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

Home again

It was a warm morning again for walking but cloudy and very windy and once again I walked into town.
I took this picture standing in one of the three cemeteries I walk through.  The arrow shows about where Happy Trails is located.  I'm about 2 1/2 miles from there.
I'm walking along this road coming back from the cemetery where I took the previous picture.
In the photo I've just left the second cemetery and this is a shot of the small pond at the edge of town.  This was the road that was closed the last few days and is now open.
I don't usually see anyone else walking or running but today I saw a runner.
Ken picked me up in the parking lot by the pond.
I walked 5.6 miles.
I took a few pictures of some cows that live on the farm across the street from us and posted them on my photo blog if you want to see them.

We only had half a day up at Happy Trails today.  One of the things we did was to mark out the place where we are going to build our cabin.  : )

After lunch we cleaned up and got ready to head back home and left about 1:40.
We stopped at the pie place on the way home and bought a Lemon Crunch Pie and I'm looking forward to having a piece of it for my snack later on tonight. : )

Hope you enjoyed your day.
Don't forget to count your blessings tonight.
Happyone : )
The tragedy of lie is not that it ends so soon,
but that we wait so long to begin it.

Ruth - No plans to move to Happy Trails permanently.  Just a fun place to get away and be in the woods for a while. : )  We will building the cabin ourselves which will probably take a few years!!!


  1. Definitely a day to count our blessings. Did you read Susan Branch's blog today? Have a good evening with that pie! It sounds very tasty.

  2. Sounds like you all got quite a bit done at Happy Trails this week.

    Can't wait to watch the house begin to go up--although I know it will take a long time... You two will enjoy building it yourselves...

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Oh just the thought of building a cabin in a beautiful spot make me smile. Good for you 5.6 miles !

  4. What fun to decide where the cabin will be! It's going to be great.

  5. I helped my husband build a shed quite a few years ago. It took us several weeks. I can just imagine how long it will take you to build a cabin. It will be fun though. Working with Jim building our shed is a very happy memory for me.

  6. It will be fun to watch the progress of the cabin!!

  7. Sweet! Once you get your cabin up, it will feel like a second home for sure. Enjoy the day. Art

  8. Happy Trails will be a perfect change-of-view!!!
