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

Picked out the tree

 Another cloudy morning and no wind when I started walking.
39 degrees
Sunrise 7:16

Walked all over town and then around the industrial park.

Then headed over to the ball park and walked around there.

Today I didn't see anyone at all out.
Heard quite a few gun shots - hunters.
Also heard the unmistakable cry of some coyotes.

Nearing the end of my walk some blue sky started to appear.

Sure was a quiet morning!!

Walked 6 miles

☁️    🙂    ⛅️

The sun came out and there was a bit of a breeze, 
 a perfect day to hang the wash out to dry.

After lunch Ken and I walked around out back for a while.
We went to see if we could find a Christmas tree to cut down.
We found a cute little Charley Brown tree.
Will go back next week to get it.
Sun kind of washed the picture out but this is the tree.

Nice being outside walking around in the crisp sunny air.
When we went back inside had a nice hot cup of tea.

The rest of the afternoon I puzzled and read.

Happy Saturday to you.
Thanks for stopping by.

If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
if you are depressed, it will cheer you;
if you are excited it will calm you.

I am still amazed at how much you walk!!! Do you ever get bored? I walk my two miles and pray and talk to myself...but after all that if I'm not back home I get bored! I used to walk with a neighbor but she got on my nerves so badly with her negative attitude I pulled away from her. I got tired of starting my day off with a complainer!!!!

It's hunting season here too, so I wear a blaze orange vest every day. That's a gorgeous little tree. I haven't decided on one yet.

I don't know where to your Christmas tree. When I was a kid, my brother and I always went and hunted our tree. We had a lot of territory to look on. We used cedar...they grew up in pastures and land not one cared if we cut them down.

I love the cup you are using for your is one I would want to buy but I would restrain myself. I have more than I use now. I really like that second pic...looks like a lot to see down the way!
