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 spring day

Rain was forecast this morning so at 6:15 when I woke up I was not surprised
to see it pouring down rain and of course dark.  Just didn't feel like walking in the
rain so I waited until later in the morning to walk when the rain had stopped.

Glad I waited because when I walked at 9:00 the rain had stopped
and it was 44 degrees.
Didn't have my camera with me so these couple of pictures are taken 
with my phone.

Since it was later and the kids were already in school and I didn't
have to share the road (no sidewalk) with the school buses  
I walked the Farm Loop.
Nice to be walking the Farm Loop for a change, it's been a while.
During the summer it is the route I walk most days.

The silos on this barn looked like they are about to topple over.
Back to town I made a loop around town and then home.
Walked 6 miles.

In the afternoon the sun came out and though there was a bit of a breeze
it was near 70 degrees.
Went outside and did a bit of yard work.
Got my 8 square plots in the vegetable garden cleaned out.
Ken helped me move some logs around to expand our little back
yard meadow.  This year I plan on planting some wildflowers in it.

The day has been delightful (I like that word 😊) and
so nice to actually have a spring day.

A happy day to you.

  4. Hello, love the view of your farm loop. That silo looks like the leaning tower of Piza. I am hoping for a warm sunny day today. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!
