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

Rolled Hay

Rolled hay looks a lot bigger when you are standing right next to it
like I am here taking this picture.
I am 5'5" and it is just a little bit taller than me.

This morning it wasn't quite as cool as yesterday with a temperature of 58 and a mix of sun and clouds.

I walked down the main road but in the opposite direction of Happy Trails this time. Turned around and on the way back made a loop around in the industrial park.
Then walked through town and down toward Happy Trails, then turned around again and walked home.

Queen Anne's Lace is now blooming all along the edges of the roads.
Lee was out on his bike again and I got a couple more pieces of peppermint candy.  : )

Saw a few rabbits and a ground hog all around the industrial park.
Coming home and turning up the driveway I took this picture of the daisies all starting to bloom.  In a day or two they should all be blooming.
Then up at the top of my driveway three of the sunflowers are doing nicely.  They still have quite a lot of growing to do but they now come up to the middle of my thigh.
I walked 6.4 miles.
Started off the new month of July by finding a new penny.
The month of June was a good month for finding dimes.  I picked up 6 of them and also 6 pennies for a total of 66 cents.

Ken went out in the morning and I did a few things around the house.

Pastor and Kathy invited us out to lunch at Uno's today and we met there at 1:00.  So nice having lunch with them.  What a blessing it is being a part of their church and being their friends too. : )

My clothes lines were getting a bit frayed and Ken replaced all the lines for me.  Glad it was done before the lines actually broke with clothes on the line.  That happened to my mom one time many years ago and all the clothes fell in the mud and had to be washed all over again.  It was the only time I ever heard my mother curse!!

It clouded up during the afternoon and that's when I went out and mowed the lawn.  It was supposed to rain and I wanted to get the lawn done before it rained but it never did rain and the sun came out again.
Now I guess I'll have to water the gardens.

A happy day to you.

It is easy to take liberty for granted,
when you have never had it taken from you.

Thanks Jan, for the celery advice.  Will keep you posted on how it grows.


  1. I am enjoying all the pictures you post.Wildflowers are so pretty.

  2. enjoyed your photos of the daisies. thanks for sharing.

  3. I love the fragrance of newly-mown hay! We had a Uno's in a nearby town at one point, but they closed. We always loved going there.

  4. I have found a lot of loose change in the parking lot at work. And nobody ever parks near me. Never understood that. More dimes than pennies too. And someone left their Aldi cart five feet away from the actual station, so I got me an extra quarter

  5. How nice to have new lines on your clothesline!

  6. I love seeing hay rolls when driving out in the country! You really accomplished a lot and had some enjoyable time as well. Love Queen's Ann's Lace. My Daisies are just starting to bloom as well. Sure do love them!

  7. I love your flowers. So nice that you and Ken are good friends with your pastor and his wife. Hope you have a great weekend.

  8. It never does rain when we want it to does it. I enjoyed your post.


  9. I've never been that close up to a bale of rolled hay, it is big isn't it!
    Good luck with the celery - keep us posted.

    Best wishes for a pleasant weekend

    All the best Jan

  10. Love the big rolls of hay. They look so pretty scattered all over a field.
    Have a nice day!

  11. We used to pick the lace flowers and have mom place them in food coloring. It was always fun to see them take on different colors.
