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.

🌽     🌽
64 degrees this morning and sunny when I went for my walk.
Walked a town route which starts on the roads behind my house,
through town and down towards HT, around both cemeteries and
up a down some town streets.

Walked around one of the cemeteries a couple times with Kathy.

Saw a lot of rabbits as I always do but saw a couple of deer out by the
cornfields as well.

These pretty black-eyed Susan's are in the garden at the day care center.
Nothing like an early morning walk to start the day.
Walked 6.2 miles
🚶     🚶
Got a couple loads of laundry done and hung out on the line.
Made some more cucumber salad with cucumbers from the garden.
I'm getting a bit tired of eating cucumbers but not Ken so the salad is for him.

Finished up the latest baby blanket the other day.

We sat outside on the swing under the tree during the eclipse.
Not much to see in my neck of the woods.  The sun just dimmed a bit.

Stayed around home all day.
It was a good day. 😊
A happy day to you.

all the walks I want to take,
all the book I want to read

Jesus Paid it All
~ Elvina  M Hall 1865

I hear the Savior say,
Thy strength indeed is small,
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow'r and Thine alone,
Can change the leper's spots
And melt the heart of stone.  

For nothing good have I
Where-by Thy grace to claim;
I'll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv'ry's Lamb.

And when, before the throne,
I stand in Him complete,
Jesus died my soul to save,
My lips shall still repeat.

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.
🎶     🎶
Hebrews 10:12
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever,
sat down on the right hand of God.

Isaiah 1:18
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:
though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be like crimson, they shall be as wool.

A Blessed Sunday to you.
Jesus Love You.

Saturday's Critters

Linking up with Eileen for Saturday's Critters.
Here's Rosie, who lives along the farm loop, taking a rest.
A couple of roosters who live at the dairy farm.

64 degrees this morning and sunny.

Walked through town and down toward Happy Trails and turned around about
a mile down the road.  Then back to town and just walked all over the place.

Don't usually see many people around town on a Saturday and today it was
again very quiet around town.
Lots of rabbits though!

A quiet and peaceful walk and I am so happy to live in the country. 😊
Walked 6.3 miles
🚶     🚶
When I got back home from my walk Ken was already up at Happy Trails
meeting with Ronnie, our builder and Scott the excavator.
All looks well and looks like ground breaking for the house will start
within the next 2 weeks.  We are pretty excited about getting started!!!
Living just 2 1/2 miles from HT we will be able to watch the progress
day by day.

Did my chores around the house in the morning and by lunch time Ken
had come back home and said come on I'm taking you out for lunch.
We went over to Grantsville to The Cornucopia Cafe.
We sat outside and I snapped a picture from our table.
Walked around the little shops that are scattered about.
Walked to the bridge over the river and snapped this photo from
the middle of the bridge of the other two bridges.
First one one is Rte 40 and the one in the distance is I68.
 Took the long way home along the back roads.
A very pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

A happy day to you.
happyone : )

Sharon - The she is me and I do both.  If I'm not going to be home I will let the bread machine do the baking but if I'm home I take it gets baked in the oven.  I like the shape of the loaf better baked in a loaf pan.  The machine makes the loaves so tall.  The picture of the bread has been baked in the oven.
