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

Barn Collective

A couple of barns of the many we pass on the way to church.

Linking up with Tom for his Barn Collective series.
Why not join us and post a barn picture too.

 Everything is fine and dandy
just taking a bit of a blog break.
Be back soon.
By the way this post is number 2,786.

I'm reading Belgrave Square by Anne Perry
and wrote down a quote from the book that I liked.

"Too much happiness is lost because we spend our time 
regretting the past and seeking for the future 
and miss what we are given for the moment at hand.  
The gift to be happy is a blessing to all around."


  1. ...your first barn would look right at home here, but the second one with the arch roof would be a rare sight. Silos always add to the scene. Thanks for sharing and please stop back again.

  2. Great looking barns. - I liked that quote a lot. - Hope your break is a nice one.
    If you subscribe to my blog via e-mail for updates you may need to resubscribed since I switched e-mail addresses again this past week. Have a great day.

  3. Great barn photos. Enjoy your blog break! Happy Monday, enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  4. I love seeing barns. No matter how nice or how shabby they all make beautiful pictures. Enjoy your break. You will be missed.
