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 warm morning with a temperature of 54 degrees.  There was a little sun but it was mostly cloudy.  I got to wear my tights and shorts - no layering today.

Walked the farm loop.  The road on the left is where I leave the main road and start around the loop.
Walking past Farmer Bill's place I see that someone or something has crashed through part of his fence.  Just up ahead there on the left is the road that I take to continue around the loop.
It was a nice warm morning and listening to the birds singing their morning songs, makes me think the spring really has arrived for good now.

I saw a rabbit on the side of the road but it had been killed in an unusual way.  His body was all there and there was a clump of fur but his head was gone.  I was going to take a picture but it was just too creepy.   I wonder what happened to the poor thing.
Also so a live happy bunny too.

I walked around the two cemeteries too and then home.
I walked 6.2 miles.

I got home to an empty house after walking because Ken was down at the MVA starting the process for getting a bus drivers license.  It is quite a process but once he completes it,  he will then be able to drive the church bus.

No work outside today,  it started raining and ended up being a pretty dreary day.  But we need the rain for those spring flowers.

I started another book.  This is another in the Kate Burkholder series, Breaking Silence by Linda Castillo.  Number 3 of 4.  I've already read 1,2, and 4.  Very good murder mysteries but the crimes are gruesome and not for the faint of heart.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow.  It's gonna be a fun day. : )

Hope your day is filled with happy things.

Art - You're hiking right now so I'm too late to answer your question.
But, I would have left early and ate at MacDonald's.
I like their oatmeal and fruit. : )


  1. I always love a good murder mystery! Hope you have a GREAT Day today!!

  2. Oh, that poor bunny. I hope he wasn't the Easter Bunny.
    It truly does sound like spring is in the air in your corner.
    Hope you are having FUN by now.

  3. Our cat brought in the Easter Bunny one Easter!

    Aren't you glad you don't have to add so many layers for walking now? Spring has arrived!
