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

Fog again

Started out walking in the fog again this morning but it
was soon gone and there was a mix of sun and clouds.
Temperature was 64 degrees and no wind.

Walked to town and met Jackie, a friend from church in the parking
lot by the pond.  She gave me money wrapped up in tin foil for the
money cupcakes that I bake each year for the Sunday school kids.
Most of you probably already know what that is but will explain
it again when I make the cupcakes in a couple of days.

Nice to have a chat with Jackie, then she left and I continued
on my walk.

Went to the post office to drop a card down the slot,
walked around town and finally headed back home again.

Didn't see anyone else out walking.
Only a couple of deer around this morning and didn't see any rabbits.

Walked 5.7 miles

☁️     🙂     🌤

When I got home Ken was already outside working on the bridge.
After breakfast he went back outside and I did some stuff inside.
Went out later in the morning and finished pulling the weeds
from around the area by the bridge.

A friendly neighborhood cow having a scratch.

Anni - Yes, that was my walking stick in the shadow picture yesterday.  My son David made it for me years ago.

Oh, I so love that first shot.

Sounds like nice weather for a walk.

Vee said...

I'm kind of envious of your 60s weather. We have no relief overnight...makes it interesting trying to keep the house cooled off. That cow is funny...glad she figured out how to get a welcome scratch.

Deb said...

Sounds like another good day - it is starting to cool down a bit here to in the morning, which makes morning walks nice. Today was my last week day morning walk for a while because tomorrow it's back to school. Have a good one and I will see you again soon.

I noticed your walking stick too and was happy to see you carry it. We need a little something when we hike and you see dogs sometimes. Enjoy your day! Hot and sticky here today. I have indoor projects to work on!
