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

Frosty Walk

 A frosty morning walk.
31 degrees with a slight breeze.
Was nice when the sun made its appearance in town.

Another drive to town and saw 4 deer along the way.

No one about on this early Saturday morning as I walked all over town.
Went over to the industrial park and walked around there too.

A few pictures along the way.

Walked 6.2 miles

☀️     🙂     🍁 🍂

A beautiful sunny day all day though a bit cool.
A perfect fall day.

In the morning I got some more wash hung out on the line.
I can't believe how much laundry accumulates for just two people.

Late morning I joined Ken up at the tractor barn.
He got more clearing out done and we have another truck load
of metal to take to the recycling place.
I had two fire barrels going burning up LOTS of scrap wood.
Some of it from an old deck we had at the house in town.
We saved the wood and have been using bits of it over the years
but nothing good left to use anymore.
Took a lunch break and went back to work till 3:00.

We had Spinach Bean Soup for supper which I made this morning.
(no recipe for it on my recipe blog)
Now I'm looking forward to my ice cream snack later this evening!!

Thanks for stopping by.
A happy Saturday to you.

Rose - I color with both crayons and pencils.  I've been using the pencils lately though.

I love those trees in your shots...just so beautiful. Got to go look at your soup recipe...it sounds interesting to me...

Rose said...

I honestly could not tell which you used to color with...I had looked at the pic yesterday and some you posted another day.

Hootin' Anni said...

That soup sounds very nutritious. My dad used to say there'll be frost on the pumpkins tonight
Funny, how when someone mentions a word (like frost), a memory comes thru.

Have a glorious evening & enjoy that dessert.

Tom said...

...our morning looked like this, it was the first frost for us. Your colors still look beautiful.

Vee said...

The frost looks so pretty... I need to get my petunia in for the night.

Beautiful color in the oranges and burning bushes. A fire 🔥 on a chilly day is very pleasant.

The frost and the fall colors make for some amazing scenes.

We had our first snow fall this morning; only a trace to an inch but enough for now. I wanted to say I really like the little saying you posted at the end of your blog. Sweet.

Hill Top Post said...

Your frosty morning pictures are just gorgeous! I love the tingling feeling I get on my cheeks when I walk on cold days. I also like the saying you posted.

Susie said...

Great pictures. You sure can see the heavy frost. Oh I too often wonder how two people can make so much laundry . It's not like we are going anywhere these days. LOL I have a ton of yard scraps to burn...but we have "No burn warnings" around here because it's so dry. Ted says I can burn all winter...well like I want to do that. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Nellie said...

Lovely color on your walk! We had frost this morning, though not heavy at all, nor was it widespread. I love the bite to the air when it’s cold like this.

Debi said...

I absolutely love the photo of the red tree and the frost. So pretty! It seems to be the season for soup... we made it twice last week.

Connie said...

Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr . . . Great weather for hot soup :). As always I enjoyed my visit. Have a sweet Sunday.

Love the pretty captures of the fall colors, the frost and fog over the pond. It is good weather for soup. Happy Sunday, have a great new week ahead.

Looks a very crisp Frost there Karen. We've had rain today and a cold evening - Spring weather? I'm looking forward to Summer and the warmth at night. Regards. KEV.

You can really see the frost. Thankfully not yet in the UK.

God bless.

Hi Happyone
When enjoying a visit to Life Is Good your photography fascinates me. I find myself saying over and over, I would have taken that shot. You sure have a great eye for what makes a great photo. In this post, that last photo with the pond, trees, and shadows is photo calendar quality! Thanks for sharing your blog and photography and thanks for the kind comments you leave on my blog.

Aritha said...

I really love those photos. they are so nice (the trees).

Inger said...

Great pictures and now I have to find your recipe blog. I got a bag of frozen spinach by mistake from my Walmart shop online and pick up service. Maybe I could make a soup.

Henny Penny said...

Oh, it does look frosty there. We haven't had the first frost yet, but cool enough today to build a fire in the fireplace. Spinach Bean soup sounds really good. Healthy too.

bill burke said...

I love the mist coming off the fountain. Nice shots of the frost.

Tina said...

What a beautiful walk you always have. The soup sounds delicious. It’s in the 80’s here in South Georgia. Blah!

Granny Marigold said...

The pictures today are especially lovely!!
