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

The other side of the barn in yesterday's picture.
✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
A nice cool 54 degrees this morning.  
The sun isn't up yet when I leave now but once it was up it stayed out so I had a nice sunny walk.

Walked the Farm Loop.
Not much happening at the dairy farm.
The few cows in the front pasture barley raised their heads from eating to look at me.

Looking up was an interesting looking sky.
 And I've noticed the geese are once again flying around.
Looks like they are flying to the moon.  : )
Once back to town, I walked straight on through and a little ways up Barn Sale before turning around and heading back home.

Didn't see Kathy walking but I did see her car parked so she was around walking somewhere.

Walking past the car dealer I saw a woman and her daughter walking around looking at cars.  The daughter stopped to look at a purple Challenger.
With a little laugh her mother said,
"You have to wake up and stop dreaming."
I wonder what kind of car she ended up with.

Walked 6.2 miles
Sunrise 6:37
Sunset 8:01

It's Tuesday - bowling day.
We drove to bowling in the truck and towed the trailer with the tractor in it so
 we could stop at the church to pick up the left over mulch that wasn't needed.  
Tractor makes putting the mulch in the truck an easy task. : )

There were 7 of us bowling today.
No record breaking scores this week for Ken or me, but it was for Rebecca.
It was the first time she broke 100 with 105.
: )

We still have some of the zucchini chocolate cake left and I think I'll have a piece of that for my snack.  I'm not going to have ice cream with it this time. 

Hope your day was happy one.
happyone : )

I have another constitution question for you.

Can you name the 6 founding fathers?
Will name them tomorrow.

Bethany answered yesterday's question spot on.  
The answer was 0 and she gives a detailed answer.


  1. 54 degrees sounds wonderful! I am so ready for cooler weather here in AZ. Your cake sounds really good. Have a good evening!

  2. I love those clouds shots,as you now.

  3. Been cooler here also--and I LOVE it.. However, the heat is returning (so they say)... That was just a 2-3 day TEASE for us!!!!!! Enjoy your cool weather up there!!

  4. The barn looks very impressive from the other side. It's been very hot here recently and it makes sleeping uncomfortable.
    I love hearing and seeing the geese fly overhead.
    I wonder what car the young girl bought in the end. It's so nice to dream though!!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday Happyone :)

  5. I think I like the barn from this angle best! The morning skies with pretty colors was lovely and then to see geese, wow!

  6. Hello, the cooler weather is nice! I love the photos, the shot with the moon and geese is awesome. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  7. Oh that sky is so lovely, the cloud formation looks interesting too.

    All the best Jan
