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

Rock Crusher

Went to bed late last night (2:30) and didn't get up till 7:30.  Planned to walk later in the day but never did get around to it.  That's what happens, if I don't go in the morning I usually don't walk at all.  Well I guess we all need a day off once in a while.

We made it official today, had the closing on the land and Happy Trails is now 5 acres bigger than it was. 

Later in the afternoon Ken went up to HT to hook the back hoe back onto the tractor because he has to dig a ditch for a friend tomorrow.  Before he did that though he took a couple of videos of the rock crusher working and put it on YouTube.  Here are the two links if you want to see it.  I'm sure you will like it!!  It is really cool.

While he was doing that I got the lawn mowed back at the house and then weeded one of the back gardens.

We had grilled cheese sandwiches for supper sitting on the front porch. : )

Hope your day has been a happy one.

Mom Update : )
I talked to my mom on the phone this afternoon.  She is doing well.  So nice to talk to her.  We are planning a visit in August.  Sunday is her Birthday - 85.


  1. Good to know your mum is doing well. My mum will be 85 in December, it's a good old age, isn't it?


  2. Wow that rock crusher really does a great job!

  3. We both enjoyed seeing the 1920 rock crusher. We both want one! LOL It wasn't as noisy as I had thought it would be. Great set-up! Nice job on the vids, too.

    1. Oh, I was going to say that it is great that your mom is doing well. She must be much happier at home.

  4. That's amazing! Never thought that old machine could do such a great job! Great video too.

  5. Congrats on settling on the land! The rock crusher is amazing. Happy Birthday to your Mom. I am glad she is doing well. Have a happy weekend!

  6. What a great antique machine. Very handy thing to have. I'm glad to hear your Mom is doing better.

  7. Hi Karen, Those "rock crusher" videos are neat. Ken is just amazing knowing how to hook that crusher up to the tractor. Sure glad to hear your mom is feeling better and Happy Birthday to her. Wow, 85! Have a happy weekend!

  8. That second video is really cool -- and a little scary. I hope he keeps his fingers well clear of that crushy action.

  9. Very happy to hear that your mom continues to improve. Happy belated birthday greetings to her.
    I'm off to view the videos now.

  10. Congratulations on closing on the land. That's great!
    I hope you had a good visit with your mother for her birthday.

  11. The rock crusher makes quick work of that job! Yummy! Grilled cheese--one of life's simple pleasures. Congrats on the land! Glad to hear your mom is doing well.
