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 little foggy when I first started walking but then just cloudy.
It was 64 degrees with just a little breeze.
Sunrise 6:12

The usual walk around town, cemeteries and ball park.


Yesterday the little horses were out of the pasture and 6 bulls
were there instead.  This morning nothing in the pasture.
Didn't see Farmer Marvin to ask about the horses.

Roger was walking around the ball park.
He told me he walks his dog Andy before going off to work.
That's why I haven't seen him for a while, I've been getting
to the ball park a bit later than usual.

Lisa was out running and saw another man walking a dog.

Met someone who lives on the main road in town.
Him and his wife bought the house a few months ago and have
been really working hard making it look nice.
He was out front and I told him how nice things were looking.
He has a name that is easy to remember - Kermit. 

Another Door around town
A basement door - you might have to duck - siding down over the door.

Walked 6 miles

☁️    🚢‍♀️    ⛅️

Walking I got a hankering for fried bread so made that for breakfast.

Started my house cleaning for the week.
When I got tired doing that
I read and knitted.
Sat out on the front porch.
Cloudy all day till very late afternoon and then the sun came out.

Thought of my mom a lot today because it is her birthday.
She would have been 91.
She was on this earth for 87 years.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope your day was a happy one. πŸ˜€

A mom's hug lasts long after she lets go.


  1. That quote made me tear up. I've had my mom on my mind...her birthday was the 23rd. 110 years ago.

  2. ...you have had some wonderful foggy starts to my days. Will you ever run out of doors?

  3. Hi Karen. Happy birthday in Heaven to your mom. My mom's birthday was July 12. She would have been 101. The houses in your town sure have some interesting doors. I am making your recipe for spaghetti pie tonight! It is so good. I'd better get going and get it fixed. See you tomorrow!

  4. The fog certainly creates a different mood to things.

  5. So nice to meet another new person in town. I need to know more about the fried bread! I love the door today and the quote is really beautiful too. Happy birthday to your mother in heaven.

  6. I really like the doors you have been showing. Love that first foggy shot. Your mom lived a nice long life...did you live close to each other?

  7. Love reading about your daily walks. I must ask what is fried bread?

  8. You know I love those foggy pictures.

  9. a vert sweet sentiment/thought for your mom♥ mine is 91 as well. fried bread french toast maybe? also ♥ the fog pics!

  10. Farmer Marvin sure moves his bulls and horses around a lot.
    I was wondering if you have a schedule for getting your housework done?

  11. Happy 91st birthday to your mom in heaven.

  12. Great quote at the end.

    God bless you and yours.

  13. Hello,

    Love the foggy scenes and the door. The Mom quote is lovely.

    Have a great day!

  14. Re: your comment about getting Tuberous Begonias... Yes, try them! They have been wonderful for years and years, in our front 'stoop' planter. Which gets only a tiny bit of sun, in the morning.

    But be sure to get Tuberous Begonias. For a bigggg display.

    Other begonias are great too, but they are smaller.

    We put the Tuberous Begonias in the pot, for a prominent display.

    Other smaller ones, we put in the little garden, and in smaller back patio pots.


  15. I like the collage of your walking photos. Another great door! By now you are done with todays walk. Have a good day!

  16. Wishing you a lovely day . . . a day of rejoicing and being glad :) That door has so much character, if it could talk the stories it would tell. Looks like it has been there a very long time.

  17. I would enjoy walking with corn fields all around. We have had lots of foggy mornings lately. My brother reminded me of an old saying, "For every foggy morning in August, it will snow that many days this winter." So, let's hope the fog clears before August begins.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
