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

Good Fences and Happy Thanksgiving

  TexWisGirl is retiring her blog after today 
so this will be the last Good Fences with her.
Thanks for hosting for all those Thursdays.

๐Ÿ—     ๐Ÿ—     ๐Ÿ—
What a difference in temperature from yesterday morning.
Today it was 44 degrees.  Rained a bit over night and this morning it was just wet but was supposed to rain so I took along my umbrella.

Walked the Farm Loop and since it didn't rain the whole time, as I passed by
my house afterward I dropped off my umbrella and then continued walking
around town.  I got to the other end of town and it started raining!!  Not hard though so I just got a little damp by the time I got home.

As expected there was no one else out early this Thanksgiving morning
and just a few cars.

Walked 6.3 miles
๐Ÿ—     ๐Ÿ—     ๐Ÿ—
Just a quiet Thanksgiving here at our house, just Ken and I.
We aren't even have turkey but having ham instead.
Still it will be a nice day and we are thankful for all our many blessings.
 The second jigsaw puzzle is turning out to be pretty hard.  Not much in the
way of different colors.  This one may take a while.

The first and last verses of Psalms 118 are exactly the same.

O give thanks unto the Lord;
for he is good:
because his mercy endureth for ever.
