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

A snow shower and a wedding

๐ŸŽƒ     ๐ŸŽƒ     ๐ŸŽƒ     ๐ŸŽƒ
 The temperature did dip a bit lower and this morning it was 39 degrees when I walked.
But not the coldest morning so far.
There were very light rain showers from time to time, but I didn't get wet.
Just a bit damp.

Walked around town and didn't see anyone else out walking.
One of the churches in town is having a fair selling 
baked goods, donated items, and crafts, and people
where arriving to help get that set up.

Walked 6 miles

Those snow showers that were predicted for this morning did arrive,
but after I'd gotten home.  
No big deal and of course they didn't amount to anything.
Hard to see the snow coming down in a picture but I did take one.
I made blueberry pancakes for breakfast and then afterward
we drove down to La Vale.
Ken's coffee maker broke a while back so we went to get a new one.
We had a 30% off coupon plus a $10 off coupon so got it for a great price.
 Also got a wet saw so Ken can cut ceramic tiles for a couple of projects.

Down in La Vale it was in the 40's and the sun was out so I'm glad
we went there and saw the sun.
Back home and it was 37 with showers.

Elizabeth from church and Ben were married today and
we went to the wedding.  Wedding and reception both were at the church.
We just stayed a little while after the wedding but didn't stay for the reception.
Ben is taking her away to Texas.
They make a lovely couple and I wish them God's Blessings
and much happiness.

A happy day to you.

"I dreamed of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
he said one that would make me his wife."
