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

Up to Happy Trails

 Row of trees
The tree with the swing under it is ours.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
It was 57 degrees this morning when I walked and was cloudy though the sun did come out later in the day.  I had a random walk around town. 

Saw one other person out walking his dog and we exchanged a good morning.

These are soy beans sitting on the fence post by one of the cemeteries.  I've been putting a few out here each morning and when I come back the next day they are gone.  I'm thinking that a bird  has been eating them.
A nice quiet walk - nothing out of the ordinary.
I walked 6.4 miles.

This morning I took my car out for a spin and went to check out a store called Cato which I've never been to before.  It had some nice clothes but I didn't see anything for me today.  Very few clothes in my size.

After lunch we headed up to Happy Trails for a few hours.  The road is all cleared now up to the cabin site.
Ken used the chipper for a while and made a big pile of chips which I will be able to put down on the new trail that I'm working on.  The trail starts at the back of the cleared spot for the cabin and will eventually end up on the trail/road behind the wood shop.  I clear a route first, then line it with trees logs and stone and finally put down the wood chips.
Always nice spending time up at HT. 

A happy day to you.

    Thanks for the beautiful autumn photos. Your trees are beautiful.
    A few of our trees are changing color now.
