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

Puddle Reflection

 It rained last night but by walking time it had stopped.
62 degrees with some sun and clouds.

No special order to my walk this morning.
A very random walk.
Though I did walk around both cemeteries and the ball park.

Very quiet around town this early Saturday morning.
No people and very few vehicles.

Lots of rabbits still around all over the place.

Hay bales look big in a field but when you
walk right up to one they are really big!

This shows how small those tiny horses are.

This is a reflection in a puddle!!
The gray above and below the picture is the road.
I thought it was pretty amazing.

Walked 6 miles

🌤    🥾    🌼

A quick trip to the Dollar General after breakfast to pick
up a few things.

The only work I did today was clean the shower.
Then puttered about inside and outside the house.

Hope your Saturday is a happy one. 🤗
Thanks for stopping by.
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️
Be the reason someone smiles today.

Ann - My walk takes me an hour and 40 minutes in the morning.  That's counting stopping to take pictures and talking to people. Walking is the very first thing I do each morning.  Get up, get dressed, brush my teeth and I'm gone.

...after several weeks without rain, we had a nice gentle rain overnight. Those tiny horses sure have plenty of grass to eat. Today I went to a park with my camera and saw a similar red daylily. Happy 4th, Karen.

All neat photos but that reflection in the puddle is amazing! Wow! I also liked your reply to Ann. Yes, I love morning walks. One difference … I must have 1 cup of coffee, before the walk, just to get powered up. 😊 Happy 4th of July to you and Ken.

Your puddle picture is pretty amazing. The bales of hay and horses in the field make me feel right at home.

That reflection is stunning.

That reflection was interesting...so clear and crisp. The horses are going to be buried in that field unless they start eating fast.

Those tiny horses sure are small. Cute, too.
The reflection in a puddle makes for a very interesting picture.
Have a lovely Sunday and 4th of July.

That picture with the reflection is amazing. It looks like a fancy edit. Love it.
That's pretty good time for a 6 mile walk.

I had to look twice. Are the horses small or the grass tall? What if you put the big bale next to the horse; which will be bigger and by how much? Those houses in the bale picture are too small. Does anyone live there? Tiny people?

God bless.
