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

Home Today

It looked like rain this morning so I took along my umbrella, but it never rained, so it just became a walking stick. : )
We haven't been setting the alarm any more now that Ken doesn't have to get up and go to work but most days I still wake up at 6:00.  Today though I didn't wake up till 7:30!!!! so got a late start on my walk.

I saw quite a few school buses around picking up kids and holding up traffic but by the time I made it over to the school, the kids were all in school and traffic was back to normal.

Walking down the road I took this picture and put an arrow where I figured my house is.  I'm about 2 1/2 miles away from home here.
Just another picture of some cows.  For some reason I'm fascinated with cows.  I'll have to meet a farmer one of these days and maybe be able to meet one.  They are curious creatures and seem gentle for being so big.
Just a shortish walk today.  Since it was late and I didn't eat yet, I was really hungry so headed home sooner to eat breakfast.

I walked 4.8 miles - 9,468 steps.
The eBay auction for our trailer ended today at 12:00 and unfortunately it didn't sell.

I made some chocolate chip cookies today for the first time since we moved here.  It's a good oven - exactly 10 minutes baking time and they came out perfectly.

It's been a cloudy day with rain showers so we've just been at home.  Sometimes it's nice to have a stay at home day. : )

Hope your Tuesday is a good one.
happyone : )

what we really are,

  1. How true that quote from J.K.Rowling is!

    Glad you've had a good day. We haven't set our alarm clock since we've retired, either, and we seem to awaken most mornings no later than 6:30.

    We need one of those cameras set out at our garden to see what is having fun with our corn!:-)

  2. Would you mind shipping me some of those chocolate chip cookies? Please and thank you :)

  3. You must have needed your rest. A rainy day is good once in a while. Guess we are going to get more rain again. Nothing I can do about it so I might as well make the best of it. It would be a good time to clean the garage. No, there is never a good time for that.

  4. I LOVE those MOOS too :) Sometimes it's good to sleep in :)

  5. Looking forward to some chocolate chip cookies! MJ

  6. It is great that you can leave that alarm clock off!
