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

More flowers

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿

This morning it was 70 degrees and windy with a very changeable sky.  I had some sun, big clouds and rain.  Got wet and dried out a couple of times.  Didn't bother with the umbrella.  The rain feels good when its warm out.

Walked around town and the cemeteries and ball park loop again.  Stopped in at the post office to mail off a card too.

Saw a couple of blue birds, and the other usual ones and rabbits too.  No people out walking this morning.

Walked 5.4 miles.

We were hoping to be able to get the floor started on the cabin but the weather has been very unpredictable and we didn't want the wood to get wet.  In hind sight we could have gotten the wood and put it down because it didn't rain again till 4:00.

I dug up some daisies and we took them to Betty and Dennis, some friends of ours, for their garden.  They gave me a bunch of plants - foxglove, tall phlox, iris, lambs ear, liatris and some yellow flower that I forgot the name of.  They wanted to give me more but I said I'd have to make more gardens.  : )These are the same people that Ken helped by digging a trench with the tractor in their back yard.

I came home and planted all the plants.  It kept looking like it was going to rain but I got them all planted.  Also got the lawn mowed and then came the rain to water all my new plants. 

We sat out on the porch awhile - Ken reading and me knitting.  We also played a game of Chinese checkers which I won. : )

Hopefully tomorrow we can get some work done on the cabin.
Hope your day was a happy one.

  1. Great quote and a great post. Looks like you are having a lovely time. Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.

  2. It seems they are calling for a chance of thunderstorms here everyday now. Your gardens will be beautiful with all the flowers! Enjoy your evening!

  3. Wow, I haven't played Chinese Checkers for a long time - not since Josh was little. Brings back memories. Can't wait to see pictures of your new plants. Glad you got them all planted. Your days always sound so nice! See you tomorrow.

  4. We need a good rain here! It has been ages since I've thought of Chinese Checkers! How lucky you are to have foxglove! Can't remember the names of the others.LOL Good friends there!

  5. Way to go on that victory you won at Chinese checkers!

  6. Looking forward to seeing your garden pics, it's going to be really pretty when it all flowers :)


  7. How nice of your friends to share the flower and plants with you.
    Looks like you had another lovely day.

    Best of luck getting the floor in.


  8. Isn't it lovely to get plants from friends? I think they mean more then. The corn looks very high. Hope you are able to work on your cabin today.

  9. Congrats on your checkers win!! Sounds like the rain held off until just the perfect time for your new, thirsty plants. I bet your garden is looking great!

  10. Oh I love gifts of perennials! Saves so much money and they are already tried and true for your area. You will show is once they are established? I just made another garden on the east side of the barn/garage so will have a place for anything that might be offered to me. I also have a cull pile that makes the ravine look a little special.

  11. Your friends gave you some wonderful treasures in those perennials! What a blessing! The sun will shine again and the rain will eventually stop...and then that floor will get put down in nothing flat.

    You always brighten my day, my friend.
