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

The first cone flower

๐Ÿšฃ     ๐Ÿšฃ
Walked the Farm Loop this morning.
Happy to say those three dogs were nowhere to be seen so I 
walked the whole loop.
The temperature was 63 and the skies were cloudy and not much of a breeze.
 Just two cars passed me on the loop.
All the chickens were out in the front yard by the dairy farm and the
rooster was crowing a good morning for all to hear.

Back in town, I walked a loop around one cemetery and through
town and then headed home.
Walked 6.3 miles

The daisies from yesterday were NOT the ones on my yard as I think
some of you thought.  They were just wild ones along the road.
The daisies in my yard have buds but have not bloomed yet.
 Here's what they look like now.

Went to the library and got next months book club selection which is
News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

We had a couple of rain showers but the sun came out in the afternoon
and I went outside and did some weeding.
The lawn needs mowing again but it is too soggy so will have to do
that tomorrow.
The first cone flower has bloomed in the front garden by the dining room windows.
A friend gave me a plant of Lambs Ear two years ago and now I have lots of
it in a few gardens around the yard.
A friend stopped over the house to see Ken's trains and I stayed outside on
the porch reading.  I heard a sound and realized it was rain approaching
and boy did it come down hard.  I stayed outside on the porch
till I starting getting wet.
They are still downstairs with the trains so I figured I get a blog entry posted.

I'm planning on making some nice big salads for supper.
 Wish they'd get done with the trains cause I'm sure getting hungry. 

A happy day to you.

"Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy."
~ John Denver


  1. We've had mixed weather & some heavy downpours this week. The shot with the canoe is great & you do a super job in your garden! Love the lambs ear!

  2. I like coneflowers!
    Your grass looks good! I have tried PREEN this year, too. I am trying so hard to keep the weeds under control. Do you have a Hula hoe? They are wonderful!

  3. Lovely photos. Hope those salads were filling.

  4. Nice canoe by the pond! And nice bright pink Lamb's Ears too.

  5. The Coneflower is such a beautiful and long lasting flower. I also never knew that Lamb's Ear bloomed like that.Have a great weekend.

  6. ...lambs ear can take over in no time.

  7. I love the picture of the pond and red boat. Your pictures are always good. I didn't know about the dogs, but glad you didn't see them again. I did not know that lambs ear would bloom.

  8. Oh, my. You cannot imagine how many times I have listened to and thought 'Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy'....and in the fall season, it is all the poems, prayers and promises....

  9. Your view from your porch is lovely and your lawn and flowers look amazing. It won't be long before you have daisies and cone flowers blooming everywhere . . . so pretty. Have a wonderful weekend.
    Connie :)

  10. Hello, we only had a few drops of rain. I think we could use some more here. Your flowers are pretty. I like the red canoe by the pond. Happy weekend to you!

  11. How pleasant to be able to sit on the porch during the rain! I hope you were able to eat soon. Such pretty garden blooms. Looking forward to seeing your daisies in bloom soon.

  12. The first picture reminds me of Sweden. It is just gorgeous.

  13. Love your first photograph of the canoe, and what a great reflection too.
    Cone flowers and lambs ears are colourful.

    Hope you enjoyed your salad.

    All the best Jan

  14. Love the coneflower! I meant to comment on the corn in your other post - I was in a corn field the other day and the corn was over my head. I am just short of six feet.
