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

An afternoon walk

I over slept this morning which left no time for a walk before Sunday school and church. 
The rare times I miss my morning walk I say to myself that I'll just walk later in the day but somehow never get around to it.  But today I did go for that afternoon walk.  Ken was washing the truck so I thought that would be a good time to go.
It was a beautiful fall day - sunny with a breeze that made the leaves fall down all around me.  I love the sound of the rustling leaves as I walk through them.
I walked along a few of the paths.  Don't know how far I walked because I forgot to look at my pedometer before I left, but I probably walked about five miles.
Here are some of the pictures I took along the way.

I saw quite a lot of people out along the paths enjoying this pretty day.  A father and his two little boys were some of the people I came across.  The dad was walking along with his twin boys who were riding the tiniest two wheelers I've ever seen.  I mentioned how tiny the bikes were and also how young the boys were for riding a two wheeler.  Dad told me they were just 3 1/2 years old.  One had a yellow bike and the other a red one with matching helmets.  It was the cutest thing to see. : )  I would have loved to take a picture but didn't ask.

Though it was nice to be out walking this afternoon it is still not the same as my morning walk.  There is just something about walking in the morning for me.
I'm already looking forward to walking around the lake in the morning.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Peace be to you, fear not.
Genesis 43:23


  1. I am glad you got your walk in even though it was in the afternoon. Great pictures.

  2. I can tell by your pictures that you had a beautiful fall day for walking. You needed that extra rest this morning.:)

  3. It sounds like a perfect fall day for walking. Those two little boys must have been a cute sight.
    We took a walk today too, but probably only went 2 miles or so.

  4. I do love walking in the fall when it is cool and lovely. Sounds like you had a nice day. Enjoy the week ahead.

  5. I can imagine how cute the twin boys must have looked riding their bikes...loved viewing shots from your walk as always..blessed day :-)

  6. Morning is best, for you.

    But still, it was kinda' nice to see a different sun-lit view, for a change. Day-sun is different from early-early-morning sun. :-)
