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.

A work day

🐝     🐝
A mostly cloudy morning with just a little sun and 64 degrees.
My walk today was a random one all around town on no particular route.
I did peek in the window of the soon to be bakery like I said I would and 
didn't see any sign of the tiles anymore but all the dry wall is up now.

Saw George out walking and stopped to talk to him for a bit.
Kathy was out walking too.

I think I might have posted this gravestone before but it has been a long time.
It always makes me smile.
You will have to click on it to read it but at the bottom it says,
"Neener, neener, neener
I'm in heaven and you're not."
 Walked 6 miles
🚶     🚶
After breakfast we headed out to church at 8:30 for a work day
doing Fingerprints.  
Worked from 9:00 - 6:00 and we got nearly 5000 Romans books assembled,
stapled, cut and packed up.  
At one point there were 20 of us there working but at the end of the 
day there were just 4 of us finishing up.
A lot of work, but fun too and we always enjoy it.
What a blessing it is to be part of this ministry.

That took up the day and it is nice to be home now and
I'm about to have a bit of ice cream and watch another episode
of Call the Midwife.
Might not have time to visit you all tonight but will tomorrow.

Hope your day was a happy one.

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes:
but the Lord pondereth the hearts.

Black Eyed Susan's

Some black eyed Susan's along my walk this morning.
🐝     🐝
This morning when I went for my walk it was sunny with a cool temperature of 54
degrees and what a beautiful morning it was.

Walked straight through town and then around both cemeteries.
Then headed up Sale Barn Road a ways.
Back to the main road, down toward Happy Trails a bit,  turned around
came back to town and walked around the ball park loop.
Before I knew it my walk was over and I was back home again.

Walking past the soon to be bakery I saw workers inside doing something.
Tomorrow morning I'll take a peek inside. 
Other than that it was pretty quiet around town.

Walked 6.2 miles
🚶     🚶
We left this morning in the truck and towing the trailer with
the tractor on it we took it to the Kubota dealer down the road in WV.
It is leaking some fluid and needs a new part.
We have to leave it there for a few days while the work gets done.
Next we stopped in at church and got things set up for Fingerprints
which is tomorrow.  Nice to get set up the day before and we all can get
right to work when we get there tomorrow.

Picked up a quick lunch while we were out and then went to Walmart
and did our food shopping.

Got things put away and then I made some Welsh Cookies.

I had made a Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad this morning 
with cucumbers that I just picked from the garden.  
We had it for supper with hot dogs that Ken grilled outside.

Then we ended the day going to the mid week prayer meeting at church.

Home now for an episode of Call the Midwife.

It's been a busy but good day.
Life is Good
A happy day to you.
happyone  💗

I noticed some geese came back to the pond by the Drane house.
🌾     🌾
55 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds this morning when I walked.
A  beautiful cool summer morning.
Walked the Farm Loop.
A couple I've never seen before was walking there too.
I told them I'd never seen anyone else walk along here and they told
me they do every day.  I was a bit earlier than usual so we just probably
walk it at different times.

Back in town, I walked around one of the cemeteries a couple of times with Kathy.
I walked around the ball park loop and then home.

Walked 6.2 miles
🚶     🚶
It was a cloudy morning but I did a load of laundry and hung it outside
anyway.  Got the the lawn mowed this morning.  It was a bit
wet but it really needed to be mowed.
Also got a little more weeding done in the morning.
Then it was time for lunch.

We went bowling today.  It had been a few weeks so it was nice to
get back to it again and had a fun time.  There were 7 of us.
My games today were 136, 152, and 152 in that order.

This sun flower is one of the many that are in our yard.
All 4 of the blooms that you see are all on the same flower and there
are more that you can't see and some that haven't bloomed yet.
The day ended up being cloudy and the temperature never made it out
of the 60's.

A happy day to you.
