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

It was 52 degrees this morning with sun and low hanging clouds
Started my walk up behind the hill in back of my house.
Then through town and up Sale Barn a little ways,
Down towards HT and then back to town.
Around both cemeteries and the ball park loop.
Rebecca was out walking her dog,  another woman who I see but don't know her name was walking her dog also.  
Kathy and I stopped for a bit of a chat.  
We got to know each other a little bit better.  
You might wonder why we don't just walk together. 
We both like walking alone.  
A good time to think and reflect and it's my morning prayer time.
Walked 6.5 miles.
Sunrise 6:50
Sunset 7:40

Last night at church was a bit different than I thought.
I thought it was a family singing but it was just the mother who sang and her son played the guitar.  She had a beautiful voice and it was such a blessing to hear her sing.
The hymns she sang were from the 1700's and ones that I had never heard.

It is Tuesday once again so off we went for a fun time of bowling.
There were 9 of us bowling today.
The two lanes we were bowling on kept having trouble so we
were moved to different ones.

After bowling we picked up a few things at Walmart before coming home.

This evening I'll be working on some more weave-its, I'm almost done with the latest baby blanket.
I have a couple more days to finish reading my book for my book club meeting,
so I'll probably read some of that too.
We meet on Thursday this month instead of the usual Wednesday.

That's been my day.
A happy day to you.
"Almost every man wastes part of his life in attempts
to display qualities which he does not possess,
and to gain applause which he cannot keep."
~ Samuel Johnson


  1. Glad you had a fun time at bowling.
    Your last photo is gorgeous ...

    Hope you manage to finish your book in time for Thursday.

    All the best Jan

  2. Spectacular photos Karen! You could be a professional photographer.
    Sounds like you had a nice day.
    Take care!

  3. I love it that your walking time is your praying time!

  4. Wow! Gorgeous photos ♥


  5. I really like that misty farm scene you captured.
    I can understand why you and Kathy would enjoy your morning walks alone. I think it's a wonderful time for saying prayers too.

  6. Hello, the first photo and scene is beautiful. I also love the cows and horse. Lovely images from your walk. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  7. Beautiful photos! Your morning walks would seem magical! I prefer to walk alone too. I can walk at my own pace and think and pray. Have a good day.

  8. I know what you mean, it's nice to stop and say hello or catch up, but it's also good to be able to walk and think by oneself. Lovely pictures xx

  9. LOVE your foggy barn pic! Awesome!

  10. Love the foggy farm pic! Hope you have a happy day!

  11. The calmness in this beautiful area first thing in the morning makes for an ideal place to meet with God!

  12. Sounds like you had a good walk today... I wish our morning temperatures would go down into the 50's.... SOON--I hope...

    Glad you enjoyed the church service... Old hymns from the 1700's were VERY different from today's music...

    Great foggy picture...

  13. My day was pretty much at work, but that's OK! Glad you got in a good walk and did some other fun things!

  14. One bowling alley near me used to always give us the lanes that never worked.
