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 sunny walk

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
Well the snow is all gone except for little patches here and there.  It was 46 degrees and dark when I left on my walk this morning.  After a mile or so it started to rain so before I got too wet I went home and changed into my rain pants and slicker.  Left again and no sooner got to the end of the driveway and it stopped raining, but didn't bother going back because I thought it might start again.  But no, the sun finally came out and it was a beautiful morning.  Ended up carrying the rain slicker.

Walked all over town, up and down all the streets, around both cemeteries and the ball park loop.

Nice to hear all the birds out singing and I saw a couple of rabbits hopping about off to the right in the picture on the side.

At the day care center, which is on the other side of the curved fence of which I like to take pictures, a woman was outside with a couple of kids and as I walked by she came over to the fence and we had a little chat.  Said she sees me walking all over the place and asked me the usual questions.  She was very nice and her name is Caroline.

Went a little ways up Sale Barn Rd to say hi to the cows.  They all looked up but then went back to eating, all except this guy, who came over to see me.  He's been walking in the mud.  Look at his dirty feet!
 Walked 6.3 miles.

Mid morning it clouded up and we've had rain showers all day.  After a late start I got a good bit of house work done today.  Managed to get a little reading in too. 

We just got back from eating supper at Annie's here in town.  We each had a turkey club and brought half of it home.
The rain has stopped and it is very foggy now.  The only nice weather was when I walked.
Hope all is well in your world.

  1. The pictures are so beautiful with that nice sunshine.

  2. Don't you love to be able to get your walk in before the bad weather hits? What a blessing. I really like the road picture!

  3. How nice that the weather cooperated so well for your walk. The cow with the muddy feet made me smile.
    Your day sounds nice and productive.

  4. Cows always seem to be extremely bored

  5. Sounds like a great day. You must be super fit. I love listening to the birds singing, it's very uplifting.
    Happy Tuesday :)

  6. Hello, I love the cute cows! I am glad the snow is gone and the rain has stopped. I would like some nice sunny warm days to walk outside. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

  7. Now that sounds a very good day.
    Lovely photo's, and the cows made me smile, thank you.

    Enjoy your Tuesday

    All the best Jan

  8. Beautiful photos Karen. Most of our snow is gone too, but it has stayed chilly. The cows look like they have a good life living in your beautiful area!
    Have a good day.

  9. How much fun to see cows on your walks! I'm glad you've got your sun. Hopefully your snow will not come back. Have a great day.

  10. It's always nice when the sun comes out again! Lovely light over the fields !
    I did smile at the cow's muddy socks!
    Can I ask how long it takes you to walk 6 miles? I would like to walk more each day. At the minute I walk just about 2 miles & wonder how I can fit more in!

  11. Your walks are always interesting. I just walk in circles of my neighborhood. Nothing ever new except the clouds.

  12. Such pretty cows! I like it that you spread sunbeams on your long walks, stopping to talk to folks. So dear.

  13. That sounds like a much better day for walking!
