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

Another morning like yesterday for walking.  Lots of sunshine, 66 degrees, and that lovely cool breeze.  I just wandered around this morning taking no special route.  Walked along streets, some paths, through a couple parking lots and through some neighborhoods.

Not many people about.  Only a few walking dogs and no one along the paths.  I guess everyone was over at the lake this morning.

I spotted a couple of rabbits munching away on some grass.  Counted six deer.  One of which you can barely see just beyond this foot bridge.  Two more followed him across the path.
As always I enjoyed my morning walk.  It's just great being able to start my day this way.
I found two lucky pennies.
Steps for this walk was 13,659 which was 6.7 miles.
Well, the association meeting last night was not fun but the good news is that the clothes line stays.  Of course even if they told me I couldn't have one I would still have continued to hang my clothes outside.  But now I shouldn't have any more trouble about it (I hope).  There's not much they can do when you have the law on your side.  There is still one woman on the board who just does not want clothes lines.  She kept giving us dirty looks all through the meeting and she is the one who has been turning in the complaints.   I just don't get what bothers her so much, but I'm not going to let her bother me.  I can have my clothes line and that is all that matters and that makes me happy. 

I had to rip out the blue place mat I started knitting again.  This time due to a mistake that I couldn't fix but I hadn't done very much on it.  I've restarted again and this time so far so good. : )

I've ironed some of Ken's work shirts today.  So nice and convenient being able to keep the ironing board set up. 

I've been meaning to order some stuff from The Company Store that has been on sale and just got around to doing it today.  Good thing too because this is the last day for the sale.

That's my day so far.
Hope this day finds you wearing a smile.
I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things....
I play with leaves.
I skip down the street
and run against the wind.

  1. Hooray for the logical outcome, of that ding-dang Association meeting.

    One woman hu? ONE woman who is the instigator. I still say, it's more than just the clothes line. -chuckle-

    Mmmmm, why didn't you ask her, what bothers her so much, about you drying clothes outside??????

  2. As you say, the law is on your side. I know from your having told us that this is not something you stick in their noses by leaving your clothes or the line up beyond the time that they are dry. Talk about silliness. Glad that it worked out. I'd keep smiling at her. Ha!

  3. I missed your post yesterday, but am glad to hear things turned out in favor of hanging to clothes on the line.
    Our weather has been less humid today and yesterday. We are heading in to a heatwave by the weekend so I'm enjoying it while I can.

  4. I happy to hear things turned out good for you. What is with that women anyway. Your walk sounds very relaxing, I love seeing the bunnies. Have a great day.

  5. So glad the clothes line issue is under control.

  6. Hooray for getting to keep hanging the clothes out and also for walking an extra half mile today!

  7. Good for you--standing up for yourself... Afterall, it is the LAW... The woman can gripe til the cows come home!!!! People will do that!!! Hope you can ignore her. AND--Hope she doesn't 'egg' your house!!!! ha ha


  8. as always you left a smile on my face...happy for you...I'd love to see the blue place mat you are knitting! the foot bridge photo is lovely :-)

  9. Good thing that law is in existence. Using less electricity is always a good thing.

  10. What time do you usually set off on your walk? So pleased to hear you are able to hang your washing outside to dry - I love to get my clothes out for a blow.
