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 nice walk

for me again around the lake this morning.  A warm 60 degrees outside with the sun shining.  The light breeze was just perfect for this warmer temperature.  No more of those dark mornings for a while.  The sun is already up by the time I leave now though on the down side I don't get to see those beautiful sunrises.  Once in a while I'll have to leave early. 
It was mowing day around the lake and even though it was noisy at times with all the mowers going I like the smell of freshly mowed grass. 
Less people out this morning but still a good amount.  Saw a few of my walker friends and they said it was good to see me back again.  They all know EXACTLY how I felt not walking!!
I saw three deer.  This time by the lake.  The white egret was at the edge of the water and as I tried to walk down closer for a picture he got scared off and flew away.  Then I happened to look down in the water and I saw a snapping turtle swimming around.
Then a bit further along I saw the heron also at the edge of the water.  He was hunkered down hiding, maybe sleeping because I got close enough to take his picture.
There were a few fishermen along the shoreline but no boats out on the lake today.
It was such a pretty morning for walking.
I walked 6 miles. : )
Knitting day has arrived so off I went to the mill for a morning of knitting.  I made a few weave-it squares.  There were 14 of us there.  A lot of people left early and me, Sue, and Joan were the last to leave.

As usual on the way home I made a stop at the library to drop off a book and saw one of my knitting friends there.  I didn't get any more books out.  Had a couple in my hand but put them back.  I still have a few at home I'm reading and I am number 2 on a book I have on hold, so I certainly don't need anymore right now.

I had one more load of laundry to get done and since it is sunny and breezy was able to get that last load hung out to dry.  Now I'm done - at least for now!  I use Tide laundry soap and have for years.  I bought these Tide Pods this time because I liked the idea of just throwing one in the machine without having to measure anything.
I think they are so cool. There is the little pod in the washing machine.  It just dissolves in the water.  No measuring no mess.
The rest of the afternoon I'll just be at home trying to get a little work done.
Hope all is well and you have found some happiness in your day.
Good fortune shies away from gloom.
Keep your spirits up.
Good things will come to you
and you will come to good things.
