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

BBQ

This morning when I left on my walk it was 58 degrees
a little sun at first but then cloudy.
Sunrise 6:22
Sunset 8:23
Nice that some of you told me the sunrise and set times where you
live.  Interesting to hear the differences.

A nice pleasant walk to town.
On the way before getting to the main road I counted 11 deer and 2 rabbits.
The birds were kind of quiet today.

Walked around the upper cemetery a few times.
Then down towards the Drane house

to say hi to my two bull friends.
Stopped to look at the Drane house garden which looks
to be doing well.  My rhubarb originally came from this garden.
One year I helped weed it and Sherry told me I could take some.

Then headed back up to the cemetery, walked around it once more
and then home.

Didn't see anyone else out this morning.

Walked 5.7 miles
Yesterday I forgot to mention that I found a dime.

🌤     🙂     ☁️

The weather looked a bit iffy but took a chance and hung the wash out on the line.
It was just about dried by the time it started raining.
I took it in and hung it on the drying rack.
Sun came out later but didn't bother hanging the clothes back out.

Ken finished making the BBQ this morning.
I've been making weave-it squares and finished all 70.
Started sewing the squares together.

Day 5 - Light

Psalm 27:1 KJV

The Lord is my LIGHT and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
the Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?

Thanks for Stopping by.
A happy day to you.

Hi Karen. I love that barbecue. I can almost taste the delicious things you will cook there! Have a good evening. See you tomorrow!

Great Psalm quote today.

And a dime too.

God bless.

That first photo with the red home in the backdrop just makes a feeling of down-home comfort and to top it off, the beautiful golden yellow flowers makes a perfect ending. Your work (Ken's) is super!

Pretty sunrise, ours is at 6:13AM and our sunset is 8:12pm. I like the bull, they do look like they are greeting you. The garden looks beautiful and the BBQ looks great. Take care, have a happy day and weekend!

Nice barbecue, I like it. Good to see the bulls again. I either see donkeys or sheep when I walk. Have a wonderful day!

"... whom shall I fear?"

A very good perspective!

Those are big bulls.

That’s a great BBQ! We only walk on our street; never have found any money! In the early evening when we sit in the back for a bit, we have seen as many as four bunnies hopping around.

Score one for Ken for his BBQ. Can't wait to see the latest weave it blanket. Nice Drane garden. I rarely find coins. An enjoyable walk for you.
