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

No walk today

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
I didn't wake up till after 7:00 this morning which is unusual for me.  We wanted to get to HT early so I skipped my walk today.  We were up at HT at 8:30.  Before we left I washed the sheets and hung them out to dry.

Ken put the Ondura on the front part of the roof which is the overhang over our porch.  He was quite high up there.
I was happy when he was finished and was down on the ground safely once again.
No sooner was the roof finished when it started raining.  We sat inside listening to the rain on the roof.  Great sound. : )  I did think about my sheets on the line getting wet though.

We came home lunch time and when we got back in town (just 3 miles away) we noticed that it never did rain in town so my sheets were dry and smelling great.  : )

We have been working so much on the cabin that we have not been doing any work on the stone patio at back so we worked on the for a while this afternoon.  Then the rain came to town.  Had a thunder shower and the plants were all happy to have a drink.

At the 'sale' on Friday Ken bought a box of stuff for 50 cents and down in the bottom of it was this We are Blessed.  I cleaned it up and put a lace bow on it.
I have now finished cutting out 3 of the 4 sheets of flannel characters.  I think I'll be done way before the 2 week time frame.  I wanted to have them all finished so I could bring them to church later but there is no way.  I have to give my hands a rest.

Ken is making our supper now as I type this.  He making sausage and pepper - one of our favorites.  It's smelling pretty good here right about now.  I'm going to go check it out now.
After supper we will head out to church.

Hope your day has been a happy one and you smiled often.
happyone : )

Eileen - not sure what is going on the outside yet.  Thinking about slab wood but not sure yet. 


  1. Love your cabin!! What a place to have a cabin, very jealous am I!

  2. HT looks good! I bet that was fun listening to the rain.
    I hung my sheets out, too!

  3. Wow! HT looks great! I'd be nervous with my hubby up that high, though. He has wisely limited such heights the past few years. So thankful your sheets on the line were spared that early shower! Yes, cutting out those flannel board figures would be hard on one's hands.

  4. Sounds like it was a wonderful day. I would be very nervous too seeing my hubby up that high. Life IS good! :)

  5. Pretty sunrise! The cabin looks great, I can not wait to see it finished. I am glad the high part is done now? Have a happy day!

  6. Another busy day for you. Hope you enjoyed your sausage and pepper supper. Since Ken cooked do you do the dishes? :)

  7. That was a great find!! The bow really makes it stand out!

  8. Rain on the new roof--I imagine it sounded delightful. Glad it held off until you got your sheets off the line. It's nice to find a treasure in a mixed lot box. The lace makes a fine addition to it. Dinner sounds aromatic and yummy.

  9. Sausage and peppers cooking smell so good.

    Boy, Ken is high up on that shot. That would make me quite nervous. But I am sure he's careful.

  10. Cutting out lots of stuff with scissors is quite hard on the hands. You need a break. THe cabin looks wonderful! I love that porch roof. So glad your hubby was safe up there. It looks scary.


Hello my friend.

Thanks. : )
