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

Around the Farm Loop

No snow and no frigid temperatures this morning so I put on my walking shoes and walked around the farm loop.  You can't imagine how good it felt to be outside for my morning walk.  The temperature was 30 degrees and just a slight wind every once in a while.
I got to see the sunrise.
The farm loop road was clear and dry with just a little bit of ice here and there.  No problem to just walk around those spots.  The roads in town were very icy in most places so I just stayed on the roads that were good.  All the melting from yesterday just froze up everything during the night.

I passed by Lone Chicken and friends and said good morning and one of them came out the door.  As you can see they really can't come out of their coop.  At least now though the snow isn't above the door and they can take a peek out.
I didn't see anyone else walking or running which was surprising because this is the first time in quite a while that the weather was nice. The usual bus drivers were out and waved to me though.  They must have been wondering where I've been.

 I always like the shapes in ice puddles.  
Then I like to walk on them and break them up.
I walked my usual 6 miles.

After breakfast we went down to LaVale to Walmart to do some shopping.  This Walmart is about 10 miles farther than the one we usually go to but it is bigger and always has everything on our list so we don't have to make another stop.

We stopped at Wendy's and had some lunch - baked potatoes with cheese.

After unloading the truck and putting everything away we finished the puzzle we've been working on.  Didn't take a picture yet but will, and post it tomorrow.  

Then I finally got around to doing my house cleaning for the day.

So that's  been my day so far.
It has been a good one.

  3. I am so glad that the weather permitted you to walk outside today. I really enjoy the photos that you take on your walks!

  5. I get the distinct feeling that you're thankful for your morning walk.....!
