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

Happy Trails

 Looking up walking at Happy Trails.
 ☀     ☀     ☀     ☀
23 degrees this morning when I left for my walk.  Not much of a breeze and the sun was shining.

Walked around town again and around the cemeteries.  Down by the Drane House a couple of geese took off for the pond when they saw me walking down the road.  I zoomed in and took their picture.
Saw a few rabbits around and lots of birds.  I didn't realized how much I missed hearing them chirping during the winter until I heard them again. : )

Kathy was out walking too but I saw her in the distance.

Only walked 5 miles because we planned on going up to HT today and knew I would get a lot more walking in then.
☀     ☀     ☀     ☀
Did our morning routine around the house and then went up to Happy Trails.  Ken had to stop and get some gas for the tractor and I left at the same time and started walking up towards HT, only walked a half mile before he caught up to me and I rode with him the rest of the way.

Ken started right away cutting down a few trees and taking out 7 tree stumps from the cabin site.  I spent the morning burning brush in the fire barrel.  We took a break lunch time and cooked up some hot dogs over a camp fire.  Nothing like a hot dog cooked over an open fire.
In the afternoon Ken continued on clearing the cabin site while I just walked around on the trails.  A few pictures along the way.

This is what the cabin site looked when Ken quit for the day.  Hard to see in the picture but Ken is driving the tractor with a big tree stump in the front end loader.
The orange ribbon is roughly where the cabin will be.
It was a nice sunny day though on the cool side with temperatures in the low 40's.  Nice being outside all day.  We'll sleep good tonight. : )

After a hard days work up at HT we like to go home, get cleaned up and go out for a bite to eat.  This evening we went to Ledo's.

Home now and later I'll have my ice cream snack while we watch a little television.  I'll make a few more squares and then read until bedtime.  
That's it for today.
Hope your day was sunny and bright it and it was a good day.

When it seems that something can't be done, start it,
and see if the rest of it can be done.

  1. Sounds like a full, but good day today...especially the hot dogs cooked over an open fire. I agree...nothing like it! :) Have a great week!

  2. Sounds like a fun day. I am anxiously waiting to be able to spend more time outdoors.

  3. It looks as if you are making good progress at Happy Trails.

  4. Nice sounding day at Happy Trails! Must be exciting to be starting on your cabin.

  5. It's so nice to see the sun at your place again. It sounds like you've had a good day.


  6. Love seeing all the work being done!

  7. The first photo is a good example of why I enjoy your blog so much. Most people don't look up. You do, and also take and share a photo with us. Nice composition on that photo too! Bet that lunch was good!

  8. I am way behind with reading blogs! Love that picture looking up toward the sky at HT. In fact, I love all that I've seen of HT! We've heard the geese around here. I don't think they ever go very far, though.

  9. Well, I tried a comment, and it didn't work! Wonder what's wrong. Will this one post? Anyway, I just said that I like that picture looking up toward the sky at HT, and I actually like everything I've seen about HT.

  10. Oh, your cabin is going to be amazing!!!!
