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

This morning it was 60 degrees and cloudy.  A little warmer than yesterday but it felt the same since the sun wasn't out today.

I walked around the ball park loop first and then both the cemeteries.

Saw a man walking his two dogs and then a woman who I haven't see before but she was too far away to say  hi too.  Kathy was out again walking too.

Walked through the main street in town and then down toward Happy Trails a ways, turned around, walked through down again and on home.

When I came back home Ken was sitting on the porch and I sat there with him for a while before going into the house for breakfast.

Walked 6.4 miles.

We needed a new dehumidifier for down in the basement so we drove over to Uniontown where the closest Home Depot is and bought one.  We were down that way at lunch time so we had a bit to eat at Olive Garden while we were there.  The soup and salad is a nice lunch and who doesn't love those bread sticks.

We were supposed to get some rain today but it never did rain.  Now I'll have to go outside and water the plants I planted yesterday.

Another old picture.  My grandparents on my mother's side with my Aunt Jean, Uncle Raymond, and Uncle Johnny.  My mother and her two younger brothers haven't arrived yet.  I called my grandfather Poppy and he died when I was 4.  My grandmother died when I was 17 and I knew her well and have pictures of her later in life and I just can't see my grandmother in this picture.  She looks totally different to me.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
A happy day to you.

  1. I love pictures of old barns....and black and white photos! ;-) We had rain yesterday....and wind. Had sticks to pick up out of the yard this morning. Glad you didn't get rained on during your morning walk.

  2. That was such a pretty walk. I love eating at Olive Garden! Those bread sticks! Don't get to go much though.

  3. I love "walking" with you, especially on days I don't get exercise myself except to do housework. You make my day a little lighter. Thank you.

  4. I'm glad the weather is cooperating, Karen. Horses are so photogenic.

    Love the family potrait.

  7. I grew up with my grandparents on my mother's side. My grandpa was my play mate as a child and he had wonderful patience with me. Such a nice photo of yours. Have a great day.

  8. Beautiful header photo and shot of the horses at the barn!
