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.

Another pretty warm morning with a temperature of 64 degrees.
I don't ever remember it being so warm here in October.
Not complaining though.

A cloudy morning with a feel of rain in the air.
No rain while I was walking but we did have rain later in the day.

Walked the streets behind my house, around town, down toward Happy Trails,
up Barn Sale and around both cemeteries.

Looks like the Drane House will be getting a new roof. 
Didn't see anyone else out walking this morning.

Walked 6.3 miles

Baked some Snickerdoodles this morning and just before lunch took them over
to the building site to give to Ronnie.  He was very thankful.
It rained on and off all morning and they still worked.
Lunch time this is what was done.
So exciting seeing the walls go up.
The sun came out for a little while in the afternoon but by
3:30 it was pouring out.
We didn't get back to the site to see what more had gotten done.

Posting early today because right now the internet is working
and who knows what it will be like later!!!
Will try to get around to visiting you.

A smile from me to you.

  1. Love snickerdoodles,actually any kind of cookies! How exciting to see the walls go up, I hope you will have better weather so the work on the house continues!
    Always enjoy your photos!.

  2. ...The James Drane House looks like a little gem.

  3. Sounds like all is well. I like seeing the progress of your new house.

  4. Hi Happyone, I just looked over your recent posts. You will not be surprised to know that I absolutely loved your photos of the sunrise on October 9th. That must have been an awesome experience. You mentioned the pictures don’t do it justice but the pictures themselves are amazing! Great photography! It is neat to see the pictures of your new house going up. Ken is quite a builder! I noticed you mentioned internet trouble a few times and wonder what is the problem? You probably mentioned it in a blog post I missed. Anyway, I hope things will be back to normal soon, if not already. Thanks for sharing your blog, your photography, and your kind comments on my blog. Have a wonderful day and say Hi to Ken. John

  5. Pouring rain sounds so refreshing. We sure could use some of that right now.

  6. Rain is always welcome except when you're trying to get a house built, right? At least you have a wall now.

  7. It's never been so warm here either.

  8. Hello, the house looks like it is coming along. We did have rain all day yesterday. The cookies are a yummy treat. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  9. The house is progressing so well! I'm excited! I'm glad you are having nice walking weather, Karen.
