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

The sunny days are still here.

The sunflowers I planted are not quite blooming yet but a flower is starting.  : )
This one is about 7 feet tall now.

56 degrees and sunny when I walked this morning.  There were some low hanging clouds around but they soon disappeared.  Mailed off a Netflix at the post office.

Walked down past the HT turn off a ways, then turned around and headed back to town where I walked around one of the cemeteries and the ball park loop.  Lena was out walking with her dog.  Haven't seen her in a while and we walked a little way together.  Her daughter is Rebecca who I've mentioned before. 

Walking past the little town pond I saw all these geese.  There are a few families of them.  All the little ones have grown as big as the parents.  They were making quite a ruckus today.

Saw an older man out walking this morning who I've never seen before.  Wasn't close enough to say good morning.

I walked 5.4 miles.
Found a penny.  : )

We went to the Preston County Antique Tractor, Machinery & Vehicle Show in Reedsville, WV today which is about 45 miles from home.  It was much smaller than we thought it would be but had a nice time anyway.  Just the ride there was nice, enjoying the beautiful countryside.

This old truck made me think of the Beverly Hillbillies.  I can just see Granny sitting in the back of it on the rocking chair. : )  Anyone remember that old television show?

There was small craft section at the show and I bought 4 place mats that I woman made.  When I got home I put them on the dining room table.  Cut some daisies and cone flowers from the yard and put them in the old mason jar.
Our car was very dirty and neither one of us felt like washing it so we both went out and did it together.  Got in done in half the time.  What a team we are. : )

It's been another beautiful summer day. 

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

Vee - Don't have a bear plan.  Hoping if I see one it will just run away.  I know not to turn my back on it and  I'll just yell at it and say a prayer. : )


  1. Sounds like you had a lovely day. I love your mason jar full of flowers. I remember The Beverly Hillbillies. The car does look like it should have been on the show!

  2. Lovely post. That sunflower will look amazing soon. Such happy flowers :-)

  3. Your sunflower is very tall, they are one of my favorite flowers. Love the shot of the geese and your vase of flowers and placemats are pretty. Happy Sunday, have a great day!

  4. I say that's a sign of a good marriage -- doing a job together. Half the work, and twice the joy of having company :) I do recall the Beverly Hillbillies. It was a favorite. We had such fun, silly after-school shows to watch. I think I must have been watching reruns in the 70s, I guess. I'm glad you have a few other walkers to keep you company and greet in the mornings!

  5. Oh yes, I can see granny in that car too. I used to love the Beverly Hillbillies. "Well the first thing ya know old Jed's a millionaire, the kinfolk said Jed move away from here..." Those old shows had some of the catchiest tunes :).
    Your new place mats are pretty and look so nice with your bouquet.

  6. Yes, I remember The Beverly Hillbillies very well...one of the family favorites. Granny was a hoot.

    I like the daisies in the mason jar and I am very intrigued by the placemats.

    Sounds as if you do have a bear plan...might want to slip prayer up to the top. =D

  7. I used to love "The Beverly Hillbillies!" Cool truck!

  8. By the way, I've run into black bears - never grizzlies - while hiking many times and (knock on wood) they always run. I would never approach one, and nothing can be taken for granted. I do know that with black bears, if one attacks you, you fight back as if your life depends on it, which it probably does.


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