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 warm 50 degrees this morning when I started walking.  Some sun, some clouds and while the sun was shining it rained for ONE minute!!

Walked all over town today on no particular route, just where ever the spirit moved me. 

A couple of guys in a pickup truck stopped to ask me for directions.

No fishermen at the little pond today but there was a pretty reflection in the water.

There were a couple of mallard ducks swimming around but they flew away when I walked around the pond.  Saw a few rabbits and some geese too.

Walked 6.3 miles.

Last night after church some people stayed around and set up and started putting together some Romans books in Spanish for the Fingerprints Ministry.  I've posted about what it involves HERE.
Today we spent the whole day (9:30 to 4:30) at church getting almost 7000 of the books done. 
It's always a good day working with the others putting the books together.  We had a lunch break and had pizza. : )

No time for much else today.
Hope your day has been a happy one and you smiled often.

would think we must be mad with joy
the whole time
to have such things about us."
~ Iris Murdoch

The daffodils in my yard have finally bloomed.  
Here's one of them.


  1. This post is just filled with happy thoughts.The reflections are super.Great to hear about all the books you put together so others can be blessed and then you end it with a burst of sunshine with that Daffodil.

  2. Much warmer weather for your walking this morning. I walked today, too, but not nearly that many miles. :( It was windy and we're expecting storms later this tonight. Love your pretty daffodils and the bird on a pole.

  3. Such wonderful pictures! Love the daffodils! Something happened to mine.:-( The tulips have bloomed, though, although there aren't as many of them as in the past, either.

  4. Oh, it will be so nice when the Daffodils bloom!

  5. Hello, I love the Northern Flicker on the pole, Daffodils and the pretty reflection in the pond. That quote is awesome! Have a happy weekend!

  6. I just love daffodils! The pond is such a pretty view during your walk. I agree that spending the day with friends doing something worthwhile is the best!

  7. You have shared some stunning photos with us today. Have a wonderful weekend :)

  8. Love your Northern Flicker - and your Daffy :)

  9. Imagine that bird way up there among all those wires! Your pictures are so pretty!
