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

Driving once again

A bit misty this morning for my walk. It was a pretty warm morning too with a temperature of 40 degrees. Very happy that the temperature was warm and that we only got rain and no more snow. A little mist certainly wasn't going to keep me from walking!!! I walked a nice even 6 miles. I stayed on the streets and some sidewalks today.
I took this winter scene behind some office buildings.
Here's one of the sidewalks where they ended up taking up not only the snow but dug up some grass on the sides as well. Lots of street signs got knocked down too. Lots of cleanup to do once the snow is all gone.
Sunrise 6:49
Sunset 5:53
Today was the day that I finally got to take my car out of the garage. It's been sitting there for quite a while and I was worried that maybe the battery would be dead. But I needn't worry, she started right up. So nice to drive again!!!
I went to the Tuesday Morning Knit Group which meets at Borders. Bonnie was there too and I gave her all the hats, mitts and booties that I knitted for her.
I have started a new project - a baby blanket.

Bonnie and I were going to go out for lunch after knitting but I had a hair appointment at 1:00 and we ran out of time. I missed out on lunch today. I went directly to the hair salon and had Cheryl touch up my roots. It was handy having my knitting with me because I knitted during the waiting time.

My daughter is moving to Denver this Sunday and this evening we met with her and the grandkids for one last night out for pizza. We enjoyed a pizza at Ledo's.

Now we are home and will be having a usual evening. A little TV, some reading and a snack. Tonight is cookie and tea night!

Hope this Tuesday was a happy one for you.
Share your smile,
Happyone :-)

  1. I'm sure you're going to miss your daughter. :(

  2. Hi Karen,

    Sorry about your daughter's moving...

  3. Glad the snow is thawing at last and you can get out again. At least these days when your daughter moves you can keep in contact so much easier with the internet, but still difficult.

  4. Sounds like very enthusiastic snow clearing.

    Hope it won't be too long before you can see your daughter and her family again.

  5. It sounds like things are returning to normal there. Well, except for your daughter moving. I would imagine it will be hard to see her go.

  6. I hope your daughter has a wonderful new home. You are going to miss her.
    The picture from your walk are so pretty. Sorry about the grass getting it when the walk was cleaned. But at least a clean walk. We have to clean our own walks but we only get a good snow every 10 yrs. This year was it. We have had the snow. I'm and ready for spring.

  7. Nice that things are getting back to your regular routine. Are you already thinking about a vacation to Denver? Hope all goes well for your daughter's move.

  8. I'm sure it's going to be hard to have your daughter move so far away...my thoughts are with you and with her for safe travels!!

    PS - I LOVE Ledo's pizza! YUM!
