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

 54 degrees this morning when I walked.
Calm and dark at first, then a mix of sun and clouds.

Saw 6 deer as I drove to town - all along the corn.

If you look closely you might be able to see the morning moon
 above the corn just about in the middle of the picture.


Clouds had such a pretty color to them this morning.


Had a very random walk all over town and around both cemeteries.

Saw John, Rebecca, and Joy out on this beautiful fall morning too.

I was down at the fence by the bulls talking to them when
Farmer Marvin came by in his truck.
He stopped and got out of the truck and we had a little chat.
There are 39 bulls at the barn at this time.
The reason they were all hollering a few days ago is because
they were just taken away from their mothers.
Eventually the bulls will be sold.

Walked 6 miles

Baby Blanket work day and I spent the morning at church 
with 7 other women making blankets.  
I handed in the October blanket and continued
working on the November blanket which I already started at home last week.

After reading on GrannyMarigold's blog that she made a crustless
pumpkin pie I decided to try one too.
Ken doesn't care for the crust anyway so this seemed like just the thing.
I mixed up my regular pumpkin filling and just put it right in the 
pie plate without crust, (sprayed the plate with vegetable spray)
cooked it the same amount of time and it came out great!!!
Wanted to see how it turned out before I tried it for Thanksgiving.

Never made it outside for my afternoon hike but it was 
another beautiful fall day, though a bit on the windy side.

That's all I've got for today.
Thanks for visiting.
A happy day to you. πŸ™‚

♥the moon/corn pic! may have to give the pie recipe a try. What are the colors of the November blanket or should I wait til November? Glad I stopped by today.

Re:the pumpkin pie ��...you said you made like always. My question is do you use the recipe off the can? (I use canned pumpkin).

Beautiful sky, nice steps and a LOT of calves.

I wonder if Roger would like the crustless pumpkin pie...he loves my crusts on apple and cherry pie, but not sure it matters to him with pumpkin. I ought to try that.

Rose said...

Meant to say I like those steps.

I do see that moon. Here we hear the cows crying when they take the babies away. It's so mournful. Hope your evening is lovely.

That's a lot of bulls.

I might have to try crustless pie this Thanksgiving. I imagine it would be a lot fewer calories without the crust. See you again soon!

Beautiful cotton candy clouds!

The corn field picture is my first choice for today too. It says fall for sure. It’s a noisy affair around here when the calves are weaned. The mammas are on one side of the fence making quite a racket and the babies, who aren’t really babies anymore, are bawling their hearts out. I feel so sorry for them all. I like that you talk to the bulls. I talk to the cattle too. I think they like it and learn to expect it.

I love pumpkin pie, it's one of my favorites. I like the bottom crust but usually don't eat the crust around the pie.

Poor bulls.........

Crustless Pumpkin Pie... Interesting.

My daughter in law loves pumpkin pie, but has to be very careful of Gluten. And G/F pie crusts aren't necessarily delicious, so... Maybe I should make this for her. Thank you! Both of you. -smile-

I'm not a fan of crust on pies either. :)
