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 sunny day

A mild 40 degrees this morning when I walked and so nice to see the sun rise and have the sun stay out and not hide behind the clouds.

I walked around the lake.  On the way to the lake along the path behind the church I heard some chattering up in a tree.  Looked up and saw three young raccoons sitting in a crook of a tree.  That is a first for me!  Too dark to get a good picture.
Stopped on the red foot bridge to take this picture.
A few people here and there around the lake.  I stopped for a little chat with Barb.

Found a dime.
Steps for my walk today were 12,436.
It's Tuesday which means it is knitting day with the 'girls' and I left soon after breakfast.  I brought the latest finished baby blanket for show and tell. : )  Then started on the next one.  Only got three squares done but it is a start.  Didn't do a head count today but there must have been about 14 of us there.

I left right at 12 to pick up my friend Mary Jo and we went out for lunch at the Olive Garden.   We always enjoy our lunches together.  Talking at church on Sunday's is just not enough time for us. : )

Today the sun has been shining all day long and it just puts everyone in a happy mood.

Hope you have sunshine where you are too.
Happyone: )
I saw this on a church sign.

SusieCraft -  I think Stoners would be a very good place to bring your glassware.  I have  bought many pieces there myself. : )


  1. Thanks Karen, I just posted on Ken's blog too! We may go to the next one to take a look. Will be at knitting again but am taking an 8 week class now at Knitting Boutique so have a Tuesday conflict.

  2. Today, you have sunshine and we have over-cast skies.

    Agreed, the sun shining brightly is kind-of like a pep-up-pill!!!

    Plus, the only way I can get the water colors I do, to show up with a really white background in photos, is to put them on the floor... Where afternoon sun is streaming in the Hearth Room, and take a pic there.

    At least so far... This is what works. It can't be what Susan Branch does with her art!!!! -chuckle-

  3. These posts really make me want to start my morning walks again. I do evening exercise now but I do miss the morning exercise!

  4. I'm glad you had a nice sunny day. It's cloudy and dreary here.

  5. That is a gorgeous picture! What are the little structures on the hill? Hope that you can take a photo of the raccoons...that would be fun to see. Did you have the soup and salad at OG?

  6. It sounds like you have had an excellent Tuesday!

    I actually found a nickle and two pennies on a recent outing! They were the first for 2013. Usually all I find are pennies, and not very many of them at that.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
