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

Rain

 The temperature was 47 degrees, it was dark with lots of rain 
and even some wind thrown in there when
I went walking this morning.

Walked all over town, around the ball park,
and just the lower cemetery.

Not much happening on my walk today.
Didn't see anyone else out.

Took a picture of me in my rain outfit in the reflection of the fire house door
and it's the only picture I took walking.


Walked 6 miles

🌧    🌧    🌧

We went food shopping at Shop and Save right after breakfast
and then just stayed put in the house the rest of the day.
Not a very pleasant day to be outside in all the rain and wind.
A lot of the leaves have come down!!

Enjoyed a nice day puttering about the house.

Knitted
Did a couple crossword puzzles.

Supper tonight was fried bell peppers (from our little garden),
onions, and sausage in a burrito shell.

That's all I've got for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
A happy Tuesday to you. πŸ™‚

I love fajitas!! But I use steak or chicken with peppers & onions. Yum. A good meal on such a rainy day.

Sounds like your weather today was what we had yesterday. We had blue skies and sunshine today!

It's been steady rain today, but tomorrow is supposed to be sunny.

I love a rainy day, and we may just get one tomorrow. Now, what should I do on my rainy day...

It has been a rainy day here as well, and that is fine because we need it. We've had rain every day since Saturday. There is quite a bit of snow in the nearby mountains now. I like the picture of you in your rain outfit. I usually exercise in the basement on rainy days, but Charly and I were able to get our afternoon walk in when I got home this afternoon. Sounds like you had another good day. See you tomorrow!

It rained here as well so I skipped my walk. I wasn't feeling all that well so...
Tomorrow I'll get back on track.

It was rainy and windy here yesterday too, not a good day for walking.
Tree branches were coming down. Your dinner sounds yummy. Take care, have a happy day!

I think it was Monday that we had the high winds and rain, a little over 2". The wind is still blowing. Ken's bridge is looking good. And I love those big green walnuts you picked up. I've never known how to get in to the nut. Someone once said to dump them in the driveway and run over them several times to remove the outter shell. I've never tried that. :)
