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

Start of the Stairs Series

 Starting off the week with a beautiful morning for walking.
51 degrees and sunny.
πŸ‘Ÿ Walked 6 miles πŸ‘Ÿ

Saw a couple deer as I drove to town.
Walked all over town, up and down all the streets,
both cemeteries and the ball park.

John was out walking and we stopped and talked for some
minutes. Everyone I end up talking too will sooner or later ask
me how far I walk and say they see me all over the place.
Today was when John asked.

Joy was out walking too and we also stopped and talked a bit.
She told me that her and John are neighbors. She went to school
with his daughter.

This car isn't going anywhere!


I walked around taking pictures of stairs around town and have found
quite a good number of them so far.
Didn't think I'd find so many interesting stairs.
I have always said either STEPS or STAIRS when referring to STAIRS 
but have realized that is not right.
Steps are what you take up the Stairs.

The Stairs Series starts today.
Number One
I like the green chair on the porch.

 Ken and I walked around the boarder of Happy Trails and put up 50 Posted signs.
Wish the deer could read so they would know they were safe
from the hunters.
Don't have a problem with hunters just don't want them walking 
around on our property.


Last week I ordered bed sheets on line and they arrived Saturday.
Today they got washed, hung out on the line to dry,
and then made the bed.
They are a nice bright yellow.
Ken says they will keep us awake - I told him to close his eyes. 😎

Caron yarn (which I use for the baby blankets) was on sale at 
Herrschner's on line so I bought a bunch of skeins - 25 to be exact.
That should be enough for quite a few blankets.
Got a good variety of colors.

Made a few weave-it squares for the current blanket 
and then read.  I'm liking The Amazing Adventures of 4 cent Ned
but didn't realize at first that there were 8 other books so far
in the series.  I can't imagine 8 more books of it though so will
probably just read the first one.

That's it for today.
A happy day to you.πŸ˜€
Thanks for stopping by.

Sky and Verse

 Happy Sunday

The morning sky a couple of days ago.


The sky last evening from the front porch.
Once the leaves fall off the trees the views will get better.


πŸ“–    πŸ“–

Isaiah 43:10
Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, 
and my servant whom I have chosen: 
that ye may know and believe me, 
and understand that I am he: 
before me there was no God formed, 
neither shall there be after me.

Joshua 24:15
. . . . . but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

A Blessed Sunday to all.
