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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Crushed Rock Pictures

A mix of sun and clouds this morning when I left on my walk.  60 degrees and no breeze.  Had my usual walk to town and went straight down the main road, passed our old house, walked the street behind the house and then turned around and walked the same way back home again.

 Quite a few deer around this morning all along the way to the main road which is 1.3 miles from my house.

Rebecca was out walking in town.
Saw Dwayne too and we stopped for a little chat.

As I walked passed the bakery two truck drivers walked out of the bakery and sat down down at a table in front to eat their donuts.  We all said good morning and then I saw them bow their heads and pray before eating.  Such a nice thing to see. πŸ™‚

Saw a couple of men setting up a yard sale as I walked passed.  It was all tools which were all polished and looked well cared for.  I stopped to talk and was told that the tools are very old, some as old at the 1700's.  Didn't ask prices but I'm sure they weren't cheap.  A yard sale didn't seem like the best place to sell something like that.  After I left thought I should have taken a picture but didn't want to go back.

Walked 5.6 miles

 πŸŒ€     πŸ™‚     🌀

All the rock that was crushed yesterday was spread out and then we went and crushed  another 12 buckets and spread them out. As promised here's some pictures of the work so far. Ken is going to put a small stone wall on the edge under and up to the lattice.  Where the plastic is will be gravel and will probably go get that tomorrow.

Once again after working we sat on the front porch and this time had ice cream cones while we discussed a future project.

Pizza for supper tonight.

And the devil said unto him,
If thou be the Son of God,
command this stone that it be made BREAD

And Jesus answered him saying, It is written
That man shall not live by BREAD alone,
but by every word of God.

Love the section of scripture you shared!
Wow...that rock really looks nice. That represents a lot of work by the two of you. Nice! That sky looks interesting. Have a great evening!

Deb said...

Things are looking great! I love the little railroad Crossing Sign and fire hydrant. :-)

You saw a lot of deer again this morning. Isn't deer hunting season coming up? No doubt the deer will hide and hopefully be safe. You'll miss seeing them.

Rose said...

All that work is paying off. Things are looking so good!

Debi said...

The rock you are putting out looks so nice. It must feel good at the end of the day to sit down and see all that you have done. You may have mentioned this but if you did I missed it (or more likely, forgot it!) but the rocks that you are crushing... are they from your property?

The crushed rock really looks nice. And, to think, there will be no grass to mow there.

The crushed rock looks really good. I like stones in their many forms and would be tempted to put a couple of large stones on the gravel like a Japanese garden. Less weeding and no mowing too sounds good.

You're not building a railway outdoors, are you? Like the rail-road sign.

God bless.

Hope you wear ear protection crushing those rocks. You've done so much of it. Everything is looking fabulous. Doughnuts are definitely something to thank The Lord for. 😁
