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

Just another day : )

30 degrees this morning. There was a slight breeze and the sun was out.  I walked first to the library and dropped off a couple of books in the book slot and then went to the ATM at the bank.  Made a quick stop back home to drop off the money and then had a random walk around town.
Stopped at the fence down by the Drane house where a couple of horses I know live and saw that there are now three of them.  Sometimes one of them comes over by me when I walk by like today and I let him smell my hand and then pet him. 

At the edge of town there is another farm where the white cow lives.  Haven't petted him yet because he has never come close enough to the fence.  I did take another picture of him though.
I saw a Kingfisher over by the little pond.
Lone Chicken has a strange mixture of food today, french fries, pasta and what looked like sweet potato fries.  

There was a couple taking a walk down the main road in town who I said 'good morning' to and I saw Lisa a couple of times.

Here's another view of the cute little house that I took a picture of the other day.  I'd love to take a look inside of it. 
I walked around the two cemeteries and then headed back home.
And that was the end of my walk.
I walked 6 miles - 11,840 steps.
Sunrise: 6:50
Sunset: 5:11
The sun rises and sets 10 minutes later here than where I used to live.
Got a bit more house cleaning done today but still haven't finished.  I worked on my cross stitch some more late this afternoon before supper.

There's still cheese cake left and I'm not sure whether I want that or ice cream for my snack tonight.  I would LIKE to have  both : ) but I'll just pick one.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Be happy.

Be thankful for what you have;
you'll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don't have,
you will never, ever have enough.
~Oprah Winfrey


  1. That is certainly a cute little house! I'd bet it's as neat as a pin!

    You have great self-control to choose between ice cream and cheesecake! I love them both!

    I like the quote by Oprah Winfrey.

    Enjoy your evening!

  2. I think the little red house is so cute. I would like to see inside it too!

  3. Such a nice, neat looking little house. I would like to see inside too! Sounds like a simply wonderful day. Great quote too! See you tomorrow.

  4. I like the red house and the white cow, and Oprah's advice.

  5. Oprah is right. Enjoyed reading about your walk today. Mary Jo

  6. That red house is so darn cute. I wouldn't be surprised if someday you met the owners on one of your walks.
    I will stay tuned to see which one your chose. I'm guessing it will be cheesecake.

  7. We have cows behind our house. They always watch as we come and go! Just found your blog. Love it!
