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

 This road leads up to the drive way at Happy Trails.
Happy Trails is all along the right here.

It was 60 degrees this morning and cloudy and I walked the Farm Loop.

The cows were out side at the dairy farm and cow number 29 and her family were out in their field too.  

Stopped to talk to Farmer Bill.

When I got back to town there was a bit of commotion because of a car accident.  Luckily it was just a fender bender and no one was hurt.  Not sure who ran into who but it was between a pick up truck and a  Frito-lay delivery truck.

Made a loop around the ball park and then home.
Walked 5.4 miles.

Another day up at Happy Trails.  Weather report said rain and the morning started cloudy but then it was a beautiful sunny day with blue skies.

We got the roof on the bump out entrance done and also the railing.  The post looks like plain wood but it is painted a tan color.  Those are the three colors of the cabin.  Red, Blue, and Tan.
I was just going to stay half a day but ended up staying the whole day.

Still have that book to finish.
Hope your day is a happy one and you smiled often.

The flower that follows the sun does so

Kim - Yes, that is blue nail polish.  It is a real pretty light blue.  I am wearing it now and on each ring finger I've put a midnight blue color on.  I noticed your purple polish when you were holding your ice cream cone. : )  Very pretty.


  1. The cabin is so cute! I can see why you stayed all day!

  2. The cabin is looking cuter and cuter. Can hardly wait to see it when it's all done, but I will exercise patience.
    Your manicure sounds very pretty. I wonder if you would consider putting a picture of it on your blog?? I have been so tempted to buy some blue nail polish, but haven't worked up the courage yet. This might be just what I need to take the plunge :).

  3. Wow, you got so much done on the cabin already. I love it! I can't wait to see it when it's all finished :)

  4. Good morning, I love all the images. The cabin is looking great. Enjoy your day!

  5. The goldenrod is really pretty. Love how the cabin is coming.

    I'm glad that the accident wasn't serious. We had a horribly tragic one here last week, a wonderful 26 year old woman on a bike was hit and killed by a car - broad daylight, long straight road. I guess the driver was not paying attention. He is charged with manslaughter but it is too late for her.

  6. Really lovely, and what a fine place.

  7. Love all your photos. The goldenrod is beautiful here now too.
    You sound a lot like me when it comes to reading a book. I hardly have read a complete book in the last two months. Just no time!

  8. The Goldenrod picture is one that should be enlarged and hung on a wall.

  9. I like the blue -- can't wait to see it when all the colors are on! Great work :)
