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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Took this picture a couple of years ago.

34 degrees this morning with a cold rain and windy.  Not very nice outside but I put on my rain gear and headed out the door.  Planned on just walking a couple of miles, but after 2 miles it didn't seem so bad anymore so I walked another 2 miles.  By that time the rain had stopped so I walk the last 2 miles also for my usual 6 miles.

Walked all over town and didn't see anyone else out.  No animals about either.  

My feet were soaked by the time I got back home and cold too.  It felt nice when I got home to sit with my feet next to the pellet stove.  They were warmed up in no time.

Home today doing this and that around the house.  A little cleaning, reading and knitting.
 A little chipmunk in my back yard.
A quiet day but still a good one.
A happy day to you.

It is not easy to walk alone in the country
without musing upon something.

We got the big snow storm, so our world is white again. But i'm under the weather, so my walking is slipping a little, or maybe a lot!

Hello, another beautiful scene and walk. I like the covered bridge in the first photo. The chipper is cute. The quote is perfect. Enjoy your Thursday and the weekend ahead!
