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.

Well Drilling

🍁     🍂     🍁

The temperature was 58 degrees this morning with some patchy fog around. 
 That didn't last long and there was plenty of sunshine after a couple miles.

Walked behind my house to start.  There are street lights and no traffic there
and by the time I'm walking down the main road outside of town
it is pretty light out.

Walked up Barn Sale a ways and then back to town and around both
cemeteries before heading back home.

Lisa was out running and I walked around one of the cemeteries with Cathy.

Walked 6.2 miles

I was at home all morning doing house chores and went up to the
building site after lunch.
Block was delivered for the garage but work won't start till
probably Wednesday.

Drilling for the well started today which is very exciting.
They drilled 60 feet of it so far and will be back tomorrow.
Very curious to know how deep down they will have to go to find water.
One neighbor they had to go down 700 feet but another neighbor had
water after 240 and still another at 50 so who knows.  My guess,
and it is just a hopeful guess, is 200 feet.  The more they have to drill,
the more it costs.
Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to tell you how deep the well is.
That's it for today.
A happy day to you.

This morning I had a quiet random walk around town.
It was a  beautiful sunny morning and 55 degrees.

Walking around one of the cemeteries I saw four deer come out of the corn field.  Two adults and two little ones.
 I thought for sure a couple driving around town was going to stop and ask me for directions but they never did.  They passed me a few times after turning around. 
The wife probably said, why don't we stop and ask that walker for directions,
and he said no, I know where I'm going.  😊

The town pond is started to look better now.  Nice with the fountain in it and I noticed along the edges of the pond some cattails coming back and there is some yellow flowers around too.
Walked 6.2 miles

I did some laundry and when I went to hang it up outside saw that some 
animal and chewed through two of the lines and several pieces of the
line was on the ground.  Maybe squirrels or chipmunks getting nesting material?
Ken had my lines fixed in no time and my wash was blowing in the breeze.

This afternoon I finally got the lawn mowed for this week. 
Probably won't have to do that chore too many more times this year.
I was going to do a little more cutting of the dead daisies 
and pulling weeds but ended up sitting in the swing.
It was like a summer day here this afternoon.
A happy day to you.

Morning Sky

No fog this morning and we had a beautiful sunrise.
 🍃     🍁     🍂
This morning it was  55  degrees when I started out on my morning walk
and a mix of sun and clouds.

A random walk around town today.
Saw Lisa running up by one of the cemeteries
and walked around the other cemetery with Cathy a couple of times.

She left and then I continued walking a bit more before going home.

Only saw two rabbits today but they were BIG ones.

Walked 6 miles

 Didn't get much done today, but you need a day like that every once in a while.
Didn't take any pictures of the house today but the garage footings
are all poured and Monday they will do the block.

A happy day to you.
