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

Blanket Day

 This morning it was cloudy and 61 degrees when I went walking.

Walked around town for a while and then headed over to the
industrial park and did a tour around there.


A field of wildflowers in the industrial park.


Once back in town I walked around the ball park.
There I saw Joy, Rebecca, and a man walking a dog.

This week there has been some road work going on in town
and part of the road has only one way traffic, so
people have to wait a bit to get through. 
Not a big deal because there aren't that many cars.
Anyway I'm getting to know one of the people who hold up
the stop sign. Each day she is a little farther down the road.

Todays Door


Walked 6 miles

Today was Babies for Blanket day at church so left after
breakfast for a morning of making blankets.
Breakfast is served there but since I ate at home, didn't eat anything.

I had volunteered to do the devotional this month and
 picked the subject of friends to talk about.
With God's help I think it turned out okay. πŸ™‚

There were 12 of us there today and as always it was
an enjoyable time.
Such a blessing to have this group of women as my friends!
(Hope you decided to stop by Jane - Hi. πŸ™‚ ❤️)

Just puttered about the house this afternoon.
Didn't feel like doing any cleaning!!!
But I did feel like reading and knitting.

Had some rain this afternoon and heard a few claps of thunder.

That's all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
 A happy day to you. πŸ˜ƒ

GrannyM and SusanQ - the blue wild flowers from yesterday are Chicory.  Here's a close up of one of the flowers.

Sounds like a wonderful day for you! Christian fellowship is the best, especially when you're working together on something. Happy Thursday, Karen!

Pretty tree and flowers. I like Chicory, it looks pretty.
The door is cool. Blanket day sounds nice, meeting up with your friends.

Have a great day and a happy weekend!

How rewarding to do something worthwhile with a group of women. It must be boring to hold up a stop sign all day. Nice that you could talk to her. :)

Your new drawing-Icon is cute.

But for myself, I like your last pic of _you_... With bangs and longer hair. It is lovely!!!!!

You know me! Gotta' say what I think. LOL

But of course, your Icon is your Icon.

Gentle hugs...
