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

A day of nice things. : )

60 degrees this morning again only this time without the fog - a mix of sun and clouds.  The sun is just coming up now just a few minutes before I start walking.
I was going to walk my new route from last week but the path had a fence blocking the way so I couldn't go down that way.  I can see now that they are repaving the path.  So I just had a random walk this morning.  I got to the path farther down where it wasn't blocked and then went down to the water and walked along the path there.
I saw a deer family - mom, dad, and two young ones.  Another deer was farther down the way.
I also walked along a couple of streets and in and out of some courts.  I only saw one other person and he was running.
I walked 7.1 miles.
I didn't mean to walk that far but a lot of times when I take a random route I just don't realize how far I'm going.  That's why I need to have mapped out routes!
Sunrise 6:27
Sunset 7:52
Only had a little time before I had to leave for my hair appointment.  Took along the cookies for everyone and some knitting to do while waiting for the color to take.  Nice catching up with Cheryl.  She hasn't written in her blog for over 2 months so I really did have to catch up with her!!  I was happy to find that Meghan was working today so I could have my hair washed by her. : )  I've  mentioned quite a few times before that she is the best hair washer ever!!!

I was feeling good with my newly trimmed and colored hair and didn't want to go home right away so I stopped in at Walmart and walked around.  I ended up buying a new pair of jeans.

Home to a late lunch again and then just puttered around the house.

I was so happy when I checked my mailbox today to find the note cards that I ordered from Kreations by Kerri had arrived.  Kerri takes fantastic photos and I am pleased to say is a special blogger friend of mine. : )
If you have never visited Kerri's blog, stop by and take a look at all her wonderful pictures and daily quotes.   She encouraged me with her kind words about my photos and she is one of the reasons why I started a Photo Blog. 

I have such a nice husband!! : )  He told me not to make dinner this evening because he was taking me out again for dinner.  Since I was disappointed with Joe's Crab Shack yesterday he took me to Red Lobster this evening and I enjoyed a variety of shrimp cooked different ways.  Oh it was so good!! : )

Hope you took time today to enjoy a simple pleasure.
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

  2. I visited Kerri's blog but I can't find a link to her shop. Will you post it for me please?
    Thanks, Beth

  3. Red Lobster is a favorite of ours! What lovely note cards!

  4. What wonderful note cards! They just pop. I will go visit.

    I've noticed that when you're walking a new route, it's usually longer. I think you also enjoy the fresh scenery and so it's easy to zip a little further.

    Oh I need an appointment for my hair. I've been thinking so all summer long and it still hasn't happened. Perhaps I'll make the call tomorrow...

  5. So glad you like the cards!
    Mmmmmmmm Red Lobster is a favorite of mine too.

  6. So glad you had a lovely dinner at Red Lobster. How very thoughtful of Kenny. He is special! MJ

  8. Sounds like a nice day. You have a very nice husband!
    Enjoy the rest of the week!

  9. Oh how nice of Ken!!!!

    But then, you had that happy-look about you... From just having hair trimmed/colored. And he just knew you'd like to go out and... Kind of show it off. :-)))))

    And he could show off his pretty wife!

    Win, win, all round. :-)


  10. What a great day you've had and how thoughtful of your husband to take you to your favourite eating place. The note card from Kerri is very pretty I will have a look at her blog - thanks.
