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

I can't tell you how much I am enjoying my morning walks once again! :-) Still can't get over to the lake but that's okay, its still there and I'll have many many days to walk there. I've been walking along the streets and on sidewalks and paths where I can. This morning while I was walking I passed by my friend Lillemor's house as she was getting in her car to go off to work. We talked for just a bit and made plans to meet later in the week for an afternoon of tea and knitting.
Here's a morning picture.
I see a lot of tree branches broken like these here as I walk along.
Not all that many people out this morning. I only saw a few people walking their dogs.
Sunrise 6:50
Sunset 5:52
The new television is now hanging on the wall between the two book cases. It looks like it belongs there.
Before with the smaller TV.After with the big one.
We went back to Famous Dave's last night and had our free dinner of Blacken Catfish. It was delicious and I still can't get over how nice that was to get the free dinners. The manager who gave us the free dinners stopped by our table to see how things were going.

This weekend I baked some chocolate chip cookies using the chocolate mint chips. that I got at Ann's House of Nuts a few weeks ago. They were very good and are my favorites!! I'll have to make another trip there one day soon. I'm out of cashews too who knows what else I'll end up coming home with. :-)

We are getting some light rain now - NOT SNOW but rain. This should help melt a lot more of the snow!! :-)

I hope your enjoying your Monday.
Share your smile,
Happyone :-)
We have no right to ask when sorrow comes, "Why did this happen to me?" unless we ask the same question for every moment of happiness that comes our way.

  1. We've just had a bunch more snow. I'm walking on our treadmill--not nearly as nice as outside would be! Love your TV! It looks great!

  2. What a nice thing to do with a friend...a tea and knitting afternoon.

    Your new tv looks fine there. I wish that I were watching the Olympics on such a system.

  3. Yes, I cannot imagine you NOT being able to walk!!! You must be in heaven now that the streets are more passable.
    I'm looking around at all the repairs everyone is going to have to make: trees, road signs, cable boxes...it's going to be a long time!

  4. I'm so glad you're back to being out and about. I hope this is it for us with the snow. I'm not watching any forecasts. Just not. The new TV looks great hanging on your wall, btw. Great idea.

  5. Wow, that's a beautiful sunrise, lighting up the clouds!

    Your new TV looks perfect in between the bookcases. I would definitely be watching TV on a regular basis if I had one that size! =)

    Glad you're out and about again. Most of our snow has melted. We had rain on Sunday.

  6. Ooooo.... That TV looks awesome... I like gadgets... I am just so excited to think about owing so many of them... I would like to mention here Karen, the colour of this room is just so good...

  7. How nice to meet a friend on your early morning walk.
    The new tv is a perfect fit for the spot between your bookcases.
    Enjoy your Tuesday.

  8. i love that sorrow/happiness quote!
    so true!

  9. I almost bought choc.chip mint chips the last time I was buying choc. chips. I will next time. I love the choc, mint Andes candies. Now I can't wait to Make cookies.
    So glad you got your free meal . That was so nice of them. Love the new tv. Looks perfect .
