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

Little Ones

 38 degrees this morning when I started out walking.
Another sunny walk for which I am thankful. ๐Ÿ™‚

Driving to town and just down from the house I saw a deer
and a tiny little fawn on the side of the road.
I stopped the car and mama went in the woods.
The fawn must have just been born not very long ago because
it could barely get up.
I got the window down and took a picture just in time before
the fawn got up and followed mama.

Once I got to town, had my usual walk all around town,
the cemeteries and the ball park.
Again didn't see anyone else out walking.

Down at the town pond I stopped to watch a new family of geese.
The three little ones had quite a struggle getting up the little hill.

One made it up first and is over by mama.

All three now up there by mama and papa.

Pictures not that great but the best I could do with a phone.

Walked 6 miles

Beautiful blue skies with white puffy clouds again today.

Ken was outside working out back repairing one of the stone walls
he made.  After the winter with freezing and thawing some of the
stones came down.

While he did that, I got a bit of weeding done and
some of the deadfall out back picked up and added to the fence.

Got a little knitting done just before supper which was
Baked Ziti but the ziti were mini wheels.
What I've been doing is when we have pasts and sauce for
supper, I make a whole box and save half.
Then a couple days later I just add sauce and cheeses and bake
in the oven for another meal.
Quick and easy.

That's all I have for today.
Hope your Friday was a good one.
Thanks for stopping by.
๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป‍๐Ÿฆณ happyone ❤️

Your photos are lovely. The little fawn is precious! I'm also a fan of quick and easy meals.

Tom said...

...that fawn is a cutie!

ellen b. said...

Ahh...that fawn is so cute and so new. I love meals that can stretch like that. Glad you had a good productive day!

Rose said...

I would have been so thrilled to see that fawn! They are just so cute.

There are somethings I especially like to cook extra and just have to warm up later. Some things are better the second time around. I have been known to fry up hamburger and save some to do something else with, like you do with the pasta.

Debi said...

Love all the wildlife you get to see on your walks!

Ruth Hiebert said...

That is so special to see a newborn fawn.

Granny Marigold said...

It looks so summery in your pictures. Hard to believe it gets so chilly at night. What a sweet little fawn. You were quick enough to get that photo!!

Hootin' Anni said...

That's exactly what I do with pasta dishes.

That little fawn is precious. As are the goslings. Nature on our morning walks never ceases to give comfort & joy!!!

You are so lucky to have such a beautiful place to walk.

This time of year I always worry about the little baby animals that can barely walk and that can't fly yet. They are so vulnerable!
