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

Spring is back

Got up a bit late this morning and didn't start walking until a little after 7:00.  It was 25 degrees and sunny with just a slight breeze.  Walked to the library first and dropped a book in the drop off and then to the post office to mail two Netflix back.  Then I walked the farm loop.
One of the farm houses I pass has a bunch of old bikes all over the front porch.  The last couple of times I have passed by, one of the roosters was sitting on the handle bars of a bike.  Snapped this picture of him.  He was also being very vocal.
Farther down the road I pass by some trees and again there were lots of Robins in the trees.  Most flew away when I got near but this one stayed.
Walked around town but didn't see any one else out.
I walked 6.1 miles.

By afternoon there were just patches of snow here and there and the temperature was 50 so I went outside and cut down more rose bushes and raked things up a bit.  I was out for a couple of hours.  Once again it seems like spring. : )

I'm planning on doing some reading, and later, as usual we will watch a bit of television and have a snack.  Probably ice cream - vanilla fudge.

Hope all is well in your part of the world and your day was sunny and bright.

Karen - Garrett County is it's own state when is comes to weather. : )
Deb - I carry the tracts with me and hand them out whenever the opportunity arises.  I've put some in returned library books, leave them at restaurants, or just hand them out to people when the times seems right.


  1. That rooster cracks me up! It looks like he is considering taking a bike ride!:-)

    Yes, it is time for spring to arrive! Se had sunshine and 71 degrees here today!

    Love the sound of that ice cream! Enjoy!

  2. Oh, I do like seeing the robins. Makes me realize for sure that spring is really here!

  3. You got a much better picture of the robin than I did! Looks nice in your header.

  4. Good for you on handing out those tracts! We all need to share the good news of Jesus Christ and not be shy about it! Thanks for being a great example about this...you are just my role model for so many things :-) Glad that spring is back in your area. Have a good week!

  5. That rooster is a hoot! Hope that this is the last of the snow and then you get steady progress on spring from here on out!

  6. Glad you are getting some spring. We are too.. We even got outside and spread some mulch today.

    Love the photo of the rooster--acting like he is the king of the world... ha

    Have a great day tomorrow.

  7. That picture of the rooster on the bike is epic!!!

  8. Great picture of the bike riding rooster. Now that's something you don't see every day.
    It does look like Spring in your photos. The sky is so blue and pretty. We are supposed to reach 80 today. Saw a few people out in shorts... I wasn't one of them, however.


Hello my friend.

I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
