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

Rainy Day

 57 degrees this morning, cloudy and windy and a little
mist in the air once in a while.
Another drive to town and a walk over to the industrial park.
Continued walking all around town,
the ball park loop and the lower cemetery.

Saw Lena and Jim walking and a dog walker.

Nothing happening around town this morning,
but still nice to be out walking.

Walked 6 miles

Sorry no walking pictures today.

☁️     🙂     🌧

A picture from yesterday up the lane.

Not back home from walking very long when it started raining and has
been raining all day.  It's been a while since we had a rainy day.

We headed on over to the Shop and Save for our usual food shopping day.

I've been knitting a scarf for Liz (sons girlfriend) and today I finished it.
It is purple and after I started it found out that purple is
Liz's favorite color.
It looks more pink in the picture than it actually is.

Did quite a lot of reading this afternoon too.
A rainy day seems like a good day for that.

That's going to be it for today.
A happy Tuesday to all.
Thanks for stopping by.
happyone ❤️

Ruth - Ken's got the plumbing for the outhouse figured out but I don't know the details.

Lisa - The bird house that you spotted actually is made to look like the cabin.

...we had much needed rain today and I loved it. I cleaned up some leaves in between the rain.

We got some light drizzle yesterday but not enough to amount to anything. I love that tree from yesterday.

Rain here this morning and it will rain tomorrow...the lawns sure could use some water...we have lots of brown patches. That is one gorgeous red tree!

I confess that I love a rainy day. We finally had one yesterday. It had been a while for us, too.

I can only say wow about the picture up the lane! I do love a rainy day, and feel like I need one every so often to give myself a rest both mentally and physically.
