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

Inside today

A cloudy morning but the temperature was 52 degrees with a slight breeze.  I walked straight through town and continued walking down the main road out toward Happy Trails but passed up the turn and continued walking down the hill
for about about another mile and then turned left and walked down the here.  The bridge up ahead is the main road I left.  There is a river that runs along the road on the right and it was nice to listen to it as I walked along.
Turned around up ahead just past the buildings and walked back the same way.
Then I had to walk the 2 miles or so back up the hill. 
I didn't see any other people out.
No wildlife either.
Just cars, trucks and buses every once in a while.
About a mile from home I started feeling drops of rain but not enough to make me even damp.  It waited again until I got home.

I walked 6.2 miles.

No outside work today with the rain.  Had a day of work inside.
After lunch during a break in the rain showers I walked on over to the library.  Saw Lisa there, the woman who gets her hair done just before me.  I returned a book and got out two more.

Hope your day is scattered with happy things.

If you have good thoughts
they will shine out of your face like sunbeams
and you will always look lovely.

Three Happy Things
  1. Always, my morning walk
  2. A break in the rain so I could walk to the library
  3. Blogging friends


  1. I always enjoy the photos from your walk Karen!

    And I love your 3 Happy things each day.

  2. I need to practice that happy thoughts thing. = D

    Those extra pounds have no chance around you. Are you going back into cooler temps again for a while as we are? So disheartening.

  3. I'm chuckling about Vee's comment on the extra pounds. I would agree. I think I need to hire you as a personal trainer. :).
    Your town looks so friendly. I love how you can walk to so many places.

  4. :). Sounds like a pretty wonderful day to me. 6.2 miles is a good, strong walk.

  5. You have lovely views on your walk :)

  6. Yes... sounds like three happy things indeed!
    I missed my walk this morning, and I'm hoping to get it in later today.
    Keep up the walking, and the happy attitude. You inspire me :)

    Smiles :)

  7. Roald Dahl has some good wisdom!

    Weren't you lucky to finish your walk before the rain became a problem? It's nice to live in a town small enough so you are able to walk to the library.

  8. A rainy day sounds nice and cozy. We had clouds last night, but no rain. I would love to live close enough to the library to walk there!


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