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

Another sunny day

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
This morning it was 55 degrees, sunny and breezy.  I notice that when it is warm I say breezy and when it is cold I say windy! : )

My feet took me around the Farm Loop today.  Farmer Bill was planting in one of his fields and didn't see me walk by.

Another farmer was loading up a wagon of hay out of the red barn that I take a lot of pictures of.  He was young and I hadn't seen him before.

Lots of red winged black birds about as well as a few killdeers all upset with me as I walked by.  Must be nests around.

A couple of mallard ducks were in one of the farm ponds.  Picture not so good because I had to zoom in quite a bit.
Once back to town I made a loop around one of the cemeteries.  Saw Kathy walking around there too.

Walked 6 miles.
Found a penny.

Tried to get a few things done inside the house but it was a beautiful, sunny, cool day so I spent most of the day outside.  Still trying to get all the weeds out of the gardens. 

I am happy to say that I've seen quite a few butterflies around on the flowers.  The daisies and cone flowers all have buds and should be blooming very soon now.  I like that they bloom all summer long.
Caught a picture of this butterfly with my phone in the back yard by the shed.
So nice being able to have the windows open with fresh air blowing through the house.  I love this time of year.

Haven't had any ice cream in the house for a while so we went out and got a couple half gallons after supper.  Nothing on sale this week so just got two.  I look forward to my bowl of chocolate chip mint later on this evening.

A happy day to you.
