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

Maybe this time!!

Well, another morning, another walk. : )  It was 42 degrees, no wind and when sunrise came along sunny too.  I walked up the hill on the road behind my house and went to say hi to Lisa's ponies.  While up that way I saw 6 deer.  Walked near home until the sky started glowing and then headed up the main street and walked part of the farm loop.  Then turned up Spear Rd. (where that strange looking tree is) and walked to the end of of the road.  Never walked to the end before.  Picture is of the new part of the road I've never walked.
There was another farm at the end of the road and there I saw a cow, a chicken and a llama together in a penned area and snapped their picture.  I really liked the picture so I ended up putting it on my photo blog.  For those of you who don't follow that blog and care to take a look at it, it is HERE.  As I was taking their picture the farm dog came along and ran me off so I probably won't stop for any more pictures there!

Just a couple more pictures I took walking along.

After walking to the end of Spear I turned around and walked back home.  It would have been too far if I had walked all of the farm route too.

A farmer driving by in a white pick up truck asked me if I needed a ride, but he asked me in a unique way.  He said, "Are you out exercising or could use a couple of steps in the truck to work?"  I said, "No thanks, I'm out exercising and enjoying the morning." 

I walked 6.6 miles - 12,726 steps.
Sunrise 7:10
Sunset 7:06
 We went out this morning to the Produce/Candy store and got Halloween candy.  We were told that lots of kids come by so we are prepared.  Also got a nice big pumpkin that is now sitting on the front porch. 

I also got a few strange looking gourds and have put them in the boxes that I've put in the foyer.  I thought about what Vee and Deb said about putting seasonal decorations in the boxes and have decided to do just that.  When I finish putting the fall things in it, I'll post another picture.  I never decorate for the seasons (except Christmas) so this will be fun and new for me.  All because of blogging!!! : )

This evening we will once again try to go to a demolition derby.  The other two times it has been rained out.  BUT today is another beautiful day and O% change of rain so we just might get to see one tonight.

Hope your Friday is a happyone.
happyone  : )
Everyone chases after happiness,
not noticing that happiness
is right at their heels.

  1. I am absolutely loving that fall foilage in these pics. Quite beautiful! I can't wait til' the leaves start turning here :)

  2. A Llama? Wow, that is so cool. You see the most interesting things on your walks.
    I think your boxes will look really cute decorated for fall and will also make a nice welcome in the entrance of your home.
    Hope you have better luck with the derby this time.

  3. Sounds as if you have a new, fun adventure every single day. Well, all except for the farmyard dog. Yikes! Don't forget that we want to see the boxes decorated for fall.

  4. I love the picture of the farm animal friends. I get your new entry way boxes will look oh so festive. The demolition derby really sounds like a fun Friday night date! Enjoy!

  5. You see the most interesting things on your walks. The photos are beautiful!

  6. What a very nice way of the Farmer to ask if you needed a ride...or not. Love the way he said that.

  7. Have you ever seen a "swan neck" gourd? We saw some in a roadside stand on the way back from Cape May. They are pretty neat!
