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

It finally stopped

The snow finally stopped around 4:30 and we saw a little bit of sun before it set. We ended up with at least 30 inches of snow. The road along side our house is plowed and cars are driving by once in a while. What is really annoying is that in our development the plow has not even been through once and there is no way we can leave even with the FJ, it's just way too deep.

We were planning on doing the slate by the fireplace today but realized we needed a wet saw to cut the slate so we had to postpone that project. We did get the curtains ironed and hung in the living room and I am pleased with how they look. Makes the room even cozier.

We spent a lot of time at the different windows around the house watching the snow fall, people shoveling snow, snow plows going by, and people walking in snow past their knees!
It is very pretty but I hope it all melts and goes away fast!!

I played on the Wii and did a little reading too.

Hope you enjoyed your Saturday.
Share your smile,
Happyone :-)

  1. HI Karen

    Yes i heard that the snow fall is very high this time. But i do hope that it gets better soon and you get the pending projects done...

  2. We even heard about the huge snowfalls you have, here on our news in the UK, hope it will not hang around for too long. Take care and enjoy the views!

  3. Oh it will be gone in a few days, I'm sure. Thankfully, we missed this one because that kind of snow stays with us for weeks, even months. Course I'm hearing rumors...

  4. That's a LOT of snow! Stay Safe!!

  5. Even though it's pretty, that is too much snow at one time. Hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer before getting mobile again.

    We only have about 8 inches from the same storm, but we have another one coming through Monday night/Tuesday. So back to the grocery for milk on Monday morning. LOL!

    Hope you have a lovely Sunday.

  6. I'm glad you survived the blizzard and I hope the snow plow has visited your development so you can get out.
