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

A Walk and a day at Happy Trails

๐ŸŒป     ๐ŸŒป     ๐ŸŒป
Perfect spring morning for taking a walk.  60 degrees and sunny.  
I was up and out right on time at 6:30.  
Walked around town, both cemeteries and the ball park loop.  
Don't usually walk around the little town pond because the grass is wet 
but it was dry today so walked around the pond.  

Pretty daffodils along the way
and forsythia.
The snow and cold didn't seem to bother them.

Lisa was out running and today I met the woman I saw walking yesterday.
As I was leaving one of the cemeteries she was just getting there.
Her name is Gail and she used to walk few years ago and is
now tying to get started again.

It sure was a beautiful morning to be outside.
Walked 6.3 miles

Though it is Tuesday and bowling day we didn't go.
Just too nice out to spend it inside so right after breakfast we headed
up to Happy Trails and spent the day there.
 Ken had fun digging up rocks with the tractor and I helped
load rocks into the bucket loader.  Then they were dumped over by the
rock crusher and await there to be crushed another day.

Ken got a fire barrel going and I fed it scrap wood for a good part of
the day.  It was nice to see the huge pile disappear!!

Walked around like we usually do figuring out what other
projects need to be done.

Didn't get back home till a little after 5:00.  Didn't feel like cooking
so after showers we went to Brenda's for supper.

A couple of squirrels come to the feeders in our back yard too
and here is one of them.
That's it for today.
Hope yours was a good one too.
