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 rainy, misty day

Pond behind the Drane House

51 degrees and a rainy morning today for my walk.  It was a very light rain though, more of a misty rain.  Glad I decided to wear my rain pants and slicker and I stayed nice and dry.

I walked down the main road here towards HT and back and then around town.  There was no one else out on this early Saturday morning.  It was just me and the crows and there were a lot of them about this morning.  A car passed by occasionally.

I like these rainy quiet mornings.
I walked 6.2 miles
Yesterday I reached a new personal best on my Striiv, 26,513 steps

It's been a misty rainy day all day and it was nice to just stay inside and do a little reading.  We turned on the pellet stove for a little while and got it nice and cozy inside.  In fact it got too warm and we had to turn it off.

Not a very nice day for a BBQ but they had tables set up in the garage and had the food all along one side and I set my cucumber salad down with the rest of the food.  In spite of the weather we had a nice time.  

Hope your day has been a happy one.
Smile - it makes you happy.

I loved autumn,
the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there
just for the beauty of it.

  1. Sorry it rained on your picnic day.. The first image of the trees is beautiful. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. Beautiful autumn photo up top. I dont mind walking in that light misty rain either, so nice to get home and shake off the chill.

  3. 26000+ steps eh!!! That is a LOT of steps for a day! I've ordered a 'Fit-bit' so I can try to at least do a little. I'm very impressed. Congratulations!

  4. I encountered difficulty commenting on your post on Friday. Not a good connection where I was, and it wouldn't allow me to open your blog.:-(

    Congratulations on that personal best! Great accomplishment!

    We have also had many crows about, though this afternoon it was a real pleasure to see some blue birds outside the window! The neighbor has blue bird houses.

    I love the color your picture shows there. Autumn is truly a season of beauty!

  5. Hello Happyone, Thank you for sharing your positive and encouraging blog. I just happened to find you thanks to a kind comment you left on Ruth's Photo Blog. Looking over several of your posts I found lots of good photography and many positive, often spiritually encouraging, thoughts. Your blog is a welcome find. Kind regards, John

  6. Your Autumn pics are so lovely! Glad you had a nice time at the BBQ!

  7. Glad they had an 'inside' place to have your BBQ... Sorry about the weather --but it looks like you all had a great time regardless.

    We've had rain-rain-rain here this week... BUT--we needed it since it has been so dry. But, like you, it's been quite warm. We still have the house opened and the fans on. I'm ready for some Fall Weather... ha


  8. That tree looks ablaze with the beautiful colors that only autumn can bring!

  9. What a glorious fall shot. I love this time of year too, that quote perfectly describes it.
    So sorry about a rainy day for the picnic but it sounds like it went off just fine inspite of the bad weather. We had rain on Saturday too. A huge downpour but it's nice today.

  10. Congrats on the PR! Nice! Your pedometer gives really cool information! Mine is much more basic.


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