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 walk and then up to Happy Trails

A chilly start to the morning.  Only 32 degrees but the sun was shining, there was no wind and it was great to be out walking.

I walked around the lake again and there was a mist over the water.  I take quite a lot of pictures of this scene, but it is one of my favorites.

I saw lots of bunnies but no deer today.  The birds were happily chirping away.  They seemed extra happy. : )  I saw a Baltimore Oriole.  Don't see them very often.

Quite a few people out around the lake enjoying the cool crisp weather.  I saw everything from people wearing gloves to tee shirts and shorts.

I thought these wild flowers looked pretty along the path by one of the footbridges.
Posting early today because we are heading up to Happy Trails in a little while.  Ken is loading up the truck as I type this.  We hope to get a good bit done on the shed there so we can store more things for the move. The more we can move now the better. 

Off I go to help Ken.
Hope your day is a happy one filled with sunshine.
Happyone : )

Comment replies:
Cheryl - I'd love to walk the lake with you.  How about next Monday?  
Vee -  That is exactly how I feel.  Everything is in His hands and it is working out how it is supposed to. : )  So many things have 'just happened' at the right time.
Auntie - Yes, yes I want more stuff around.  I don't like it so empty - no personality to it.  All the stuff is what makes it home. : )
Betty - I walk a mile in 15 minutes.


  1. Hope you have great weather, for your projects!!!

  2. I'm about to go for a walk myself and thought I'd check in on a few blogs before I do.
    Hope your trip to HT is fun and productive.

  3. From your post, sounds like all of nature is happy this morning in your neck of the woods. You walk at a pretty good clip if you are doing one mile in 15 minutes. I am usually doing a bit more than 2 miles in about 40-45 minutes so I probably need to pick up pace! Have a great trip to H.T.. Hope you get a lot accomplished toward your move! Have a lovely, happy day!

  4. Quite ambitious plans for the time at Happy Trails. I hope you are able to accomplish all you have planned on this trip.

  5. Missed you at knitting this morning. Don't you forget abut us.

    The morning was filled with "excitement" ... that is all I will say. You will need to catch up with me to find out the details!


  6. I hope you get a lot accomplished at Happy Trails! Stay safe.

  7. I hope it stays a little cool so working will be fun. ☺ Yay for a walk with Cheryl. I think we'd all like to take a walk with you around your lake.

  8. I have only seen one Baltimore Orile in my life. What a beautiful bird they are!! I hope to see one again someday.

  9. Monday it is. We'll talk time :-)

  10. It might be the last chilly morning for a while. When I walked 4 miles after work yesterday with a friend, it was 90F!


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