Books I've Read In 2018

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 Sunbeam

When I was out walking this morning I saw the sun rays shining through the trees
and it brought to mind a little chorus we used to sing in 
Sunday School when I was a little girl.

 🎶  Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam  🎶 

1. Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,
To shine for him each day;
In ev'ry way try to please him,
At home, at school, at play.

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
Jesus wants me for a sunbeam.
A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
I'll be a sunbeam for him.

2. Jesus wants me to be loving
And kind to all I see,
Showing how pleasant and happy
His little one can be.

Words by Nellie Talbot
Music by Edwin O. Excell, 1851 - 1921

A Blessed Sunday to all.
Thanks for stopping by.

For Sale

 No rain today, just sun, a temperature 51 and no wind - beautiful.

Drove past a couple of deer and some rabbits on the way to town.
A routine walk around both cemeteries, the ball park, and to the
Dollar General where I turned around, and walked back through town.

Today the boots were sitting just outside the fence in the corner by
the cemetery. They made it OUT of the cemetery this time.

Up ahead the building on the left is where I waited out one of the
heavy rain downpours yesterday.

A man named Joe owns the building and I met him while walking 
when we first moved here.  
He worked for the town then and I used to see him every morning 
driving around in his truck.
The building was at one time (before we moved here) an antiques shop 
and it is still packed full with of all kinds of old stuff.
Many years ago it was Rosie's - a general store.
I've heard people speak of Rosie fondly and missed the store when it was closed.

Saw Rebecca out walking Leo but far way from me.

Walked 6 miles

🙂    🌤    🚶‍♀️

Made our weekly trip to the Dollar General in town after breakfast
to use our coupon which we forgot and left on the kitchen table.
BUT we mentioned we forgot it and was given the discount anyway.
Another nice thing about living in a small town.

Between our house and the farm with the escaping cows is another
piece of property which is owned by people who only come up
once or twice a year.
We noticed a For Sale sign up at the end of their driveway.

A quarter mile up the driveway sits a cute cabin in the woods.
Took a walk up there this afternoon to take the picture.

A nice afternoon for walking so took another walk around Happy Trails.
We've been seeing a big pileated woodpecker flying around lately.
I'm thinking that maybe he is the one who made the holes in the tree
which I came across on my walk.

Nice to sit on the front porch this afternoon for a while and read.

Thanks for stopping by.
A happy day to you.
