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

Raggedy Ann and Andy

It was cloudy, 25 degrees, and no wind this morning when I went on my walk.  I was headed over to the lake and then decided to go for a random walk along the paths instead.

I spotted a Red Tailed hawk high up in the trees.  There were a lot of deer around and I stopped counting after I saw a dozen.

There were quite a lot of people out along the paths as well.  Maybe everyone was out getting their walk in the morning because of the rain that was expected for later in the day.

At one point I looked off the path and saw Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy having a rest on a wall.  I walked over to them and took their picture. : )  They were made out of stone and I wondered who put them there.
I walked through a couple of parking lots looking for some coins but didn't find any.
Steps for my walk today were 12,983.
Drove over to the mill for the Tuesday morning knitting group.  I missed last week so it was nice to see my knitting friends again.  I made weave-it squares again and finished 5 of them.  I've been making them there because they are easy to make and talk at the same time.  There were 12 of us around the table today.  
The rain started just as I was walking to my car to go home.

I'm going to read some more of my book.  A rainy afternoon seems the perfect time for that. : )

A happy day to you.
Happyone : )

Vee -  The white bubble on the other side of the lake is a big tent over a concrete slab.  Bands play there in the summer and different organizations rent it for their events.  As I looked at the picture after I posted it, I had a feeling you were going to ask what that was! : )


  1. Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy making on appearance on your walk...that's so neat!!

  2. Never seen a raggedy ann and andy quite like that!
    Very interesting.

  3. Adorable Raggedy Ann and Andy! You are making such good progress with your knitting. How long is your rain expected to last?

  4. Hi Karen, The Raggedy Andy and Raggedy Ann are adorable. So neat that someone put them there. Hope people will leave them alone and just allow others to enjoy them!!!!

    We got a tiny bit of rain during the night (not too much) --but it has been cloudy and drizzly and quite chilly here all day.


  5. When I saw your title I thought we were going to be seeing a Raggedy Ann and Andy that you own. I was surprised to see you ran into them on your walk :). How cute they are.
    We've had a dreary, rainy, chilly day. I'm home from work and hoping to find time to read this evening under your afghan:). I agree... a perfect pastime for a rainy day.

  6. Ha! I certainly am the curious sort. Very interesting to find Mr. And Mrs. Raggegy out there...I'm terribly curious about them, too.

  7. Aren't you curious about how and why Ann and Andy appeared out in the woods? Sounds like a nice knitting time with your friends, topped off with an afternoon of reading! Perfect!

  8. I love the photo of Raggedy Ann and Andy. I do wonder how they got there.

  9. That is so cool! Creative people!

  10. Someone put a lot of work, into that sculpture. And then just left it out there?!? Amazing...

  11. Very good article. I absolutely love this site.
