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

Out to Uniontown

This morning it was only 10 degrees and still windy so I
was back to walking in the basement.
At least I had some good outside walking days.
This picture is from yesterdays walk and is
just about a half mile from my house.
No painting today.
 It was a pretty day, sun shining and a bright blue sky.
We drove out to Uniontown mid morning and spent the day there.
I hadn't bought enough yarn for the bedspread I'm making
so picked up the rest of the yarn for that.

Mostly we just walked around looking in the stores,
but it was nice.
I got this sunflower and put it in a bottle that I had
to brighten up the half bath.
 We had lunch while we were out too.
It was a nice pleasant day.
Pleasant - adj.  Giving a sense of happy satisfactions or enjoyment.

Hope your day was a happy one too.

We had sunshine so I was a pretty happy camper;-) But it was too cold to enjoy being outside. I did sew a little...

It does look like a nice day.

Such a pretty place in the top photo. I have an elderly aunt who lives in Indiana and she has been trying to get her walks, but this last cold spell is too much for her as well. Such a cheery sunflower! Stay warm!

Very pretty picture...thanks for sharing.
Happy that you were able to get out of the house for a while and I love your sunflower.. very cheerful!

Warm wishes.

...10F is COLD. No painting makes for a good day.

Dianna said...

Sounds like a lovely day. I like the sunflower you bought...it goes perfectly in that bottle!

You have some of the best scenery right by your house.

Sandi said...

It's late here, I read that as Unicorntown at first and was incredibly envious!

Chip Butter said...

Your surrounding countryside looks very similar to ours. This little stream could well be the one here just east of our house. Sometimes it's good to just get out and about; kind of like hitting the refresh button.

Hello, looks and sounds like a great day. I walked on my treadmill, it is too cold out there. Your sunflower is pretty. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week.

Sue said...

Hello, Dear Friend, so nice to visit again, we have been having beautiful warm temperatures here, 80, on Friday, it's been getting colder each day since. I really like the sunflower in the jar, such a nice adea!. I am certainly beginning to think spring, and have begun adding a few touches too! Sun flowers always make me smile. I know you are so enjoying your new home.

Lisa said...

That sunflower hits the spot. Beautiful.

When I see very small trickles of water like that small creek, I like to think of it as the beginning of water going to the Chesapeake Bay. You are now pretty far from the Bay, but who knows.

William Kendall said...

That creek is quite a welcome sight to see.

Love that sun flower!

I like the sunflower. Mine didn't grow this year.

God bless.

You're probably out on your walk right now! I hope to go later after I do my volunteer work. Enjoy your day!

I like the sunflower in the bathroom. A pretty contrast to the white. Good plan to walk in the basement when it is so cold. Lately, I just walk a track around my apartment. It gets the heart rate up but the scenery is rather boring! :)

Sounds like a real enjoyable outing. Love the sunflower in the powder room!
