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

An unwelcome guest

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿

This morning is was 55 degrees with some sun and some low hanging clouds to walk through.

I walked through town and up Sale Barn Rd.  Once I encountered a couple of dogs so now always turn around on a bend in the road just before I get to the end where the dogs live.  Today I was just about there when a pickup truck pulled up along side of me and the man said, "Watch the dogs!"  I told him I knew about the dogs but thanked him anyway. 

I had a most unwelcome guest with me for about a half mile when I was walking - A Fly.  What a persistent fellow he was buzzing around me!!  I'm thinking he spotted a cow and went to bother her. : )

I walked around one of the cemeteries and the ball park loop too once I got back to town.

No coins today but during the month of August I found 40 cents - 3 dimes, a nickle, and 5 pennies.
Walked 5.3 miles.

A work day up at Happy Trails.  We got the back part of the roof finished.  Now we don't have to keep putting the tarps over it anymore. : )  The panels that you see standing up there are for the front part of the roof.  They will go up tomorrow.
We didn't stay ALL day and came home around 3:00.  I've been cutting more of the flannel figures out and now have two of the sheets completed and little bit of the third.  I have to stop and rest every so often because my fingers are really getting sore.

We ended up going to Brenda's for pizza for supper.  I hope to make the eggplant for  us and our neighbors on Friday.  If they can't make it then, I'm just going to make a couple of eggplant Parmesans and we can eat one and I'll give them the other one.

I'm off to watch a little television now and have my ice cream.

Hope your day was a happy one and you smiled often.

He is the happiest, be he king or peasant,
who finds peace in his home.

  4. Good morning, those dogs must be a menace. Your cabin does look good, what is going to be on the outside, vinyl siding? Enjoy your day!

  5. You and Ken are making GREAT progress on the cabin!!!

  6. The cabin looks great!
    When we walk in the morning Chuck is the one who usually gets bothered by a fly to two.
    While we lived out in the country in Nova Scotia we always had to be on the lookout for dogs too. No fun!
    Have a good day!

  7. Those flies are so annoying! Especially when they wear out their welcome.
    Great progress is being made on your cabin.

  8. The cabin is nice! Sounds like you had a good day. :)

  9. Your cabin looks great, if there is a fly nearby he will find me. ~smile~
    Thanks for sharing.

  10. I've never been bothered by a fly on a walk, but those pesky little gnats make up for their absence!

  11. Well I'd be a bit leery of loose dogs myself, it's nice the man warned you. I hate pesky flies.
    Looks like the cabin is coming along nicely.

  12. I guess you had the day just "fly" by!
