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

Walk and home

It was a cloudy, warm, muggy morning with a temperature of 68 degrees.  I really missed my walk yesterday and was so glad to be out this morning walking once again.  As you can see by the picture it was foggy over by the lake.
Quite a few people out but not much wildlife to be seen this morning.  Just a couple of rabbits.  Strange that there were just a few geese around when usually there are so many.  Wonder where they all went.
Snapped this picture walking along the path.
By the time I got back home the sun was trying to break through the clouds and it finally did soon after.
I walked 6.3 miles.
Sunrise 6:00
Sunset 8:27
Since the sun came out I got a couple loads of laundry hung up on the line.
I'm just home today doing stuff around the house.  

A happy Monday to you. 
If you wait to do everything
until you're sure it's right,
you'll probably never do 
much of anything.

Auntie - Yes, my neighbor mentions his wife Teresa quite a lot. 

Dot - Welcome back.  : ) Thanks for the comment.

Beth Canada - I've been working on the polio vaccination now and have 15 of them.  Days of Water 20 and  Parking-spot size rain forest 4.  Just today I've opened up the second fogged island on MyLand so now I can build on that too.   Happy Stepping. : )


  1. The scenes are beautiful, especially the second one.

  2. I hope that that last bit is a foreign language because I don't understand any of it.

    Oh, I'm glad that Auntie asked that question...I had wondered. One night you could invite them over for hamburgers on the grill. That way, you'll know one way or the other. Maybe.

    John and I have laughed ourselves silly over your last post. Yup, that one's getting a lot of mileage around here.

  3. I was wondering about that last bit too, but I think it might have to do with that fun new pedometer. At least that's my guess.
    That is funny about your Sunday school teacher's little mix-up.

  4. I always love hearing about your morning walks. I love walking and my hubby and I have walked together for years...now he is away a lot with work so we only walk on the weekends. In the summer we usually get up at 4 a.m. and walk four miles every day but Sunday. This summer, since I am recovering from surgery, I haven't been able to go with him. Can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can walk more! Thanks for your daily inspiration!

  5. Thank you for your reply to my asked question. Is there really a wife??? And answering in the next day's post, is super COOL! I love it. I wish everyone would do it!

    'Cause how many bloggers have the time to go back and re-read comments in blogs, after reading them once???? Not many I betcha'.

    Mmmmm, I feel a post topic coming up! With a link, pointing to you of course. It's YOUR great idea!!!

    "I want to have a little house with sunshine on the floor,
    A chimney with a rosy hearth, and lilacs by the door;
    With windows looking East and West, And a crooked apple tree,
    And room beside the garden fence for hollyhocks to be!"

    ~Nancy Bird Turner

  6. I agree with quote...sometimes good enough has to be the way it is done. Perfect items may take too long to get to. good quote.


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