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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

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

A Rainy Walk

 Even warmer this morning with a 57 degree temperature.
Temperature dropping though, when I got home it was 50 degrees
and then in the afternoon it was in the 40's.
A rainy morning walk with just a breeze to start off with
but got windy by the time I got home.

A random walk all over town on one of my usual town walks.
Walking down the main street.

I've seen this cat looking out the window for quite a few days 
now as I walk past so snapped a picture.
The lighted window in the upper left corner of the above
picture is the same window.

A very quiet morning walk around town.
Didn't see anyone at all out.

Glad to be wearing my rain pants and yellow slicker because
it rained during my entire walk.

Walked 6.1 miles

🍁    🌧    🍂

In the morning we went to the Dollar General to do a little shopping
to use that $5 coupon we get to use on Saturday's.
While there I came across these cute pot holders.
I've started a pot holder collection and put them on the
kitchen walls near the ceiling.

It's been a dreary rainy day and turned foggy in the afternoon
but kept busy doing this and that around the house.
A few chores
Hanging up the potholders
Making weave-it squares
Going through old recipes

A happy Saturday to you.
Thanks for visiting.

 This is the fifth day in a row that the temperature has been 55 degrees in the morning when I walked.
No wind to speak of and a mix of sun and clouds.

Had one of those random walks up and down all the streets in town.
Nothing going on in town, very quiet and didn't see any others out.

Walking down the main street in town.

Walked 6 miles

Gathered up all the garbage and loaded it in the back of the truck
and went to the dump this morning.

It was another summer day here by us.
A good day to sit on the porch (might not get too many more days like this)
and read and do a couple of crossword puzzles.
Supposed to rain tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting.

A happy Friday to you.

Though our county has the least amount of Covid cases in the state,
in the last two weeks cases have started to increase each day.

Bulls with no name

 Once again this morning it was 55 degrees.
Calm, and mostly clear with a few low clouds dotting the area.
Got a bit of a late start because I didn't wake up till 6:35.

Walked up and down the main road in town and then headed over
to the industrial park and walked around there.

I come to this barn as I near the industrial park.
The barn is still used because there are hay bales in it.

On the other side some more boards have fallen off.

Walking in the industrial park here.

Leaving the ball park, went back through town and up to the
cemetery on the top of the hill and then down to see the bulls again.

Yesterday I mentioned that the bulls had names on their number tags
in their ears.  I was mistaken in thinking that was their names.
Today I noticed that quite a few of them had the same name,
Pacer, Merlin, Indy, were the names I saw.
Maybe they are the names of farms where they came from or will be going to?

Picture didn't come out so great because of the sun.

Saw Rebecca out walking as well as the woman runner I see
sometimes.  She was friendly today and said good morning.

Walked 6 miles

🍂    🌤    🙂

Got another load of laundry washed and hung outside.
A slight problem with this load - a tissue got washed with it.

Didn't get much else done in the morning because a friend
I haven't talked to in a while called and we had a good long talk.

I've had this recipe kicking around for I don't know how long
for Bread Pudding and finally made it today.
We both thought it was very good.
Put it on my Recipe blog HERE if you care to take a look.

I've been working on making weave-it squares and have almost half finished
of them for another baby blanket.

It was another summer like day and we sure are enjoying it before
the snows come. (Though I do like the snow too)

That's all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️
