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

Birthday lunch for Bettye

๐ŸŒพ     ๐ŸŒพ
Some low hanging clouds around this morning when I set out walking.
It was 52 degrees and wasn't supposed to rain until later in the morning
so figured I had plenty of time to get a dry walk in.
But that was not to be.  After about 3 miles or so a light drizzle started
and after another mile it just rained and I got soaking wet.

Walked behind my house, through town, up Barn Sale, around the one cemetery,
and the ball park loop.  A quick loop around town and home.

The wild daisies are now blooming along the edges of the road.
 Workers were working on the old bakery and I stopped and asked
them what it was to be.
A Mennonite Bakery/Deli was the answer.

Lisa was out running getting soaking wet too.
Walked 6 miles

Today is my friend Bettye's birthday and a few of us ladies met for lunch
to celebrate.  We had a nice time and I am happy to have them as
my friends.  Didn't take pictures of any food but the server took
this picture of us.  Actually three of us asked her to take pictures
and she was kind enough to do it.
Starting on the right with the birthday day girl is
Bettye ๐ŸŽ‚, Debbie, Heidi, Me, and Tricia.
I started reading the next book for my book club the Devil in the White City
and though I haven't gotten very far I already like it.

Ken has to go out in a little while and I plan to read more of it.

Hope your day was sunny and bright.
A happy day to you.

Friends are those rare people who ask how you are
and then wait for the answer.

  7. Hello, happy birthday to Bettye! Lovely photo of you and your friends. The daisies are pretty and I love the color of the trees in the first shot. Happy Memorial Day weekend to you!

  8. Happy Birthday to your friend Betty...that looks like a friendly group of women! I love the photo below the daisies...not sure why but it really appeals to me.

  9. We missed you guys last night. Their next sale is June 9.

    It looks as if you and your friends had a lovely time celebrating Bettye's birthday! I love it when a group of ladies are able to get together for good fellowship like that! :)

    When the Mennonite bakery/deli opens you will enjoy stopping by there. :) It makes me think of the Dawdy Haus Coffee in Springs, PA.

  10. Bettye looks like she is really enjoying her birthday lunch! I don't think I would like walking in the rain. Good for you! I remember many years ago walking a March of Dimes Walk-a-thon and the last half of it was in the rain! Have a great weekend!

  11. Glad you were all able to get together & enjoy Bettye's birthday!
    Our roadside daisies are blooming too!

  12. What a fine looking group of ladies. I love groups like this, with genuine friends! So glad you gave us a picture of your friends. Trying to memorize their names. Love, MJ
