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 gazebo

I'd like one of these in my back yard. : )
✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
A cloudy morning and 68 degrees with a nice breeze.  There was a peek of blue sky but it was quickly gone again.  Thought maybe it would rain but it didn't.  On a warm summer morning a rain shower can feel pretty nice. : )

I walked the Farm Loop.
Then walked around the industrial park too.
 Didn't see anyone else walking but then I didn't walk around town.

 Walked 6.2 miles.

I took a picture of the little meadow in my yard the other day.  This morning before I came in the house from my walk I took a few close ups of some of the things that have popped up in the meadow so far.

Got another load of laundry hung out on the line and did a little more weeding.  This time by the front walk.  Once I get through with all the weeding it will be time to start over again. : )

We went up to Happy Trails again today and I got a little more rock crushed.  Have enough to make a start putting it on the path in the front garden.  Maybe tomorrow I can get some put down.

Now I'm off to do a little reading.
Hope your day was a happy one.

  1. I had to smile at your comment "Once I get through with all the weeding it will be time to start over again. : )" ... that's the fun of gardening isn't it.

    I do like the look of that gazebo

    Enjoy the weekend ... it will be here soon

    All the best Jan

    1. I even did a little more weeding after supper. : )
      Going to an auction in the morning.

  2. I love the delicate beauty of those wildflowers.

    1. I think so much nicer that just a green lawn, though I still have a lot of that too. Now if I had a gazebo it would take up more green grass. : )

  3. I do love gazebos as well! Nothing like wildflowers popping up to brighten your day. Good for you to walk that many miles.

    1. I really enjoy my morning walk so it is easy for me to do. : )

  4. I guess I missed it...how/when did you start your meadow?

    1. I guess about 6 weeks or so ago. I'm just not mowing a piece of the back yard where I have the bird feeders.

  5. I'm sure Ken could build you a beautiful gazebo.
    Your meadow will look gorgeous when all the wild flowers are established.
    Have a great weekend :)

    1. Yes, Ken could build a beautiful gazebo. He can put it on the list of projects after the cabin and patio are finished. : )
