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

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Rainy day

It was a rainy morning but the weather report said it would be clearing up mid morning so I decided to walk a little later when it cleared up.  In the meantime we had breakfast and I started on my morning routine.  Mid morning it was pouring rain outside so I waited a bit longer and kept thinking I should have just went walking in the morning in the rain.
Lunch time came around and it was still raining.  After lunch it was just about stopped so I finally left on my walk.  It was 42 degrees and a mist was falling and then it rained for a little bit and then it finally stopped altogether but not before and I got a little wet. But still it was nice to be outside and I walked the farm loop and around town.  A few more cars around on the main road but on the farm road not a one.

These are on Farmer Bill's horses.  I don't see them often  because they are usually in another field.
I didn't look at my pedometer before I walked so don't know how far I walked but it was probably 5 miles or so.  I cut it a little short.

A picture I took along the way.
I haven't done much of anything today. 
Well it is just afternoon - still time to do something productive. : )

Hope your day is a happy one.

It is not easy to walk alone in the country
without musing upon something.

  1. I really like those photos! The horses are quite beautiful!

    I am glad you got to get your walk in.

  2. We have had lots of blue skies today, though the forecast for later is quite puzzling. With today's high int he mid-fifties, how can there be snow on the ground in the morning?!?

  3. I so love a nice rainy day. Enjoy your evening.

  4. Glad you finally got to walk. We had that almost-all-day rain yesterday. Today was absolutely gorgeous. Even the birds were singing today!!! BUT--the cold and snow come back tomorrow!

    Love that Dickens quote.

  5. I really like the second picture. So serene looking. You take beautiful pictures.

  6. I agree with Karen, you take beautiful pictures!!!:-)

  7. Glad to hear you were able to get out for your walk. The photos are all so nice, especially Farmer Bill's horses.

  8. I know I've said this before but I've always loved a rainy walk. I actually love a rainy walk more than a sunny one!!!

  9. We have had several rainy days in GA also....like the pics you took
