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

Saturday, April 13, 2013


I dressed for a temperature in the 50's this morning and was surprised that it was only 39 degrees!  But the sun soon came out and warmed it up a bit so I wasn't chilly for long.
I walked part of a regular route that I walk and then took a little detour and walked down this road here.
It is marked private but they let you walk through to cross this little foot bridge which goes through to a dead end road.
I stopped on the bridge and took this picture of the little stream that it crosses.
This street I walked down was nice and colorful with the trees blooming and the forsythia now in bloom.
I walked through the school parking lot and field and then on to a path through the woods. As you can see from the picture everything is turning green.  It seems to have happened over night.  The deer in the picture is one of 14 I saw this morning.
The birds were singing and calling out to each other and with the sun shinning made for a cheerful morning. : )
There were quite a few people scattered about walking along my route.  It really was a beautiful morning.

I walked 6 miles.

Plan on hanging around home some today, going out to do some errands and maybe stop at a quilt fair near home.

Hope your Saturday is a good one filled with sunshine.
Happyone : )
Friends soon discover 
that the sweetest sense of happiness 
comes from simply being together.

  1. Beautiful pictures this morning!!

    I hope you and Ken have a great weekend.

  2. Looks like another lovely walk. Glad you are feeling well and eating lots of good things. Have a great Saturday!

  3. Wow! That grass really greened up fast. It gives me hope. I had to take a closer look at the deer in the thicket ...wonderful photo. Very glad that you are feeling normal again. I don't think any of us would go wrong to add extra fruit, vegetables, and water to our diets.

  4. What a wonderful way for you to begin the day! Lovely pictures!

  5. 14 deer? Wow, that's a lot in one morning. The blooming of the forsythia always adds such a cheerful note to the winter weary landscape.
    I just noticed the little ladybug on your sidebar. What a perfect quote you added to it.
    So glad to hear that you are feeling good once again.

  6. Thanks for taking us through your walk this morning. It was beautiful. And the animals just love you. All those deer and birds.I love hearing the birds chirping in the morning. It's as if they're telling us to wake up and enjoy the day! mj

  7. Spring? no way
    I thought someone kidnapped her
    trying to figure out the ransome
    Your walks are always so pretty
    ....and I can just hear the birds singing....oh I love that early in the morning

  8. That looks like a nice walk. I'm so glad that you are up and about, and enjoying life again. Art

    PS: spring came here virtually overnight, too.

  9. Good Morning...glad you are your old self again....I hope your day is wonderful! xoxo Pam
