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

It Works

๐ŸŒผ     ๐ŸŒผ     ๐ŸŒผ
It was 60 degrees this morning and cloudy when I left on my walk.
I got rained on a few times and got a bit wet but it was 60 degrees
so didn't get cold.

Walked to the library first and dropped a book down the slot,
then continued my walk all around town, the cemeteries
and the ball park loop.  
Gail was walking and we stopped for a little chat.
She IS the one who we see at Brenda's!!  
The forsythias around town have started to turn green already.
Sure wish they bloomed longer, they are so pretty.
Everything is so nice and green, we've been getting a lot of rain
but lots of sunshine too.

  Got a call from the Dentist about changing our appointment next month 
and stopped in before coming home to tell Sandy that it was 
fine with us.

Walked 6.2 miles
Found a quarter and a dime
๐ŸŒผ     ๐ŸŒผ     ๐ŸŒผ
We had rain and sun all throughout the day.
While it rained in the morning I did a few things around the house
and then read a while.

In the afternoon Ken hooked up our other trailer to the truck
and the brakes worked fine.
Then when he tried the new dump trailer they were fine too.
So the problem now is no problem.
Must be a God Thing. ๐Ÿ˜Š
So we went to the stone place and got a ton and a half of gravel
for the driveway at Happy Trails.
Here is the trailer with its very first load.
Doesn't look like much gravel in there does it.
Dumped the stone up at HT.  So nice just being able to dump it instead
of shoveling it out.  It worked great.

Back at the house I did a bit more weeding in the front garden.
It was easy weeding because of all the rain.

So that's been my day.
Looking forward to a nice relaxing evening.
Hope your day was a happy one.

  1. Sounds like a lovely day, hope it's a lovely evening for you too xx

  2. That trailer will pay for itself in avoiding back pain. so worthwhile!

  3. "So the problem now is no problem."

    Yippee - that's good.
    Your new trailer is going to make your life much easier ...and ease any back pain!
    A winning situation.

    So pleased you've had a good day, now enjoy your evening.
    Have a good weekend too

    All the best Jan

  4. ...the first image is fabulous.

  5. I was just thinking how nice and green it looks there. Quite a difference for all the snow pictures. Can't believe you found a quarter and a dime! That's a lot to find. :)

  6. You have such beautiful views to enjoy as you walk!

  7. A busy day is often a good day.I am sure just being able to dump a load is so much easier than having to shovel.

  8. even a bunch of gravel doesn't seem to ever go far especially when they're in bags. I've seen some crazy long driveways, gotta cost a fortune to pave them

  9. You walked a 10K! I am trying to figure out how to walk more but with the 9 hour work days to get every other Friday off there is just not a lot of time. This time next year, that should not be a problem. No, half a ton of gravel does not go really far (unless you are shoveling it by hand!)

  10. Another good quote! I copied and posted it on my Facebook page

  11. Hello, pretty scenes from your walk. YAY for no problems. It is raining here this morning, so I must walk on my treadmill. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  12. I'm glad your trailer is working okay now. I always enjoy reading about your walks. Have a great day.

  13. Your weather seems about the same as ours at the moment.
    So glad the trailer problem was a no problem!

  14. Great quote from Charly Kuralt. I really used to like listening to him on the news. Glad to hear the brakes are working OK now. Everything is sure pretty and green there where you are - lovely. Have a good weekend!

  15. Glad nothing was wrong with your trailer. Like you we have been receiving a lot of rain. Everything is pretty lush and green here too.
    Have a good evening.

  16. You are the best walker I "know". Love that first shot.

  17. Glad the trailer is working...those things are the best. I already miss John's. Sold it to help pay the taxes.

    The first picture is so pretty. An artist could paint it!
