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 fine and dandy day.

49 degrees this morning and the air was crisp cool and sunny.  These kind of mornings are just perfect and I hope they just continue on and on. : )

I walked my circle route which is mainly on the streets and just walk down one path.  A few runners were out and that was about it except for the kids waiting at school bus stops.  Oh, and I did see one girl riding her bike to school.

Birds were the only wildlife I saw.

My friend Lin is in town and called while I was walking.  She walks too and so we talked and walked for a couple of miles. : )
Petey and John were out for their morning walk as well, and I stopped along the path for a little chat with them too.

I got near home and didn't feel like ending my walk just yet so I walked around my neighborhood for a little bit and ended up walking 7.2 miles.
What a glorious morning and a great start to my day. : )
Sunrise 6:47
 Sunset 7:18
Have to take advantage of these great days so got some more laundry done and hung up on the line.  I'm washing my curtains and they smell so nice after drying outside!!

I found sometime to wash my car today and now she is sparkly clean again.
It was garbage day and the big green garbage can was sitting out there empty and not smelling so good, so I gave the garbage can a wash too.  I just poured some car wash soap in the can, put the full force of the hose on and swished it about. 
I also swept the garage out while both cars were out of the garage.  Such a pretty day outside I didn't feel like going back inside to iron and clean the bathroom sinks but I eventually did.

We thought it was a good night to go out for pizza since we had to do a few errands anyway one of which was to buy batteries.  Both my mouse and keyboard needed new batteries.  I was getting the critical low warning.  I never replace them at the first warning because I can go days on them yet.

I'm so looking forward to my ice cream later.  A new Edy's flavor for me called Double Fudge Brownie. 

We've been watching the first season of Once Upon a Time and really like it.  Disc two came in the mail today so we will be watching that later too.  A nice relaxing evening.

Hope you had a good day and it was filled with sunshine.
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Dot, I think you must be seeing the mist over the water.


  1. I love love love love this weather. I just wish I didn't have to work on days like this. But I am joyful to even be out in it for short times and short walks. TGI (almost) F! Art

  2. You have certainly earned your ice cream today. That flavor does sound enticing.
    I just took the recycling bin out and noticed the beautiful shades of pink in the sky tonight. I, too, am loving this weather.

  3. I didn't want to go inside today either. Biked many miles, and walked. I've watched Once Upon a Time since the beginning. I love it, and it's visually beautiful.

    Peach pie and vanilla ice cream for me :)

  4. I am loving the cooler weather too and I would love a dis of that scrumptious ice cream!

  5. Wonder where we could live that would mean these kinds of days all the time? It was beautiful here as well so I painted the side deck while John worked on the garage. These are the perfect kind of days. I didn't do any housework beyond what had to be done and planned to spend the evening in my sewing room. Instead I'm deleting photos from Picasa and visiting blogs.

  6. This weather is earned. We earned it through all those terrible hot days this summer.

  7. Only 49 degrees...that sounds like winter here! No really that would feel wonderful about now...I am tired of the Arizona heat! Sounds like you had a very nice day and got a lot done! You have inspired me to get out and start walking again now that our weather is a little cooler. I am not putting in as many miles as you, but I am enjoying it! Have a great Friday.

  8. Oh I am so glad you are enjoying the 1st Season of "Once Upon A Time"!!!! I hope you continue to enjoy it!!!!


  9. I pulled my glasses off and got real close to the monitor and I finally figured out that I'm looking at the shore line on the other side of the lake. Oh my! lol
