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

Misty but warm

I was surprised that it was a warm 60 degrees this morning!!  More fog and mist around and this time I wore my rain paints and yellow slicker too.  The slicker works good on misty days but on rainy days the water drips inside somehow and I end up getting wet anyway.  But today it worked good.  Another random walk around town.

Just after I took the picture a rabbit went racing in front of me and went right across the cemetery.  Boy did he move fast!!!   I saw one cow all alone.  It's unusual to just see one on its own.

A saw one man walking his dog.  We stopped and talked for a bit.  I see him once in awhile but don't know is name yet.

As always it was nice to start my day with a walk.
I walked 6 miles - 11,966 steps
Sunrise: 7:30
Sunset: 6:35
Ken didn't get around to painting the second coat last night but he was at it again when I got back from my walk and finished later in the morning.  I love the color - a cheery light blue!!

It's been a rainy, dreary kind of day and we just did things around the house.  Looking forward to tomorrow when the new counter tops arrive and then getting things back to order.

Just popping out to Subway this evening for subs. 

Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )
There ought to be a way to combine "autumn" and "morning"
into one word, the combination of the two 
is special enough to be its own entity.

  1. LOVE the quote!
    We've had a dreary day here too!

  2. Sounds nice. Believe it or not, sunshine all the time can get boring. I love a nice cloudy dreary day now and then. Enjoy your subs and good luck with the new counter tops!

  3. This is one of the few times it's been warmer where you are than where I am :)

  4. I like the picture of Mother Nature's carpet! It is really mild here as well. Enjoy the day! Art

  5. I'm fairly certain we didn't reach 60 today. It was rainy and chilly. We went out for our dinner tonight and the car thermometer said 47 degrees. Of course, come March, that will feel pretty good!

    Looking forward to seeing your finished kitchen work!


  6. I am smiling because Ken did the second coat and because TODAY is THE day! So happy and excited for you.
