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

Goodies from the auction

Barn down near the Drane House.  The picture of the horse and her baby that I posted the other day live there.

68 degrees when I walked this morning but it didn't feel that warm.  It was cloudy and a bit foggy in places.  Felt like rain but never did until later in the morning.
I walked the Farm Loop and around town.

I saw four deer in one of the fields.  They were all together and looked young.

Over at Farmer Bill's farm there were four young calves romping around playing and I watched them for a while. 

Cow Number 14 lives up the road a piece at another farm.  I've never met anyone who lives there yet.   Her calf was behind the bush.  After I passed by, Number 14 went back to eating the white flowers on the bush there.
Saturday's are quieter than during the week.  So nice to be out walking early in the morning.
I walked 6.3 miles

Over at the Fire House in Mc Henry there was an auction and right after breakfast we headed over there.  It was an auction to raise money for the new addition being added on the fire house.
One of the items we wanted and bid on was a 20 ton truck load of stone which would have come in handy at HT but it went for more that we wanted to spend.  We didn't get that but did get a few other items.  A microwave (for HT) a box of books, two outside lights, and a little table which I'm going to paint and put in the spare bedroom.
We got all of this for only $7.
Home this afternoon just puttering around the house.  It has been raining on and off and we even saw a little bit of the sun.

Hope you are all enjoying your Saturday.
A happy day to you.

Tomas - I'm thinking you meant to say walk instead of ride?
I walk every day -  no day off. : )  
Only some times in the winter when the weather is just too bad.
