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 work day

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
Walked down towards Happy Trails, turned around and walked around town, including the two cemeteries.

A State Trooper was down one of the side streets catching the speeders through town.  I walked right passed him and he said, "Good Morning."  I said good morning back and said, "Catch those speeders."  He smiled and said, "I'm trying."

Didn't see any one else out walking and the cows and horses I passed were busy eating and didn't even look up at me.

I am walking up my driveway here getting back home.
Walking weather - 48 degrees and cloudy.
Sunrise - 6:40
Walked 5.3 miles.

I made us strawberry pancakes for breakfast, did a few quick things around the house and we were up at HT getting work done on the roof at 9:30 and worked all day.

We got the next 4 Ondura  panels up today.  The picture is of the 4 panels we put up last time we worked and the first four layers for the next section we did today. Sorry about the dark picture.  Didn't get a picture of the Ondura panels we put up today because by the time I thought to take the picture we had the tarp back on. 
I must have walked up and down the ladder at least 25 times handing Ken things while he was on the roof.

Behind the cabin in one of the trees is a robin's nest with a couple pretty big babies who look like they were trying to fly today.  I zoomed in and got a picture of one of them with its head up looking at of the nest at me.  Mom was in a bit of a panic with us so near and making so much noise hammering.
We worked till 5:15, then home to clean up, eat a quick sandwich and then headed out to church.  Stayed a little after church to help set things up for Fingerprints tomorrow.  We get a day off from the cabin work tomorrow.

So home now and ready to relax after I finish this post.  No ice cream for me this evening.  I'm not sure what I'm going to eat but I'm hungry and want food, not a goodie.

Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )

Elaine - No, that is not a working fire hydrant.  We've had it for years and always put it somewhere on our property.  No water up at HT.


  1. The cabin is coming along nicely. Oh,I do love that first picture with the yellow flowers.

  2. Hello, the black-eyed susans are pretty and your house is cute! HT is looking great. Have a happy Thursday!

  3. That's a long day of work for two 'retired' folks! But having the roof on will make a big difference.

  4. What a busy day you had! I would say that you have no trouble at all sleeping!

  5. Your house looks lovely! The cabin does too. You certainly are having cool walking weather in the mornings.

  6. Hi Happy! Your house is pretty! It looks cheerful and cozy!

  7. We're at the end of this stage of craziness here :) Your cabin is looking great! I like the roof color. Good job -- I know how exhausting that is. No wonder your body wants some real food.

  8. The cabin is really coming along!


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
