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

The hutch and an evening walk

No walk for me this morning.  We got up and were on the road by 7:00 in the FJ with our utility trailer behind us.  We were off to Pennsylvania to my parents house to pick up the hutch.  With a stop for breakfast we were at their house a little after 10:00.  Loaded the trailer with the hutch had a couple hours visit and were back on the road headed home.  The nice cool sunny day was perfect for the ride up and back. Parked in front of the house we started to unload the hutch to bring it inside.  Our neighbors Tom and Michele were walking by and saw me having a bit of trouble with Ken trying to get the hutch up the front stairs into the house. Tom offered to help and him and Ken had both pieces up the stairs and in the kitchen in no time at all.  I'm going to bake some chocolate chip cookies for him to say thank you.
This picture of the Hoosier and cabinet is where I planned to put the hutch.  
The cabinet is now up in my loft and the Hoosier is back in the old house.
This picture is the hutch in place.
 When I get all the Fiestaware on it I'll post another picture.  Didn't feel like doing it today because it will be a big and fun job.  I will have to rearrange some kitchen cabinets too. 

We went out to Bertucci's for supper and when we got home I decided to go for a short walk because I didn't go in the morning.  I headed out a little before 7 and walked over to the lake.  I couldn't believe how many people were there!! I didn't walk all around the lake because it was starting to get dark.  
I took this picture of the evening sky.
 I only walked a little over three miles and by the time I got home it was dark!  I didn't see any wild life this evening.  It was nice walking in the evening but I much prefer walking early morning and I'll be out there again walking in the morning. :-)

Hope you had a happy Friday.
Happone :-)


  1. How nice to have and also be a good neighbor.
    I look forward to seeing your hutch all filled up with your Fiestaware. It looks like a great piece with unlimited possibilities for accessorizing. How fun.
    I also love your hoosier. I always thought it would be fun to have one, but I have never had a kitchen with enough wall space to put one. Where will you put it if you sell your house?
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. What a great piece of furniture and what a friendly, helpful neighbor! Your Hoosier is very nice, too. You really had a wealth of choices!

  3. Karen, I love the hutch -- I am so excited to see the fiesta ware on it. I am wanting to purchase some for my house since I am doing a Italian look with Rooster and wine vineyard look in my kitchen and dining room. What color(s) do you have? Love you, Pamie

  4. Kim, we will eventually sell the hoosier too.

    Pam, I collect the 6 original colors and all the colors will be on the hutch.

  5. I'm glad to see the hutch has made it safely to your home. I agree. It is a lot of fun to arrange dishes in such a fine piece of furniture. Looking forward to seeing another picture with the fiestaware in place! Lovely!

  6. I like the hutch you got from your parents. I also like the fact that you have nice neighbors who helped you get it into your house.

  7. I think I spotted you in the car with the trailer behind -- but it was on Saturday evening around 4:45.

  8. Kathy, that was probably us. We took the Hoosier to Savage.
