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

Next years Dandelions 
✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
Back to warmer temperatures this morning, it was 50 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds when I walked.

 First walked over to the post office and put some mail down the slot, then walked around town.  There is a big old house for sale right on the main street right at the edge of town and it is empty so I walked around the house looking in the windows.  It's a nice house and I wouldn't mind living there, but I have no intentions of moving again. : )

Walked around the cemeteries and the ball park loop.  I pass the town pond just about every day when I walk and once in a while when the grass isn't wet I'll walk around the pond and that is what I did today.  It's just a small pond and I went around it twice.
I didn't see any one else out walking.
Kept my eye out for raccoons hoping I didn't see any.  There have been two people in my town that have been bit by raccoons that have rabies.

I found another coin today, a dime.
Walked 5.4 miles.

Another day spent working at Happy Trails.  Today we went with the now fixed trailer and got three more loads of stone and spread them all out.  It is so much easier walking up and down to the building site with the stone instead of walking over rocks and tree roots and holes.
We are glad to be done hauling stone and look forward to the next step.  What is that you ask?  Check back often to see what we've been up to. : )
We got back down to the house at 5:30 and didn't feel like cooking, so after getting cleaned up we went to Annie's Kitchen right here in town for supper.
Had some great weather for working - sunny with a few clouds thrown in and about 70 degrees.

Tonight will be the usual evening at home, which is a good thing. : )

It's been a good day.
Life is Good.
Hope your day was a happy one.

If you are patient in a moment of anger,
you will escape one hundred days of sorrow.

CatLover - the sunflower seeds I planted are Girasol Mammoth.  Package says they grow up to 12 feet.  : )

Kim -  We live in the most western part of MD you can get.  What part of PA did Brett go to?

  6. You guys are amazing in what you have achieved up at HT.

  7. Thanks for answering my question about the sunflowers. I will look for them.

  8. There was a lady here in Richmond a month or so ago that was attacked by a rabid raccoon. she had to strangle it with her bare hands, which much have been horrible.
