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

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Clearing the Land

I went for my usual morning walk.
64 degrees and a light drizzle at times but mostly just cloudy.
Walked around town for my usual 6.2 mile walk.
๐Ÿšœ     ๐Ÿšœ
Right after breakfast we drove up to Happy Trails to watch the
clearing of the land start.
We stayed ALL day watching and didn't do anything else!!
A few thunder storms passed but it didn't stop the work.
Rainy times I went and sat in the truck.

Pictures I took throughout the day.

Isn't this a neat big rock?   That's my foot on it.
I'm sure we will find a good use for it!!
Tomorrow the digging of the foundation starts and we will be there for that too.

That's it for today.
 A happy day to you.

Sara-Jane, if you're reading this,


  1. Makes you wonder what we did without machines?

  2. ...rocks can be a blessing or a curse.

  3. What an exciting day! It'll be really interesting for you to watch it come along. Hope there are no big glitches and you end up loving the new house!

  4. It's my mum's birthday too. She's 77.
    I hope you had a good walk. They're good photographs but you wouldn't put them up if they weren't. I'm busy watching Laurel and Hardy films. They are so funny. I'm in hysterics and I can't help myself. I think everyone should watch them.

  5. Yes! Glad that a start has been made! It has to be so exciting.

    And yes, keep that rock for something!

  6. Progress! It must be exciting to watch all this unfold.

  7. I'm excited to watch the progress on your dream home!

  12. The clearing looks like it is going well, Building a new home is so exciting, I remember wanting to stay all day and watch as ours was built! Have a blessed day,

  13. Love that rock too! Almost looks like the state of Texas.

  14. How exciting! I love to watch stuff like that happening :) That is a very cool rock. I'm sure you'll find a neat spot for it, front and center. Congrats on clearing the land!

  15. How exciting to be able to watch your new home being built. Hope it all goes well and you get what you need done before winter sets in.

  16. How exciting, I'm glad you took lots of photos to be able to look back on. That was an interesting rock, like the base of an old tree trunk xx

  17. Wow! Turn my back for a couple of days and the land is cleared, the foundation is about to be dug, and you've found Plymouth Rock!

  18. Hope all goes well with the new home, have to keep updates! Thanks for the share!

  22. Exciting times for you. That rock is something else. It will be fun to see what you decide to do with it. A very happy night to you!

  23. Oh wow! You are building!! I seemed to have missed so much in my absence. This will be very exciting for you... and us to watch its progress.

  24. This must be so exciting for you.
    I'm so pleased to see all the photographs here.
    Hope the building work and all it involves goes well for you over the next weeks and months.

    All the best Jan
