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

I noticed some geese came back to the pond by the Drane house.

55 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds this morning when I walked.
A  beautiful cool summer morning.
Walked the Farm Loop.
A couple I've never seen before was walking there too.
I told them I'd never seen anyone else walk along here and they told
me they do every day.  I was a bit earlier than usual so we just probably
walk it at different times.

Back in town, I walked around one of the cemeteries a couple of times with Kathy.
I walked around the ball park loop and then home.

Walked 6.2 miles

It was a cloudy morning but I did a load of laundry and hung it outside
anyway.  Got the the lawn mowed this morning.  It was a bit
wet but it really needed to be mowed.
Also got a little more weeding done in the morning.
Then it was time for lunch.

We went bowling today.  It had been a few weeks so it was nice to
get back to it again and had a fun time.  There were 7 of us.
My games today were 136, 152, and 152 in that order.

This sun flower is one of the many that are in our yard.
All 4 of the blooms that you see are all on the same flower and there
are more that you can't see and some that haven't bloomed yet.
The day ended up being cloudy and the temperature never made it out
of the 60's.

A happy day to you.

  1. The photo with the geese is lovely. Wouldn't that be great to have next to a house?!

  2. ,,,a chilly, rainy day here, but those sunflowers are making my evening sunny!

  3. It was such a beautiful day today...even though the sun didn't shine here until around 5:00 this evening! But it was so nice to not have that humidity! No air conditioning needed, just opened up the windows and let the fresh air come in! Loved it! I thought of you this morning with the cooler temps and how good it would feel to you on your walk. :) xx

  4. That pond looks divine. And I enjoy your walks perhaps as much as you do :)
    Thanks for sharing and lovely photos!

  5. Oh, I so love those sunflowers...and I love that first view of the pond and geese.

  6. We've had so much rain I had to delay mowing the lawn. When I finally did, much of it had to be raked!

  7. Really love seeing the roads you walk and your sunflowers brought a big sunny smile to my day!

  8. Your post has brightened my day with the happy sunflowers and sunshine. Plenty of rain here today.
    Have a fantastic Wednesday :)

  9. That is a beautiful sunflower.
    Your temperatures sound delightful to me. We are going to get a slight break today with highs in the 80s. I plan to spend some time doing much needed weeding.

  10. Sunflowers are such a happy flower!

  11. Oh, I agree...what a serene picture that is of the geese on the pond...and I just love me some sunflowers!

  12. Beautiful sunflowers! The geese on the pond make a very picturesque scene! Hae a great day.

  13. The sunflower is exceptionally lovely.

  14. Whoa...lucky you to have such low temperatures. We're being promised our highs will drop to the low 90's, maybe.
