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

Home again

๐Ÿ‚     ๐Ÿ‚     ๐Ÿ‚     ๐Ÿ‚
We had a wonderful time visiting with Bernice and Chuck.
We left Monday after my walk and got there mid afternoon.  
It's a six hour drive including a stop for lunch.
Here we are crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
 They live in Little Egg Harbor, NJ which is down the shore on the bay side.
It had been two years since we had seen each other but once I saw her
it seemed hardly any time at all had passed.  
We spent the night there and had a lovely morning with them and
left for home mid afternoon.
Maggie is their dog and she is quite a character and we liked her
right away and I'm pretty sure she liked us too.  ๐Ÿ˜Š
 I'm hoping the three of them will visit us here one of these days.
๐Ÿ     ๐Ÿ     ๐Ÿ     ๐Ÿ
This morning here at home was back to normal and my day started as 
usual with my morning walk.
51 degrees and cloudy.

I walked the farm loop and I'm happy to say no goats followed me this time.
It was the first time I've walked passed since that day.

The farmers have started mowing down the corn
 and the soy beans in this field are all gone now.
Passing by Farmer Bill's place I noticed a couple of new residents there.
A couple of llamas.
Heading back to the main road up here.
Back in town I walked a loop around town and one of the cemeteries.
Didn't see anyone else out walking.

Walked 6.2 miles
Found my first coin this month, a nickel
๐Ÿ     ๐Ÿ     ๐Ÿ     ๐Ÿ
 I had a day outside working in the yard today.
Mowed the lawn and did a good bit of weeding too.  Cut down some of the sunflowers but left them out so the birds could get the seeds.

Straightened the back shed out a bit and finally just sat in the
swing for a while before coming back in the house.
It was a bit chilly and kept my sweatshirt on while working.
Was mostly cloudy but did the see the sun once in a while.
Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and I'll get my laundry done then.

A happy day to you.

You can always tell when two people are best friends 
because they are having more fun that it makes 
sense for them to be having.
