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

Another too cold to walk outside morning so walked in the basement.
No outside pictures from today but here is one from the past 
when we lived in town and had a decent amount of snow.
I'm standing in the front yard.
Think it was 2014.
Left mid morning and we drove down to LaVale.
Did a little shopping at the Walmart.
Bought these storage containers for getting my pantry
organized.  They make a good start and I'll be buying more of them
in the future.  Makes the pantry look neat and tidy.

Went to  Ollie's and walked around there to see if we could find any bargains.
I found this yarn on sale for just $1.99 a skein.
Bought three, will make pretty squares for a baby blanket.

Puttered around the house when we got home.
Did a little of the puzzle and read.

Had supper and now we are off to church.
 Probably won't have time to blog tomorrow.
It's a Fingerprint work day at church from 9 till 9
but I'll be back on Friday.

A happy day to you.
Thanks for stopping by.

 Sorry no pictures today.

The temperature was 5 degrees here this morning
with more snow falling.
It was the kind of snow that doesn't amount to anything
but just kind of floats in the air.
Really pretty to look at.
Was a wimp today and walked all 6 miles inside.

Got some things done inside this morning.

We went bowling again today. 🎳
Today there were 8 of us.
My Scores:
Bad first game 95
but then things improved with a 132 and 138.
Ken's Scores:
132, 135, and 147
We ate out again after bowling and this time went to Denny's.
I had the Bourbon Chicken Skillet - very good.

Had a fun time bowling and eating and and now it
is nice to be home in a nice warm cozy house too.

So ends another day.
A happy day to you.
Thanks for stopping by.

This morning it was 8 degrees, snowing, and a bit icy
so started my walk making loops in the basement.

After breakfast I told Ken I needed to get outside for a while
so I went out and shoveled the snow off the driveway.
By then it was up to 12 degrees.
Shoveling made me very warm so I went for a walk to cool off.

Ended up walking the rest of my 6 miles outside.
Walked up the lane towards Ron and Theresa's house.

I saw that Ron was outside (spotted his orange hat) 
so walked over to his house to say hello and have a little chat.
If you look close or click to make bigger you might be
able to see that speck of orange next to the house which is Ron. 

Took these pictures on the way back down the lane towards home.

Just about home, driveway on the left.

Had planned to get some house cleaning done this morning
but sure was glad I went outside instead.

Got a start on this weeks house cleaning this afternoon though
by getting our bedroom done. 

Then it was time for reading and making a few weave-it squares
for next months baby blanket.
Don't have a pattern in mind yet but the colors
I'm working with so far are purple, pink, and white.

Temperature never did get out of the teens today but
it sure was nice to see the sun shining!!

That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
A happy day to you.
happyone  🥰
