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

For Sale

It was 47 degrees and sunny this morning when I went for my walk.  Sunday's walk is usually a little shorter than usual because of church so I only walked 5 miles today.  It was a random walk down a couple of roads and paths.  In the picture I'm walking from one path across the street to another path where it continues.
Quite a few people out for a Sunday morning.
I found two pennies.

We met with Terri our realtor at the old house at 2:00 and things went pretty well.  She made a tour of the house and suggested a few little things that we should do.  Replace some switch and outlet plates, a little touch up of paint here and there but nothing major.  She kept saying what a cute house it was.  She suggested a price lower than we thought but we decided to start with our price. Pictures will be taken of the house tomorrow morning and we will have it listed with a sign in the yard by tomorrow evening or Tuesday morning at the latest.  I'm glad it is at least listed and we've taken the first step to get it sold.

After Terri left we made a trip to Lowe's and got the switch and outlet plates and have already replaced them.  Ken is going to do the touch up paint tomorrow after work.

So now we are happy to be at home to have a relaxing evening.  I am certainly ready to sit back, watch a little television and have some ice cream. : )

Hope all is well in your part of the world and that your day was a happy one.
 The Lord says,
I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
I will advise you and watch over you.
~Psalm 32:8


  1. Oh glad that you met with her and that she got to make her suggestions. They always have a few. Makes'em feel important. Wishing you and Ken a quick sale. Somebody who doesn't want a great big place, but one with a lot of charm. And someone who wants a home for the holidays!

  2. Well, that's good to have the house listing done! Perhaps it will sell more quickly than you might think. Our house sold to the first person who looked at it - in 2004!

    It was a beautiful day here, nice and cool, no clouds in the sky! Just the way I like it.:)

    Enjoy your evening!

  3. Good luck with the sale. I'm glad that you enjoyed the weekend. Art

  4. I hope it sells quickly for your sake. It is a cute house.

  5. I was wondering about price? But see how sweet I am? -gigggles- I didn't ask. :-))))

    In today's market, I'd think that lowering the price, from what you really want... Might be a good thing, though.

    It is so cute!!!

    Good luck!!!


  6. Glad to hear she only suggested a few minor changes. Around here they seem to want you to change everything, which can get quite costly.
    Hope it sells quickly for you. Our last house sold before we had a chance to get the sign up. Our next door neighbor's mother bought it.
