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

Perfect Weather

I walked around the lake again this morning and the topic of the morning was the perfect walking weather.  My thermometer isn't working today but the radio said it was 49 degrees.  It was nice and cool and sunny with that crisp feel to it.  I wore my shorts, tights, a long sleeve tee shirt and a sweat shirt and of course a ball cap.  I like wearing my sweat shirt because it has pockets.  One for my camera and one for my phone and my Striiv is clipped to my shorts.  I'm still loving my Striiv and for those of you who have them, I've just purchased Turtle Island and I'm working on growing two grandmother trees to open it up. I've already grown one of them. : )
There was a mist over the water this morning, which means I guess that the water is warmer than the air.  Anyway I liked the look of it.
I counted six deer out around the lake and got a picture of one of them just as he crossed over the path.
Lots of rabbits out again and I saw the white egret perched at the tippy top of a tree.
The usual amount of people out this morning.
The weather made my morning walk extra special.
I walked 6.4 miles.
Someone lost a lucky penny and I found it. : )
Sunrise 6:46
Sunset 7:22
Got a load of laundry hung out on the line, had a piece of toast for breakfast and then headed out to the mill for a morning of knitting.  Ten of us there today and I made a few weave-it squares.

I parked in the driveway of our old house and walked there because after knitting I did a bit more cleaning of the old house.  The inside is nearly done.  I just have to wipe down a couple more kitchen cabinets and dust the wall lined bookcases.  Then we just have to tidy up the yard and it should be ready for sale.  Probably next week sometime.   Didn't take any pictures of the house today but will next time I go over there.

I didn't get home until two so had a late lunch and then got some things done around the house.

After supper we went out to do a few errands.  Ken didn't get to order the siding for the tractor barn yesterday so we did that today.  Also stopped at Safeway and restocked our ice cream supply.  Later I'm going to have some chocolate chip mint.  I've been having plan old chocolate and vanilla for a while now.

The weather was just beautiful all day long.
Hope your day was a happy one.
Happiness is when 
what you think, what you say, and what you do 
are in harmony.

  1. I am very curious now, what is a striiv? That ice cream sounds so good. Have a good evening.

  2. We must be sitting under the same weather system. It certainly was a beautiful day. It must be good to get so much closer to putting the house up for sale again.

  3. I am loving the cooler days and nights.

  4. Mist, in any form, is a Joy for photographers!!!! :-)


  5. We've had lovely weather here too..... but I'm not ready for summer to leave yet :(

  6. We're having perfect weather down here too. So nice to have that humidity gone. I would like to think it is gone for good, but I don't think we could be that lucky.
    How nice it will be to be finished with your old house and be able to put it up for sale.
    Mmm ... chocolate chip mint. One of my favorites. Enjoy.
