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.

Sunrise, wood flooring and dry wall

Another 6 mile walk this morning.
It was 22 degrees, no wind and I got to see the sun come up.
A good start to the day. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Walked through town down toward Happy Trails, then back to town,
around one of the cemeteries, then to the other side of town
and walked around the small industrial park.
This road runs along between the main road and the industrial park.
It's a dead end so have to turn around and walk back.
A nice quiet street and one I enjoy walking down.
Before I knew it my walking time was up and I had to head back home.
๐ŸŒบ     ๐ŸŒบ
After breakfast we left and picked up Ronnie, our builder and we went
to the floor store to make our final decision about the wood floors
for the kitchen/dining and living room.

So many beautiful woods to choose from but we ended up picking
this Hickory wood floor with random widths and lengths.
We like a little more knots in our floor so ours will have more
knots in it than this sample.
The place where we ordered it from makes all their own boards at the shop.

After we dropped Ronnie off at home Ken and I went up to the new house.
The dry wall is done in our bedroom.  Took this picture standing in the corner.
At the opposite corner is the walk in closet.
 A peek in the bathroom
and the second bedroom is our office which we will share.
The rest of the dry wall will be done this week.
It is really looking like a house now and we are both very happy with
how it is all going and excited to know it won't be long now before
we will be living here. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Before coming home we stopped at Cornucopia Cafe in Grantsville
and had lunch.  
I had the Ham and Swiss Pretzel. It was very good.
Ken liked his Eggplant Parm Panini too.

This afternoon I started reading another book.
Oh, and by the way at 3:00 it started snowing again
and we are supposed to get at least 6 inches.

Life is Good
Count your blessings and have a happy day.

Rainy Day

The ice has all melted on the town pond and after so much
rain it is VERY full.
๐ŸŒ‚     ๐ŸŒ‚
This morning had my usual 6 mile walk around town and
made a few loops around the cemeteries and the ball park loop.
 It was 49 degrees and it rained the whole time I was walking. 
 I don't mind walking in the rain.

 Didn't take my umbrella because I wore my rain pants and yellow slicker
with the hood.   
It was nice hearing the rain on my hood.
Near the end of my walk though I didn't enjoy it as much because
somehow rain had dripped down my slicker and my shirt got wet.

Lots of worms all over the place.
The little stream behind the ball park loop has come up over its banks.
A while ago I lost my pepper spray.  Thought it was in some pocket and
looked through all my walking clothes and just couldn't find it.
Today while I was walking I was so surprised to see it in the grass on the side of
the road between the library and the car dealer.
It must have dropped out of my pocket and got covered in the snow.
I checked it out and it still works fine. 

As you can expect on this rainy day I didn't see any one else out walking.
๐ŸŒ‚     ๐ŸŒ‚
Got the usual house chores done and then finished another puzzle.
This is the last one for the season.  
I've put them away and will take them out again next year.
The temperature dropped during the day and by mid
afternoon it was snowing like crazy.
We just got a dusting though and I think that will be all we get,
at least for now.

Life is Good
Count your blessing and have a happy day.

Pink Baby Blanket

๐ŸŒธ     ๐ŸŒธ
A little misty when I started walking this morning and very windy but the
temperature was a warm 54 degrees.
The mist stopped after about a mile and during the rest of my walk
 it was just cloudy.

My usual walk all around town again up and down all the streets.
Thought with the warm weather I'd see a couple of others out
walking but again no one at all.

Sure is nice being outside walking to watch the beginning of another day.

Walked 6 miles

Ken went to get another load of stone and brought it up to the new house site.
I left a little after he did and went to church for Baby Blankets.
I was sick last month and missed it so it was nice to get back there again.
There were 8 of us there today.
This is the pink blanket I've been working on.
I've gotten five rows of 7 squares sewn together
so I'm half done and have 4 squares finished for the next row. 
Had some lunch when I got home and then did a few house chores
before sitting down to do a little reading.

Life is Good
Count your blessings and have a happy day.
