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

☂     ☂     ☁    
Left on my walk this morning at 7:30.  It was 50 degrees and raining once again.  Still a bit windy but nothing like yesterday.  I walked around town, down passed the HT turnoff, then back to town and around town some more.  Took a loop around one of the cemeteries and the ball park loop.

Didn't see anyone else out.  Just waved to the usual people in cars, trucks, and buses.

It rained for about the first 2 miles, then it stopped and the clouds started to break up.  Amazing to watch the wind blow the clouds racing across the sky.  Then the sun appeared.  : )
Pretty much all the leaves have blown down off the trees now but the oak trees are still holding on to them.

Especially nice to be walking this morning after missing yesterday.
Walked 5.5 miles.

In the morning I got some things done around the house.  Nothing big just a bunch of little things that needed doing.

Even found some time to just sit and read.  I finished the book for my book club next month, The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman.  It was good but I thought it was a bit disjointed and seemed more like a book of short stories.  It says this on the cover.  "Hoffman offers a transforming glimpse of small-town America, presenting us with some three hundred years of passion, dark secrets, loyalty and redemption in a web of tales where characters lives are intertwined by fate and by their own actions."

We are going out in a little while to a friends house where we will meet up with a couple more couples for another game night of Mexican Train.  We will have supper there and then play the game.  Should be another fun night. : )

Hope your day has been a happy one.

 Clouds come floating into my life,
no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky.

  5. You and Ken have such fun with all of your friends and activities! So glad you were able to walk this morning. I haven't had much time to read blogs this week, but its always nice to check in and say hello. Have a great day.

  6. I m glad the rain stopped and your got out for your nice walk. The photos are pretty. Game night does sound like a fun time! Have a happy Friday!

    Funny how the trees hang on to their leaves, then 'whoosh', one good cold snap, and they all fall at once :)

    Hope you had a lovely time with your friends.

    Smiles :)
