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

Fingerprint Day 2

52 degrees this morning, calm, with a mix of sun and clouds.

Town was pretty quiet this morning  
while I walked all around it.


 Now instead of saying I saw the man who walks his dog,
I can say I saw John.
Introduced myself to him and he told me his name too.
He told me the name of his dog but I forgot it.

There was a deer and her twins up at the cemetery and again they
disappeared in the corn field when they saw me.
Driving home I saw another deer and her twins.
These were by the side of the road eating apples fallen from a tree.
They weren't in any hurry leaving and I stopped the Jeep, watched
them a minute and then drove on.

Kermit, a man who I met in town planted some pumpkins
and I noticed some of them sitting on the steps out back by his garage.


Walked just 5 miles today.
That's all I had time for because we had to leave.

Garden Shed Number 6

Left first thing after breakfast for another day of Fingerprints.
It was supposed to be from 9 to noon
but we all decided to stay and finish up the whole pallet.
We stayed till 3:45 working.
WOW, it's amazing how many we got done. 
The total Romans books for the two days  
12,877!!
A little work becomes much when God is in it.  ๐Ÿ˜€

Having a nice relaxing evening.
Reading 
Making some squares
Eating ice cream

It's been a good day.
Thanks for stopping by.
A happy and good day to you too. ๐Ÿ™‚
๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป‍๐Ÿฆณ happyone ❤️

Wow! As my grandfather would say, "You did a stroke of work!" I put pumpkins on my steps too, but they usually aren't from my garden!

Well done on the Roman Books over the two days. It is good to work on a Project with Friends.

Wow - that is a lot of little books. You and Ken give so much service to God through your church. That is one big reason you are happy! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Nothing like pumpkins for fall. I have seen some twin deer babes with their mom. So sweet.

A big job well done. What a sense of accomplishment and may His Word never return void.

Love these small town touches you share about your neighbors and friends. That's a nice collection of pumpkins. You and your friends at church are really cranking out those books! My goodness! God bless your efforts. How neat that you got to see two sets of mama deer/twin babies. Very cool!
