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.

Another great weather day. : )

Another one of those perfect weather walking mornings.  My thermometer just needed a new battery so it's working again.  This morning it read 47 degrees.  Made my way over to the lake again and just like yesterday there was a mist over the water.
The sun came up and it was bright and sunny.  I usually walk down there on the path near the water but today went up the hill to take this picture.
I saw the white egret again on the top of the tree and then later saw number two down by the water.  Four deer were on the bunny trail path as well as all the rabbits.
Quite a few people around the lake enjoying the start of the day.
I found a lucky penny.
Walked 6.9 miles.
Sunrise 6:46
Sunset 7:20
I haven't made pancakes for breakfast in a while because we haven't been home on the weekends and I was really in the mood for one this morning so I made myself some.  Here's my pancake in the middle of a ring of strawberries.  A little syrup and I was eating a delicious breakfast. : )
I finally finished getting the dressers moved around, cleaned out and organized this morning.  A couple of loads of laundry got hung outside and now I have five of Ken's shirts to iron.  I'll get to that tomorrow.

We had a quick supper when Ken got home from work and then we headed over to the old house.  Did about an hours worth of work.  I got the book shelves cleaned and a two more windows cleaned.  Ken replaced some outlets.  One or two more times there and we will be done.  : )  Didn't take pictures again but I'll get around to it one of these times.

Now I'm off for my chocolate chip ice cream.  :)

 Hope your day was a good one and you smiled often.

  1. Wow, that's a good looking pancake!

    In the picture before the pancake what is that across the middle of the picture? I can't tell if it's a fence or what.

  2. This weather is great! I even got out and walked the last couple of days.
    Keep on with the pictures. You do such a great job. MJ

  3. The pancakes and strawberries look delicious!

  4. You certainly set yourself a beautiful breakfast. Now that is a lovely thing to see.

    I like the way that you chip away at a task instead of roaring into it and wearing yourself out. Good plan!

  5. You get so much accomplished, in your day!!!!!!!!

    And as to the photos at the old house...... You can take them, when you are all done. Simple.

    But "Auntie" will pout, if you don't remember to take pics, then! ,-))))
