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

No Walk

This fall picture is from a few years ago.
I used to walk around this lake where I used to live.

The reason I posted a picture from a few years ago is because I didn't take any today.  I woke up this morning at 6:30 and the wind was howling and it was raining hard and of course it was dark.  It doesn't happen often but I just did not feel like getting up, so I turned over and went back to sleep.  Never did walk this morning.

Since it was such a yucky day we decided to go to La Vale and do some shopping.  Went in a few stores and I got a few goodies.  New hiking boots, cookbook with lots of delicious recipes which I'm sure I'll be sharing, cupcake tins, and the Bible cover is for a friend.  Everything on sale too with some very good bargains.  : ) 
We also did some food shopping in Martins and walking in the parking lot I found 2 pennies.

It's time to think about supper and then it's off to church this evening.

Later I'll be having some chocolate chip ice cream which we picked up at Martins.

Hope your day has been a happy one and you smiled often.

It was late October, the leaves tinged with brown,
and the air crisp in a way that made you shiver
if you stood still for too long.

    Love the photo of the lake.
    Enjoy your ice cream!

  2. Gorgeous fall picture of the lake! It sounds like it was a good morning for sleeping in! Yay for such good shopping!

  3. Great photo even if it's from the past. Heavy rain here all day too.

  6. Hi Karen, Your photos are wonderful, as always! It does sound like it has been a bit on the cool side in your area. The trees and plants along your walk are really beautiful in their fall colors. Congrats on getting through the dental appointment so well. I sure agree with you ... the water pic is a big help.

  7. That lake where you used to walk is gorgeous!!! It sounds like you had a great shopping trip.

  8. What a pretty lake you lived by! It would be stunning to take walks there. Sorry about your lousy weather, but it is nice to stay inside some mornings. Those boots look good for walking!
