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

House For Sale

This morning it was 35 degrees and got warmer throughout the day 
until it was 55 degrees.
It was cloudy when I walked but eventually the sun came out and it was
a really nice day.

I walked behind my house, around town, and both cemeteries.
Kathy was out walking.  Haven't seen her that many times this year.

I ended up not taking any pictures on my walk today.
Nothing caught my eye and before I knew it I was back home.

 Walked 6.2 miles
๐ŸŽˆ     ๐ŸŽˆ     ๐ŸŽˆ
At 10:25 I headed out the door again.
This time over to the fitness center and had another balance ball class.
We did different exercises than last week and it was another good workout.
 There were only 7 of u this week.  3 less than last week.  

Next door to us is a big old white house with a wonderful wrap around porch 
and a big barn in back on 2+ acres of land.
Harold and EvaJean have moved to a smaller home and their house is 
now for sale.  I think it a good buy at $250,000.
I am tempted to buy it and move next door but no, the house is much too big
for us and I don't want to move again.  But it does make you think about it.
I haven't done much around the house today.  Just the things that
I HAD to do and then I read my book.

After supper we will be heading out to church as usual
and will be staying after the service to set up for Fingerprints
which we will be doing tomorrow.  We just get everything ready so
in the morning we can start right in on working.
We have a new step to add to our process and we are excited about it.  
Will have pictures and tell you about it tomorrow.

As you can see from the picture that our snow is gone from yesterday already.

Hope your day was a happy one.
A smile from me to you.

BettyC -  The book is an advanced copy given to our library.  They must get some every month because each month at the book club we all put our names in a hat and a name is drawn for a book.  Another woman won this book and brought it back for others to read as well.


  1. What a gorgeous house Karen! I see why you are tempted to buy it.
    Looking forward to your pictures from Fingerprints tomorrow.
    Have a good evening!

  2. Wow...that is a great price for that house and land. It would cost a fortune in the Seattle area market.

  3. That big old farmhouse is beautiful. Hopefully you will get some lovely new neighbors :)

  4. That house looks much too big for me, but I do love that porch.Many happy hours could be spent out there.

  5. When I saw the title for today's post I was hoping that you weren't advertising your home for sale! :-) WOW! That house is the kind of house I love! It is the type of house we left when we moved out here to our current location.

    Will be thinking of you tomorrow as you work for Fingerprints. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of the day.

  6. Such a gorgeous family home! I'd love it but the thought of moving puts me off too!

  7. Hello, the house is gorgeous. The price is great with the acres of land. It would be great for a family with children. Have a happy day and weekend!

  8. Wish I could buy that nice white house.Never seen such one here. But no,I'am content to live in Holland :-) Curious how it is inside. Fitness is good, isn't it? I love to do it. Have a Nice Day!!!

  9. That is a pretty house. It looks so warm and welcoming.

  10. The house looks nice, I like its White clean color. And oh, I love the quote. Have a blessed week happyone!

  11. That house is georgous! It would be perfect for a larger family. It looks so country. I just love it!! Hope you get some friendly neighbors moving in it.

  12. The house for sale is beautiful. I'm thinking bed and breakfast. That is always what comes to mind when I see a house with character like that. I especially love the wrap around porch!

  13. That does look a characterful house ...

    All the best Jan
