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.

Saturday's Critters and HT

These cows live across the road from us at Happy Trails.
The  mother was licking her baby clean like a cat.  
He just stood there while mom gave him a bath.
 Linking up with Eileen for Saturday's Critters.

When I left this morning on my walk it had stopped raining and things were drying out.
I walked one of my town routes.
Walking by the cemetery I saw a rabbit and also so something cross the
street a few yards ahead of me, a skunk. 
It was too dark to take a picture and maybe that was a good thing.
I sure wouldn't want to startle him.

Here the sun is coming over a bank of clouds and we eventually had a sunny day.
At the small cemetery on the side road, I walked among the graves.
This newborn baby girl wasn't here very long.  
So sad to see the graves of babies.
 
Walked 6.2 miles
Temperature was 50 degrees F.
10 degrees C.

The month of September was not so good finding coins.
28 cents
A quarter and three pennies.

 We spent the day up at Happy Trails.
The lane that runs along our property up to the driveway,
gets pretty over grown on the sides with hanging trees and brush.
So today we spent the day cutting down trees and clearing up the brush.
We got about a quarter of it done.  

Before coming home we walked around HT for a little while on a couple of the trails.
Then we sat out on the deck of the cabin for a little while
and watched the clouds race across the sky.
We stayed there till supper time and then came home.
How blessed we are to have Happy Trails.

A happy day to you.

  5. It's also odd to see the years of them be so far back. They'd most likely be dead by now if they had survived infancy. Infants used to have a terrible living record back before modern medicine.

  7. Great photos of the cows. We have been having a couple cloudy days too. We still need much more rain as the creeks and rivers are very low. Wonderful quote as always.
