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

62 degrees this morning at 6:30 when I left on my morning walk.
Some fog around early on but then there some sun around.
Walked the Farm Loop.
There were a few cows in the front pasture at the dairy farm.
The chickens were all running around 
and also saw a few barn cats.

The farm house at the dairy farm is getting an addition.
They ripped off the porch a while ago and I did wonder why.
When I got to the end of the road instead of turning left and heading
back to town I turned right and walked this way. 
Eventually turned around and walked back to town and home.
You can see this pond in the above picture on the left side of the road.
Here I faced it and took the picture.
Walked 6 miles

Made blueberry pancakes for breakfast and then I got busy baking
some Snickerdoodle cookies.   We are invited to a BBQ this afternoon 
and made them to bring there.

While I did that Ken loaded up the pickup and started bringing more
loads of his train stuff and brought them up to the new house.
It is all going in the basement and during the winter Ken can
get it all organized and start on his new layout.

Once I was done with the baking, I helped Ken load up the pickup
truck though I didn't go with him to unload (had things
to do around home) at the other end.
He  made quite a few trips, I lost count of how many.

Leaving in a little while to go to the BBQ.
Enjoy your day.

I take pause this day to remember all the men and women
who died so I can live in freedom.

"A hero is someone who has given his or her life
to something bigger than oneself."

Hope you enjoyed your BBQ. Peter bought himself dome Calor gas for it but he thinks if he puts his BBQ together it will bring the wet weather. Also we're waiting to find out if our friend wants seven bags of cut up wood or if we should take them to the dump and then we'll have more space for his BBQ.

Sounds like your hubby has a drive to get stuff to the new house! That's wonderful.

Debby Ray said...

It's so nice to be close enough to just take truckloads of stuff as you go...makes the move a lot easier!

I'm certain that you are getting anxious to move in to your new home. Not much longer now!
