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 snow pile

More sunshine today and the melting snow continues. It makes for icy mornings though because it all freezes up at night again.
Yesterday I mentioned that the carport at the old house caved in under the snow. Ken took this picture of it on his way home from work.This picture is the top of the mountain of snow at the end of the street by our driveway. I took it out the back door that leads out to the deck. I thought it would be fun to take pictures of it as it melts and gets smaller and smaller. I wonder how long it will be there until its completely gone! I'm thinking sometime in March.

I did my exercise with the Wii again this morning. You can get a good workout with the Wii Fit if you don't just play the games. The strength training is really good and some of the exercises are very tiring. You start out as a beginner and as you get better, the next stage is unlocked and you get to do more repetitions. I'm enjoying the step part of the workout too. The balancing games are fun and I save them for last. As nice as this Wii system is I still really miss my morning walks. I'm hoping by Monday I'll be back walking around the lake once again. :-)
Please snow melt FAST!!

I did a bit more snow shoveling to widen the driveway on my side of the garage.
Knitted some more on Ken's black hat and hope to finish it later today.
I read this afternoon too and the book I'm reading is very good and hard to put down.

I'm looking for to this evening because we are going out to Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis to see The Association. The show starts at 8:00 but we will go earlier and have a bit to eat first. Hope parking won't be a problem with all the snow.

I'm off to read some more of that good book now.
Enjoy your Friday!

  1. That is a shame about your carport. Thankfully there were no cars under it.
    Have fun at the concert.

  2. Sorry about the carport, which I didn't even notice at first because snow always makes everything so pretty. I was just thinking how charming your former home looked sitting there in the snow. Don't worry. It's going to be gone before you know it. Just look at how the day is already lengthening.

  3. I hope you can get to the theater and back home without any problems tonight. That is quite a snow mountain you have by your driveway. It will be interesting to see how long it remains.

  4. The Association - that should be a fantastic concert!

    Sorry about the carport. Glad neither of your vehicles happened to be under it when it caved.

    Unless you get a real heatwave, I think that mountain of snow is going to be there a while. LOL!

    By the way, thank you for your input about my pasta cooking/baking/freezing questions. =)

    Have a fun weekend and hope you're back to the regular walking routine soon.

  5. What a pretty house, I have always liked the thought of being able to sit out under a porch and watching the world go by. We tend not to have them here in England, just a few houses have them, maybe influenced by your houses.Very nice. Glad the snow is beginning to thaw.

  6. Love the Association! Excited to hear about the show :)

    Sorry about the carport!!

  7. Hi Karen,

    That carport is gonna take some good amount of work, i guess. But i hope that the show turns out to be great to compensate... Have a great day...
