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

dark and eerie

It rained during the night and this morning it was dark and looked like rain 
so I wore my rain pants and took along my umbrella.  
Didn't wear my rain slicker because it was 60 degrees and I would have been too warm.

Started walking around town and once the sky got that morning glow it looked
like the sun might pop through the clouds so I went back home and dropped
off the umbrella and changed my pants.

I came across these mushrooms in someones yard.
There was a whole mess of them in three different stages.
These were round and looked like toasted marshmallows.
 These were flatted out and were very large.  Bigger than my hand spread out.
Then there were these that cupped up and had a little water in them.
It was interesting to see all three different stages.

Walked all over town up and down all the streets.  

Saw the usual rabbits hopping about but didn't see any people.

It is so dark when I start out that I don't see much of anything for the first half of my walk.

This morning after it was light out for maybe 15 minutes it started getting very windy and it started getting dark again.  I looked up and saw some really dark clouds and everything had an eerie color to it.  Thought I'd better head back home before the rain came.
I didn't quite make it back home before the rain.
Walked 6 miles

A while ago someone gave me some jumbo cupcake pans
and this morning I made angel food cupcakes in them.
It was hard to get them out of the pans and I made a bit of a mess of it.
I'll not do that again.  
Next time I'll try regular cupcakes or maybe muffins.

My office/craft room was in a bit of disarray AGAIN
so I spent the afternoon getting it tidy again.
Spent some time reading too.
Reports say that it is getting cold tonight
and tomorrow morning it is supposed to snow.
Sure doesn't seem like it, it's 60 degrees.
 A happy day to you.

"It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are
or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.
It is what you think about it."

  1. Beautiful fall colors and the mushrooms are cute.

  2. Amazing mushrooms! We had a big crop of them all over the place after Matthew went by. That sky does look pretty threatening. We expect cool temps in the morning here too but no snow. :) Have a warm evening.

  3. Quite some mushrooms. Send some cold down to us...please.

  4. Those mushrooms look interesting.I had seen a lot more mushrooms around here this year as well.

  5. I see you're getting some fall colour now too.

  6. That quote below is so true:)

    I love mushrooms esp. when they are edible, however, I cannot identify them which is good to cook or not. The autumn Leaves on the ground look so lovely...a beautiful mess.:=)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Certainly feeling much colder here and more grey clouds. Those are funny mushrooms but I don't know the difference.
    Have a lovely day!

  8. The colorful leaves on the driveway/street/grass look like artwork. You could frame it.
    I love your quotes at the end of your blog. I often post them on my facebook page

  9. What interesting mushrooms! That is quite the sky in your last photo. We have been "enjoying" two days of rain with much cooler temperatures. Yikes, on Wednesday Chuck and I were walking around in t-shirts. Did you get snow this morning?

  10. Hello, the fall leaves look so pretty. Beautiful colors and images. The cold weather is on it's way. Happy weekend to you.

  11. I would love a rainy cozy day like yours. We are still using the air conditioning and getting up into the 90s here. Have a lovely weekend. See you again soon!

  12. Interesting mushrooms- I saw bunches of those in August when it rained almost every day the whole month. Now we are in a stretch of drought. Glad you made it home before you got too wet! Have a great weekend.

  13. Mushrooms do seem to come in all shapes and sizes ...

    All the best Jan
