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

63 degrees this morning and mostly cloudy but I did see the sun once in a while.  A bit of a breeze which kept it from being hot.

The sun no longer wakes me up shining in the window and I got up 15 minutes later than usual this morning.

I walked one of the town routes, up and down and all around.

Kathy was out walking but no sign of the new woman from yesterday.  Maybe she'll walk every other day.

Not much happening around town this morning. 
I walked 6.2 miles.
Sunrise 6:24
Sunset 8:20

Ken went up to Happy Trails to work on the cabin again.  Even though it was bowling day, he was on a roll and wanted to get more work done. 
So I went bowling on my own.
There were six of us there today.
Scores not bad today.  All above my average. 155, 150 and 140 in that order.

My car was really dirty again so before I went bowling I gave it a good washing.
Nice having a clean and shiny car.

That's about all I did today.
Looking forward to reading more of my book.

Hope your day was a happy one.

  1. I can understand some people not liking happy folks....they would prefer others be full of gloom and doom just like they are. Very sad!!! Those flowers are gorgeous....are they along your driveway?

    1. Thanks, no the flowers are just along where I walk.

  2. The first picture with all those flowers is exceptional.

  3. It was a busy one...happy comes tomorrow. I can see you shaking your head at me!

    1. Praying for you each morning Vee. Happy will come again. : )

  4. Those flowers are amazing!
    Nice to have a clean car. I was washing the dried flies off mine last night. It runs smoother and goes faster when it's clean :)
    Have a wonderful Wednesday :)

    1. Oh yes it does. : ) Mine's a shiny red one.

  5. Love the flowers in your first photo. So pretty! It is dark in the mornings when we walk now. Harder to get up in the dark! I dislike driving around in a dirty car too. Hope you had a nice walk this morning. We are just on our way out the door.

    1. I did and I'm sure you did too. : )
      I leave later than you so it is still light out when I leave but it won't be long before I leave in the dark.

  6. Hello, I love the beautiful flowers and photos. I like walking outside in the cooler weather, the humidity lately is not good. Have a happy day and week ahead!

    1. I prefer cool weather but I'll walk in anything. That happens when you're obsessed. : )

  7. Beautiful flowers! I've always called the yellow ones Black-eyed Susans. I don't know if that is the proper name. Good bowling scores. Have a great day.

    1. Yes, they are Blacked-eyed Susans and the MD state flower.

  8. Hi Karen! Good bowling!
    I hope your new shoes are still working well!

    1. I like my old ones better. Still have to get some inserts for them. Today I took my old shoes out of retirement. : )

  9. Love all those pretty flowers.

  10. That Black-Eyed Susans are SO pretty... They always make me smile.... One of my best friends was named Susan --and she died several years ago from cancer... I always think of her when I see the Black-Eyed Susans...


  11. Oh the flowers in your first photo are lovely.

    ... and it's so nice when a car is clean again!

    All the best Jan
