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

Dry feet

After two days of rainy morning walks it was nice not to have wet feet and to see the sun shining.
It was 63 degrees and a bit on the humid side.  I walked over to the lake and walked the lower path.  Stayed off the detour trail because it would have been wet and muddy after all the rain.  As I walked, the clouds started coming around and it was cloudy and felt like rain by the time I got back home.
There were the usual amount of people around the lake and I saw quite a few people that I knew.

The deer were well hidden and I didn't see a one of them.  Lots of rabbits around today and the usual birds.  Stopped to watch the heron again when he was standing on the rocks.  I walked down by him and got really close before he flew off.  I could almost reach out and touch him!!
I saw this family of geese alone in the grass down by the water and they all went in the water when I got too near.  This is another family with a one older baby and two smaller ones.
The white egret was around today too.
Being out early in the morning and walking is one of life's little pleasures that makes me appreciate each day.  I can't help but say a Thank You to God for creating such a beautiful world for us.  Makes me wonder, if you don't believe in God, who do you say thank you to?
I walked 6 miles.
I'm home today with nothing on my agenda.  Just the usual house stuff to do.  Who knows what the day will bring but I will find happiness in my day. : )
Hope you find your happiness too.
Have a great day!
You can't buy happiness,
but you can buy ice cream.
And that's kind of the same thing.
: )


  1. Love your quote today - ice cream does have a way of making everything better! Nice picture of the geese.

  2. I say thank you to God each day for just letting live long enough to see it.

    The picture of the geese is awesome!

  3. Please add 'me' between the words letting and live. :-)

  4. Two more fantastic photos. The family of geese is amazing.

  5. Love your quote as well as the geese!
    Laundry is my usual Wednesday "house stuff." Not too exciting, yet it is such a good feeling to have it done.:)

  6. Your first photo is just gorgeous. That would definitely be a beautiful start to the day.

  7. ...right or peanut butter cups, whichever's on sale.

    Glad that you walked in the sunshine today. We're having showers and, mercifully, they keep cooling the temps down with each one. The air is really nice now.

  8. Having dry feet is a good thing!!

    The geese and goslings are soooo very cute! I've been seeing a lot of herons lately -- they roost not far from our house. That's always a treat. I haven't heard our local owls, though, for quite a while. I'm worried...

  9. What lovely photos - I agree - we have so much to be thankful for.


Hello my friend.
