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

Catch Up

☁     ☁     ☁     ☁
Another morning that I didn't wake up until 7:00 so got started late again.  These days are the shortest daylight hours of the year and I think that's why I'm just not ready to get up at my usual 6:15.

 It was 40 degrees and cloudy when I walked with a bit of a breeze.  I dropped the Christmas cards I wrote out yesterday in the mail slot at the post office and then continued and walked through town.  Went part way up Sale Barn Rd and back down, passed HT turn off and turned around and went back to town.

Walked around the two cemeteries and up and down a few streets.

A few of the gravestones have little Christmas trees by them.

Thought there would be a few  people out walking around since it was later but no one else was around.

By the time I was back home the sun had come out.

I walked 6 miles.

It's been a catch up day today.  I've read blogs, finished writing out my Christmas cards and got some laundry done.  Those few words just about sums up my day. : )

Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )
 There as only been one Christmas,
the rest are anniversaries.

  1. I've never seen a gravestone with a heart shape. I wonder how much that must have cost.

  2. A very sweet post. I sure admire you for walking like you do!

  3. I love that first picture.Have a happy week.

  4. Hello, pretty images. You have nice views while you are walking. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  5. That's great that you had nice enough weather to take a nice long walk.
    Enjoy this beautiful season.

    Merry Christmas!


  6. Lovely photos. I'm glad you can sleep in. For some reason I am waking up at 5:00 every morning for the past week! It has been wonderful weather for walking early though.
    Take care.

  7. I like the idea of a little Christmas tree...something to think about.
