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 rainy Thursday

Picture of the Day
A Goldfinch stopped on the stones by the pond to take a drink.
Couldn't get the camera out fast enough to catch him drinking, 
but still was happy to get him sitting there.
Picture not that great - taken through the kitchen window and zoomed in a bit.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤

65 degrees this morning, cloudy and not the breeze from yesterday but a good strong wind.
It felt like it would rain any moment but it never did while I was out walking.

Another random walk for me all over the place.  Less activity than yesterday.  Only saw one other person out walking their dog.

The man working on rebuilding his shed/garage has made a little more progress.
I walked 6.3 miles.
Sunrise: 6:55
Sunset:  7:32

Ken did more work on the stone patio putting down the stones he collected from HT yesterday until the rain drove him inside.

I've been puttering around the house and getting the last bit of housework done for the week. 

A happy day to you.

Lord, where we are wrong, make us willing to change;
where we are right, make us easy to live with.

Three Thankful Things Today
  1.  My old comfortable jeans
  2.  Out for pizza night
  3.  Fresh basil out of the garden


  1. The goldfinch looks so cute on your waterfall. I've noticed a lot of hummingbirds visiting the plants and feeder around ours. I never have much luck taking pictures of them as they are so speedy. By the time I get the camera focused, they're long gone.
    Can't beat a comfortable pair of jeans or fresh basil.

  2. That is such a pretty goldfinch! I never see them here. Love the Peter Marshall quote.

  3. The Goldfinch on your waterfall is exciting. I am looking forward to more photos of your lovely visitor on the waterfall.

  4. How sweet to see the Goldfinch and watch him drink. I enjoyed seeing your photo of him.
    As always it's a pleasure to stop in and see what you've been up too.

  5. It's a nice photo. It is not easy to get photos of birds. The goldfinches always remind me of flying jewels. Art
