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

Plain and Simple

It was a cloudy morning walk with a temperature of 65 degrees
and a bit windy at times. 

Walked through town and over to the industrial park.
Then back to and around town.
Made a loop around the ball park and
around the cemetery on top of the hill.

Went behind the Drane house to get a look at the farm pond.


Going back down the hill to the where the Jeep is parked.


Very quiet around town this morning.
Didn't see anyone else out walking.
Not even one person did I see to say Good Morning too!

Walked 6 miles
Found a dime

Garden Shed Number 13
Plain and Simple

A couple more loads of rocks today and the Island is now finished.
There is one final thing to do but will keep that as a surprise.
Pictures coming soon.

Now we have decided to put rocks on the other side of the driveway too. 
 No paths here though just big rocks.
It is a smaller area, hilly, and no room for paths.

Took a break in the middle of working and stopped at the library
to pick up a book I had on hold, The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand.
Dropped off our trash at the dump.
While out we eat our lunch parked by the lake again.


And that's been my day.
Thanks again for stopping by.
A happy day do you. πŸ™‚

Your Goldenrod looks in fuller bloom than here. Ours is beginning to bloom...just not in full force yet. That is a nice view of the lake. Another nice garden shed.

I got some books by that author this summer at a thrift shop. I haven't read any of them and would love to know your thoughts when you finish the book. Can't wait to see the finished island! See you tomorrow!

Lunch by the lake sounds perfect! I’ve read some of Elin Hildebrand, though not the one you mention.

Eating a lunch at the lake sounds like so much fun. almost anything would taste good there.

The goldenrod picture is beautiful. Plain and simple is my favorite garden shed so far, but I might add a pretty flower or two. We also enjoy eating out…. Out by the lake that is.

Sounded like a very blessed day.

Beautiful 😍

It was shocking to find goldenrod growing in my garden yesterday! Try as I might (my tug is not as effective as it once was), I could not budge it. This is going to require a grandson's muscle.

I am looking forward to seeing your rock project completed. One thing is sure, you will always have a project!

Jeanette said...

That is a beautiful view to eat your lunch by! I enjoy pretty much all of Elin Hilderbrands books.

Sounds like a really good day to me. The goldenrod flowers are so pretty. I just love them. Must be fun to park by the lake and eat lunch.

And thank you for saying the title of your latest book. I'm going to reserve it at my library. -smile-

Of the 4 books I got out, one is not for me, and one I have already read. LOL. So with only 2 left, I should reserve another.
