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.

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.
🚜     🚜
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.

  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.
