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

Mornings have gotten warmer again and today the temperature
was 59 degrees when I left on my walk.
There was a mix of sun and clouds and no wind.
A drive to town and a random walk all over the place.

The bulls were out down by the Drane house.
Toady there were 5 of them and the little horse was still there too.

Took this picture of the Drane house from the cemetery.

A busy day around town on this Monday morning.
A house getting a new roof,
a new sidewalk getting put in,
and a lawn getting mowed.

Passed by the day care center and saw a couple little ones
getting their temperature taken before being allowed to go inside.

Lena and Jim were out walking and we passed each other a couple of times.

It was such a pretty morning to be out walking.
Walked 6 miles
Found a penny 💰

🌤     🙂     🌤

This morning I could be seen doing laundry and hanging out the sheets,
vacuuming, dusting and cleaning the bathroom.
Did it all in a rush because I didn't feel like doing it.
Wanted to be up at the cabin working with Ken.
By 11:00 I was finished with my work and walked up to the cabin.
He was busy putting up siding on the outhouse.
I ended up being his gofer again and handed up pieces of siding
to him while he was on the ladder.

Back to the house for lunch and afterwards went back to the cabin.
It clouded up and we felt a few drops of rain but before long
the sun was back out again.
The roof and three sides are done on the outhouse.
The back still needs to be done as well as the inside
but here's what it looks like as of the end of today.

Got back home too late to eat apples on the porch, too close to suppertime.

Supper this evening was frozen pizza
which hit the spot for us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
A happy Monday to all.
happyone  ❤️

Stunning Autumn foliage against the deep blue sky. Outhouse looks super!! You two do good work. I'd much rather be the 'gopher than hitting my thumb with the hammer. lol

Hi Karen - your cabin and outhouse look like such a fun place! I am sure your son enjoys staying there when he comes to visit. I love the license plates. Looks like you have lived a lot of places, like us! Hope you have a great evening and I will see you again tomorrow!

Ruth Hiebert said...

You are seeing some pretty color. Now that outhouse looks nothing like what I have used. I’m also confused as it is off the ground.

Rose said...

That outhouse is so cute....and you got some really beautiful shots this day!

I was wondering when you'd find another penny.

God bless.

Love the view of the pond, horse and the fall colors. The outhouse is cute, I love all the license plates. Take care, enjoy your day!

Hi Karen- Certainly a busy day for you and Ken- the Cottage Project is looking really good- as Autumn closes you'll be near to Winter soon. We're still in Spring- warm days and cool nights. It was my Partner Chris's 71st Birthday To-day. Cheers. KEV.

I can’t get over how adorable this cabin and outhouse is. I love the colorful tag details. I also see a tiny bird house facing the cabin. I think you should paint it to match the cabin. So cute!


Vee said...

Cutest outhouse ever!

Nellie said...

You really keep busy! Lovely views of changing colors! We’ve a ways to go here yet.

Happy@Home said...

Wow, you two bring the humble outhouse to new levels! It turned out so cute. I love the scalloped siding at the top.
The foliage in your area is looking so colorful. Something we have to look forward to.
