I am trying to let my very short hair grow out such a little --so right now, my hair is in a not-so-pretty in-between stage...

    Have a great evening.

  5. Bet feeling in the world is the hair salon, okay, well second best maybe! I can't believe all the deer you see, wow, 9 of them today. Six miles walking you're bouncing back nicely, congrats!

  6. Well, if anyone knows anything about wind blowing through his hair, it'd be Evel. Ha!

    Your description of a good shampoo and a new hairdo makes me think it's time to make a call. Yup. Soon. (I also need to call the dentist and the dermatologist and...)

    Those dimes are piling up! =D

  7. There is nothing in the world that compares to a good hair day and time spent with a good friend.

    You have a lovely scenic route for your walk.

  8. This must have been a very nice day. The place you walked looks very green and beautiful!

  9. I'm glad that I get to be your hairdresser! Everyone is glad when you come in because you're so friendly and you bring in cookies! They were so delicious!

  10. The roots-showing-thing is what tipped me over, to not dying my hair any more.

    My from-brown-to-gray phase was AWFUL. But the roots-showing-thing was worse. So I stopped.

    Finally, finally, finally it came to be pewter, and I am content with the natural gray color. :-)

    Just my story... :-)

  11. Did you post this, before the NEW BLOGGER CRAP-O-LA was installed this morning/Thurs.???

    My only words for this NEW BLOGGER CRAP-O-LA, are...
