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

Team Happy

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿

Pretty chilly outside this morning.  Feels more like January than April.  20 degrees and windy.  Sure was nice to see the sun coming up over the mountain.  Felt so nice and warm on my face.  : )
I was by one of the cemeteries when the sun popped over the mountain.

This mornings walk was another one all over and around town.  Thought about going around the Farm Loop but thought the wind would really be cold up that way.

Stopped by the post office and dropped off a card down the mail slot.

 No other people out and walking but did see the usual birds and a couple of rabbits.
Stopped by the little pond down by the Drane house and snapped a picture of the geese.  There was some mist low over the water.
Walked 6.3 miles.

Though the sun was out we had some light snow flurries through the morning hours.  Nothing stayed though and though it stayed cold it was sunny.

Tuesday again and you know what that means.  : )  Bowling Day.
Five of us bowling today.
My Scores:  127, 152, 122, 103.

As usual stopped at Walmart for some shopping before coming home.

By the way - Remember me mentioning that it is tract month at church?  Well, I did get on the Happy Team.  : )  Pastor went back and changed me to the happy team instead of the Glad Team.

Hope your day was a happy one and you smiled often.
