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

Friday


Another cloudy morning as I walked to town.  66 degrees and windy.  

A couple of deer come out of the corn field and stopped to watch me as I walked by.


Once I got to town, walked around town and over to the ball park.  Walked around that loop a couple of times and then over to the cemeteries and walked around them a couple of times too.  Continued down past the Drane house to the barn where the bulls are to see how they were doing, but no bulls today.

 From there went to the pond where Ken was waiting and I got a ride home.  

Didn't see anyone else out in town.

Walked 5.7 miles

Ken drove the tractor up to the cabin to get some work done up there.  I stayed home to get some house chores done and then walked up to the cabin late morning. Walked up the lane.  The woods on the right is part of Happy Trails.

 
And then went up the driveway on the right which goes to the cabin.
 
  Helped gather some stones and then we were ready to get a load of crush and run gravel from the quarry. We're not done at the quarry after all like I thought.  Anyway we walked back to the house and hooked up the trailer to the truck.  Were all set to go for the gravel when a thunderstorm came through so we decided not to go after all. 

The rest of the afternoon was rain, more thunder storms and there was even a time or two when the sun came out.

I ended up making some weave-it squares and just puttering about the house the rest of the day.

Vee - No high winds or heavy rain passing through that I know about.  Just the usual summer afternoon thunder storms.

SusanQ - I've heard of Leola and it is 210 miles from here.

I love the picture of the cabin. The fork in the road picture reminds me of the poem "The Road Not Taken." That poem is one of my favorites. See you again tomorrow!

It's fun to see the all these photos today especially your drive and the pull off to the cabin. Nice. That is a great verse you picked. Thanks so much for participating!

When the deer see you walking they probably say to one another " She's okay. Quite harmless. So we don't have to run away."

...and here I thought that we had a lot of deer, you are the winner!

Glad you got out to walk before the rains. You do the little squares so easily it seems. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I always enjoy seeing the Drane house. And I love that view on your way to the cabin. I would enjoy that walk.

I know those deer love the corn fields! We hiked this morning and it wasn't too bad...close to 80 degrees though! I wish I could try on some of the shoes you wear to walk in. One of these days I'll hopefully get to a store that carries them. Enjoy your weekend!

I love those winding roads through the trees. A good thundershower is just what we need over here.it is very dry.

Hi Karen- Thunderstorms and rain? You would be nearing Autumn there? We're still in the grip of Winter and we are certainly looking forward to Spring. At present I'm trying to raise some funds by selling things on e-Bay...I'll need a good amount of funds to do my HO scale model Railroad...I guess Ken knows all about it too. Best Wishes. KEV.

Hello,

Love the deer near the corn field, great shot. We had some thunderstorms roll through yesterday, we really needed the rain. Enjoy your day, happy weekend!

Bill said...

Great shot of the deer, they look inquisitive.

I love the deer standing near the cornfield, watching you. I still think the area where you live is simply beautiful. Oh the hills and the woods. It's so pretty there. Love that verse.
