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 walk around the farm loop and happy trails

☀     ☀         
44 degrees this morning and just a light breeze with sun and clouds.  Really perfect weather for walking.  I ended up taking my hood down because it was so nice and warm.

It was nice to get back to the Farm Loop route.  The roads were clear except for this patch here.  The wind blew the snow off the field into the road after it was plowed.
I took a detour and went up Spear Rd
to check out the old tree and its still standing.
Its been like this with one arm for years.
Then back to the Farm Loop and home.  Didn't see anyone else about and just a couple of cars.  A beautiful morning to be out walking.

Walked 6.2 miles.

After lunch we went up to Happy Trails for a look around.
Everything fine up there.
Walked around the trails.  
Beautiful weather!!  
Feels like spring is in the air,
though I know next week it could snow again. 
 When we got back to the house we sat out on the swing in the yard for a little while before going in the house. 

I had forgotten that I had some rhubarb filling that I made for rhubarb cobbler sitting in the freezer.  I thawed it out and made the topper and now I'm looking forward to having it for my snack tonight.  I like rhubarb cobbler even better than ice cream, though I do like it with a scoop vanilla ice cream.

It's been a most enjoyable day.
A happy day to you.

Exercise, play move.
Stretch, feel, reach, sweat.
Skip, dance, hug!
Use the body God gave you,
don't let it rot.

Vee and Nellie -  We live in the most western part of Maryland (Garrett County) in the mountains.  We live along the ridge and get more snow and colder weather here than the rest of the state.  Most people don't realize it is like that here, even people from MD.  Elevation is about 2800 feet.  We are about 1400 feet higher than Uniontown.


  1. Glad you had a lovely walk. It feels so nice to have the warm air on your face :)

  2. I'm guessing lightning or cold weather took the other big branch off.

  3. Gorgeous photos as always Karen!
    We were nice and warm here today too.
    I love rhubarb too but never have made it into a cobbler. I will try it this spring when rhubarb is back at the farmers market.
    Take care!

  4. Love the one arm tree. lol Beautiful walk.

  5. I like the looks of that unique tree.The rhubarb cobbler sounds delightful.
