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.

I'm back to walking!!! :-)

I thought that my walk today deserved a post all it's own. :-)
It was icy when I first woke up but with the temperature rising, by about 10:00 the ice for the most part was melting.
I thought enough is enough I am going outside to walk. I don't care if I have to walk in the street. Now that most of the streets have been plowed the whole width of the street, I felt safe enough to walk facing traffic. I can't yet get to the park around the lake but I did find some sidewalks and paths to walk on too.
Come and walk along with me.
I started out walking down the street.
Sometimes I walked on shoveled sidewalks.Sometimes they looked like this.
Other times I came upon a dead end of snow.
I got lucky some places and the paths were even plowed.
Then I would get to one of the bridges
that was still covered in snow and had to
turn around and go back the same way.
It was wonderful to be outside and walking once again and I walked my usual 6 miles. It was pretty windy but the sun was out and I was walking and breathing in nice fresh air. You just can't beat walking outside. To me its the best kind of exercise there is and it makes me happy!! :-)
I saw a few Cardinals but no deer or any other animals. I wonder where they all were.
A few more pictures I took while walking along.
This car still sits covered in snow.This stop sign got plowed right along with the snow.I paused a moment to look up
at the bright blue sky through the trees
and Thank God for this beautiful day.Happy Days of walking are back!!

Sunrise 6:54
Sunset 5:49
I'll be back later tonight.
Happyone :-)

  4. It was terribly windy here today, too, but the sun was strong and the snow was melting from the roof...drip, drip, drip. That walking still is an adventure. I really don't like the look of walking on the roadside. You'd have to make an amazing jump if a car were coming!

  8. Never would have imagined your snowfall would decrease so much, so quickly. We lost a few inches of ours today, too. =)

    Glad you were able to get back outside once again to walk. It's not fun having to change good routines.
