Books I've Read In 2018

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

David and the Puzzle

 We got a break from the snow today.
A cold, windy, but sunny day.
Not a good day for walking in town though so I'm still down
in the basement.

Lunch Time

Went outside this morning and shoveled yesterdays snow off the driveway.
Ken came out and helped a bit today.

Then we got out the ATV and had some fun driving around
Happy Trails in the snow. Went up to check the cabin and all is well there.

Put away the puzzle and got out the next one.
As long as there is snow around we'll keep doing puzzles.
I got to thinking about the time when our son David was just
3 years old and we were doing a puzzle.
He wanted to do a puzzle on his own. He had those wooded ones
for little kids but he wanted a 'big people' puzzle.
I told him it would be too hard for him but he insisted. 
So when we finished our puzzle I took 100 pieces out of the puzzle
of scene in it and set the pieces out on his own little table and he went
to work on it.  It took him 2 days but he did it without any help!!
He must have gotten the puzzle gene from us. 🙂🧩

 Spent the afternoon doing a bit of this and that again around the house,
all my usual things.  
I enjoy being at home but once in a while I sure do wish
we could go out and spend all day down in LaVale or Morgantown
like we used to. Would be nice to browse around in all the stores
and stop for lunch somewhere.
Well its something to look forward to. 😃

Hope your Thursday has been a good one for you.
Thanks for stopping by.

More snow and a puzzle

 Once again it snowed over night and into the morning

so had another walk down in the basement with the trains.

A look out the basement doors.

Didn't go out and shovel the snow today because it was very
windy.  Didn't have to go anywhere so decided to put off the 
shoveling until tomorrow.

I made 2 loaves of English Muffins this morning.
Sliced them up and put one loaf in the freezer.

Another puzzle is completed.
I'd like to live here.

Kept busy this afternoon doing a bit of this around the house
and then getting some reading in before supper.

Hope your Wednesday was a good one.
Thanks for stopping by.

More snow kept me walking in the basement this morning.
You all must be getting tired of snow pictures so today
here's a train layout one.


After breakfast I shoveled the snow off the driveway again
and then we went off to the Shop and Save to do the weekly shopping.

When we got back the snow plow had come by and left a pile of snow
across the driveway.  Not too big to drive through though.
After putting away the groceries I was back outside again
clearing the end of the driveway.

Ken was nice and made me nachos for lunch which is my favorite lunch.

After all the shoveling and walking 6 miles I was ready to have a
relaxing afternoon.

Haven't been knitting for a while so I got out the pink scarf I've
been working on and sat by the window and knitted.
The sun came out and poured in the window and I sat in the
sunshine and knitted. The scarf is about 30 inches long now.

Here's a picture of the scarf to remind you what it looks like. 

We worked on the puzzle a bit this afternoon and I'm sure we will
have it finished this evening.

So that's all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
A happy day to you.
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️
