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

Foggy Morning

This morning when I started walking it was 37 degrees and cloudy.
Things were wet and it felt like rain at any minute but it never rained on me.
Little fog around too.
Walked through town and up Barn Sale Rd a ways.  All the cows were
still sleeping in the field when I walked by.
One stood up and then the others followed.
Walked down toward Happy Trails and then back to town.
Around both cemeteries and the ball park and through town again and home.

Even more geese at the town pond, I guess about 25 of them now.
Saw the first Robin.  Spring is on the way.

Another morning that the rain held off so I didn't have to walk in the rain.
Walked 6 miles

๐Ÿ’™     ๐Ÿ’™
We've just been home today not doing much of anything.
I read quite a lot.
Our son, David stopped by.
He decided to relocate here to Garrett county, Maryland.
He found a job and has moved into the cabin that we built up at Happy Trails.
So nice having him close by for a while.
The cabin is 1/4 mile from our new house.

A quiet day around home and now a quiet evening also.
Life is Good
Count your blessings and have a happy day.

Fingerprint Day

Left over picture from my walk on Monday.
Old sunflowers at Farmer Bill's place.
Didn't see a pretty sunrise this morning on my walk.
It was a cloudy morning with a bit of a mist at first but then it
stopped so I didn't get wet.
Did have some rain on and off today though.
It was 42 degrees with a bit of a wind.

An uneventful walk around town, the cemeteries, and the ball park loop
but still a good walk. 
Thanks for the get well wishes and prayers for Ken.
Still sick but his fever is gone and he is feeling on the mend.

I went to church for a day of Fingerprints on my own today.
We all missed Ken because he is the cutter. 
A couple others can work the cutter and do once in a while 
but they all couldn't make it either.

Left a little after 9:00 this morning and finished up at 3:00 and left for home.
There were just 10 of us working today.
Lots of sickness going around.

Before getting home I made a stop at the Shop and Save to pick up
a few things.  One of those things being ice cream.
It was on sale again.

That's been my day.
I'm off now to get supper made.

Life is Good
Count your blessings and have a happy day.

Chirpping birds

Another beautiful morning.
55 degrees this morning, windy but sunny.
Another great walking day though I think most mornings are good for walking. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Walked around the ball park loop first today and then both of the cemeteries. 
Then it was just walking around town till I got my 6 miles in.

The little town pond that had the 2 geese from yesterday have been
joined by 12 others this morning.  

My horse friend Star came over to say hi to me again.

 This morning was the first time I've heard the birds chirping early in the morning.
That's enough to make anyone smile. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Spotted this cardinal on top of a tree calling his distinctive call.
Zoomed in and got a pretty good picture.
Didn't realize there was another bird there as well till I downloaded it.
I am thankful to be able to take a morning walk.
๐Ÿ’™     ๐Ÿ’™
Got the sheets washed this morning and outside on the line to dry.
Nice sleeping tonight on nice smelling sheets.
Then got supper started in the slow cooker.
Went outside and spent some time in the garden.
Sat on the porch and read.

Mid afternoon it clouded up and we had rain showers,
but between the showers the sun came out.
Ken is not feeling so good today, sure hope he is just getting a cold
and not the flu like I had.
Looks like I'll be going to church alone this evening.
Off I go now to eat supper.

Life is Good
Count your blessings and have a happy day.
happyone  ๐Ÿ’•
