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 with a mix of sun and clouds for my walk.
Walked the Farm Loop.
Farmer Bill was out in his front yard and I stopped to talk to him.
You may remember me posting pictures of his white and black llamas before 
and I  was asking him about them.  Turns out they are not llamas at
all but alpacas.  He was telling me that he has to keep them closer to the
barn now because the other day 2 dogs attacked them!!
Both alpacas are okay don't know whose dogs they are.

Back to town I walked a loop around town and around the Ball Park Loop.
Another stone house for sale in town.  This one down the road
from the school.  It has been empty for many months.
Looks like it too needs quite a lot of work but would be really cute fixed up.
Saw Kathy in town but from a distance so we just waved.

Walked 6.2 miles
Found a penny

Left this morning in my nice clean car with the latest two baby blankets
and went to church to meet the others for Baby Blanket Day.
There were 7 of us there today.
Lots of babies being born around here this month (36) but we have kept
up and not a baby left the hospital without a blanket. 
I got 5 weave-its done for the next one in a mint green.

Didn't do much of anything this afternoon, mostly read.

Look at my daisies down the end of the driveway now.
I can see them blocks away.
That's about it for today.
 A happy day to you.

Butterflies, blankets and coloring

The sun trying to shine through some low hanging clouds this morning.
It did after a while and it was mostly a sunny walk.

HennyPenny - Yes, our new house will be up at Happy Trails.  No, those flowers were NOT in my yard but in Farmer Marvin's yard around his gazebo.
61 degrees this morning and a bit of a breeze.
One of those random walks when I go all over the place but I did stay
around town today.

 A tree that looked interesting to me.  It is by the town pond which you
can kind of see in the picture.  
They put straw all around the edges of the pond.
A couple pictures along my walk.
Saw the man walking his big white dog around the ball park loop.
Then I spotted Kathy walking toward me and when we met up I turned 
around and we walked together for about a mile and then we went our separate
ways again.  You might wonder why we don't walk together but both of
us prefer walking alone but a mile or so together is nice.

Walked 6.2 miles
Found a dime and a penny

Ken went up to Happy Trails in the morning to clear some more rocks out
of the way of the building site.  Nice ones that he wants to save and has been
putting them in several piles out of the way.

I stayed home and washed cars.  Washed mine first and then took it for a 
little spin around the Farm Loop.  
When I walk the loop it doesn't seem long at all but when I drove it I 
thought it seemed a pretty far way to walk!

Next up was the Equinox.  Now that was one dirty car!!
I enjoy washing my car but washing the Equinox is work.
Took a few minutes out of washing cars to take a couple of pictures of
butterflies enjoying my cone flowers.
Didn't finish the Baby Blanket last night like I thought, but 
I did finish it this afternoon.   
Walked over to the library at 4:45 for some coloring fun at the library.
Just a few of us again.  I'm surprised more people don't show up!!
Anyway the 4 of us enjoyed it.

As always I had to leave a few minutes early and Ken picked me up
for Wednesday evening church service. 
There doesn't seem to be a good time for supper on these days
so I went without.
BUT I'm off now for some ice cream.🍨

Life is Good
 A happy day to you.

Face in a rock

Can you see the mean face in the rock?

 A sunny morning and 62 degrees for my walk today.
Walked the streets behind my house, the ball park loop, and both cemeteries.
Went up Sale Barn a ways too
and then headed back home.

Walking along the road near the doctors office a lady in a car stopped to
ask me what days the office was closed.
Told her I thought Monday but knew they were open on Tuesday.
She then told me that today was Wednesday and I told her I was pretty sure
it was Tuesday today.  She insisted that it was Wednesday.
Anyway I told her she was a bit early and that they don't open till 8:00.

Saw Kathy's car in the parking lot by the pond but never did see her.
Rebeca was out walking her dog.

Walked 6.3 miles

Left this morning and went to Staples down in LaVale again to get final copies 
made of all the plans to give to Ronnie.  
We got 8 copies made of 7 different pages.
It took longer than we thought it would and ended up spending the
whole day there.
Had lunch at Wendy's.  I had the small spicy chicken Caesar salad
which was pretty good.

We dropped off the copies at Ronnie's who lives just 6 miles down the road
from our house.

Planned on going bowling but since it took longer getting the copies made
we were too late for bowling.  There is always next week for bowling!

I'm pretty sure I'll be able to finish the Baby Blanket this evening.

That's it for today.
A happy day to you.

He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding:
but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
