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 sunflower

Picture of the Day
Late blooming sunflower in my yard.
It is on the small side but has lots of buds about to open.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤

50 degrees this morning with a mix of sun and clouds.  A completely random walk today just walking wherever my feet happened to take me. 

In the picture I'm coming down from the cemetery by the Drane house.  The church up ahead is on the main road in town.

There was a man and a dog walking around town and they must have been on a random walk too because we passed each other 4 times.

An uneventful walk but a good one never the less. 
I walked 6.2 miles.
Found a penny.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
We had planned on going kayaking but rain was expected so we decided not to go.  Ken went up to HT again and I stayed home. 

I finally got around to washing my car.  Nice to have a nice clean car again.

As it turned out it never did rain and we could have gone kayaking.  The clouds are moving in now and maybe we'll get that rain tonight.

We will be going to church this evening and I will find out how Betty is doing.

Hope your day had been a happy one.
happyone : )
 If you don't think every day is a good day,
just try missing one.

Three Thankful Things Today
  1. A clean car 
  2. Sunflowers
  3. Time to sit in my swing and read


  1. I love sunflowers, beautiful photo.. Sitting on the swing and reading sounds like a relaxing time.. Enjoy your evening.

  2. I am thankful for every morning I am able to wake up and greet the day! Life truly is a blessing!

    That is a gorgeous sunflower! Ours are on the wane.

    Have a good evening!

  3. Your new haircut is very becoming!!!!!

  4. Another beautiful day :)

    Just out of curiosity, it seems that the town you live in in quite small, is that the case?
    Our town has about 6000 residents... small town.

  5. A true optimist washes her car on a day with rain in the forecast :).
    Beautiful shot of the sunflower.

  6. Such a pretty sunflower!


  7. That's one perfect sunflower you've got there! We haven't had any rain in California in a long, long time. Send some our way!

  8. Your sunflower shot is lovely and if you stare at the center long enough it starts to move.
    I love your walking areas, they are so pretty.
