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

Walked the Farm Loop

59 degrees this morning when I left walking.
A little fog around at first but that was soon gone and it was sunny.
Just a bit of a breeze to keep things cool.

Walked straight through town and around the Farm Loop.

The donkeys were out and I stopped to say hello.

A little horse was out in this field but wouldn't even look up at me.

 Queen Anne's Lace down by a little stream.

 The corn is taller here on the FL than over by the cemeteries.
It is taller than I am.  (5'5")

Didn't see any one while walking the FL but when I got back to town
and walked around the ball park I saw Joy. 

The other person I saw was a riding a bike - don't see many
bike riders around.

Walked 6 miles

Todays door is two barn doors - the barn is along the Farm Loop.

Food shopping day at the Shop and Save.
Since we go every week we don't need to buy so much at one time.
Makes a quick in and out.

Home the rest of the day just getting chores done around the house.
Walked around outside some too.
Hasn't rained for a couple of days so watered the flowers
and my tiny garden which still only has 1 eggplant and 1 pepper.

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

A few asked about fried bread - French toast.  

Rose - No, I never lived near my mother once I got married.  The nearest was when she lived in Altoona, Pa and we were in Ellicott City, Md - it was 2 1/2 - 3 hours away.

GrannyM - Don't really have a cleaning schedule.  I used to have one basic cleaning day a week and did everything.  Now I start on Monday and work till I get tired of it.  I do that each day until Friday arrives and everything is done.  


  1. Corn tall here as well. Queen Anne's lace a pretty pic as well as the red doors. Pony giving you the cold shoulder? lol You had a happy day!

  2. The corn is nice and tall and the Queen Anne's Lace looks very nice.

    All the best Jan

  3. So many pretty places! Love seeing the flora and fauna you encounter...and the old doors.

  4. That first photo is simply gorgeous...


  5. ...Queen Anne's Lace line the road here now and corn is as high as an elephant's eye!

  6. I like those donkeys. The barn doors look well used and I always like that.

  7. That corn looks great! I'm really enjoying the doors you are posting. What a cute little horse. I like the donkeys, too. Hope you sleep well tonight.

  8. Donkeys do tend to be fairly social.

  9. I love the pictures today...all of them!

  10. Another nice walk and lovely day for you. See you again tomorrow!

  11. Queen Anne's Lace by the stream makes a pretty picture.
    Thanks for answering my question. I'm always wondering how others get their housework all done. In summer I fight a losing battle against dust and messy floors but I think the fact that we're 6 of us in the household makes a difference.

  12. Saturday is my day for cleaning. Just one a week...get 'er done.

    Love the donkeys & pretty q a lace. Also, just a note...would love to have your morning temp right now.

  13. Hello,

    I love the donkeys and the little horse. The Queen Anne's Lace is pretty.
    The corn is growing fast here too. Take care, have a happy day!

  14. A very pretty walk. It's headed for the upper 90s here tomorrow so the walking is happening indoors. I know that probably wouldn't hold you back, but I am a wimp in high heat and humidity :).
    Your cleaning schedule sounds about like mine which I think is just fine at this stage of life.


Hello my friend.
