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

Ken and the tree trunks

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿

44 degrees this morning and sunny.  A beautiful morning for walking and another good thing is now it is light so no more walking in the dark.

No wind  in town but here along the Farm Loop road in the wide open there was a bit of a breeze but with the warmer temperature it didn't matter.

I walked the Farm Loop in the opposite direction than I usually do. I used to walk it this way all the time and then
changed the direction for something different and then just kept going that way.  There is just as many hills either way I walk so it is a good mix of up and down.

Walking past Farmer Bill's place, two of his dogs came out to greet me.  One is Oscar but I've forgotten the other ones name.  They are friendly and I've met them both before.  Farmer Bill appeared from around the house a moment later and called them back.

Once back to town I walked around one of the cemeteries and the ball park loop and then home.
Walked 6.2 miles.

This morning after breakfast I drove to church for Baby Blanket day.  Seven of us worked on blankets.  Sandy counted up all the blankets we've made since the beginning of the year and the total was 83.

Ken showed up at church too with the tractor and trailer.  Two big pine trees were cut down on the church property and the trunks have been sitting around waiting for someone to come and take them away.
 No one came and there they sat so Ken asked if we could have them.  A friend from church knows some one who has a saw mill and said they would cut up the trees for slab wood for us. The slab wood will be perfect for the outside of our cabin at Happy Trails.
We just have to get the logs to the saw mill.
Ken getting them loaded onto the trailer with the tractor.   I took this picture and then left for home.
Late afternoon Ken came home with the logs and trailer.
It's been a nice sunny day all day. : )  Still a little on the cool side but a beautiful day.
Plan to do a little reading and knitting later.  Maybe make a few weave-it squares too.

A happy day to you.

  1. Imagine if the other dog was named Mayer

  2. It's always fun to see what you two are up to.
    That is an impressive number of blankets you gals have made.
    That's also an impressive tree trunk Ken is maneuvering there.
    It does look like you had a pretty day today. It was sunny here too.

  3. The town where you live always looks peaceful and beautiful. I've wondered before if you ever worry about barking dogs when you are out walking. I am such a fraidy cat. I miss a lot because of being afraid of things.

  4. Looks like some hard work - the sign of spring, I suppose :)

  5. Hello, pretty views from your farm loop walk. I like the dove. I am looking forward to seeing your cabin done. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  6. Lol...chuckling at Adam's comment. Very grateful the dogs are friendly...dogs scare me. :( Looking forward to seeing pictures of the cabin. Sometime consider linking up your pics on Fridays. :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Busy, busy again! It looks so lovely where you live. Can't wait to see how your cabin looks.

  8. Hope you share what you do with the logs at the cabin. Thanks again for taking us on another walk.

  9. I'm sure the logs are a blessing! I hope to see them adorning the cabin soon!


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
