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.

Barn Collective

Linking up with Tom for the Barn Collective.
This barn is on the way from my house to the new one.

🚜     🚜
Cold, dark and icy, so decided to wait until later in the day for a walk.
It was clear first thing in the morning but then it clouded up and
started snowing.
When it was light I bundled up for my walk including wearing my snow
sneakers and ice grippers.  Very icy and I slipped some even with the ice
grippers so I turned around and went back in the house.
Did some loops in the house.
Later in the afternoon the sun came out and I went out and tried to get
some more ice off the driveway.
By this time I could have went for a walk but just never did.
I was going to walk to the library and the post office but then realized
it was a holiday and they would be closed.

Inside the house the latest puzzle is finished.
I think it is number 4 for the season.
We all liked working this one.  Not easy but not that hard either.
Ken was up at the building site helping out.  The rest of the doors are being
installed today and I think the garage doors are supposed to be 
delivered this week.

 Count your blessings and have a happy day.

Bible app verse

I have a Bible app on my phone and each day it gives me a verse
for the day.
This is today's verse.

John 11:25
Jesus said unto her,
I am the resurrection, and the life:
He that believeth in me, though he were dead,
yet shall he live.

Picture is from yesterday.
Today it is cold (high of 10) but a beautiful sunny one.
A blessed Sunday to you.
Jesus Loves You.  😊
Happyone  💕

A snowy day

The snow is back today.
⛄     ⛄
I waited till it was light out and then went for a nice snowy walk.
15 degrees (that was the high for the day) and a bit windy.
Good thing I was wearing my snow sneakers and ice grippers because there was
ice under the snow in places.
 I walked around town trying to stay out of the way of the snow plows.
The main road was plowed but they were just getting to the side roads.
Walked around one of the cemeteries but the snow was too deep for my
snow sneakers at the other one.
I ended up walking quite a few times around the ball park loop 
because I was out of the way there.
I'm on the second loop here.  Those are my footprints from the first loop.
Didn't get all 6 miles in today, just a bit under 4.
 ⛄     ⛄
I made us blueberry pancakes for breakfast.
That's always a nice treat. 

It snowed pretty much all day but we did have a few peeks at
the sun for a couple of minutes here and there.
I'd rather have snow than rain though, at least the snow makes everything pretty.

We went out to do a couple of errands and then were home
in the afternoon.
Ken has been working on taking his train layout apart and packing it up.

I mostly worked on the latest puzzle and should have it done in a day or two.
That's been my day so far.

Count your blessings and have a happy day.
