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.

A visit

Another picture from yesterday in the fog.
Old Shed
♡     ♡     ♡     ♡
It was 50 degrees this morning and sunny.  I walked the farm loop.  Some cows were down near the fence.
I walked around town too. The rhododendron are all blooming now and this is the biggest one I think I've ever seen.
A very quiet Saturday morning and didn't see anyone else out.  Only the cows and this farm cat enjoying a bit of sun. 
Went around one of the cemeteries the loop behind the ball park and back home.
I walked 6 miles.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes and kind words. : )

My son David and the two grandkids drove down from NJ and got here about 9:30.  We had a nice visit today.  We had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch and ate them outside on the deck under the umbrella.

Japhy stands in one of the trees in the back yard while Scout stands on a milk can which you can't see.
We all had a turn playing with the paddles and ball, trying to keep it up in the air as long as we could.
Here David and I are having a go.  If you look closely you can see a little yellow ball between us.  It is a little closer to me.
We will be having the sweet potato chili and corn bread for supper later, and of course some birthday cake.  David and the kids are over at the playground for a little while so I thought I'd quick write a post and publish it.

It's been a fun day with more to go.
Hope your day is happy and bright.
happyone : )
