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

Beautiful sunset last night though kind of hard
to see it through the trees in the picture.
Once again this morning it was 60 degrees.
A nice sunny morning once the sun came over the mountain.

Walked to town and around both of the cemeteries and back home again.

Lisa was running down the hill as I walked up it and stopped to tell
me that her husband saw a bear in the field that we were passing by.
We didn't see any though.

Every morning I walk past a small dead tree and you may think
I'm crazy but to me it looks like a giraffe.
Can you see it?
I've made a copy of the picture and outlined it in yellow
so you could see what I see.
Today we went to LaVale to do some errands and food shopping.
When we got back home after putting everything away
I sat on the porch and read my book for the book club meeting tomorrow.
Have just a little bit more to go and will finish it tonight.

Time for supper now and then we are going out to church.

Hope your day was a happy one.
Life is Good

Yes, I can see what you mean by a giraffe. Lovely colours in that sunset- it's happening all the earlier now. The sun's gone outside here.

Yes, I can see the 'giraffe' :-) It looks like a fantastic day. The colour in the sky is gorgeous.

At first I couldn't see your giraffe but then, with the outline, it became clear.

Adam said...

It kind of looks like one, I agree.

Hello, I see the giraffe. Love the sunrise. Sounds like you had a great day! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Isn’t in funny how our eye will focus on little things like this? There is a tree we pass every day with a vine hanging from it. While all the trees in that area have vines, there is one in particular I think looks like a Tarzen vine so I see it through the thick brush every walk.

Reminds me of being a kid and trying to make animals out of cloud formations :)
I see your giraffe!

Have a happy day.

Your view of the sunset is about like mine. One of the down sides of living in the woods. But we both know the up sides as well, don't we?? Yes, the yellow lines helped....LOL!

I saw it when you helped me see it. 🙂 I see that the leaves are thinning as they are here as well. I hate to see them go.

Sandi said...

It does look like a giraffe!

Beautiful sunset.
