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

Fingerprints Day

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
70 degrees this morning and cloudy on my walk today.  Didn't leave until 7:00 this morning cause I got up later than usual.  While walking it stared to drizzle just a bit but it didn't last long.  I made it back home before it started raining.

I walked down past the HT turn off and then on the way back I turned in at the HT road and walked down to here  where I turned around.  Happy Trails is just up the road.
I saw quite a few gold finches along the edge of the road and a deer and her two young ones.  Didn't see any people out walking.

I walked 4.2 miles.

Shorter walk than usual because it was Fingerprints day at church and had to get home so we could leave for that.  Ken and I worked on the stapler machines with four others getting the booklets stapled together.  We are putting together the gospel of Romans in French.  We always have a good time doing this.  Noon we had a break and had chili dogs for lunch provided by a couple in the church, Sandy and Brian.  Then back to work until 2:00.  We put together 4,000 booklets.  : )

The rest of the afternoon Ken went up to HT and got the nail gun working again and put up another sheet of plywood on the cabin.
I was at home making chili (for my mom and dad) and some pizza dough for our supper which we ate on the porch.

We got a good bit of rain in the morning but then the sun came out and we had a nice sunny day.  There is a cool breeze too and it is very pleasant out.

I plan to do some reading and knitting this evening.

Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )
A kind heart is a fountain of gladness,
making everything in its vicinity 
freshen into smiles.

  1. Sounds like another nice day with many accomplishments for you and Ken. Glad to hear the nail gun is back in action.
    Still hot and extremely humid here. Can't wait to be outside again. Right now it's mostly just to water my plants and run errands, other than that... thankful for air conditioning.

  2. Good morning, love the images. Sounds like another great day. We are expecting some cooler weather today, I hope they are correct. I assume you will be visiting your Mom soon. Have a happy day and weekend ahead!

  3. Hi Karen, Very nice work on your last few posts. I enjoy the pictures of the corn and seeing how well it is doing. Your corn fields are as good as anything I've seen in Iowa or Nebraska and that is supposed to the corn capitol. :-) Interesting photos down by the library give me a little different view of your town. Like the old houses. Wondered what "fingerprint day" was about? The cabin is looking wonderful. Your baby blankets reminded me of my volunteer work at the hospital ... I am helping in the nursery when nurses or parents can't rock their newborns and need someone to sit in for them. It is a lot of fun and those little babies are so sweet! Thanks for your comments about the Blue Angels. Have a great weekend!

  4. As always I enjoy your photos. You and Ken were very busy at the church. Sounds like you will be taking your Mom and Dad lots of yummy treats! Have a great weekend!

  5. It sounds like you are going to be visiting your family! I hope all goes well!

  6. The two of you are always so busy. I see that you are making things for your Mom. Is she at home now. When are you going to visit her?

  7. Lovely picture and I see the work on your cabin is coming along nicely. It looks like it will be nice and cozy.

  8. Four thousand! Incredible!

  9. 4000 booklets! That's quite productive! And got the nail gun working -- good for him :) Your weather sounds so lovely and cool.
