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

At the County Fair

A few degrees warmer this morning at 55.  A mixture of sun and clouds as I walked around town on my one and only mapped out route.  I like having a route mapped out because then I can just walk and enjoy what I'm seeing instead of thinking about where I should walk next!  I'll eventually have a few routes to choose from.  It is kind of hard finding new routes though because there are just so many roads around here.  I could get in the car and drive to one of the parks but I like just walking out the door.  The walks at the parks will be extra walks. : )

A man stopped and asked for directions this morning.  I watched him go up and down the road a couple of times and then he stopped to ask me.  He wanted to know how to get back to Baltimore!!

I saw the woman from yesterday walking again, still listening to her music.

I found another penny.  : )
I walked 6 miles and took 11,517 steps.
I got back to my Body Electric exercise today.  I'm sure I'll be a bit sore tomorrow!  Still looking for that one CD and I've pretty much run out of places to look.  There are a couple of other things that I can't find and I'll probably find all them in the same place but who knows when!

The county fair/carnival is being held this week and this afternoon after lunch we went to the fair grounds and spent four and half hours there.
 I liked looking at all the animals.

There were also horses, goats, and cows.  We sat on bleachers for a while and watched young people lead pigs around while they were judged.  That was a first for us. : )
There were also exhibit buildings where people entered things they had grown or made.  There were also quilts to admire.
There was a section where you could enter photographs.  I'm thinking maybe next year I'll enter a picture or two of my own.

The carnival part of the fair, had all kinds of food, rides and games.
It was a cloudy day which was actually nice because it didn't get too hot.  We had a fun time and I got a lot of extra steps today walking around.  We are going to go back again on Saturday in the evening to watch the demolition derby.

Hope you got to do something fun today too.
happyone  : )
If you have good thoughts,
they will shine out of your face like sunbeams
and you will always look lovely.

  1. I'm glad you're at a point where you can enjoy your surroundings and not have to work all the time. The fair/carnival looks like lots of fun. That was a beautiful day. MJ

  2. The fair/carnival looks like it was a lot of fun! I totally think you should enter some photos into the fair next year! You sure take some awesome ones - like the one in this post! Beautiful! See you tomorrow!

  3. That looks like a fun day! I hope that you will enter some of your photos. They're great ones. If you keep finding a penny every day...

  4. What fun going to the Fair! We love to go to the one here. My husband enjoys talking to the beekeepers.

  5. That's a beautiful sunrise. Love the bunny! Maybe one morning that woman won't have her headphones on :)

  6. That looks like a fun way to spend the day. When our boys were little we liked to go to the state fair.
    I think you should enter some of your photos. There are so many good ones to choose from.
    With regards to your recent comment, that is so sweet of you to want to knit something for our new baby. I can't imagine you having any free time for that sort of thing right now

  7. We have markets like that in Norway too - every fall.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
