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 Picture

🏡     🏡
Up and out of the house at 7:20 this morning for a walk around town.
It was 38 degrees and the sun was out for a short while before it 
clouded over.
First stopped at the library to drop another book down the slot.
Then a walk twice around the ball park loop 
and a couple of times around both cemeteries.
Stopped down at the barn by the Drane house to say good morning to the
horses.  They barely looked up as I talked to them.
Pretty quiet around town early this Saturday morning.
This morning my walk was up to 4.2 miles, before long I'll be back to my
usual 6 miles.
Lovely to be outside.
🏡     🏡
The latest puzzle, I think it is number 5.
 I baked a BIG batch of Chocolate Chippers for the kids at church
for tomorrow. 

This is the stone we picked out yesterday.  
For the porch and inside wall by the gas stove in the living room.
 After lunch we went up to the house site.  It has been a while since I was there
and was nice to see all the progress.
 The French door and window in the dining area.
Propane Gas Tank
which is on the side by the garage.
Pretty sure the move in date will be some time in April.

It's been a nice day and another one to be thankful for my many blessings.
Count your blessings and have a happy day.

So much progress since we saw the house last. It has a perfect setting and is nice and high. That's the first thing my husband looks for...a high elevation to be above any water that might flood.

Tom said...

Lisa said...

That sky photo is gorgeous.... and so is your new home. It's changed so much since I last visited. I'm so sorry you've had the flu. I saw in the news that there are 3 deaths from the flu at one of our local hospitals. Scary stuff. Take care of yourself!

The house is looking great! That porch is going to be great to sit on, and of course I'd love a big garage likethat.

I'm so sorry you've been sick! I hope you get all of your strength back soon and can do all the things you enjoy. The house is really coming along. Take care my friend. hugs, Diane

April sounds about right from the way its shaping up

Connie said...

Wow! The last photos that I saw of the house were nothing to how far along it is coming now . . . I love that you kept so many of the close trees. I see so many people go in to build and they just scrape the land of all trees and build on a bare muddy lot. Those tree will provide you with lots of shade as well as the lovely music from the birds. It's going to be such a tranquil and relaxing home.
Counting my blessing daily.
Connie :)

Great news on you health. You are in such good shape it won't take long to regain it. The house looks grand. April is not that far away. Guess you can take your time getting moved in.

Wow...what progress has been made! Love the setting and great porch...the stone will be an amazing touch. My son in TN has very similar stone on his porch and the fireplace inside as well. Can't wait to see the next update!
