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 new look

It was pretty warm out there this morning when I walked.  64 degrees but there was a nice cool breeze so it was nice walking weather.   I walked around the lake and got to watch the sunrise.  The color doesn't last long and only takes seconds to change.  I take quite a lot of pictures from this spot because it is one of the best spots to see the sun rise.  It is about a quarter of the way around the lake from where I start. 
Once the sun rose there was a little bit of blue sky around but it was mostly cloudy.

It is amazing to see a heron fly low over the lake but this morning it was doubly amazing to see two of the flying together back and forth a couple of times!!  I stopped in my tracks and watched.

A few of the regulars were around but it was a pretty quiet morning.  I met a fellow walker.  She two had stopped to watch the herons and then we started talking and walked a little way together until I left on the path for home.  Her name is Pam.  I've seen her before but just to say good morning.  Always nice to meet a fellow walker. : )

Stopped on the path home to talk to walker friends Bridget and Gearmo for a little bit, and their dog Harley.  Haven't seen them for a while and we had to catch up.

So nice to be outside walking this morning and I walked 6.5 miles.
Sunrise 7:18
Sunset 6:28
As the morning wore on there was less blue sky and more clouds and then later the rain came.  Not a hard rain, just a soft drizzly kind and then later in the afternoon the rain came down in buckets.  Then later still the sun came out again.  That's Maryland weather for you.

We have only had a few people look at the old house for sale but a couple is coming back for a second look in the next day or two.  That sounds like a good sign - sure hope we get an offer!! 

I spent the morning on the computer.  As you probably noticed I've changed my blog look which takes me such a long time to do.  So many choices and I like too many things.  I still may tweak it a bit.

I have been pretty bad about doing my Body Electric exercise routine for the last month and have only done it a few times.  Today I decided to get back on track with that.  I really didn't want to do it and had to talk myself into it.  But then after I was done, it felt so good to have done it.  I have to remember that after feeling and disregard the before feeling!! : )

Hope your Monday is filled with good things. 
 Happyone : )
I'm just a simple guy,
I live from day to day.
A ray of sunshine melts my frown
and blows my blues away.
