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.

'Downtown'

Fall Weeds
Looks like snow but it's not.
🍂     🍂     🍂     🍂
This morning it was 34 degrees but things warmed up quickly 
when the sun came out.

Had a nice walk around the Farm Loop.
Haven't seen those goats since they followed me that one time.
I saw a couple of deer which was nice because I haven't seen them around 
for a while.  They must be hiding from the hunters.

No school today so there were no bus drivers to wave to
but nice not having any cars on the road up to the school.

Walked around town too before going back home.
Walked 6 miles
🚶     🚶     🚶     🚶
I had to chuckle at a comment I got from RC yesterday asking
if I would give a glimpse of the downtown area in my town.  She said it would be fun
to see what the shopping area looks like.
My town has no shopping area.  😊
It is just a wide spot in the road and not even that wide.
A lot of people pass through town on their way to Deep Creek Lake.
Anyway that said here's a few pictures from 'Downtown.'
There is a half mile of sidewalk on the main road.
There's a bank down there on the right.
The Firefly cheese store is on the left and across the street is the
Moonshadow Cafe and Bar. 
A car dealership is on the main road too down on the left.
A corner souvenir shop with some old things and collector items on the corner.
 Just off the main street is our dentist 
and Shear Delight where I get my hair cut by Sherry.
 Where the sidewalk ends going south
there is a Dollar General, an ace hardware store, a lumber yard,
a gas station, laundromat, and car wash.
And of course Annie's Kitchen which is nothing fancy
but serves good food.

The library, post office, fire department are on side streets.
 🏠     🏠     🏠     🏠
We had blueberry pancakes for breakfast and then 
we walked over to the fire department and voted.

It is Tuesday and that means bowling day.
Not a great bowling day for me but I was consistent,
123, 124, and 124 in that order.

A quick trip to Walmart after bowling for some grocery shopping
and then home.

This evening I'll be reading a book that I have to finish for
tomorrows book club.  It's not a very big book and I'm a little
more than half finished with it.

A happy day to you.

Robin - I found all the barns with quilt barn squares on them on line.  There was a list of all of them in my county with directions on where they were.

  4. The plant in that header photo is really interesting! It really does look like snow. I've no idea what it could be.

  5. Hi Karen, thanks for answering my question. Also thank you for sharing the photos of your downtown. Our downtown is similar but with a few more stores. No fast food restaurants, they are far away from downtown!
    Have a good day.

  10. thank you so much for giving us a quick view of the world around you. I was actually surprised that there were many more businesses than I was expecting to see. My husband and I take 3 or 4 road trips a year and we always get off the large roads and drive through the small towns like yours and try to find local cafes where we can enjoy the local food and talk to the townspeople there.
