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 cool sunny walk

It was a bit on the chilly side this morning.  Only 42 degrees and windy but after the rain and humidity everything was bright and fresh and there was lots of sunshine.  Made for great walking weather!

Started by walking over to the liquor store to look for coins and then walked one of my connect the path routes.
The fox was running up ahead of me on a path and veered off into the woods when he spotted me.  Lots of birds chattering and sounding cheery.  They too were glad to see the sun shinning.  There were rabbits along the side of the paths having breakfast, a few deer scattered about in the woods and I heard a woodpecker.

It was pretty windy but walking along the paths under the canopy of the trees protected me from all the wind.  As I walked along I could hear the wind blowing the trees about above me.  I looked up and took this picture.
Snapped a bunch of pictures walking along.  Here are some of them.

I only saw one other person out all during my walk!

I found 2 quarters and a penny.
Walked 6.2 miles.
We were walking around BJ's and I hear someone say,"Happyone."  I turned and it was Elaine, my friend, fellow knitter and blogger at My Next 20 Years of Living.  : ) 
We bought paper plates and a big box of plastic silverware so we can just throw them away when we are living in the trailer.  I won't have to wash them and it saves water.

We then went to the mall to Bass Pro and bought a camera that we can mount near the birds nest at HT and hopefully get some good pictures of the babies and the comings and goings of mother bird. 
The mall is not a good place to go on a Saturday afternoon if you don't like crowds!!  But I did get some extra steps in there. : )

So here we are at home now.  Should be boxing some things up but here I sit at the computer!  Not to worry it will all get done! : )

Enjoy your Saturday.
Happyone : )
No one is useless in this world

  1. Isn't it brrrrrisk?! John just brought home flowers and told me that they could not go outside today. It's much too cold.

    Two quarters? I've never found a quarter in my life. Perhaps I should start hanging out in the casino parking lot.

    Yes, it will all get done and right on time. The looking up picture was very nice and the deer seems pretty tame. Take lots and lots of pics of the lake!

  2. It was great fun seeing you today. I have to admit, I stood there for a few seconds before I said anything, you know, making sure it was you and not just someone who looks like you. LOL When you see someone you know in a place where you don't expect it, it is like your eyes playing tricks.

    It was fun meeting your husband as well. I would have introduced you to my husband but he had walk up way further ...

  3. We were nice and cool here today, too! I LOVE it!

    Yes, you will be able to accomplish all you have to do. Take time for yourself in the process, too.

    You really have good luck finding coins!

  4. Not cool here today - we were near 100. Walked 3 miles with Charly tonight when it was a bit cooler. I love your pictures of the lake and surrounding trails. Enjoy your Sunday tomorrow.

  5. We had a Freeze warning on Saturday morning .... Brrrrr! Hoping the weekend warms up!

  6. Love those tree shots!!!!!!! Can almost hear the wind, moving about, way up high.

    Lots of wind here on Sat. and lots of rain too. And very cool. Not a *good* weekend for the people, who make their livihood, from tourists.

  7. Nice pictures! It is always fun to see a fox. it has been a long while for me.
