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

A bird bath

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
57 degrees this morning, no breeze and sunny.
Stayed around town today and did all my walk up and down
all the streets in no particular order.
Made the usual loops around both cemeteries
and the ball park loop too.

The lighting caught my eye on the trees and the grass so took a picture.
Saw a few rabbits hopping around by one of the cemeteries.
Only person I saw was Kathy.
A quiet morning around town.

Walked 6 miles
Sunrise 6:38
Sunset 8:00
✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
Stayed home in the morning doing a few things around done around the house.
My usual routine.
Then did some laundry, a little housework,
and then wrote out a few cards for the prison ministry.

Ken was up at Happy Trails and after lunch I joined him up there.
Ken is taking some pallets apart here and the wood will be used inside the cabin.
Once we use the boards I'll post a picture of how we used them.
I picked up deadfall and put it on the natural fence I started last year.
Walking around I spotted this colorful fungus.
Look at this neat big rock we found and
thought what a great bird bath it would make. 
When we add to the water feature back at the house we are going
to incorporate this in it some how.
The weather was delightful today.
Sunny with a breeze and in the 70's.
How blessed we are to have Happy Trails.
: )

Hope your day was a happy one.

My constitution questions don't seem to be very popular. : )
But here is the answer to yesterdays question.
The 6 founding fathers of the constitution were.
George Washington
John Adams
Thomas Jefferson
Benjamin Franklin
James Madison
Alexander Hamilton


  1. Isn't light and how it works - especially in photo's amazing!

    I think that rock will make a super bird bath - but it does look heavy, so hope you can shift it ok!

    All the best Jan

  2. Deadfall? Is that what the fungus/mushroomy looking thing is called?
    That rock is so cool and will make an awesome bird bath. I have no doubts that you two will figure out how to get it moved.
    Your weather sounds delightful.

  3. Happy Trails is SO charming. I LOVE your new birdbath rock.

  4. Alexander Hamilton had a poor tragic death. All about politics

  5. Sorry, I'm not very good on those American constitution questions. But I always like hearing a bit about Happy Trails.

  6. I missed the quiz...yup, absent that day.

    HT is looking so cute nestled into the hillside that way. I love that rock that you are foung to use as a birdbath, which will be perfect!

  7. WOW!!! The light on that tree picture is amazing.I love the natural birdbath.That should be well used by the birds.

  8. The little cabin is coming along good! I cant wait to see the inside.

  9. Absolutely beautiful light in those photos across the trees and countryside!
    How pretty your sweet cabin is at HT!
    Blessings to you!

  10. Oh WOW, the rock is amazing!! It will make a brilliant bird bath.
    Lovely shots of the woods and your cabin is going to be gorgeous.
    Your fungus is such a beautiful colour.
    Have a terrific Thursday Happyone :)

  11. I love that cabin an the soft/warm light of the morning in your first photos

  12. Hello, pretty landscape images. The lighting is lovely on the second shot. HT is looking good! I like the big rock to use as a bird bath, great idea. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  13. Happy Trails does seem like such a blessing! I can't wait to see it all finished and yet working on it seems to be a blessing to you both as well.
