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

Today's walking weather was a lot like yesterdays.  A misty rain was falling and it was 40 degrees.  It stopped half way along my walk though and the sun ended up coming out. : ) 

Started my walking going to the library and dropping the book I finished yesterday down the book drop.  Then continued walking up and down and all around town.

Noticed there are two houses for sale within a couple of blocks of each other in town, both for sale by owner.  Sometimes houses sell super quick here and other times it can take a year or so.  Will be interesting to see how long these take.

No people or animals around this morning.
Walked 6.1 miles.

 Tuesday has rolled around once again and we enjoyed a few games of bowling.  There were five of us bowling today.   Not great games and not bad games for me just average games.  My average now is 132 and today's bowling scores were 137, 121, and 132.

A stop at Walmart for some food shopping on the way home and also made a stop at the Tractor Supply Store to get some more bird seed.

This morning before we left for bowling I walked over to the library and picked up book number two in the Amish series I've started reading, Meek and Mild. I also came home with a magazine, an audio book and another book. 
Every year the library has a bookmark contest for the kids where they design bookmarks and the winners get their design made into bookmarks and they are handed out at the library.  The theme this year was Libraries Transform.  The following are the winners.  I like to collect bookmarks so took one of each.

Top right by Levi, age 10.
Bottom by Heidi age 12.

Looking forward to reading Meek and Mild later on.  But right now it's time for me to do my exercise tape.

A happy day to you.

  1. The little quote at the end is kinda funny...yet, full of truth! ;-) Pretty pictures again today. Happy Tuesday!

  2. Love the bookmarks, what a great idea for the little kids!
    Loving the birdhouse even more!!
    Happy Wednesday :)

  3. You do live in a pretty area, great for walks! The children's bookmarks are fun & I see talent there!
    Enjoy your day!

  4. My brother is a realtor and says the good ones last maybe a month at most, the bad ones take at least a year. I've seen some ones that look good on the exterior then looks horrid on the interior.

  5. What a beautiful and unusual birdhouse! the children's bookmarks are outstanding, and what a great way for the library to motivate the children! I have started my daily walking once again, I always think of you when I walk, and when I try talking myself out of walking!~smile~ Have a blessed day.
    Hugs from me to you,

  6. Hello, I love the cute birdhouse and the bookmarks. I buy my bird seed at tractor supply too, they seem reasonably priced. Great quote and so true! Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  7. Love the birdhouse too in your top photo. What adorable bookmarks! I must have 30 of them. Some I have had since I was a kid.
    Have a great day!

  8. I'm trying to figure out the book marks. Its interesting how a child thinks.
    The first one, I see ideas swirling around in a mind.
    The second one, I see a person choosing a book.
    The third one, I see imaginations.
    Glad you had another great walk.

  9. Yes, our local libraries have similar competitions for the children to enter and it's such fun.

    The bookmarks all look great, and you can never have too many...

    All the best Jan

  10. What a great program. I imagine there are some happy kids to see their work on bookmarks.

  11. That's a grand idea about the bookmarks. Every library should do that! That little birdhouse in the top photo is very neat!
