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

A day on our land

We left early this morning at 5:45 and drove up to our land.  We had a couple of rain showers on the way up but it was supposed to clear up and be nice.  It stopped raining but we never saw the sun. 
Still we had a good time trekking all over our land.  We found the borders for the second piece of land which we really don't even own yet.  We go to closing this week!!
Picked out a couple sites where we would like to build our cabin and a shed though these might change again.  But we are happy with our choices so far.
See Ken in his orange sweat shirt?  He's marking a tree on our property line.
This one is looking down our driveway to the road.
And here i am walking up the driveway.
Here's a mini falls in our little brook.
In the middle of walking around and planning we took a break and ate lunch in the truck.  I  made chicken salad sandwiches on rolls and we had pumpkin bread for dessert. 
Around 2:30 the fog started rolling in.
And we headed back home at 3:00.  When we first started home the fog was pretty bad.  I took this picture through the windshield.
Luckily it only last a little while and soon we were in the clear again.  
So we are home safe and sound once again and enjoying a nice quiet evening at home.  

Though i had no morning walk today we walked just over 4 miles on the land and i'm sure i used up more calories walking up and down hills and over rocks than 6 miles on a morning walk. 

Hope you enjoyed your day!!
Happy New Year!!
Happyone : )


  1. Hello There, Happy New Year! Make it a good one. Live and love more and stop worrying about things that are beyond your control. Every day is a gift and you can choose what you do with it!


  2. It's a lovely piece of property. I like that driveway and the road beyond doesn't look too busy...nice fence along the other side. No, I doubt very much that you need worry about walking if you've been climbing up and down all around at the property. I hate driving in fog...it's the worst...fog and snow squalls...ugh.

    Happy New Year's Eve and a Bright Wonderful New Year to you both!

  3. love your piece of God's earth

  4. Oh, what a beautiful spot you have. I am so happy for you! Happy New Year! Art

  5. Happy New Year! What a great way to spend the last day of 2011!!

  6. Happy New Year!!!From your pictures, looks like you have a beautiful piece of property. How large is the lot? Perfect for a cabin. Will you start to build in 2012?

  7. Your land looks so nice. Pretty and peaceful and the little brook is the icing on the cake.
    Happy New Year to you and Ken. Wishing you much happiness in 2012.
