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

Taking it easy today

A cloudy start to the day with a temperature of 48 degrees for my walk this morning.
Limped along down the road to the pool, then turned down the path in the picture which is behind the pool and meets up with another path and headed back home.
It was just me and the birds till my phone rang.  It was my friend Lin and we talk and walk 'together' every once in a while.    I stopped on one of the footbridges to talk and to rest my leg.   Just walked 2.8 miles.  I think I over used my leg a bit yesterday so thought I'd start out slow today.
I'm taking it a bit easy today.  I washed the sheets and even though it was cloudy I hung them up outside anyway hoping that it wouldn't rain.  Luck stayed with me because the sun made a showing every once in a while and the sheets dried in no time. 
The only other work I've done is just the basic house chores that have to be done. 

I called my friend Bernice and we talked quite a while catching up because it had been a couple of months since we last talked.  Besides it was a good way for me to stay off my leg for a while!!  Ah Bernice, she is my life long friend and the sister I never had. : )  I am blessed to have such a friend.

I hope you're having a sunny kind of day.
You can always tell a real friend:
when you've made a fool of yourself
he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.

  1. So glad that you continue to be cautious with "the leg." Talking while you're walking sounds like fun, but I don't know if I'd be able to do it so well. I am one of those who can't walk and talk at the same time.

  2. I was 9 posts behind on your blog! I feel like I just sat down with you and caught up on your life. We need to make plans to do it in person. I miss you.

  3. There is something quite wonderful about a good friend or a sister. I was blessed growing up with 4 sisters. Only my youngest sister is still with us and she is very dear to me.

  4. I'm taking a little break from my "blog break" this morning to get caught up with you.
    It sounds like you are being smart to go slowly with getting back into walking. I'm sure your leg will let you know when it is ready to resume your normal walking routine.
    In the meantime, catching up with old friends seems like a great way to pass the time.
    Happy Easter to you and Ken.

  5. Catching up with friends - a great way to pass a day. Take care of that poorly leg!
