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

A walk, a ride and BLT's

Drove the jeep to town again and started walking at 6:34.
60 degrees, cloudy, and calm.
Sunrise 7:00
A random walk all around town.
Up and down the main road and the sides roads too.

 A couple of times around the cemeteries and around the
ball park too.

I often see a man running around the ball park and he was there today.
He ran one way and I was walking in the opposite direction
so we encountered each other a few times.
We had a conversation a sentence at a time as we passed by
and never slowed down.
We even laughed about it one time.
One of the times we exchanged names.
He is Thomas.
Walked back to the jeep and then back home.
Walked 6 miles
☁️     ☁️
After breakfast we hit the road again in the jeep and
drove to a church in central Pennsylvania.
A different one from last week and a bit closer.
No delivery this time but had to pick up a few things to
bring back to our church.
It was mostly back roads and the sun was out so it
was a nice ride.
Stopped and had lunch at Wendy's.
When we got home I really didn't feel like doing much
so just puttered around.

We ate apples on the porch and I threw my core down in
the lower driveway so the deer could find it.
One of those tomatoes that Ron gave yesterday was turned into
BLT's for supper this evening.
It tasted every bit as good as they looked. 
Going to make a Caprese Salad with the other one tomorrow.

That's about it for today.
Hope you enjoyed your day.
happyone 🥰

A tissue in the wash

Drove to town again and parked by the pond and started walking at 6:45.
It was 60 degrees, cloudy and calm.
Sunrise 6:59
 Took another one of those random walks around town.
Walked up where Lisa (who I see running quite often) lives
which is where I turned around and took this picture.
These are her two ponies.
Walked back to the main road and then over to the ball park
loop and walked around there a couple of times.
Then to the post office to drop off some mail down the slot.
Continued on around town and then around the lower cemetery
and finally to the cemetery on top of the hill.
Quite a bit of the corn field got cut down since Saturday.
Collected a few more fallen apples to bring home for our deer.

Saw Dwayne walking and a woman walking her dog.
I see her quite often but her dog doesn't seem friendly and barks a lot
so she walks away from people.

Walked my usual 6 miles
Found a dime 
Victor, that's like 10 pennies 🙂
🍁     🍂     🍃
 Did a couple loads of laundry and hung out on the line.
The second load I washed a tissue got washed too.
I hate when that happens!!
 It took me forever to pick all the little pieces off the clothes
and it was all over the laundry room too.

Our neighbor Ron stopped by to give us a couple of his
tomatoes from his garden.
Each tomato weighs a pound!!

 We went to the library in town to pick up a book that they put
aside for me.  (The book club book for October.)

Came back home and washed my jeep.
Last time I washed it and put it in the garage the very
first time we drove it, it rained.
Hopefully tomorrow the weather will be nice tomorrow.

The rest of the afternoon I puttered around and
we then went to Brenda's for pizza.
Half price pizza has started up again. 🙂  🍕

Hope your day was a happy one.
happyone 🥰

Town Walk

Drove the jeep to town again and got started walking at 7:00.
60 degrees, cloudy and looking like rain, and calm.
Sunrise 6:57

Parked by the town pond.
My walk around town was random with no route in my head at all.
Just walked all over the place.
I brought my umbrella and left it in the jeep.
Abut a half mile I felt a few rain drops so walked back to get it.
The drops never amounted to anything so walked back to the
jeep again and left it there.
Made a stop at the library and dropped a book down the slot.
Headed out to the industrial park but saw three dogs running around
up ahead so made a U turn and headed back to town.

Went up and down the side streets
around the ball park loop a couple of times and then up to the
cemetery on top of the hill.
Corn fields surround the cemetery and today I noticed a tractor
out in the field taking down the corn.
Most of the corn grown around town are feed for the animals.
Don't walk around the pond very often because the grass is usually wet,
no so today so walked around the pond.
Took a picture from the opposite side.
You can see the jeep there in the parking lot.
No one else out and about walking or running this Saturday.

On the way home just down the street from my house
I saw the Heron.  
It was on the side of the road near the stream.
I got to watch it take off flying.
What a beautiful sight.

Walked 6 miles
☁️     ☁️
We went out to do a few errands and then stayed home
the rest of the day.

 A mixed weather day here for us.
More clouds
and finally late afternoon we saw had sunshine

Put some hot Italian sausages in the slow cooker this morning.
Then for supper sauteed a bunch of bell peppers and onions
to go with the sausages and that was supper.
Ken likes to put them on a sub roll with sauce
but I like to eat it without the roll.

That's it for this day.
A happy day to you!
happyone 🥰
