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

The Blizzard

Another day at home because of the snow. No walk. :-(
I did have fun again with the Wii.
I spent most of the day looking out of the windows watching the blizzard. I guess by now you are getting tired of hearing about all our snow, but its hard to think of anything else.
Here are some pictures I took today out of the windows.
This is out the back window.Out the side window.Out the front window. There is a road down there!!The Deck
Ken went to work in all that and was practically the only one at work. Lunch time they sent the few people there home. He stop by the hospital on the way home and volunteered to be a driver to bring people back and forth to work. They said they would call when needed. So far he hasn't been needed but he might be called later tonight.

Not much else to blog about today.
My evening will be a quiet one at home.
Some television.
Some reading.
Some knitting.

Notice the nice spring header I have now. That's what I'm looking forward too. :-)

I hope your Wednesday was a sunny one!
Share you smile,
Happyone :-)

  1. You sure are having a lot of snow! Stay safe my friend!
    and I think it is VERY nice of Ken to volunteer!!

  2. We had three days of sun and the rain is back.
    At least you have electricity and heat!

  3. What a day!!!

    I love your spring header. Something to look forward to.

    I'm amazed Ken went to work!

  4. Positive thinking with the header photo! =) It's beautiful; I love those purple blossoms.

    Great snow photos. Looking forward to seeing more after the storm is finished. Glad you have the Wii, so you can get some physical activity in your day. I'm sure it's torture for you, having to forfeit your daily walk.

    Stay warm. You'll be clipping through that book list in no time!

  5. Love the spring picture and as always your quote cheered me up.
    Stay warm.

  6. Hi Dear Karen,

    That picture is awesome... It goes with your blog so well.. and i am in the least not bored of reading about the snow. Infact i like it. And your husband is such a sweet heart... I hope that you people have safe days throughout. Take care.

  7. I like your header photo very much and can hardly wait to see scenes like that again, I must admit I'm glad we didn't get as much snow as you've gotten. It's almost unbelievable.

  8. I noticed your header pic right away. What a welcome sight at this time of year.
    Every time they show the weather conditions on tv for your area, I think of you. Yikes, that is an unbelievable amount of snow. Thank goodness you have that Wii to entertain you.
    That sure is a nice thing Ken did.
    Stay safe & warm.

  9. I can't even imagine that much snow!! I hope you will be able to get out soon though because I love seeing your pictures of the lake. I'm sure it is beautiful right now. Stay warm and take care! Good time for reading and knitting.

  10. I can't believe how much snow you have! I will stop complaining about 45 and so much rain! Love your new theme! Think spring!!!!

  11. Nice of Ken to volunteer! I'm surprised they didn't take him up on it!

  12. WOW! You do have some snowy scenes. Our friends from MD just left to go to DIA - they have a flight out to Baltimore tonight. They were "stranded" for a week here in Breckenridge. I LOVE your new Header.
