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

Took this picture yesterday afternoon at Bob's place 
when we dropped off the gas tank.

66 degrees this morning when I walked.  There was a breeze and cloudy skies.  Looked like rain any minute but never did.
Walked the Farm Loop today.  Haven't walked that way for a while and it was nice getting back there.  I usually walk around town when the weather doesn't look too good but today I went anyway and glad I did.

Hardly ever see anyone else out along the way though occasionally I do see one of the farmers.  Today I saw Farmer Georg coming down his driveway.

The bobolinks, red winged black birds, and swallows were about this morning.

There is an old long blue building along the route that I've mentioned a couple of times before.  It has been for sale for the almost 2 years now that I've been here.  Well the for sale sign is gone and it looks like someone is turning it into a home.  The lawn ornament is new as well as the mail box, AC sticking out the window and the dish.  They must be living in the RV while working on it.  It will be interesting to see what develops here.  I'm hoping some morning someone will be outside that I can talk to.
Once back to town I made a loop through town and home.
Walked 5.2 miles.

Once again this Friday Ken met Ed for breakfast and then off to the auction they went.  It is always fun to see what he brings home with him. : )  Today he came home with a couple of large saw horses, chains, a couple of things for rolling up hoses, an old gas can, and four little cage like boxes that he was told was for moving bees.  The bee things are for me. : )  I'll do something with them in the house for decorating.  No pictures today but there will be. : )

I did some things around the house and then sat out on the porch and made some weave-it squares.  It has rained on and off all day.

I'm headed out now after supper to Carol's house.  She is having a Norwex Party.  Never heard of it before but the card reads,  Join me to learn how to make your home cleaner, greener, and safer.  

Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )

Ruth, Billy and Dianna - Thanks for identifying Evening Primrose.  I'll pass that on to my friends too. : )


  1. I love the top two shots. I would like to see the Bobolink up close. The building looks more like a warehouse than a house. They must be planning on doing a lot of work. I hope the rain holds off some during the weekend. Have a great weekend!

  2. You have piqued my interest too and I am curious to see what becomes of the building conversion.
    Your top picture is lovely.


  3. Love this quote about friends.
    Your pictures are great. It makes me happy when I see an old building being put to good use.
    Hope you enjoyed your Norwex party. Sounds like something you would be interested in.
    Enjoy your weekend! Mary Jo

  4. What interesting things Ken finds at auctions. A friend of ours attends lots of them and gets great deals. Love the photo of the Robin! Take care.

  5. Even out in the country, there is always something happening, some new change. I hope you get to meet your new neighbors soon.

  6. Have I missed that you're going into beekeeping? Must keep reading...

  7. A chance to make a new friend, perhaps.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
