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

New phone

It was a cloudy humid morning and a bit dreary out and the temperature was 72 degrees.  There were lots of birds chirping which made the morning cheery in spite of the weather. : )
I walked along one of my connect the path routes.  This is just one of the bridges I've walked over many many time.
I heard a couple of woodpeckers but just couldn't find them with all the leaves on the trees.

A few people here and there but it was really quiet out there today.  School ended last week and there is a lot less traffic around too.
So I had a nice quiet enjoyable walk.
I walked 6.1 miles.
I took this picture last evening standing on the back deck.  I thought the clouds looked really cool.  We could see bolts of lightening in the clouds too.  We never got any rain but some one sure did.  Can you see the airplane there too?
Not much to do around the house anymore.  Just waiting for some good weather to bring up the next load.  Probably tomorrow.
Closing is in 2 weeks from today!!

My new phone came in the mail today.  I got a new one not too long ago and at first had so much trouble with it because it was a touch screen and it kept doing things that I didn't want it to.  I kind of got used to it and even thought I liked it but I realized it really didn't like it at all.  It was way too sensitive.  So I went back to a flip up and like it so much better.  I even got to keep my old phone number.  I've been putting all my contacts into the phone this afternoon.

Hope all is fine in your part of the world.
A happy day to you.

  1. What an amazing picture from your deck! You are a brave person to undertake a new phone! It took us a couple of weeks to figure out how to get my phone off driving mode!:-) Even our "techy" oldest daughter just couldn't figure out this simple phone.:-) I finally worked on it!:-)

  2. I love your cloud picture. Sounds like a lovely walk. I have an old phone too and so does Charly...no smart phones for us. We are old school and horror or horrors our son doesn't even have his own cell phone! We are just terrible old school parents ;-) (We even read books printed on paper!)
    Enjoy your Wednesday tomorrow.

  3. The clouds are spectacular! Excellent shot!
    Love the quote about worry.
    Hope the weather holds up for you today. MJ

  4. Birdsong really is morning's soundtrack isn't it? I wish I still had my old flip phone sometimes LOL.

  5. GREAT quote!

    Gorgeous photo of thunder head clouds and the plane.

    Hope he was actually no where near the thunder heads. In a plane, you do not, not, not want to fly into a storm. Brrrrr...

    time is passing. I love your new Header. It says exactly what's going on, in your life.

    Hooray for getting a new phone, which you like!!!!

  6. Wow, that's a massive cloud! Great lighting, too.
