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

Sunny Day

This little chorus popped into my head this morning like it does quite often. 

🎵 Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin' my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay! 🎵

It was a beautiful sunny walk this morning around town.
28 degrees and no wind.

Walked all around town and both cemeteries and the ball park.

The sidewalks in town are covered in grit and gravel from the spreading
of it on the roads for ice and snow.
Sometime in spring after the last snow fall it all gets cleaned up.

No one else out walking which was surprising on such a pretty morning.

Anni - Saw this and right away thought of you.
This picture is for you.

Walked my usual 6 miles

☀️    🙂    ☀️

Temperature rose to 43 degrees so I hung the laundry outside on the line
and did a few other house chores.

Spent quite a bit of time writing a post for another blog I started a few weeks ago.  It is mainly for myself to keep track of all the things I knit or make.
Today I posted a picture and patterns of the little sachets I knitted.
If you are interested you can see it

Thanks for stopping by.
A happy day to you.
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️

HillTop: Can't say that breathing cold air bothers me but I do have a ski mask which I wear under my hoody.  Don't put it over my nose and mouth though - just wear it up over my chin if it's cold, otherwise I just put it under my chin.

That first picture is a great one. It looks like your snow is all gone. There's nothing like a sunny day to lift one's spirits.

Tom said...'s amazing, it appears that you went from winter to spring like weather is days. Enjoy it!

Rose said...

That song and a couple others pop into my head fairly often....well, hard to explain. When we are having a beautiful day, and used to at work in the fall when picking apples...I was always singing We're off to see the Wizard, the wonder wizard of oz....and my mind just went blank as to the other. YOu would think I knew myself well enough till that didn't happen. OH!

Oh, Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day in the Neighborhood......

Was in the 60's here today...

Deb said...

Sunny here too and today we were up to 62 degrees! It's always nice to walk in the sun. I visited your other blog and those sachet bags are darling. See you again tomorrow!

Debi said...

Beautiful walk today. I can't wait to hang my clothes outside to dry!

Vee said...

When things turn around in your corner, things change quickly...hardly any snow! I am happy for your return to in town morning walks.

The knot in that tree is quite a sight to see.

"Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay..."

Sung by 'Uncle Remus'!!!!!

Oh mercy, can we sing that anymore????????

Or is that one of the 'things', which 'offend', and everyone has to be "Woke" about???????!!!!!!??????

I think someone carved a 'heart' shape in that tree, and the tree, did its "fix a hurt." Maybe???

Wondering about the cover your face question.... Didn't read it so... But it brings to mind, the fact of seeing many people, walking by our house... It's a street, which borders walking paths, so many people are up here, for that.

Anyway, many are wearing masks! Which I would never do. Being out doors. Being perfectly able to keep away from other walkers. Being as I want the fresh air.

Unless, the day's air, is hurtful to the walker.

But to me, all this wearing masks *everywhere,* is mainly 'Virtue Signaling.'

From my research, we were masks inside. And the only 'inside' we do, is early morning grocery store quick stops, and doc appointments. Otherwise... Outside... No masks here...

Wow, I DO find a lot to chat about, in your blog, and your blog comments, don't I????????????????????? -grin-

The heart on the tree is a nice sight. Great find!
I have the song in my head now. :)

Pom Pom said...

Yay for sunshine! I love your little sachets!

Tina said...

My father-n-love can sing that song more joyful than Uncle Remus! I have loved hearing him sing it. I bought the movie, “Song of the South” about 10 years ago and I’m so glad I did. It’s such a sweet movie. I’m so glad to see that you can walk in town again. Spring has sprung here, lol..and my allergies are in full swing. But who cares..because MY OH MY WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY!!
