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 and the cream puffs

☁     ☁     ☁     ☁
Game night was great fun last night and all the food came out perfect.  As promised here's a picture of the cream puffs.  They were a big hit.
We really enjoyed playing Mexican Train and we did a LOT of laughing.  My cheeks hurt from laughing so much. : )  What a great group of people.  It was after 11 by the time they left and the time flew by.

I did all the dishes after they left (they offered to help) and don't even know what time it was when I got to bed, so as was expected I didn't get up at 6:15 and go walking.  Didn't get up till 8:00!!
We had breakfast and I decided I would just do my walking along the trails up at Happy Trails.

Ken walked with me for the first 2 miles and I walked the other 3 on my own.   A couple of the trails where I walked.

Ken installed 4 windows in the cabin when he was up alone last week. 
I'm standing in the same spot to take this picture to the right.  You can see the door which has to be installed yet.  Ken picked it up at an auction for a good price.  It is the same kind of door that was our front door when we lived in the old house in Savage, Md.
Here's looking at the back of the cabin.
This is the area behind the tractor barn where Ken cut down three trees to widen the area there.  Our stone quarry is there off the to left.
And more work was done on the stone wall.
All too soon it was time to go back home where I made us some cauliflower and broccoli soup for supper.

I should be at my book club now but like I said yesterday I haven't finished the book which is The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.  Now today I just got an email from the library saying the book for next months selection is waiting for me to pick it up.  Just can't find the time to read as much as I used to.

Well, it's Wednesday and time for church so I'd better finish up this post and get going.

Hope your day has been a happy one.

  1. So glad that you had such an enjoyable evening, with friends.

    Beautiful walking trails!

    The cabin is coming along nicely. I adore that front door!!!

    Have a great day tomorrow.


  2. Oh those cream puffs look SO delicious! Glad to hear you had such a wonderful time, but then that isn't surprising because you and Ken are so much fun. I can't imagine anyone being around the two of you and not having fun. :)

    The windows look great...and yay, for Ken walking those first two miles with you! Carroll and I took our walk after he got home from work today...his first day back after being off for six weeks. I'd planned an outing with a friend for the day today because I knew I'd miss him even more if I stayed home. :)

    Have a wonderful Thursday tomorrow!

  3. The creme puffs look delicious. I can just imagine how wonderful it was to sink your teeth into them. How wonderful to have a big group of friends to enjoy fun times with.
    HT looks like a very pretty place to walk right now and that cabin is really beginning to look like a home. Love the 2 chairs inside.

  4. The cabin is looking so good!
    I'm glad you slept in and still got your walk.

  5. Thanks for the pictures of the cabin interior. Having built a cabin and a couple of additions myself, i'm really interested in how you're doing it. Looks like you made great progress this summer!

  6. The cream puffs look wonderful. I used to make them,but have not done so in many years.I may have to change that and make some soon.

  7. I haven't ever bowled with a group. It's usually just me and my wife. We might invite a family member or friend but never a regular thing

  8. Sounds like a fun evening with your friends. The cream puffs look delicious, I wish I could eat one now!
    HT is looking great and I like the door. Have a happy day!

  9. Your cabin looks great! The cream puffs look so yummy. Have a great day!

  10. Oh those cream puffs look so good! It's been a long time since I had one. You do stay busy!
