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

A Rainy Day

40 degrees this morning and just cloudy when I left on my walk.  It felt like rain and sure enough after awhile there were periods of light drizzle.  I didn't have my umbrella so stayed around town just in case it started raining hard.  I got a bit damp but not wet.
On the way back from one of the cemeteries I walked around the town pond.  No one there fishing today.  There are a lot of red winged black birds by the pond.
I saw Joe driving around in the town truck checking things out in town and he stopped to say hi.  Saw bus driver number 10 three different times coming and going out of town. 

It started raining a little harder by the time I was walking down the main street here in town and just walked home.  My house is up the road about 1/2 mile.
Walked 5.8 miles.

Yesterday afternoon was a beautiful spring day.  I went for a little walk in the afternoon and then sat out in the yard on my swing for a little while.  I liked the tree branch shadows on the grass here.  Notice how the grass is turning green again.

Stayed home today while it rained and did the daily chore routine and then just did some stuff around the house.  I'm basically a home body and enjoy these days at home.

Ken has been in the basement playing with his new train locomotive that he got Saturday.  It has sound and is really cool.  He's called me downstairs a couple of times for me to see it. : )

This week is Revival Week at church and after supper we will head to church.  Its a fun time at church but also makes you stop and take a good look at yourself and where you stand with God. 

The rain seems to have stopped now and it's just cloudy.
Hope all is well with you and your day is a happy one.

Three Happy Things Today
  1. Sitting inside in a dry house watching the rain
  2. That Ken is happy with his new toy
  3. Knowing that God loves and cares for me


  1. The little town you are living in is beautiful! It is wonderful to see green grass again.

  2. I've been a bit behind in my blogging rounds. I just read about your Saturday which sounds just like lots of fun! Yay for finding more plates for your kitchen!

    We had rain here overnight. Now the wind is predicted to become a factor in our weather into the evening!

    Did you wear those new rain shoes on your walk today? It sounds like you have made good use of a rainy day.

    Enjoy your evening at church.

  3. Oh you'll be mowing that grass in no time! Do you remember how? =D

    It's supposed to rain here tomorrow and so I am wondering if I shall walk as you do or stay high and dry. LOL

  4. We had rain here today too. I did a lot of reading :).
    Your little town does look like such a nice place to walk and wave to the bus drivers and other friendly folks.
    Your grass sure is greening up nicely. Glad that you were able to get out there and enjoy it.

  5. Your revival sounds great! It is always good to have the opportunity to review our standing with God. I also love #3 on your gratitude list. We sure could use some rain here. Please send some out west! :-)

  6. Rainy one minute - sun the next....I guess that's spring for you :)
