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

No boots but another glove

Posting a picture of daffodils first to remind myself that yes, it is still spring.

32 degrees this morning with a light drizzle when I fist looked out
the window and almost didn't go walking,
but a few minutes later it stopped so put on some layers of clothing
and left. Some off and on snow flurries but nothing lasted.

Walked all around town and I found a lost white glove.
Went down the main road and put it on the post up from where
I put the other glove a while back.
So now there are two gloves waving good-bye to people leaving town.


Walked around by the ball park and saw Roger walking Andy.
Never made it to the cemeteries because I ran out of miles.
As soon as I got back in the Jeep to drive home,
it started raining!
Saw three deer on the way back home.

Walked 6 miles

☁️    🌨    ☁️

Seemed like a good day for baking so baked a batch of
Chocolate Chippers.

Rain soon stopped after I got home and it has just been a
cloudy cool day.
Not a day for being outside so stayed in, did my usual 
chores, and then just puttered about.

That's about it for today.
A happy day to you and thanks for stopping by.

It has been bright and beautiful here, but so cool it is not comfortable out without an extra set of sleeves...LOL I love that shot of the daffodils, too.

The daffodils are beautiful! With 32 degree weather I'd need a reminder too. Hope it warms up soon. Have a great weekend. :)

...finding a stray glove is understandable, but I fascinated those boots doing their walking!

Your weather and mine sounds remarkably similar. Though the snow didn't stick, I did not enjoy seeing it fall all day long. Snow on forsythia is depressing somehow. I did not bake, but I did indulge in comfort foods. 🍦

Nice that the rain held off until you were done your walk!

Cold front(For us Texans) moved into. Rain predicted...not much, but some. And didn't go anywhere to walk other than around home - my car is at mechanic's.

Beautiful flowers. My all-time favorite Spring flowers.

Hi Karen- A very nice photo of the Daffodils- not many Daffodils around here though. It has been cool and overcast here to-day. Had my Eyes checked at the Optomatrist to-day mainly for Authority to Drive an Automobile- have to see the GP next week to get the remainder of the Form completed...I do this every year and it is a bit of a necessary hurdle. Stay well there. Regards. KEV.

Beautiful daffodils and the glove discovery adds another one to the post.

Hello,
The daffies are so pretty. They seem to bloom a long time.
The cookies sound yummy. It has been cold, cloudy and windy here.
Have a happy weekend!

I imagine people running around your town dropping one article of clothing and then sprinting off. What's with all the lost items? πŸ€”

We are getting some contrasts in Spring weather, too. Glad you made it to your car before the rain! Baking on a cold day is great.
