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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

A ride home

A foggy start to my walk this morning.

62 degrees and no breeze at all.

Walked to town and went around the lower cemetery.
A corn field is on two sides of the cemetery.
Walked into the field and took the picture.
Corn is looking good with all the sun and rain.
It comes up to my knees.

Continued my walk through town and over to the ball park and
walked that loop.
Lena was walking there too and it was nice to have a chat with her.

From there I walked through to the other side of town
to the small industrial park and walked around there.
Look at how nice and flat this road is, easy walking!!

It is behind the Dollar General.
Didn't have to walk back home because I met Ken at the
Dollar General.  We did id a little shopping there before going back home.

Walked 5.7 miles
Found a dime
(Victor - 10 pennies)

For some reason that Plant Snap App hasn't been working so great
for me lately.  It gave me a few different names for this.
Pretty sure it is Garden Snapdragon.
Quite a lot of them along the side of the roads.

🌤     😀     🌤

Too nice to say indoors this morning so while I should have been
inside starting this weeks house cleaning
I went outside.

After so much wind there was quite a lot of dead fall about
so added more to my natural fences.
In some places the fence is as high as my waist.

Since we can't do our deck till next month
Ken screwed some boards down on the joists so I can hang 
my laundry out on the deck.
He had put a few boards out already but they weren't
screwed down.  It is safer now.

Just one more weave-it square to make for July's
baby blanket.  Will make it later and then get started
on sewing it together.

Supper tonight was
meat loaf
baked potatoes
and peas.

Thanks for stopping by.
Life is Good
Find the good in your day.
happyone ❤️

...that corn looks great, our recent rain relieved the corn here. If I were you I'd try to get your money back from that app. I think that you have Linaria vulgaris, known as Yellow Toadflax, Butter and Eggs or Wild Snapdragon.

Rose said...

Love your pics again...corn is a bit higher here, of course since we are farther along in the season than you. But some of it is not 'even'...I always assume that has to do with all the rain at certain points and maybe it being where a puddle of water stood...but not sure if that is it. There has been a lot of that the past couple of years.

When I was using the snap app for that one flower, it gave me several things before it hit on one that matched when I looked it up on the computer. And have had mixed results since.

I love that flower, snapdragon. I feel like I should know what a snapdragon is, but I cannot think right now.

Michelle said...

That does look like a snapdragon. I have grown them before and loved them as a kid. Your walk sounds great. 90 degrees here today with high humidity. Yuk!!

That corn really is growing well.

All the best Jan

When I read your lead in title...a ride home...I thought oh my gosh you hurt yourself. So glad you met up with your man and got a ride home. LOL. You know we can do housework when it rains and stuff like that. Right? Take care. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
p.s. I love meatloaf.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Sounds like your weather is pleasant. Around here a person doesn’t want to be outside more than necessary. It is incredibly hot. Mid 30celcius.

Gretchen Joanna said...

It also looks like the yellow toadflax I have in my garden.

It's been ages since I made a meatloaf. I'll need to put that on my list. Love that flat looking road. Glad you could get some work done outside and that's a good idea to make the temporary boards on your deck secure.

Hi Karen- Good to see the early morning misty conditions - I just love Fog and Low Cloud...mother nature at it's best. Cheers. KEV.

I really was beginning to despair. You have not found any money for such a long time, and now a dime. Well done.

God bless.

Dramatically but after the storm there will be a smile and sunshine.

Deb said...

I love the idea of meatloaf for dinner. Comfort food sounds good. Thanks for the idea. I have also got some wrong plant identifications from the Plantsnap app. Great picture. See you again soon.

We could use some rain here, it seems to go around us. The corn fields are starting to grow here but now very tall. The meatloaf dinner sounds delicious. The wild snapdragon flowers are pretty. Take care, Enjoy your day!

I like that fog.

bill burke said...

Nothing beats fresh corn on the cob. Nice foggy photo, I like it!
Enjoy your day.
