Books I've Read In 2018

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

A Beautiful Wreath

 23 degrees this morning, no wind at all, and once the sun
came up it stayed out while I walked.
(Did cloud up later in the day)

A random walk around town this morning up and down all the streets
and around both cemeteries and the ball park.
Quite a heavy frost this morning.

Saw RuthAnn out walking her two little dogs.
She works in town and it was her I used to drop those water bills
off to when walking when we lived in town.

Nice to be walking in the sunshine.

Walked 6.2 miles

🌤    🙂    🌤

Off to the Shop and Save this morning right after breakfast.
More people there than usual, shopping for Thanksgiving.

Baked another batch of pumpkin bread this afternoon.

A few weeks ago Blogger friend Tom asked for my address because he wanted
to make a Christmas wreath for us.
It was delivered today.
It is beautiful and I LOVE it.
Thanks So Much Tom!!
We hung it up inside above the mantel because if we had hung it
up on the front door we wouldn't get to see it much.
This way inside I can see it all day long.

That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope your day was a happy one.

Be kind to everyone - you don't know what cross
they're bearing and how sweet that kind word might ring.

Nana - My town is pretty small, from each end of town from one welcome sign to the other is one mile. My routes are a maze all around town.

Deb - No, David and Liz won't be coming for Thanksgiving.  They have both just gotten over the COVID virus. Both are in very good shape and health so they had mild cases lasting 4 days.  I thank God they are healthy again.

So glad to hear the kids got over Covid...I had wondered. That wreath is beautiful.

Tom said...

...Karen, I'm glad that I arrive in good condition, enjoy your Thanksgiving.

Deb said...

Hi Karen. That is a beautiful sunrise picture, and that wreath is great! What a lovely gift from a blogging friend. Blogging friends are the best! Sorry your son won't be coming for Thanksgiving, but I am so glad to hear that he and Liz are over Covid and are doing well. Such a blessing. See you again tomorrow!

That is a pretty wreath that Tom sent. The cows don't look bothered by the frosty temps. They have a nice calming attitude. :)

William Kendall said...

A lovely wreath!

The cows seem to be taking it all in stride.

Such a lovely wreath and thoughtful gift, Karen. Your fireplace stone reminds me of my fathers stonework on my childhood home. Glad your son and girlfriend are enjoying good health. Enjoy your holiday:)

Granny Marigold said...

That's such a gorgeous wreath!! It especially looks nice against the rock of the fireplace.
I like the second photo, the one with the frosty grass. I can imagine how crisp the air must have been when you were walking.

All the best Jan
