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

This morning the thermometer read 52 degrees and looking out the window
it just looked cloudy but there was a very light drizzle in the air.
Thought about going back in for my rain pants and slicker but decided not to
so I ended up being a bit damp.
Crazy mixture of drizzle, sun, and wind during all of my walk.
Walked behind my house, around town, the cemeteries and the
ball park loop.  This is the stream by the ball park.
Didn't see anyone else out walking or running.
Walked 6.2 miles

 Sun and clouds all day and very windy.
Ken went up to Happy Trails right after breakfast to finish burning up
the wood from the trailer that we started yesterday.

I figured I'd better stay home and get some things done 
inside the house today.

I found some time to read my book too.

A happy day to you.

Tom - We used Ondura on the cabin roof, which is corrugated asphalt panels.  I've not heard of Onduline but it sure sounds similar. 

Sharon - Oh no, we will not be moving in the cabin at HT.  It is only a dry one room cabin and just a little retreat up in the woods for us.  That it is only 3 miles away makes it VERY NICE.  

Prunella - We have many on going projects up at HT ๐Ÿ˜Š but the next big one will be building an Outhouse!!  That will be next year.


  1. ...I love your golden glow!

  2. The photos are beautiful, but then I love rainy weather. I've been looking down like you lately and found 26 cents today.

  3. Lovely photos you captured on your walk.

  4. It was windy today, wasn't it! I had an eye appointment in Morgantown this morning and then ran to Aldi afterward to pick up a few things. I was back home around noon and that is when the wind really picked up here!

  5. The light in the first picture is just gorgeous.

  6. Three lovely photographs.
    You are certainly having mixed weather at the moment!

    All the best Jan

  7. That's nice that you had an opportunity to do a bit of reading.
    Rainy days and reading are perfect companions :)


  8. Oh, I so love, love that first shot! I always love it when the lighting is like that!

  9. I love the feel of stormy skies with the sun glaring through.

  10. I hope you didn't get too damp, K.
    I think your HT hideaway is going to be wonderful!

  11. An happy day to you! I love the stream! When I was a child I was Always playing around and in our stream, with my friend.

  12. Hi Karen, sounds like we are having similar weather. Good day to catch up on your reading.
    Take care.
