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

Bananas and strawberries

More low hanging clouds around and 50 degrees this morning for my walk.  By mid morning though the sun was out in a pretty blue sky.  Walked my usual route.  The farm there in the picture is the one where the chickens are always around.
Along one of the roads I walk there is a little building with a sign on it that says Chlorine.  Not sure what it is for.
The cows were nowhere to be seen today.  It's nice that they have such a large area to live in that they can just disappear where I can't even see them.

I am so thankful for the beautiful area I live in and for being able to take a walk every morning. : )
I walked 6.3 miles - 12,462 steps.
We had a some bananas that were too brown to eat and I did what a lot of people do when that happens, I made banana bread.  I have a cookbook I bought a while ago but have never made anything in it until today.  Looked up the Banana Bread recipe in it.  The recipe called for a jar of maraschino cherries.  I didn't have any but I did have some strawberries so I added them instead.  It turned out quite well.  I ate that piece you see cut in the picture.  The recipe is HERE if you would like see it.
I'll just eat a little less chili for supper or maybe not any chips with it.  : ) 

Hope you are enjoying your day and that you smiled often.

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.

  1. Great idea to add strawberries to that bread! I'm sure it made for a very tasty snack.

  2. Strawberry banana bread? Ohhhh that sounds delish. Walking in cooler temps sounds wonderful, too.

  3. That bread really looks good! Your nice cool temps sound so nice. I am getting tired of Arizona summer. A bit of autumn would be nice. See you tomorrow.

  4. I love the silos in the distance on that farm :)

  5. I would imagine strawberries would taste very good in the banana bread! I certainly would never have thought to add them.

    Looks like a beautiful place for your walk. It would be fun to see cows on a regular basis. Your blog header image tickles me!


  6. My mouth is watering. I have a friend who despises both bananas and strawberries (how could anyone) so I will have to jokingly tell him that I will bake him some of your bread. Art


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