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 vase of yellow

Can you spot the hidden broken rake in this picture?

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
A warm morning walk today with a temperature of 50 degrees.  A bit of a breeze and it was cloudy.

Had a nice walk all over town, up and down all the streets in no particular pattern.  Walked down towards Happy Trails and back up the hill again.  Here I am getting back to town.
No other people around but I did see cardinals, a couple of killdeer, the flicker again in the same place as yesterday's picture, and quite a few red winged blackbirds.

Walked 6.4 miles.
Didn't find any coins today and the count for the month of March was not very much.
Only 32 cents, a quarter and 7 pennies.

Got a meat loaf started in the slow cooker first thing this morning after breakfast.  Nice having supper started early in the day. : )

Picked some of those daffodils growing in my yard and some forsythia too and brought the pretty color inside the house.  The vase is one that Ken got in a box of junk at the auction for $1.

It's been a home day for me just doing a bit of this and that around the house.

We've had a bit of rain and sun throughout the day.  It was too windy to do any yard work so I jut walked around the yard looking at things.

I got a little more reading done and I'm enjoying this 4th book of the Outlander series.  

Hope your day has been a happy one and that you smiled often.
happyone : )

  1. It is definitely a good feeling to have dinner all prepared early in the day. Here it is 5:30 and I'm clueless as to what we'll be having :/.
    Your vase of yellow is a very pretty sight.

  2. Nope - can't spot the broken rake. Your dinner sounds great. I've never made meat loaf in a crock pot. Have a great evening.

  3. When I seen the headline "vase of yellow" I knew it would be this plant. I love the yellow bells. I usually will make a vase for the table around Easter but my neighbor cut hers down so I didn't have any to cut from. I love the picture of the white church.

  4. Found it! The rake fits in well, but the tiny bit of blue metal gave it away. :)

  5. Hello, your vase with the yellow daffies and forsythia is beautiful. The meatloaf sounds yummy. Great quote! Happy weekend to you!

  6. Lovely vase of flowers Karen. Nice to have a day at home with no pressing jobs! Glad you are enjoying your Outlander book. Have a nice weekend.

  7. I just read this and thought you'd enjoy it:
    There is no bad weather, just incorrect clothing choices

  8. Had to look twice, but I found the rake - without most of its handle.

  9. Beautiful vase of yellow daffodils and forsythia. I had to enlarge the picture, then I found the rake. Congrats on more books of Romans being collated. Busy, busy, busy!

  10. I did find the broken rake. What a neat picture. Your yellow flowers are so pretty and cheerful!

  11. I always enjoy the description of your walks and especially your photos. Love that church picture. It's really windy here today and supposed to be freezing temps tonight and tomorrow night....I think this is dogwood winter! ;-)
