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.

Saturday's Critters

Some critters for Eileen's Saturday's Critters
One of the little red squirrels that visit my backyard feeder.
Milo, the cat that lives at the day care center in town.
Blue Birds this morning up at one of the cemeteries.
Pictures not that great because I had to zoom in but was happy to be
able to get any picture of othem

🐾     🐾
64 degrees this morning when I left on my walk.  There was a sight drizzle and 
it was once again windy though not as bad as yesterday.
Knew the umbrella wouldn't do much good so left it at home and just
figured I'd get wet.  After a mile the drizzle stopped and the rest of my walk
was just cloudy.
My walk took me all around town, behind my house, the two cemeteries,
and the ball park.
Noticed another house for sale in town, this one up the hill on my street.
Will be interesting to see what it sells for.
No others out this morning that I saw.
Walked 6.4 miles

Ken went up to Happy Trails after breakfast and I stayed home.

 In a few weeks it will be Bible Time (VBS) at our church and they
need lots of cookies for all the kids so today I made the first batch of
5 dozen chocolate chippers for them.  I did eat one cookie this time.

This evening there was an awards dinner for the teens at our church
held at Penn Alps in Grantsville that we went to and enjoyed very much.

Life is Good
 A happy day to you.

  1. Great pictures of the animals you meet on your daily walks. I love the birds in the cemetery. Glad your day has been good. Those kids who go to VBS at your church are sure lucky - they will get some of your delicious cookies! Have a happy Sunday!

  5. I love bluebirds. And red squirrels as well, actually. They are so boisterous! When I lived in Maine, the red squirrel was more common than the gray squirrel, but bluebirds were very rare. Here in Richmond, there are no red squirrels but lots of bluebirds.
