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

A work day

๐Ÿ     ๐Ÿ
A mostly cloudy morning with just a little sun and 64 degrees.
My walk today was a random one all around town on no particular route.
I did peek in the window of the soon to be bakery like I said I would and 
didn't see any sign of the tiles anymore but all the dry wall is up now.

Saw George out walking and stopped to talk to him for a bit.
Kathy was out walking too.

I think I might have posted this gravestone before but it has been a long time.
It always makes me smile.
You will have to click on it to read it but at the bottom it says,
"Neener, neener, neener
I'm in heaven and you're not."
 Walked 6 miles

After breakfast we headed out to church at 8:30 for a work day
doing Fingerprints.  
Worked from 9:00 - 6:00 and we got nearly 5000 Romans books assembled,
stapled, cut and packed up.  
At one point there were 20 of us there working but at the end of the 
day there were just 4 of us finishing up.
A lot of work, but fun too and we always enjoy it.
What a blessing it is to be part of this ministry.

That took up the day and it is nice to be home now and
I'm about to have a bit of ice cream and watch another episode
of Call the Midwife.
Might not have time to visit you all tonight but will tomorrow.

Hope your day was a happy one.

Proverbs 21:2
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes:
but the Lord pondereth the hearts.


  1. ...I've seen a lot of gravestones, but never one like this.

  2. I am with Tom on the gravestone...I like it.

    I didn't get visiting done last night...trying to catch up tonight.

  3. Beautiful morning walk as always, thanks for sharing your journey.

  4. Your dedication to Fingerprints is exceeded only by your dedication to walking!

  5. That's a cute saying on that gravestone.

  6. Very interesting clouds and gravestone!
    Have a great weekend :)

  7. Love the tombstone! :) That was a lot of work you all did yesterday (Thursday)! It sounds as if you had a good turn out starting out! Hope you have a wonderful day today, Karen.

  8. Hello, lovely photos from your walk. I love the saying on the tombstone. Happy Friday! Wishing you a great day and weekend!

  9. Hi Karen, lovely photos from your walk. That is a very unique headstone!
    Glad you had such a great day.
    Take care.

  10. It looks like Kurt H Meyr had a grand sense of humor.
    Sounds like things are moving right along at the bakery.
    Your day at church sounds very productive.
    Have a great weekend.

  11. It's also rare to see an American gravestone with a European-style coat of arms

  12. What is Fingerprints?

    "Neener, neener, neener
    I'm in heaven and you're not."

    Love this! Trying to imagine the person who did that. :)

  13. That IS a funny headstone.
    I love Call the Midwife.

  14. I like that headstone. That might be the right attitude toward dying! I do wonder about the coat of arms on the left side. Was he British? I don't think of Americans having those. Excellent work day! Glad you had a crowd there.
