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.

Saturday's Critters

Linking up with Eileen this Saturday for Saturday's Critters.
 ๐Ÿ‡     ๐Ÿ‡
60 degrees with a hazy sun when I walked early this morning.
Walked around the industrial park.  There's only a handful of businesses
so it is really a nicer place to walk than it sounds.
That was the first half of my walk.
The second half I walked around town, one of the cemeteries and I lastly
walked around the ball park loop because it is mostly in the shade and I
was hot by that time.

Rebeca was out walking and a saw a walker I haven't seen before.

We have nice new lines painted on the roads.
I peeked inside the Bakery/Deli that will be opening in town one of these days
and saw the biggest rolling pin you can imagine sitting in there on the floor.
It must be going to be hung outside on the building somehow.
It will certainly get peoples attention.
I'll take a picture once they put it up.

Walked 6.3 miles
๐Ÿ‡     ๐Ÿ‡  
Ken went up to Happy Trails to meet with Ronnie our builder and the
excavator who will be clearing the land and now we know where the house
will be built.
The good news is that we don't have to have it perked again but will
use the spot that has already been perked by the previous owners.

While Ken was up there I was at home baking Snickerdoodles.
It is my turn again to bring snacks for the kids at church tomorrow.
Last time the Snickerdoodles were a big hit not only with the kids
but some of the teachers as well.
 While baking I didn't eat a one and that was VERY HARD to do!!!

Ken was home for lunch and then went back up to HT in the afternoon.
I stayed home and got the lawn mowed.
Did some more weeding.
Hung the 2 little garden flags in the vegetable garden that I bought back
in March.
Harvested the latest bunch of rhubarb.  It won't be long before
I'll be making a rhubarb cobbler.  ๐Ÿ˜Š

Then I sat on the swing for a little while in the shade
before going in to get cleaned up and cook supper.
Made another new recipe this evening for supper,
Pepper Ricotta Primavera,
and I've already posted on my recipe blog.

Now it is time for some rest and relaxation.

A happy day do you.

PomPom - Yes, I do have a hula hoe but honestly I don't like it.  I like to weed with a little garden shovel sitting on the ground and dig and pull.  Then I fluff up the dirt with a little garden rake tool. 


  1. I've heard if you spread cornmeal around in the ground, weeds won't grow. Guess I'm lazier than most as I'm going to try this. How nice to have a new bakery soon. Your town sounds like the perfect place.

  2. I didn't like my hula hoe the first season I had it because I think it arrived in the middle of summer when the dirt was hard. Soon the dirt will be hard again. Boo!
    I bet you are getting excited about your new house even though it is in the beginning stages.

  3. Why don't you like it? The hula hoe that is... I sure love mine...love may be too strong a word, but I really like it a lot.

    Plans are coming right along at Happy Trails...it is good to know what the next thing is...

  4. A bakery/deli? That sounds like a good addition to the town!

  5. It is a good thing I don't live next to a bakery...but I did used to work in this little local bakery. All we made was Italian bread and breadsticks and French bread....and soon as we pulled out some of the Italian bread, we would tear a loaf open and always had butter. YUMMY!

  6. Hello, love the cute bunny. I see them here and they run away quickly. I was wondering will your walking route be the same when your new home is built. You do have pretty scenery while walking. Your dinner sounds delicious, I will check out the recipe. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  7. Now that is a very cute critter. We have just started seeing a bunny in our yard. As long as he stays away from my vegetable garden, we're good.
    I am looking forward to seeing that big rolling pin.

  8. We have wild bunnies visiting here everyday. Sounds like a day where that dinner would really hit the spot.

  9. Love to see a bit of wildlife, we don't get much here, though the park nearby has lots of squirrels xx

  10. What a cute looking bunny in your photograph.
    A bakery/deli does sound good and I look forward to seeing the very large rolling pin!

    All the best Jan

  11. The bunny is adorable! Glad the plan for the house is moving along :)
