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

Three eggs today

I didn't walk this morning because I wanted to help Ken get as much of the upper shed done as we could.  Started right in working at 6:45.

We had a couple of problems with tools jamming up.  A couple staplers got stuck in the staple gun and Ken had to take it apart to unjam it and then the nail gun jammed up on a couple of nails that got stuck and again Ken had to take some time to get it fixed.  But he did and we got quite a lot of work done.

Here's the shed with three of the walls done, and the front framed out.  We put a big tarp on the floor to try to protect it a bit if it rains.  We aren't going to put a garage door in but got a wide regular door - I forgot the dimensions.
There have been so many different birds around HT today.  We saw a Pileated woodpecker, a Blue Jay, finches, crows, a Downy woodpecker and some birds that I've never seen in person before.  One of which was a Scarlet Tanger and I think an Indigo Bunting.

Today the nest on the tractor had another egg in it and I saw the bird a couple of times though I still don't know what it is.  Blogger friend Art suggested it may be a Rufous Sided Towhee and when I looked that up thought yes, that is what it looks like, but they don't lay blue eggs.  Well whatever the bird is, it will be exciting watching and waiting for the babies to hatch.
We left for home about 4:30.  It's been a long day and I'm about ready to sit in my comfortable chair and watch some television and have some ice cream.
I'll be around to visit you all tomorrow.

Hope you had a great day.
Happyone : )
When God allows a burden to be put upon us.
He will put His arms beneath us to help carry it.


  1. Wow---you two got alot done this week. What will you store in the new shed?

    Pretty blue eggs... I suspect that it's a Robin --but like you said, it's unsure.

    Glad you made it home safe and sound. Hope you had a relaxing evening.

  2. You really got a lot done! Good for you.

    The birds eggs are very interesting. I hope you find out what kind of bird it is.

  3. You are making great progress at HT. I hope you are up there when the eggs hatch as I'm very curious to see what type of bird laid the eggs.
    Enjoy your Sunday.
