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

My Thursday

 It was a cloudy morning and 58 degrees.
Walked all over town and around the industrial park.
The farm pond down by the bulls is so over grown
that you can barely see the pond.
I stopped to take a look at it and noticed a deer doing the same thing.
She's in about the middle of the picture.


A few seconds later Farmer Austin (Marvin's son) scared her
off when he came down the road in his truck.
He stopped the truck to say hi.
The bulls came running over to the fence when Austin got there
and started mooing quite loudly.  They know who feeds them!!! πŸ˜€

A bit of fog around this morning.


When I first got to town I saw John walking his dog.
Later when I was just getting back to the car I saw
Rebecca walking her dog Leo.

Walked 6 miles

Today's Garden Shed (10)
I like this one.  
It's comfortable looking, like it belongs there.

Ken went to church after breakfast to change the VERY SHARP
blades on the cutter we use for Fingerprints.
It's something I couldn't help him with so I stayed home.
Before he left though he parked the tractor where we
are getting the rocks so I could fill up the bucket while he was gone.

I did my routine chores around the house and then went
outside and collected rocks and filled the bucket.


I can drive the tractor but not so good with driving it though
the woods with a load and not comfortable dumping it so
left that part for Ken to do. πŸ˜€

I puttered about the yard.
Cut down all the dead daisies, and put a few things around
in the Rockscape Island.
A little flag, some pots of plants, and an old milk can.
When Ken came home he brought the tractor back and we
put the rocks around in the Island.
It is almost done now, a few more days should do it
if we have good weather.
I'm very pleased and it looks just how I pictured it.

Ken got the blades on the cutter changed pretty easily
and all is well for the next Fingerprint day.

After a good days work we were ready for homemade pizza.
So that's what we had for supper.


This evening I'll be working on weave-it squares.
A week from today is baby blanket day and I'd like to have
it done by then.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
A happy day to you. πŸ™‚

Hi Karen. I like that garden shed too. It looks like a shed should look. Some of them look like a child's playhouse. My the pizza looks so good. It makes me hungry so I'd better go get started on dinner. See you again soon!

You had a good full day. I agree that the shed looks just right there. I leave the tractor driving to Dear and our son. Happy evening to you!

I love it that the Bulls come running...that means they are well taken care of. There is a farm where I used to take pics of the cows...I always told Roger they were loved.. they always looked at me like they expected a treat.

That deer looking over the beauty of the forest was a wonderful capture. Can't wait to see the finished rock garden.

Ahhhhh, you saw MIST!

Which is incorporated in my new blog name. My same old blog, with a different name, that is.

Well, at least, it shows, on my blog header. Even if not, elsewhere.
