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

Did you ever notice that when I can't think of a title, I just put the day of the week it is?  

I didn't expect such a response for my Cherry Hill post.  I'm not really doing such a big thing here, just visiting some folks.  I seem to get along with the older generation and I really like hearing their stories. Even though they are old, there is still a young person inside there.   Besides they all think of me as a kid.  : )

It warmed up again and this morning. 45 degrees and it was windy but the sun was out too.

I walked the Farm Loop the opposite way (I'm doing that more often lately).
But when I got to Spear Road I turned left and walked up there (and it was up) for about a mile.  Look how tall and skinny I look here.
Then turned around and then got to walk down hill on Spear to the Farm Loop road and then home.  Since I walked up Spear I didn't walk around town. 
It was such a peaceful walk and I enjoyed this walk more than usual.  Didn't see any people and only a couple of cars passed me.  Once I got back to the main road there were cars.

I walked 6.4 miles.

After breakfast I put a roast with some potatoes in the slow cooker and got supper going.  It will cook all day and I don't have to think about it.

This morning we went to, I think it's called Sun Valley Farms and walked around looking at all the different kinds of plants. 

While we were driving there I was talking non stop to Ken about how much I enjoyed my walk this morning and all the things I could see from high up on the road.  When I stopped talking Ken looked at me, smiled and said, "You act like you're seeing the world for the very first time and are excited about it."  I thought that was such a nice thing for him to say to me.

I came home with this pretty plant and will plant it outside up by the shed in the back yard.
I also got some petunia seeds and will plant them in a couple of planters which I'm sure once they are flowering will end up on a blog post.

I took a picture going past one of the ski slopes and you can see there is still just a little bit of snow on it yet.  There are a couple more down the road that have about the same amount of snow.  
While we were out we stopped at Subway and had lunch. 
On the way home it clouded up, got dark and then came the rain.  Good thing we planned on visiting the nursery in the morning.

I've been sewing some more of those weave-it squares together and will be finished probably by tomorrow.

Home the rest of the day and I plan on getting some reading done and oh yes, eating that pot roast that smells awfully good right about now.

Hope you're having some happy times on this Friday.

People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us.

Three Happy Things
  1. My especially nice walk this morning
  2. Ken, who always makes me feel special
  3. A pretty new plant 


  1. Great photos today!! The flower you bought is so pretty!

  2. You have such a great attitude - that is why I visit you every day! Enjoy the weekend!

  3. Ken has it just right. The dahlias are beautiful and the countryside is beautiful. I climbed a small mountain today so I appreciate what a mile-long walk up a mountain entails. I'd never make it!

  4. I must admit I have not noticed that you sometimes use the day for your title. I'll have to start paying better attention.
    I don't use my crock pot nearly enough, but when I do I love that feeling of having dinner figured out so early in the day.
    Your new flower is very pretty.

  5. There's nothing better than a spouse who affirms us and loves us for what we are..Thanks be to God!!!!!

    Glad you are enjoying your new home and your daily walks...

    Your dinner sounds wonderful...


  6. What a wonderful day!! and Ken is very insightful.

  7. You are humble - you ARE doing big things there, you have such a kind heart!
