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

Looks like this year I will be able to pick rhubarb out of my garden.  : ) 
I was so excited to see it starting to get some nice thick stalks.

42 degrees this morning and though not the bright sunny morning that it has been all this week it was still a wonderful morning to be up and out walking.  A mix of sun and clouds.

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

A quiet morning with no people about.
Walked 6 miles.

 We left a little early for bowling today because we all met at the Pizza Hut in town  for the buffet lunch.  (I love the dessert pizzas!)
Just something different instead of eating at the bowling alley. Betty and Dennis are back from wintering in Florida.  Great to have them back here again.  They were the ones that got us all starting on bowling every week. : )
There were 8 of us bowling today.
Couldn't seem to find my groove for bowling this time and had a couple of pretty low scores.
Scores for today: 102, 98, and 132.   Had fun anyway and that is really what is all about.

After bowling we went to the church which is just up the street.  I did some weeding and getting rid of last years dead grasses and plants in the little garden we made a couple of years ago by the little radio station building. 

Now for a nice quiet evening at home of a little knitting, reading, television and ice cream.  It's been a good day.

A happy day to you.

Eileen - No, that is not a house.  It is the tractor barn which we built a few years ago.  We have also built a wood shop there at HT too. There are no houses near us.  We have 21 acres and the cabin is pretty much right in the middle.

Melanie - You are correct in that there will be no running water. There is  electric though and we plan on having it quite comfortable inside so it is NOT like camping.  : ) 
Also plan on building a unique type of outhouse. 


  1. That rhubarb will make some yummy pies.

  2. Your rhubarb is a lot further along than ours!

  3. I have never tastes rhubarb. I always wonder what it taste like. I heard of Rhubarb pie but cant imagine it being sweet. I will have to try some. any suggestions?
    I love Pizza Huts dessert pizzas too.

  4. I used to work with a lady who just loved rhubarb pie. I'm not sure I ever ate it, though. How do you cook it? I'm glad the weather is getting nicer for your walks...before long it's gonna be HOT!!!

  5. The rhubarb is looking so healthy and will be great in pies! Lovely morning for a walk with the sun jut cresting the hills!

  6. So good to have home grown rhubarb, a great fruit.

    All the best Jan

  7. Hello, thanks for answwering my question. I forgot about the tractor barn. Sounds like you had a great day, first with the walk and then the pizza and bowling. I have never tried rhubarb. Have a great day!

  8. I see a strawberry rhubarb pie in your future! Yum! Bowling is fun no matter what the score. What fun to winter in Florida and summer back up north!

  9. What gorgeous rhubarb!! Yay for pizza! Dessert pizza is my favorite, too.:-)

  10. My wife always orders fries from the bowling alley. They are pretty good. We went to a circus and their fries tasted like off-brand frozen ones from the grocery store.
