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 chilly start

30 degrees this morning with a light frost in some places.
A calm morning and at the beginning of my walk bright sunshine.
After a couple of miles the clouds took over and the rest of my
walk was cloudy.
Sun came out again later in the day and it warmed things up
into the 50's.

Another walk all over town, the cemeteries and the ball park

Saw a tiny little rabbit run under a bush at the cemetery.
Maybe running back to mama - he sure was little.

Didn't see anyone else out walking.
A quiet walk around town - all is well in my little town. 🙂

Walked 6.2 miles

☀️    ☁️    🚶‍♀️    🌸

Work is still going on up at the cabin on the shower room.
Walked up to see how things were going and helped a bit.

Ken stayed and I walked back home.
Walking down the driveway from the cabin.

When I got to the lane looked up at the deep blue sky
with white puffy clouds .

Across from the house driveway some of our neighbor cows
rest in the sun.

Later I'm going to make some baked apples with the air fryer.
Waiting to make them just before snack time this evening so
we can eat them warm.
I think a scoop of ice cream would go well on top too.
Will let you know tomorrow how they turned out.

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

Walking down that tree lined path looks to be so enjoyable. I’m waiting to hear how the apples turn out.

I love that last picture. the one of the cows. I guess I was meant to be a farmer. Too late now.

I always love the pictures with the cows and this one was no exception. Loved the cow dead center of the photo.

Oh yes! I know the scoop of ice cream on the baked apples warm from the air fryer was just the thing. You are so nicely secluded there in your forest. Lovely neighbors, too.
