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 another egg

We never did go to Lowe's yesterday because it looked like rain but it never rained either so we could have gone.  So Ken went this morning while I walked and he picked me up in town on his way back.  I had a nice walk into and around town.  I passed by our future home and it's looking mighty nice!! 
I see quite a few of these as I walk around.  : )
One of the first things we are going to do when we move is put up my clothes line!!

I walked 6.4 miles.

We worked on the walls for the shed today.  Here I am right after we made and put up the back wall.  The other side of it is already painted too.
Here we have the other two walls done with the 2 x 4's which are the two sides. Tomorrow we will put on the plywood and stand them up.
We've just been to Lowe's again for the plywood, more paint and a door for the front and will continue work tomorrow.

The bird nest from yesterday now has two blue eggs in it.
The bird flew away so fast yesterday so I didn't get a good look at but I saw it again today and it may just be a Robin.  It just seems too big for a Robin and the color doesn't seem right.  I'll just have to get a better look. She leaves the eggs alone for such a long time.  I wonder how many more she will lay.

Well that's it for today from Happy Trails.  We go back home tomorrow.
Hope your day has been sunny and bright.
Happyone : )


  1. The eggs in the nest and their momma are creating quite the little mystery up there at Happy Trails, aren't they? I sure would like to have a clothesline but here in Arizona we have these darn homeowners associations that pretty much dictate everything we can and cannot have in our yards and clothes lines are considered "unsightly." Really?? Nothing "unsightly" about clean clothing, in my book. Have a marvelous weekend.

  2. I can't miss a single blog until these babies are hatched! MJ

  3. Yes robin eggs are a little lighter blue than that and a bit smaller. I love that picture of the clothes hanging on the clothes line :)

  4. You and your husband are really great carpenters! Such good progress on that shed!

    Now, that's exciting about those bird eggs. It will be interesting to watch.

    Have a safe trip home.
