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

Our pumpkins out front

Passed by this shed on my walk and thought it looked nice nestled down there.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
50 degrees this morning and dark when I started walking.  Roads were wet but drying and when the sun rose it was sunny with some clouds scattered around. 

I had a random walk all over the place.  I have tried to make some different walking routes but don't seem to stick to them here.  I think I prefer to just walk where I feel like it.  Back where I used to live I mostly stuck to the routes I mapped out.  Maybe because there where lots of walking paths already around and I just followed them and then I had the lake to walk around.  Sometimes I miss walking around the lake and the many paths I had to walk but I like walking around here too.  I'm sure if I moved someplace else I would miss my walking places here too.

I saw someone getting a new front window put in their house.  When I passed by the workers had just removed the old window completely.  It was a big picture window.  I'll have to go back tomorrow and see what they replaced it with.

Walking around one of the cemeteries I saw a new grave. 
There is a big red building right at the edge of town that says Farmers Market and it has been for sale for a few years.  I noticed lots of activity going on up there.  Wonder what it will be.

I walked 6.2 miles.
Found a penny - this time heads up.  That's good luck, right Keith? : )

We have an old Hoosier (old kitchen baking cupboard) that I've had for about 25 years and just have no room for it and it has been sitting up in the shed.  Some friends of ours have a booth in an antiques and collectibles shop and we gave it to them to sell for us and we will split the money.  I had planned on taking a picture of their booth with our Hoosier in it but forgot all about it. 

We went for a little ride afterwards and planned to check out a little antique shop we see signs for but have never stopped at.  It was closed though - only open Fri - Sun so we will have to go back another time.

I was in the house and went outside to see what Ken was up to.  He had taken the pumpkins from our garden and arranged them out in front of the house.  Didn't he do a great job? 
 We still have seven more pumpkins growing in the patch.

 A happy day to you my friends.
