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

Busy inside and out

A rainy misty start to my walk this morning and 60 degrees 
so took along my umbrella.  
After about a mile the rain stopped and after I'd walked
4 miles the sun was trying to come out.
Didn't make an appearance during my walk but did see the sun later in the morning.

Since Memorial Day is coming flags are put out on all the
Veterans graves in all three cemeteries.
Sure smelled good walking past the lilac and
azalea bushes here along the road.
Walked 6 miles
🎈     🎈     🎈
We will be putting our house up for sale the beginning of June.
This morning I rearranged some furniture around to make
the house look as big as possible.
Put my collections in closets and basically
decluttered the house.
Amazing how much bigger it makes all the rooms look.
That took care of the morning.

After lunch it was back to outside and getting more weeding done
and just to spruce up the yard a bit.

 It's been a busy day and it's nice to sit and relax.
 
Life is Good
Count your blessings

When the winds of change blow,
some people build walls
and others build windmills.

God bless.

Moving is such a big job. Selling a house is too. Here's to good health and extra energy and building windmills :)
Have a lovely weekend.

We did that in JROTC with the flags in the graves. That's a lot of work even with a pretty large crew

I love the top photo with all the mist. I'm sure the fragrance of the bushes was divine. You did well to organize your house so quickly for sale.

Hello, good luck with the sale of your home. The blooming bushes are beautiful.
Have a happy day!

That is such a big job and I will be facing it sooner than later I hope. I hope that someone comes along and snatches it right up!

I was out in the rain a little earlier today - but it's good for the gardens.
Good luck with your house sale.

All the best Jan

Your top photo is so beautiful! Decluttering is one great part of moving house. I hope yours sells for you quickly!
