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

Our First Snowy Day of the Season

Back to walking in the rain again this morning. I walked straight down my road, then turned right and walked to the little pond.
I like this wooden walkway which takes me to the little pond.
As I approached the pond all the mallard ducks started toward me. I guess they thought I had food for them. Once they realized I didn't they took off. At one point I stopped on a little wooden bridge and looked down at the stream, a little ways off I saw a heron standing in the water and a deer at the edge of the stream getting a drink. The heron spotted me and took off in flight right over the deers head. What a beautiful sight to see. It's great to see all the wildlife around me and at times its hard to believe that I live between two big cities. My friend Lin called me while I was walking so I had company on my walk today. :-)
I walked the usual 6 miles.
Right after I got home the rain turned into snow.
I made Ken and I pancakes for breakfast this morning but today just put a little syrup and skipped the whipped cream. We both have gained a couple of pounds and need to cut out the extra stuff.

Library time again today to drop some books off that were due and to pick up a couple more.
Books, books and more books.
Don't you just love the library!!?
The snow continued to come down and
here's a picture I took out of the library window.

Stopped at the yarn shop All About Yarn and bought some size 2 wooden needles that I needed and some pretty yarn to make more Preemie Hats. Of course there will be photos once I get one knitted.

A few snow picture while we were out driving.
Through the windshield.
Passing a farm.
A snowy house.
Sorry about the rain drops.
I took the picture out the side window.It was nice to come back home into a nice warm, dry house. I did some knitting and reading.
Afternoon Snow
We haven't decided what to have for supper yet. Either some left overs or go across the street and get some Chinese take- a- way.

I hope you enjoyed your Saturday.
Karen :-)
Oh! the snow, the beautiful snow,
Filling the sky and earth below,
Over the housetops, over the street,
Over the heads of the people you meet.
Dancing, Flirting, Skimming along.
~ J.W. (Joseph Warren) Watson


  1. Thankful you like the snow.
    You have a beautiful area to walk.

  2. Snow makes the world seem so quiet and peaceful, like a sift blanket that muffles the sounds. Lovely pictures of the snow.

  3. The snow looks beautiful. We only get snow about once every 5 years so we have to travel to see it. Although we did get about 2 inches last Dec. and yesterday we had flurries so that was a surprise to have snow two years in a row!

  4. Looks like you got quite a bit for your first snow of the season. Makes for beautiful scenery!

  5. Dear Karen,
    It looks so beautiful. It doesn't snow here where i stay. But i would love to have some snow. The pictures have come out so good.

  6. As soon as I spotted the snow, I put on a pot of tomato-based zuppa di ceci (garbanzo bean soup)-- a favorite of ours and real comfort food!

  7. Gorgeous pics of the beautiful snow!!

  8. I was in Pennsylvania that day at a football game. The snow was beautiful but made for miserable game watching conditions. I got so cold, especially my hands and feet.


Hello my friend.

I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
