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

Bowling with friends day

Here comes the sun
✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
It was sunny this morning with a few clouds and they were low enough that I walked through a couple of them and it was 56 degrees.

Walked around the Farm Loop.  Saw a few deer and one of them is in the picture below in the middle of the soy bean field.  Can you spot her?
When I got back to town I walked around the ball park loop and then home.
No people around this morning.
I walked 5.5 miles.
Found a penny.

We met some friends down at the bowling lanes in Keyser again and bowled three games.  We try to get there every Monday though we missed the last two.
There is no consistency to my bowling and I never know how my games will turn out.
Today I bowled not bad but not great.  120, 100, and 115.  The difference today is that I'm learning what I'm doing wrong and I feel more in control over the ball.  Hopefully I'll improve going every week. 

It is a lot of fun anyway and afterwards all 6 of us stopped at the Chew and Chat for something to eat.  We spent a good long time there eating and having some very good discussions.  We did just what the name said. : )

We left at 11:15 this morning and didn't get back home until 6:30.  In the morning I had hung up a load of wash so it hung outside ALL day.  It was certainly dry.  I had planned on mowing the lawn when we got home but it seemed a bit too late after getting in the clothes and folding them.  I'll take care of the lawn tomorrow.

That's been my day.  It was been a warm one with temperatures climbing into the mid 80's.  That is quite warm for here.

Hope it's been a good day for you.

  2. Good morning, your imaes are so pretty. The bowling and dinner with your friends sounds like a great time! I like the name of the restaurant, it is cute. Have a happy Tuesday!

  3. Your sunrise picture from yesterday is absolutely gorgeous! I saw much the same on my morning walk. I'm finding that the people I see driving by on a regular basis are now "watching for me" and I'm happy to see so many smile and wave. :-)

    Your day yesterday sounds like a lot of fun!

  4. Sounds like a nice day out.
    Your bowling scores are pretty good. I don't think I have bowled in 20 years.
    Gorgeous photos as always!

  5. Sounds like a fun day. Bowling is fun, but I don't do it enough to get really good at it. Eating and chatting with friends is the best way to spend an afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  6. I had to enlarge the photo, but I was able to see the deer. Very pretty photos from your walk and how neat to walk through the clouds.
    Your day with friends sounds like a lot of fun. Cute name for the restaurant.
