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

68 degrees this morning, cloudy and looked like rain but soon the sun was shining.

Wasn't sure where I wanted to walk this morning when I stepped outside but my feet took me around the Farm Loop.   I'm glad I went that way because it was beautiful and peaceful.

Saw a few bunnies, a couple of deer and a ground hog along the way.
An older gentleman passed me riding his bicycle up the hill.

The corn is now about 18 inches tall and looks nice and healthy.  We've gotten a good amount of sun and rain so far.
Back in town I saw Kathy again as I made a loop around town and the ball park.

Walked 6.4 miles.

It's been a while since Ken had breakfast with Edd and then went to the sale (auction) so it was nice he got to do that this morning.  He also stopped at Walmart on the way home and did the shopping this week. 

I made some macaroni salad for this evening.  We are going to meet up with some friends at Tricia and Randy's house for supper and an evening of playing Mexican Train.

Took a little walk to the bank and on the way back stopped in at the library to say hi to Connie.

Spent a couple of hours out in the front yard this afternoon doing some more weeding.  Seems like it never gets done but I don't mind and it is nice to be outside on a nice day.  It was in the 70's and sunny with a bit of a breeze.  It clouded up at one point and the rain came pouring down.  Rained for about 10 minutes and then the sun came back out. 

Better go and get ready for our evening out.
A happy day to you.

Here is a picture of me and my daughter Debbi in 1982.  
She was 8 years old.


  1. Lovely photos Karen. Your corn is a lot father along then ours. We have had no rain really in three weeks. Very pretty photo of you and your daughter.

  2. Beautiful photo of you and your daughter. It is always wonderful to pop into your blog and see your photos. Such a contrast to what we call home.

  3. Awww, that is such a sweet picture of you and your daughter.
    Your day sounds like a nice one. I am now thinking I need to take note of the corn's progress around here.
    I totally can relate to the weeding topic. A never ending chore it seems.

  4. What a lovely photo of you and your daughter! I just love to hear about your walks. Your temps are just wonderful. How I would love that. I hope you are having a great evening.

  5. the corn is looking good. Have a happy weekend (but I already know you will!)

  6. Love that picture of you two. Where have the years all flown?

    Now I must go back to see how your visit went with your son home for a bit.

  7. The corn here in Germany is about the same height as it is there...it is nice to see it grow :)

  8. A lovely view of the road you walked and the corn is coming along well!
    Such an adorable photo of you and your daughter! They do grow up like corn so fast!

  9. Hello, I think the corn around is here is not as tall yet. Lovely views and photos. Pretty shot of you and your daughter. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend!

  10. I love the photo with your daughter!
    And also the corn picture. The fields land have less red color here. O yes, and about snowball bushes: He likes moist place in nutritious, humus-rich soil. It is recommended to sprinkle in the summer, peat or tree bark around the foot of the plant, in order to prevent evaporation.

  11. You and Debbi are very cute!
    I had some great macaroni salad for lunch. Did you know that a scoop of mac salad is a staple of the Hawaiian plate lunch?
