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

Finished the trusses

No morning walk because we left early for HT.  Unloaded the truck up near where we are building the upper shed.  We put out a tarp and put all the boxes on that and then covered them all with another tarp. Things should be fine there until tomorrow when we put them inside the shed.
We got the end trusses up and most of the bracing done.  Here's a picture of the work so far.
Tomorrow we will be working on the roof and when we finish that will get the front wall done.  We were going to put in a garage door but decided to have just a regular door.

It's been a beautiful sunny day here with a bit of a wind and the temperature was in the mid 70's.  

Just a short post this evening.  It's already just about 8:00 and we still have to go to Lowe's for some building material for tomorrow.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Till tomorrow........
Happyone : )


  1. You are really doing a great job on this building! I hope you continue to have good weather on Thursday!

  2. Nice weather for outside work. The shed is coming right along. Great idea about preparing food ahead and freezing it. Six weeks isn't that long a time, but it would be a long time to eat sandwiches or go out to eat every day.

  3. The building is coming along nicely. You both are doing a great job.

  4. That is looking great. Have fun at your retreat! Enjoy the nice spring weather.

  5. Wow Karen... You all are doing GREAT with your shed... AND--it will hold ALOT of your stuff, won't it????? I'm so proud of both of you and all that you are doing. I'm actually EXCITED for you.


  6. That shed is going up quickly! It will be a great place to store you stuff until you get to move into your new home! Enjoy your Thursday!

  7. You are the "Get it done!" couple!
    I'm amazed at your progress.
    Like Betsy, I'm excited for you two! MJ

  8. I hope the weather continues to cooperate! I enjoy seeing the progress on here :)

  9. A very nice shed you are building. I always enjoy doing projects with my dh, I hope the nice weather continues for you to finish. Thanks for coming by, I always enjoy your visits. I have been so busy I just have not had time to blog lately, and haven't taken the time to get back to walking either. When I come by to visit you I get so motivated to walk, thanks for the motivation.
    Enjoy your day.

  10. I love reading about all the progress. It is so amazing that your townhouse sold so quick and you are preparing to "rough" it for six weeks. At least you don't have to go back and forth between the two places until your new house is ready to move in. Kudos to you and Ken.

  11. You and Ken sure do get a lot done!! It looks great!
