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

Linking up the Good Fences again this Thursday.
๐Ÿ„     ๐Ÿ„     ๐Ÿ„
This morning I left the house at 6:40 and it was 32 degrees 
with a pretty dense fog and no wind.

Walked on the couple of streets behind my house and then continued on around town up and down all the streets.  Made it around both cemeteries and the ball park loop also.

It was kind of neat being in the fog.  Things are a bit muffled and I could hear cars in the distance but not see them.  Some crows were making a bit of a racket and I did see a rabbit hop across the road in the cemetery in front of me.

The only person I saw was Kathy and it was a bit funny.
I was walking in one direction and her in another.
Then we both just appeared out of the fog and we both laughed.

Walked 6 miles

After breakfast the fog burned off and we had a nice warmish sunny day.
Ken went up to Happy Trails again.
It was Blankets for Babies again this Thursday at church and I went there.
Handed over the blanket that I just finished knitting.
(pictured on a post a couple of days ago)
I've started another blanket, this time a weave-it one.
There were 7 of us there today making blankets.
For those of you who are new readers, we make blankets and then
bring them over to the local hospital for the new born babies.
A nice card is attached with an invitation to visit our church.

After I left there I stopped in Walmart on the way home
to pick up a few things and I bought my first Christmas present.

I wish you a happy day.

"A hug is an amazing thing
It's just the perfect way
To show the love we're feeling
But can't find the words to say."

PomPom - At the top of the page right under the header picture click on Walk it tells my story of walking.

 Vee - People come from all over to buy the cookies at the Drane House and they buy dozens at a time.  It really is quite the event around here.  Yes, the money goes to keeping up the house. 

Betsy -  Thanks for identifying Mountain Ash.  I'll try to remember it.๐Ÿ˜Š


  1. I imagine it's very peaceful walking in the mist. The blanket making is a lovely idea xx

  2. Hello, I agree it is a peaceful feeling walking in the fog. It is wonderful you and your church group are making the baby blankets. I love the hug quote. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  3. Love the amazing fog photos! ~ thanks!

    And I too knit for 'soldiers', babies, and children' at a local church ~ delightful!

    Wishing you a peaceful weekend ~ ^_^

  4. Great to see your fog photo's - it sort of adds to the atmosphere of the photo doesn't it.

    I think your baby blanket knits are such a good idea.

    I agree with Eileen, I love the hug quote, I've not come across it before.

    All the best Jan

  5. I commend your group in caring for the new little ones and reaching out softly to invite all to your church. This is a perfect way to do it.

  6. I love these1 And I like the idea of the blankets for babies.

  7. We already getting Christmas presents too. My wife mailed her friend in Japan a letter for a Christmas card. We're not sure how long it takes, but she'll most likely get it early.

  8. I like your fence gate. Just the right amount of rustic and mist!

  9. I think I may have mentioned it before, but I love those foggy scenes.The fog makes for some interning photos.I don't like driving in it,though.

  10. Fog does have it's charm. I enjoy it except if I have to drive in it. Then it tends to make me sleepy. I hope you have a blessed weekend.

  11. Hi Happyone, I really enjoy all your photos, but especially the ones of the Drane House over the last few posts. The photos through the window were actually quite amazing as parts of them came out sharp as tacks. Very nice! In this post, my favorite pic is the scene with fog. We get a good bit of fog here on the Puget Sound and it often creates some beautiful scenes. Wishing you and Ken a fine weekend ahead!

  12. That's a pea soup fog for sure! how comical to bump into Kathy!

  13. Good Fence find, I like the look of the fog and really I think fog is rather "fun" to be out in unless you're driving in it.
