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

I got mail

The Drane House
♡     ♡     ♡     ♡
62 degrees this morning with clouds and fog.  About 3 miles into my walk it rained for about 5 minutes which cooled me off.  The sun made an appearance once in a while too.

Dropped off a Netlix in the post office slot and then walked the Farm Loop.  Quite a few fields have corn starting to grow and it is the tallest in this field.
I spotted a deer hopping around in some long grasses.  I guess it leaped more than hopped but you would think it had springs on its feet.  It was quiet walking with fields on both sides of me listening to all the different birds singing and chirping away.  They always seem happy to me.

The horses Faith and Grace were down near the fence by the water and when I got near they walked over and I got to pet them.

Some more pretty weeds along the road.
When I got back to the main road I turned left instead of right and walked down the main road out of town for just a bit, then turned around and when I got back in town turned down by the  small industrial park along this road.
Then back to my neighborhood and walked on the road behind my house and then back home.
I walked 6.1 miles.

I was outside walking around the yard late this morning and went to get the mail.  Inside the mailbox was a box with my name on it. : )  I was happy to find a book, a bookmark and some homemade cookies from my blogger friend Karen, from Karen's Ramblings.  The cookies were all wrapped so carefully and they all got here without getting broken.  Oh and they are delicious!!  I've already eaten two of them. : )
Thank you so much Karen.  That was so nice of you to think of me. : )
You all should check out her blog, Karen's Ramblings.  All her cookies look professionally made and she gives recipes and directions on how to do it.  Karen makes it all look so easy.  The cookies HERE are just amazing and are my favorites.  Her cookies are all little works of art.  Somehow it seems a shame to eat them.

The book was one that Karen reviewed on her blog and I mentioned that it sounded good and that I would put in on my list.  Next thing I know she said she would mail the book to me.  So nice of her and to get the extra goodies too.  Super nice.  Blogging friends are so special.

Thanks again Karen.

After lunch we went out and made stopped in a bunch of different places doing errands.

Later after supper Ken is going to start up the tractor again and take up a little more sod in the back yard.  I'll keep you guessing what we are doing now until tomorrow.

So that's it for today.  Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )
