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

Farm Loop

It was a great walk this morning!!
40 degrees, calm and sunny.

Drove to town and parked in my usual place at the town pond.
Took my walking stick along with me today and instead of walking
around town, walked through town and around the Farm Loop.

 Stopped to say hi to these fellows at Farmer Bill's farm.

Then continued on my way.

A lot of times when I pass by the Dairy Farm there are no cows
out in the front pasture but got lucky today and some were out there.

A couple of little ones.

This picture cracked me up!!
I think they wanted to see what my phone was when I held it up to take the picture and they really stretched for it.

Didn't see any people and no cars either walking past the farms.
Just me and the animals.

 A baby Robin is learning to fly.  Taking a rest here in the road.
I helped it over to the side of the road.

When I got back to the car I had walked 4.7 miles.
Then walked up to the cemetery on the hill, and went down to say hi
to the bulls, around the cemetery again and then back to the car.
Walked 6 miles

☀️    πŸ„    πŸ¦™    🚜

    Made Snickerdoodle Bread this morning.
The recipe makes two loaves so I'm going to give one to David and Liz.

Ken worked on the stone wall again today and now it looks as good as new.
Maybe even better! 

I went outside in the afternoon again to pick up more dead fall
to add to the fence.  That is a job that will never be done,
but I like doing it.  Keeps me outside and I get a lot of exercising
bending up and down. 

Back inside for some knitting before supper time.

A happy Saturday to you.
Thanks for stopping by.

It looks so picture perfect out where you walked today, so beautiful! The cows trying to check out your phone are so funny, they cracked me up. That baby robin has a very angry look on his little face. He cracked me up too! The Snickerdoodle bread sounds delicious. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. :)

...I love the countryside in your area. The first image is wonderful. Take care Karen.

What a grumpy looking little Robin. I hope it learned to fly before something caught it.

The weather looks beautiful . Cows are so curious. I have noticed that over time, but the heard of Bison that lives near here, won't even look at you when you try to get their attention.

That robin is so cute. I like the cows stretching, too. And love that barn in the photo above them.

That first photo is excellent. Like a painting.

God bless.

I love all the cute critters, the cow closeup is funny.
Looks like a great morning for a walk. Your bread sounds yummy.
Have a great day and a happy new week!

Hi Karen - sounds like you had a really nice walk. I loved the pictures of the horses and the cows trying to figure out what you were doing. Hope your Sunday is a good one. See you again soon!

Inger said...

It sound like you had a lovely day, which just proves that the quote about beginning your day with a walk is so true.

Fun photos from your walk on Saturday. Too funny about the cows stretching toward you. Love seeing the little calves. We had a busy outdoor day on Saturday with temps reaching the 80's!

The farm walk is my favorite. Cattle are smarter than one might first think.
