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

✿     ✿      ✿     ✿

The temperature was 44 degrees again this morning and I watched the sun come up and then stay out in a pretty blue sky, though at first there was some patches of fog here and there.

I walked the Farm Loop and two times around the loop by the ball park and then home.

I saw Joyce walking to get her cup of coffee.  She was wearing her green day glow vest and could be easily seen.  I've started wearing my day glow green sweatshirt so I too can be seen better.  Ken suggested I wear that instead of my orange.

Stopped to talk to Farmer Bill.  We love these cool crisp mornings.
I saw 4 deer running in the field and another 2 in the wooded area.  Spotted some wild turkeys too.  Had to zoom in to get a picture before they ran back into the woods.  Sorry for the poor quality of the picture.
I walked 5.6 miles.

Went up to Happy Trails today.  Ken painted this sign on a nice flat rock and put it at the bottom of the driveway.  I thought he did a great job on free hand painting the letters.  Looks like he used a stencil.
We worked on painting the old decking boards and nailing them up on the porch/balcony. 
Painted underneath too.  Picture is kind of washed out.
I went for a walk down one of the trails.
It was a good day at HT. 

Hope your day was a happy one.
happyone : )

It's amazing how many things in life are that easy.

Looked up both wild asters and Michaelmas daisies and they both look like the flowers on yesterday's post.  Just must be called different names here and in England.  Thanks Kim, Robin, Kerri, and Ruta for identifying them for me. : )


  1. Wow - you are already pretty cool in the mornings at 44 degrees. I love the how the work is progressing on your cabin. Your property is just beautiful! Glad you are having a good day.

  2. The cabin is coming along great guns, isn't it? It looks great. And Ken's sign looks quite professional. Enjoy your day,


  3. We are so enjoying these cooler mornings too.
    Love how the cabin is looking!
    Have another nice day!

  4. Hello, lovely images from your walk. I like the turkeys. Does Ken hunt? The cabin is looking great. Have a happy Thursday!

  5. Your pics keep getting better and better ...... you should frame that first one and hang it up in your new cabin!!! It's gorgeous!

  6. I hope those turkeys manage to hide from the hunters. Poor guys.
    HT is moving right along and the new sign looks great.

  7. Ken did a very good job on the sign! It will make you smile each time you see it. And the porch is beautiful - love the color!

  8. Always a treat to see wild turkeys. I know they are out and about but rarely see them. I like the H-T sign - nicely done!
