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

Good Fence

Two Webs, Two Fences
I'm linking up with Good Fences. This is my Good Fence #5.  You can post one of your own or check out more fences HERE.
✼     ✼     ✼     ✼
A foggy morning walk today and the temperature was 58 degrees.  I got damp walking in the fog.

Walked half way to Happy Trails and then around town.

Stopped to talk to Joe and another worker.  They were trying to find a water leak up at one of the churches on main street.

I didn't see anyone else out and surprisingly I didn't see any rabbits today.

One of the old buildings a block off the main street looked about to fall down so now it is being taken down.
By the time I got back home, the fog had burned off and the sun was shining.
I walked 6.2 miles.
✼     ✼     ✼     ✼
I left Ken working on the stone patio and I went out to lunch with some of my friends from church.  We met at Ledo's and I really had a nice time.  We are planning on a bowling outing next time.  : )

I have found a job that I can do on the stone patio to help Ken.  In-between the stones that Ken puts down we are putting crushed stone.  My job is to crush stones into little pieces and then fill in the cracks. 
Taking a rest from the stone crushing I sat perfectly still about 4 feet away from the bird feeders.  It didn't take the birds long to get used to me being there and soon they were coming and going.  How nice it was to see the birds up close.  Too bad I didn't have my camera.

That's it for today.
Hope you're having a good day and you smiled often.

Three Thankful Things Today
  1. Lunch out with friends
  2. Backyard birds
  3. That I found a job to help with the patio


  1. i like your two-fer shot. :) crushing stones - hard work made better by birds!

  2. I love your picture of the fences and the webs! Very nice! I'm not even sure I would be much help crushing stones.:-) It is nice to have lunch out with friends. That is something I really enjoy!

  3. Love the feel of those foggy morning shots.

  4. Cool shot of the webs on the fence.. I love the foggy cemetery scene.. Sounds like a great day, I love Ledo Pizza.. Have a great evening..

  5. Love the cobweb and fence in the first shot.

  6. That fence shot is great...very artistic. It seems you had a great day, especially spending time with friends relaxing.
    Looking forward to the finished patio.


  7. I love the foggy shots and the webs in the fence - just beautiful.

  8. The spider web picture is beautiful. Personally, I think Springbok really made a mistake not choosing your pictures for their new puzzle. Have a wonderful evening :)

  9. the web on the fence is beautiful.

  10. What a great fence shot for the challenge - very nice capture!
    The headstones in the cemetery look really old; nice shot in the mist.
    Looks like it's a good idea that old building is being torn down.
    If crushing those stones don't make a person tired, I don't know what will! :D


  11. Awesome photo of the cobwebs! Cemeteries always look neat in the fog.

  12. Wow, great capture of the spider webs with your fences!

  13. Sounds like you had a great walk, although a tad damp from the fog. Stone crushing sounds like hard work but with a nice reward, the finished patio.

  14. that double web is a first for me and is absolutely gorgeous... what perfect shot for good fence Thursday.

  15. Be a bit careful wielding that hammer...I got a pretty bad tendinitis when we were shaping rocks and roman pavers by hand for our sidewalk... which has now...after 15 years of good service...been replaced by exposed aggregate cement...

  16. The cob web photo is amazing.

  17. Those spider webs are amazing and I love the foggy photo! Enjoy your walk today! Hugs!

  18. Oh wow the cobwebs and the fences were wonderful. Loved them. Crushing stone sounds like fun but also a lot of work. I bet it's going to look great when it's all finished.

  19. Beautiful cobweb, I especially love cobwebs with dew on them. They look like jewels then.

  20. Great spider web. Amazing how much water it's holding.
