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

Bedroom and bathroom painted

🌼     🌼
24 degrees this morning when I left the house at 6:30 on my walk
and at 7:00 I was happy to see the sun pop over the mountain.
Nice to see it stay out too and it did warm up, 32 when I got home
and in the afternoon it was in the 50's.

Walked up and down all the streets in town, around one of the cemeteries,
and the ball park.  Walked up Barn Sale a ways and down toward Happy Trails too.
Beautiful morning to be out walking.
A few pictures along my walk.

Walked 6.7 miles

Stayed home and got some house cleaning done in the morning.

The afternoon was spent at the new house.
We had gravel delivered to the house and Ken moved some of it around
back and I raked it out.  A deck will eventually go out here and
we have started to put gravel under where it will be.  Still a lot more to do.
 We have to dig a ditch, put in a pipe for the water to drain,
and then cover it all with gravel too.
That will run all along the back of the house.
Lots of work to do.

Inside the house Ronnie has finished painting the bedroom
and the bathroom.
I'm really liking these colors.  Exactly how I pictured it.

 My new hiking shoes came in the mail today.
I walked around in the basement quite a few times and they feel good.
Now the test will be on my walk in the morning.
That's been my day.
Life is Good
Count your blessings

I really like the color in the bathroom, I have a similar color that will be going in my office in maybe a month or two.

Wow...the paint colors look so nice and I like the style of your bathroom. I see we have the same ideas about bathrooms...I want the bead board half way up with chair rail too...maybe in my kitchen too. So fun watching it all come together! And those are good looking shoes too. :)

I like your colour palate for the bathroom. Very soothing and calm.

The colors look nice...on the walls, the sneakers, and the grass. What a difference a few days make!

Wow, your place is coming along. Love the colors. I hope you have many years of enjoyment in your new home up in the hills. Shoes look good! I just bought a pair of new hiking boots, but have not used them yet.
