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

Something special on my walk

It was a warm 53 degrees this morning and very still but it was cloudy and dreary and felt like rain any moment. I walked around the lake this morning and was surprised to see quite a lot of people out there.  Stopped for a short chat with a few of them.
Spotted two rabbits, one munching breakfast on the side of the path and one trying to hide in the tall grass.  Saw some deer again but the highlight of this mornings walk was seeing two eagles.  I saw one of them on the top of a tree and then fly off over the lake.  The other one I saw just flying.  What beautiful birds to watch soaring through the air. 

I was about a mile or so from home when I started feeling a few rain drops and before long the drops turned into a light mist.  A block from home it was raining and when I got in the house it was really raining.  I got a little damp but was lucky to have made it home before it really started raining.
I walked 6 miles.
I had some more of those delicious strawberries from yesterday, only this morning I put them on my Cocoa Krispies.

It's been a rainy, cloudy day so I've been home doing a little cleaning, but mostly reading and have finished one of my books.  Got an email from the library telling me that a book I had on hold is now ready for pick up so I'll be going to the library later to pick that up. 

I am getting a craving for some of that Sicilian pizza again so I'm thinking we will be going out for supper tonight. : ) 

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
A happy day to you.
Once in a while I cry when I finish reading a book.
Not because it was sad,
but because I have finished it.

  1. Hi Karen, Must have been an awesome book you just finished!!!!!

    I ate some fresh strawberries this morning also... Put them and 1/2 a banana in my Greek Yogurt....YUM...

    Enjoy your pizza.

  2. Oh, wow that must have been exciting! I've never seen an eagle, except on other people's blogs. They must be amazing in person.
    I smiled when I read your quote today. I agree with Betsy that it must have been a good book.

  3. The only time I have seen an eagle was at Dollywood in a protected area. You were very fortunate to spot them.

    Strawberries, I love them.

  4. How amazing that you have so much wildlife around you - your lake is for sure a very special area. What a great breakfast. I hope you find another exciting book to read.

  5. And when we cry, upon finishing a book, it was a WONDERFUL book!!!

    What did you finish, please? Gotta' tell us if you liked it, and how much, and etc. No, we won't all like the same books. But a kind-of-review is great, I think. :-)

  6. Wow, eagles. I didn't know there were any of those around here.


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