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

Cold but sunny

A log truck.
We see quite a few of these come rolling through town.
 ๐ŸŽˆ     ๐ŸŽˆ     ๐ŸŽˆ
A chilly morning at 24 degrees with a bit of a wind.
I was very happy to see and feel the sun come up over the mountain.
My usual walk all over town and now that the snow is gone I can walk around
around both cemeteries again.
The cemetery by the Drane house has had a bird nest in the one corner
and today I noticed another one that was just put up in the other corner.
There were swallows in the one last year.
 Another quiet morning around town, no one else out walking or running.

Walked 6.2 miles
Found 2 pennies
๐ŸŽˆ     ๐ŸŽˆ     ๐ŸŽˆ
I did check into the Detective Murdoch books by Maureen Jennings
and though none of the libraries around here have them the library
can get them so I put the first one on reserve.
Except the Dying

We drove down to LaVale this morning to do a couple of errands.

This afternoon we started another puzzle.  There are just three more
left to do from the ones Ken got at the auction and then
I'll be done puzzling until next winter.

Got a bit of work done around the house too and did some

A happy day to you.

  1. Those log trucks are something else. Carroll was telling me this evening that when he was coming home that traffic was being held up by the trash truck...a very long of cars...and then a log truck came around the turn traveling at a pretty good speed. He said the driver put his brakes on and went skidding before he was able to stop. Thankfully he got stopped before he hit the vehicle in front of him. That would have been quite a chain reaction.

    I hope you have a good remainder to your week.

  2. Hi Karen, we enjoyed the sun today too but it was chilly!
    It will be interesting to see if any birds use the bird houses at the Drane House.
    Hope you enjoy the Murdoch Mystery book!

  3. Your snow seems to have quickly melted away. Those log trucks are so big! Enjoy finishing your puzzles xx

  4. ...log trucks are a common sight for me when I'm in the Adirondack Mountains.

  5. We see a lot of those types of trucks here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm way behind on steps but I've got some good time in for holding a baby!

  6. We have a fair amount of those log trucks, too. I know you must enjoy your walking.

  7. I think I will check on those books at my library too. I love mysteries. I walked tonight...after skipping quite a few days. It felt great to get out and walk. Enjoy your evening and thanks so much for the prayers. Hugs, Diane

  8. With all the walking you do, you must be very thankful that the snow and icy conditions are about finished for this winter.

  9. I love to see the views you see as you walk. Of all the series I have watched, I have not watched the Murdock series...

  10. Hello, it is cold and sunny here too. So glad to see the snow melting, I am looking forward to the spring flowers. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  11. The log trucks fly down the roads in Wales when we visit and I always feel concern for the sheep.
    Have a wonderful Thursday :)
