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

Another day

I went for a walk first thing this morning and walked among the clouds.  Here I'm walking down the gavel road alongside our land on the left side.
A little farther along you can see the sun starting to come through the clouds.
I walked up the hill again past the horses like last week but it was still foggy there and I couldn't see to the end of their field. 
I'm surprised this tree is still standing here with its roots all exposed like that.
I just walked one way this morning.  An hour after leaving on my walk, Ken left in the truck to pick me up.  I had just walked passed this stream here when he caught up to me and picked me up.
By then the sun was shining and did the whole day.  A beautiful sunny day in the low 80's.

I never did get to stain the deck because the wood still didn't dry enough but I did paint a couple of big old metal wheels black. 
Ken dug a couple of holes with the tractor on both sides of our driveway and put in some posts and then hung the wheels on them.  It's kind of hard to see them in the picture.
We have decided to paint them maroon instead so they will stand out more and will put a white and red rope from one wheel to another across the driveway.  We've bought the paint and rope this evening and tomorrow I'll paint them again.

Ken made some good progress with the shingles on the tractor barn and completed one side. 
We've been enjoying the couple of days up here so much that we have decided to spend another night here.  We usually go home Saturday so I can go to church Sunday morning but I don't think God will mind if I skip a week. : )

Maybe tomorrow I'll get the deck stained.
I haven't had time to visit with any of you because once again I'm at MacDonald's and don't have that much time, but I'll catch up once I get back home.

Hope your day was a good one.
A smile from me to you. : )

    because they move confidently in the same pattern,
    intricate but gay and swift and free."

  5. Since you're enjoying the time there so well, perhaps you'll look for a church away from home. I always used to enjoy our "summer" church. Love those big wheels!

  6. The big wagon wheels are a perfect touch for your entrance. What a clever idea.
    I know you feel good about the progress you're making this weekend.

  7. That's a beautiful country lane you walk along. The cart wheels make a lovely entry to your land. Enjoy your stay.
