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

Chicks and ducks

I was out and walking at 6:45 this morning.  It was 40 degrees and I watched the sun come up again.

I was yearning for a look at my lake so I headed over that way.  
I walked the path to the lake and the walked along the lake by the dam and then turned around and headed back home.
So nice to see my lake once again. : )  I turned around here where I took the picture.  Can you spot the morning moon?
Nice to see and hear all the geese again and I saw a heron flying overhead with nesting material in its beak.  Guess there will be little ones coming along. : )

Saw some familiar faces by the lake and just felt so nice to be part of the morning walkers once again.
I increased by walk by a little bit again and today walked 3.8 miles.
Sunrise 6:56
Sunset 7:29
This morning we headed out in the truck and went to The Tractor Supply store which is about an hour away and a nice ride.  We enjoy just walking around and looking at all the neat stuff.  There is so much stuff I'd like to buy, but don't really need any of it. : )
I could find many uses for things up at Happy Trails!!
Today they had some baby chicks and ducks in the middle of the store for sale.  I so wanted to buy some, they were so cute.  Maybe someday up at Happy Trails we could raise chickens!! : )

While we we were out we stopped for a bit to eat before coming back home.  We had roast beef sandwiches and salads.

Home this afternoon doing this and that around the house. 

The movie Lincoln came in the mail today from Netflix so we will be watching that tonight.  I heard that it was really good and we are looking forward to seeing it.  It is two and a half hours long so maybe we won't see it all tonight.

My snack tonight will be cottage cheese with raisins which I have often for lunch.

Hope your day has been sunny and bright.
Happyone : )
And He departed from our sight
that we might return to our heart,
and there find Him.
For He departed,
and behold, 
He is here.
~St Augustine

Diane - I've just been eating lots fruits and vegetables, grains high in fiber and drinking a good amount of water.  I go to the doctors on Wednesday and will get some of my questions answered then.  I've been doing some reading and found out that half of the researchers say to avoid nuts and seeds and the other half say it isn't necessary. 


  1. Hi Karen, Glad you are walking again --but taking it easy.

    Glad you enjoyed your lunch and the stop off at the Tractor Supply...

    Enjoy your movie tonight...

    Happy Easter.

  2. I love the sunrise pictures. They are so beautiful! We saw "Lincoln" when it was in the theater and thought it was a very good movie. Enjoy it and enjoy the Easter weekend. So glad to know that you are recovering and getting your stamina back.

  3. Oh how good to get back to the lake again. Little ducks and chicks are so cute. Didn't know that they sold them this way still. At least they aren't dyed for Easter anymore!

  4. Oh yes, I see the morning moon!!!

    Hooray for seeing the lake again!

    And for seeing familiar faces again.


  5. I can hear the happiness in your writing of being on the lake again, even if it just for short steps and little time. Great shot of the moon! You're getting there day by day, great recovery, doing great-keep going, you are awesome!

  6. I use Spic and Span to clean my bathroom. It comes in a spray bottle and it's just around 1.00 for a 22 oz bottle. A bargain in my opinion!
