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

Money cupcakes

๐Ÿšœ     ๐Ÿšœ     ๐Ÿšœ     ๐Ÿšœ
Had fun playing Mexican Train last night.  
If you have never played it you can read about it HERE.

Started walking at 7:45 this morning and though the sun wasn't up yet it
wasn't dark out.  Sunrise was at 7:51.  It was 31 degrees.

Since it wasn't dark I decided to walk the Farm Loop.
Nice to walk that way for a change.
It has been longer than I thought since I walked this route because
this house has popped up here since I've been here last.
Still more work before people move in but I was surprised to see this much done.
The house is on a smallish lot but right next door is a farm
and these horses were over by the fence.
Once I got back to the main road I went to the industrial park
 and walked around there.  I saw another woman walking there, 
one who I've never seen before.  We said hi and good morning as we passed by each other.  This is the first time I've seen any one else walking there ever.

Then walked home.
Walked 6 miles
Found a penny

After breakfast I got busy baking cupcakes.  Four dozen of them.
These aren't just any old cupcakes though.  I've made them for the kids
at Sunday School for tomorrow.
It is a special day for them because these are money cupcakes.
Inside each cupcake is money.  A $1, $5, or $10 bill.
The money is folded up and wrapped in tin foil, put in the bottom
of the cupcake paper and then the batter is poured over them.
Then  baked as usual.
Most of the cupcakes have $1 and just a couple have the big bucks.
They do this once a year in Sunday School.  I baked the cupcakes last year too.

 Another nice sunny day though a bit cooler than yesterday
but still a good day for getting more laundry done.

After lunch we went for a ride to find more quilt barns for Mondays
Quilt Barn posts.  We got four more so I'm set for another month.

Home for a nice quiet evening.
Life is Good
A happy day to you.

  1. I'm sure the children love those cupcakes.They look delicious.

  2. I could handle one of those cupcakes! Make it a $10.00 one.

  3. Hello, I love the view of the cows and horses. The money cupcakes is a cute idea for the kiddies. The do look delicious. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  4. Lovely photos Karen. Looks like you had a heavy frost. Funny, we both posted photos of horses on Saturday!
    Your cupcakes look delicious and with an extra surprise inside too!
    Have a lovely Sunday.

  5. What a fun idea for the cupcakes. Never heard of that!

  6. Such a fun and pretty post. I love that shot of the horses and the frosty morning.

  7. Oh wow ... that top photo is simply stunning.
    Love the idea of the money cupcakes.

    All the best Jan

  8. Perfect cupcakes! Sweetness and money both. The ground in the horse photo looks like snow. I'm sure you are happy being able to walk in the daylight now. Have a great evening.

  9. Interesting how the bills can survive the temperatures

  10. Hi, Love the idea of the Money Cupcakes... Are the children asked to find a way to help someone with their money --instead of spending it on themselves? Great mission project for them...

    You all have already had some fairly cold temperatures up there. BUT--I'll bet that is normal for you this time of year. We still haven't had much cold weather at all. Even our Hostas are trying to get new Spring growth.. Everything is confused.... We still haven't had any rain either --so it's been a crazy Fall for us...

    Love seeing the Quilt barns.... Glad you found some more.
