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

Mr Fox

Didn't take any good pictures this morning so posting an old one 
of Mr Fox from a few years ago. 
One of my favorites.

70 degrees once again this morning with no breeze and it was cloudy.  

I walked up the hills behind my house, then through town, up Barn Sale and down toward HT.  Back to town, around the cemeteries and the ball park.  The same route as yesterday.  

Not much activity around this morning.  No others out walking and no animals around either.  Just a few birds and the geese over by the pond.

I had about a mile left on my walk when I felt a couple of raindrops and before long there was a very light drizzle and a breeze.  Since I was hot the rain felt wonderful.  : )
Walking down toward HT
Walked 6.4 miles.
Sunrise 6:13
Sunset 8:34

 We went to church today for few hours to work on the Fingerprint Ministry.  Back in Feb. I did a post on Fingerprints and if you don't know what it is about you can read about it HERE.

We worked from 10 to 2:30 and there were about 20 people who where there for some of the time.  Always enjoy doing this.  Not just putting the books together but talking and laughing with all the others there too.  I was one of the staplers again which is my favorite part.

Worked a while, had a break for lunch of chicken, beans and coleslaw then back to work.

When we got home both Ken and I sat in our chairs and before long both of us had fallen asleep!!  I guess we needed a nap. : )

Enjoying a nice evening at home.  

Hope your day was a happy one.

  1. Yup, that's how you know that you need a nap...falling asleep bolt upright in your chair. Ha! We have had evening showers and are expecting more tomorrow. It will be most welcome as it is needed.

  2. So glad you shared the photo of Mr Fox again as he's so handsome!
    You deserved your nap after all your hard work.
    Best wishes

    1. And he was so nice to stand still for the picture.

  3. What a wonderful photo of Mr. Fox. Glad you enjoyed your time working at your church. You and Ken deserve a nap now and then!
    Have a good weekend Karen!

    1. Thanks. We are blessed to have found such a wonderful Bible believing church!!

  4. Hello, I love the fox photo, he is a beauty! I wish i could take more naps, I have trouble sleeping. Love the quote. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

    1. I don't usually take naps!
      Enjoy your weekend too. : )

  5. Great photo of Mr. Fox. I actually mentioned my stray fox in my next post. Wish we could get a little rain here. Its been dry and hot for the past week.

    1. We had two inches of rain yesterday!

  6. I love how you are always helping out at church! Have a great Friday!

    1. I'm just happy we are able to help out. : )

  7. That's a beautiful fox shot. It doesn't take long with this heat to wear one out.

    1. Thanks. Glad he stood still for a picture. : )

  9. Great picture of the fox. A couple of months ago, we were walking along the golf course cart path really early in the morning.. All of a sudden two little brown baby animals ran in front of us. They were not dogs nor cats --but both of us thought they might be baby foxes... BUT--we hadn't heard at that time whether foxes were in our area... Since that happened we did some research and sure enough---we have foxes around...... Those were two precious babies --but neither of us got a picture. They were playing and moving TOO quickly....


    1. I was lucky to get a picture. Must have been nice seeing the babies.

  10. Sometimes it is so good to have a nap ... and you both must have been tired.

    I did like your fox picture.

    All the best Jan

    1. Yes, once in a while it is nice and needed. : )

  11. Any long trip always drains my energy

  12. What a wonderful photo of Mr Fox! I can see why it is a favourite :)
