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 surprise breakfast

This is one reason it is nice to take an early morning walk.
Good Morning
๐ŸŒผ     ๐ŸŒผ     ๐ŸŒผ     ๐ŸŒผ
52 degrees this morning but once the sun rose it warmed up to the 70's pretty quickly.

I first walked to the library dropped the book I finished reading down the book drop.
Then continued walking around town.
Walking past the town pond I heard what seemed like hundreds of birds perched in the cattails around the pond.  They gave me my own personal concert.

Down by the Drane house is this old barn that I've taken so many pictures of.
I just had to take another.  Behind me the sun was shining and here the barn is in a cloud.  You can make out a horse standing there eating too if you look close.
 Pretty quiet around town this morning.  Didn't see anyone else out.
Walked 6 miles
Sunrise 6:58
Sunset 7:27

When I got back home and walked in the door I smelled a delicious smell.
Ken surprised me and made us danish for breakfast.
It was a complete surprise.  What a guy!! 
Ken went up to Happy Trails today and I stayed home and this time I actually did get some cleaning done.
Also had some time for a little reading and sitting out on the porch.
 Didn't get to the store for any ice cream yet.
Maybe tomorrow.
A happy day to you.

  14. Oooh, that sunrise is gorgeous! Love the colors. You got a great shot of that barn in the cloud, and it must have been a treat listening to those birds. It is always pretty awesome to see the huge flocks of birds in the fall. Seeing the Danish pastries is making me hungry! We get them at Casey's gas station/convenience store for breakfast sometimes when we are travelling. They are so good!
