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 bit of green

Back of the Drane House walking down the road by the school.
Zoomed in just a bit. 
 ☀     ☀     ☀     ☀
Left close to my usual time at 6:40 this morning.  It was 42 degrees, windy and dark.  The sun rose at 7:27.  I walked the Farm Loop.  Sure nice walking up that way again.  Left in plenty of time to avoid the school traffic.

None of the cows or horses were around today, at least not where I could see them. 

Nice seeing and hearing the birds every morning again.  I saw a Red Winged Blackbird when walking around one of the cemeteries.

The Farm Loop is a 4.2 mile loop from my house so I walked around town to get my full 6 miles in.
☀     ☀     ☀     ☀
I've been home today doing a bit of work around the house.  It turned into a beautiful sunny day and in the low 60's so after lunch we went outside in the yard.  I pulled out a rose bush, one of four that I'm getting rid of this year and did a little raking and just checking out things in the yard. 
 Look what's coming up in my front garden. : )  The first daffodils.
Our son David arrived late this afternoon with his two kids, Scout (11) and Japhy (9) which are of course our grandkids. : ) They are having their spring break and David has them for the week with him in NJ so he came for a visit.  They live in OK.  Nice to see them all again. : )   Having a great visit. 

I made David's favorite supper of tuna casserole but instead of using canned tuna I used canned chicken so turned it into chicken casserole.  : )

We watched some old videos after supper and now the kids are downstairs with Ken and the trains.
Soon it will be time for ice cream.

That's it for today.
Hope your day has been a good one.

A rash of good luck. : )

John - Thank You.  : )  My camera is just a simple point and shoot. Nikon COOLPIX L620.  I just walk along and think oh that would make a nice picture and I take a picture.  God has made all the beauty, I just record some of it. : )

Billy - No, I don't quilt so don't use the buttons for that and have never thought about using them in the afghans I knit.  I knit a lot of baby blankets and buttons are probably not a good idea on them. : )

Deb - No, she lives 10 hours away and asked us not to be there.  We will be visiting up there in May.


  1. Tell the grandkids they are missing out on 70 degree weather! It got up to 78 today!

  2. Hi Happyone, Thank you for answering my question. You are so right about God creating the beauty. And I think God is using you to share it with us. Blessings to you for that. I also like your new profile picture. Have a fine day! John

  3. Yay! It's nice that the flowers are beginning to sprout.... you'll have blossoms in no time.
    So wonderful that you are able to have a visit from your son and Grands!
    Enjoy your time with them :)


  4. So glad David and the children came for a visit. I know you're enjoying having them. Welcome daffodils, welcome spring! Mary Jo

  5. Hi There, Glad you can get outside and walk again. It was a long winter for most of us... We had our winter in about 2-3 weeks and it was a whopper... I am so happy to see the warmer temps this week and some SUNSHINE....

    I'm sure you enjoyed seeing your son and the grandchildren.

  6. Oh wonderful to have your son and the grands. I know that they love to visit you as much as you and Ken love to have them. Keep having fun!

  7. I sent you an e-mail just now. Mary Jo
