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.

Day 3 of block

🍃     🍁     🍂
This morning the temperature was 60 degrees and when the sun came up
there was a mix of sun and clouds.

Had one of my random walks all over the place.

While walking around one of the cemeteries there was a man putting
flowers on a grave and we got to talking.
Every once in a while he stops and puts flowers on a grave of his
friends daughters grave.  She died back in 2003 when she was just 
12 years old.  His friends have moved away so he puts the flowers
on her grave for them and then takes a picture and sends it to them.

Most days people who see me walking all the time will toot the horn
and wave as they pass me.  Today they all must have been out because
I was waving to people all over the place.  👋

Walked 6.4 miles
🍃     🍁     🍂
Ken up at HT building site this morning when I got back walking.
That seems to be his new routine.
Me at home in the morning doing laundry and other chores.
Weather has been nice for hanging the wash out.
Today it's the sheets.

Ken came home for lunch and we didn't go back
because it was bowling day. 🎳
There were  7 of us bowling today.
Not one of my better bowling days,
116, 112, and 132 in that order but as always it was fun.
After bowling we went out for supper again, this time to Ledo's.

Leaving Ledo's we drove directly up to the building site to see the
progress for today.
Took these pictures.

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

Debbie - move in date for the new house they say February, BUT it all depends on the weather.  Hoping to have it roofed by the time the snow comes.  Then they will be able to work inside.
The pictures on my blog are NOT taken with my phone but with my little point and shoot camera - Nikon Coolpix S7000.

Day 2 of block

🍂     🍁     🍃
 Once again I started walking in the fog and
it was 53 degrees and dark.
 The sun broke out after a while and I ended up walking in the sunshine.
Walked behind my house, through town and down toward HT,
back through town, around the ball park and one of the cemeteries.

Saw a deer with her two fawns, spotted the heron again by the pond,
and saw a killdeer there too.

Kathy's car was parked in the parking lot but I never did see her walking.
Walked 6.2 miles
🍂     🍁     🍃
Ken was up at HT at the building site again when I got back from my walk.
I went to the Stop and Shop and picked up a few things.
There were only a handful of people in the store and everyone was very friendly.  
All smiling and saying good morning.
Nice to be around happy people.  😊

Did a few things around the house until lunch time when Ken came home. 
After lunch I went back to the building site with him to see what was going on.
The last load of block was delivered and
 the guys (5 of them today) were busy working on the block.
When they left this is what it looked liked.

Down inside

Out for supper tonight at Brenda's.
Home this evening for knitting, reading, and watching Netflix.

Life is Good
A happy day to you.

There is more to the truth that just the facts.

Debbie - I will be walking on some of the same roads but there will be different ones too.  It will be 2 miles to town so I can walk to town, around town for 2 miles and then back home for the last 2 miles.  I'll also be able to head out in the other direction but there are a lot of steep hills!!  I'll just explore different routes when I get there.  Also I'll have some trails to walk along right on our land.  Won't be able to walk early in the winter because it is really dark without any street lights.  I'll just have to adjust the times.

🍁     🍁
Another foggy morning with the sun coming out after a while.
It was 58 degrees.

Since it was Saturday and no one going to work at the industrial park
I headed over that way for my walk and walked all around there.
 It seems all the rabbits from town decided to meet up there.
I lost count of how many I saw in the IP.

Left there and when I walked past my house I stopped
and dropped off my sweatshirt.  Once the sun made an appearance was warm out.

Continued my walk up one side of town and down the other
before completing my 6 mile walk.
Found 2 pennies
As most early Saturday mornings it was very quiet and peaceful around town.
🍁     🍁
Did a few chores around the house and late morning we went up to
Happy Trails to the house site.
Took along a picnic lunch and had lunch up there.

Wilbur came and hauled the rest of the trees away.
We mostly played with the fire, keeping it going by throwing brush into it.
Ken turned on the leaf blower and blew air in at the bottom of the fire
pile and it sure got a good fire going.
Here's the pile still smoldering away.
I took a walk out in the back yard.
It was nice hanging around up at HT and enjoying the day.
A happy day to you.
happyone 💗
