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

 Here's a LINK with a bit more information about the Tiny Church and Post Office
for those of you asked questions about them.
My walk was the usual one again all over and around town.
The temperature was 35 degrees and cloudy.
A damp morning but nothing falling from the sky which was nice.

I saw Cathy but didn't walk with her.  I got a bit of a late start and
she was leaving town in her car as I was heading over to the cemeteries.
Took this picture leaving the cemetery up on the hill.
I saw a couple of blue jays.  Their pretty blue coloring nice to see on
a cloudy morning.  
Some geese flew overhead low enough for me to hear the
flapping of their wings.

Walked 6.2 miles
I'm home today getting some house chores completed.

Read a bit this afternoon too.

Ken is working on sorting through all the stuff in his office.

Not much to write about today but a good day just the same.

Make your day a good one.
A smile from me to you.

I am thankful for the comforts in my house that are
easily taken for granted.
Running water
Indoor plumbing
Electricity - light at the flick of a switch
Being able to turn up the thermostat when I'm chilly
A nice warm bed to sleep in

DebbieJ - The new house is actually smaller then the one we live in now.  Going from 4 bedrooms to 2, from 3 baths to 1 and a half bathrooms.   
New house has a good size country kitchen, living room, and two bedrooms.
New house looks big because of the BIG porch and the 3 car garage.


  1. The church is so pretty and the post office too. Thanks for the link, I can see it would be a great place for a wedding or baptism.

  2. There's no place like home sweet home with its comforts & peace.

  3. Many thanks for the link.
    That is a very nice first picture, a lovely peaceful scene.

    All the best Jan

  4. I love learning more about your new house. Glad you had a good day! Hugs!

  5. I'm thankful for all those conveniences we enjoy every day, too!

  6. Oh, we are sort of on the same wave length today...we were burning some wood and sticks,etc. we were sitting there for a minute and I told Roger I don't know how our ancestors made it. I told him to imagine that being all we had to heat with in the dead of winter.

    Most of my brothers and sisters remembers living without electricity...I think we always had electricity from when I was a baby, but not much farther back than that. (I am 62) I don't know if you ever noticed at the side of my Pics & Pieces blog, there is a link to my About Me post...it explains a bit about how I grew up.

  7. Thanks for the link!

    Very cool.

  8. Hello, there is always some to do around the home. I love your first photo, neat view of the cattle. Have a great day!

  9. I love the feathers and color of the blue jays. We rarely see them around here.
    I agree with your thankful thoughts of home. It is so true that they are easy to take for granted.

  10. been awhile since I've seen a blue jay

  11. I can often feel I’ve had a good day doing chores around the house, it gives me a sense of contentment xx

  12. I saw a gorgeous blue jay today at lunchtime. I always hear them out in the trees but don't often see them...they are especially pretty in the snow :)

  13. I'm enjoying those low-flying geese these days too, a sure sign of early winter.

  14. I did not see the link till last night...the one about the small church and post office...don't ask me how I missed it because I don't know. I just wanted you to know I appreciated you taking the time to give it.
