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

A good day

☀     ☀     ☀     ☀

A crisp fall morning just like yesterday, 40 degrees, dark and after sunrise it stayed sunny.

Walked around town again and down past the HT turn off and back to town.

Sad - a deer was hit by a car and was dead along the side of the road and I had to walk around her.

Haven't seen any of the women walkers and runners that I see once in a while for quite a while now.  Since I've been walking I've seen many people start walking and then peter out after a while.  Once in a while I'll see them back again making a new start.

Walked 5.8 miles.

I made some Pumpkin Bars this morning for the Ladies Fall Fellowship this evening.  They are supposed to have a cream cheese icing but I just sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. They were good, just nothing special so I didn't post the recipe and I won't make them again.

Did this and that around the house this afternoon and left with my Pumpkin Bars and pumpkin (one of the ones that came up in my front yard) for the ladies fellowship. 
I added my pumpkin to the ones on the tables.
Sandy, a woman from church gave the devotional, we ate and then we could either stay and decorate a pumpkin or go on a hay ride.  Guess what I did?  I went on the hayride which was great fun.  We sang some songs, looked up at the stars, laughed a lot and even saw a deer.

On the bottom of 4 dessert plates was the word winner.  If you had one you won a pumpkin candy dish filled with candy.  I was one of the winners.  : )
It's been a good day.
Hope yours was a good one too.

October is a beautiful month of many colors.
Yellow, orange, gold and red,
down sail the leaves 
on the slightest breeze.
The air is crisp and the sky is blue,
It makes me happy.
How about you? : ) 


  1. Yay for winning! The pumpkins look so pretty on the tables!

  2. The hayride sounds like a lot of fun. Our church has done that in the past around this time of year.

    Congratulations on being the winner of the candy dish of candy corn! :)

    Like your quote at the end of your post today. :)

  3. Good morning, pretty images. I like the pumpkins on the table and your pumpkin bars sound yummy. The hay ride sounds like fun! Congrats on your win! Have a happy weekend!

  4. Hi Karen, I think you have a new header since my last visit ... very nice! Like today's first photo with the reflections! Earlier posts: The Drane house is such an interesting piece of history. Neat Fall photo there. The cabin at HT is sure looking good. Liked the photos of the trails around HT. Wishing you and Ken a Happy Weekend!

  5. I actually never been on a hayride

  6. Glad you day was a good one. I like the top photo with the pond shoreline. The reflections look like an impressionism painting!
