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

Saturday's Critters

Some critters for Eileen's Saturday's Critters
One of the little red squirrels that visit my backyard feeder.
Milo, the cat that lives at the day care center in town.
Blue Birds this morning up at one of the cemeteries.
Pictures not that great because I had to zoom in but was happy to be
able to get any picture of othem

64 degrees this morning when I left on my walk.  There was a sight drizzle and 
it was once again windy though not as bad as yesterday.
Knew the umbrella wouldn't do much good so left it at home and just
figured I'd get wet.  After a mile the drizzle stopped and the rest of my walk
was just cloudy.
My walk took me all around town, behind my house, the two cemeteries,
and the ball park.
Noticed another house for sale in town, this one up the hill on my street.
Will be interesting to see what it sells for.
No others out this morning that I saw.
Walked 6.4 miles

Ken went up to Happy Trails after breakfast and I stayed home.

 In a few weeks it will be Bible Time (VBS) at our church and they
need lots of cookies for all the kids so today I made the first batch of
5 dozen chocolate chippers for them.  I did eat one cookie this time.

This evening there was an awards dinner for the teens at our church
held at Penn Alps in Grantsville that we went to and enjoyed very much.

Life is Good
 A happy day to you.

  1. Great pictures of the animals you meet on your daily walks. I love the birds in the cemetery. Glad your day has been good. Those kids who go to VBS at your church are sure lucky - they will get some of your delicious cookies! Have a happy Sunday!

  2. Such sweet critters...squirrels are just so cute...and Milo is a handome cat! I don't see bluebirds very often...wish I did. They are so pretty.

  3. The first Bluebird picture is fantastic. The bird and the flowers match.

  4. What great little critters! I love that squirrel!

  5. I love bluebirds. And red squirrels as well, actually. They are so boisterous! When I lived in Maine, the red squirrel was more common than the gray squirrel, but bluebirds were very rare. Here in Richmond, there are no red squirrels but lots of bluebirds.

  6. Hello, I love your critters. The squirrel is adorable. Milo looks very relaxed. I have always loved the bluebirds, great shots. Sound like a great walk and day! Thank you for linking up your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day!

  7. Even though they are listed as "pests" squirells are pretty darn cute

  8. Critters are cute! We love our critters - as long as they behave, I guess lol!

  9. Lovely critter photos Karen. I have only seen a bluebird once in my life. Lucky you to get a shot of them!
    Have a good week!

  10. The bluebirds are a very pretty colour. How beautiful.

  11. Squirrels are just about the cutest things.

  12. The bluebird photo is so pretty with the blue flowers in the planter that so perfectly match him.

  13. Oh my! You actually have blue birds, how wonderful! I love your squirrel and cat. Have a great Monday :)

  14. VBS was always so fun when I was a kid. Always looked forward to that week!!

    1. PS: feel free to ship me some cookies. ha!

  15. Your little red squirrel is adorable! And of course I LOVE the Bluebirds :)

  16. Oh, I think that squirrel looks so cute, lovely photo.

    All the best Jan
