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

Linking up with Eileen for Saturday's Critters.
My two horse friends I visit most mornings on my walk.
Two ponies just down the road.
And look what we found in our new house being built.
A Bat
Ronnie found it in the eaves and threw it outside.
Ken took the picture.
🎄     🎄
Didn't leave until 7:30 for my walk this morning.
A warm 48 degrees out and a rainy one so off I went in my rain gear.

Walked through town and then over to the industrial park.
There are only 6 businesses there and it's nice a quiet with no traffic at all
on the weekend.
Cut my walk a bit short and only walked 5.2 miles.
My feet got wet and my toes were cold.
🎄     🎄
Still can't find a gas stove we like for the new house around here
but we did find one we liked on line and will order that one.

In the afternoon I baked sugar Christmas Cookies.
It was a new recipe and I liked how the dough rolled out.
The easiest to roll out that I've come across.

It's been a rainy, dreary day all day.
Too bad all this rain isn't snow.
We are expected to have snow on Christmas day and the day after.

A happy day to you.
happyone 😊

  1. ...I don't think that I would like to live with bats.

  2. Hello, love the pretty horses. The bat was looking for a warm home. It has been raining here all day too. The sugar cookies sound yummy. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. I appreciate your visits and comments too. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
    Enjoy your day and weekend!

  3. A Bat!!! Yikes! I don't really care to have them around.Guess they are harmless, but I just don't like them much. Hope you get that snow, just in time for Christmas.

  4. Hi Happyone! I love your new header. What a great photo. I feel lucky to have found your blog and enjoy the photos you share. I want to wish you and Ken a very Merry Christmas. Hope you two have a wonderful day! Best regards from the Pacific Northwest. John

  5. Just love those horses ...

  6. Great shots of the horses. Yikes about the bat. Glad someone dealt with it. I'm heading over to check out the cookie recipe.

  7. Hi Karen! Yummy. Maybe I'll make sugar cookies in the morning. That's an amazing bat, so perfect.
    Have a lovely celebration of our Savior's birth! I'm thankful for good and sweet YOU!

  8. Merry Christmas Karen! Hope you get a little snow for the holidays.

  9. Your friends are beautiful! I once found a baby bat hanging inside of our swimming pool - it's tiny head dangling close to the water line. It took me a while .. they are pretty scary looking when agitated , but I finally got it out before it drowned.

    Merry Christmas!!!!!

  10. Those to horse friends are real beauties! Older daughter and I baked cookies yesterday, too, but just chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, and tried a new peanut butter stuffed recipe which In have not sampled...

  11. Happy Christmas! May it be a wonderful day for you & your family.

  12. Looks like the house in coming along nicely. Wow that bat was cool to see. Nice looking horses. - Wishing you & your family a very Merry Christmas. Looing forward to blogging with you in 2018. God Bless.

  13. I hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday full of good food and good cheer.
    Have a very Merry Christmas, and we wish you all the best in the New Year, too!
