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

The mornings are getting darker when I start out walking and I'm getting to see the sun rise again.

It was 60 degrees out this morning and a bit on the humid side.

Very quiet on this early Saturday morning.  Didn't see any one else out walking.

Walking along one of the corn fields a baby deer ran out of the field and nearly ran into me.  It made a quick turn around and ran right back into the corn.  I must have given it quite a fright!!

I walked 6.2 miles - 12,575 steps.
Don't find many coins around here.  This month it was just  12 cents - a dime and two pennies.
Just around home this morning doing a few things around the house.  Mary Jo arrives this afternoon so I'll probably just sit out on the porch waiting for her.

Mary Jo is getting a ride here with her son, daughter and daughters family.  It just happens that Mary Jo's ex husband lives just 6 1/2 miles down the road from us!!  Isn't that some coincidence?!! Her children are going to visit their father so it was so easy for them just to drop her off here.  Her ex is remarried and all get along and they have invited her, Ken and I to a cookout at their house tomorrow evening!  I've made a cucumber salad to bring as well as some chocolate chip cookies.  Should be a fun weekend.  : )

Take care my friends.
Have a great day.

lies in a fine mingling
of letting go
and holding on.

  1. Oh it should be fun! (I am always impressed when the exes get along.) What a sunrise! Doesn't bode well for the weather, but we'll see if that old adage is true. You might need to start whistling in he morning...just sayin'...

  2. Oh! It sounds like you have a good week-end planned! What fun to have Mary Jo visiting.

  3. Have Fun at the cookout. If you had been here you would have seen all kinds of folks out walking and running early this morning. Cool to see a fawn.

  4. I love the sunrise picture. I'm sure you did give that poor little deer quite a fright! Your weekend sounds absolutely great! Enjoy!

  5. So nice to have friends visiting!! How FUN!!
