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

Linking up today with Eileen for Saturday's Critters.

Woke up this morning to a thunder storm and that is one of the times 
I don't go walking.

By 8:00 though the storm passed so I left then.  It was 60 degrees
and cloudy, though I did get caught in a shower half way through my walk
 for about a mile.  A bit windy so I dried off by the time I got home.

 Walked around town, the ball park loop and the cemeteries but didn't see
anyone else out today.

A few bunnies were hopping about at the one cemetery.

Walked 6 miles
Found a nickel and a penny

Enjoyed our time at the auction last night with Dianna and Carroll.
She surprised me with a couple more bars of her homemade soap
which I REALLY LIKE.  
Thanks Dianna!
The only thing we bid on and got was a few garden tools.

Ken went up to Happy Trails in the morning  and I stayed home doing
the usual morning house chores.
Then I headed outside and got the other front garden all weeded.
That was done by 1:30 just as Ken got back home.

Had a late lunch and then we got in the car and went
to Morgantown to do a few errands there and stopped at an
Asian restaurant, the Asian Bistro for supper.
I think it was our Pastor who recommended it.
I ordered Cashew Chicken and it was very good.  It came with a salad
and a spring roll.  Reasonably priced and I'm sure we will go again.
Nice to be home now for a nice relaxing evening.

A happy day to you.

Kim - Just want to clear up that the phlox in yesterdays post was NOT in my yard though I wish it was.  Just snapped the picture along my walk.

Rose - The book I picked up at the library for the book club was A Man Called Ove by Fredrik  Backman.


  1. ...I've yet to see a redwing blackbird this year.

  2. Wonderful photographs, I especially like your first one.

    I hope you had a nice evening relaxing after your busy day.

    All the best Jan

  3. We had storms off and on through the night here last night! But it turned out to be a sunshiny day in the end...and a bit muggy.

    I have to ask...has Ken had you out there using any of those tools from last night's auction? :)

    I'm so glad that you liked the soap. I am always happy to share with you.

  4. Thanks for telling me which book...will see if our library has it for kindle. I don't know why I ask...I could never read all the books on my kindle already but I still borrow books.

    That squirrel is so, so cute...

  5. I have heard such good things about that book you are reading - A Man Called Ove. It is on my "to read"list. Homemade soap - such a thoughtful gift! Have a wonderful Sunday.

  6. Hi Karen, I read "A Man called Ove" a few months ago, I enjoyed it very much. Apparently it is (will be?) made into a movie.
    Glad you had a good time at the auction!

  7. A good day filled with critters, walking, chores and good eats!

  8. I love God's critters, and taking walks with you! I also like Asian food, and have always wanted to make it but just haven't taken the time! maybe someday when I slow down! DH and I love auctions, and always spend way to much!
    Hope you are having a great weekend!.

  9. Loving your wildlife photos and the chicken does look very tasty :)

  10. Hello, I have always loved the redwing blackbirds. Cute squirrel. The Dinner looks yummy. Sounds like you had a nice day. I am sorry to be so late visiting your post and commenting. I appreciate you linking up your post. Happy Mother's Day! Enjoy your day!
