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

What will he come home with?!!!

Back home and back to my walking paths.  I thought about walking around the lake but since it is Saturday and crowded with all the runners I walked my connect the path route instead.
The paths have really greened up this past week while we were gone and the beautiful red bud trees are in bloom now.   I think they are such a pretty color.
It was a bit chilly at 45 degrees and a bit windy.  Glad that all the rain from last night stopped and the sun came out.

I didn't see any deer but did see a red tailed hawk fly right over my head and then land on a tree branch.  I was lucky to get this picture of him.
There were a few dog walkers out, a couple runners and I stopped to talk to Petey and John just about in the spot where I took the picture of the path.

It was a lovely morning for walking.
I walked 6.2 miles.

Ken left at about the same time as I did and went to a farm equipment auction.  I thought about going but wanted to walk and had a few things I needed to get done around the house after being gone all week.
He thought he'd be back by lunch time but lunch time passed and I got hungry so I ate a baked potato and peas.
Ken called me at 1:40 to tell me he wouldn't be home for lunch - he was having a good time and didn't realize lunch had come and gone.  I asked if he got any good stuff and his answer was,
"Oh, yes!!.  I won't tell you now but will surprise you when I get home.  There is some good stuff in the last aisle I'm waiting for so won't be home for a couple more hours."  So now here I sit wondering what kinds of good stuff and what on earth will he come home with later!! : )

So till then I'm going to finish sewing up the last few squares to the latest baby blanket and then read.

Hope your Saturday is a good one.
Give your smile to a stranger and more than likely it will be returned to you.
Happyone : )
Our Lord, our God,
deliver us from the fear of what might happen
and give us the grace to enjoy what now is
and to keep striving after what ought to be.
~ Peter Marshall


  1. Oh, my! Be ready for a surprise!

    We occasionally spy a red-tailed hawk here, but not too often at all, and I never have my camera with me. I don't think he perches anywhere near, though.

  2. Now that sounds exciting! Have your camera ready. ☺

  3. That does sound interesting. Let us know please.

  4. Will we have to wait till Monday to find out what he came home with???

  5. Well now we are all wondering what he brought home! I love the springtime green and blossoms on your trail!

  6. I love surprises....
    I thought about you today. A friend posted on facebook that she was so sad that her neighbors were moving and it was so hard to say goodbye. I gave her a cyber hug and told her something you told me about 28 years ago...If you don't blink, the tears won't come out....and I also shared with her that 28 years later and thanks to technology, we are blogging buddies. Love you Karen, always and forever my friend! Pam


  7. Farm equipment auction! Oh oh! -grin-

    "Auntie" just stoppin' by, although she isn't ready yet...

  8. I hope you enjoyed your surprise. Great picture of the hawk. I love them! I also love seeing the redbud. Art
