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

No morning walk for me as expected, but I did spend 2 hours playing around on the Wii! I did the yoga, strength exercises, some balance ones and had lots of fun. :-) I can't believe how fast those 2 hours passed by. I planned on just one hour.

I put the ingredients in the bread maker to make French bread and then went outside and shoveled off the front stoop and steps. A nice sunny day again and more of the snow melted! :-)

Vacuumed up and down stairs. I always like to hear the noises of the little bits going in the vacuum. I can't find the right word for that sound but I'm sure you all know that sound. Makes me feel like its worth doing the job in the first place.

Next I felt it was time to sit down and read for a bit. I also snuck a little knitting in there too.

I had planned to eat dinner at home but when Ken came home from work he said I needed to get out of the house and we went to the mall. Walked a mile around there and had a bit to eat at Chevy's, a Mexican restaurant.

Driving around is quite a challenge. Some of the lanes just disappear when your driving and some ramps haven't been plowed yet. In places you feel like your driving through huge white tunnels. Parking lots have huge piles of snow everywhere.
And guess what!! Tomorrow more snow is on the way. Now they are saying between 10 - 20 inches depending on where you live.

In a little while when I get off the computer I plan to go and watch a little television and have 4 cookies for my snack (raspberry chocolate chip).

I put a nice spring scene of one of my walking paths on my desk top. It's so nice to look at green grass and purple flowers. :-)

Share your smile,
Happyone :-)

  1. We're due to get another foot of snow tomorrow here in Michigan. Spring WILL come!!!!

  2. I know that sound...it's a little like the ping from popcorn popping, but not quite. What a nice hubby to get you out of the house. That Wii sure is coming in handy!

  3. Yes, sharing a smile is good plan for every day. :)

  4. I'm glad you have the Wii so you can get some exercise on snow days. Everyone who has one tells me it is a wonderful device. I'm glad you were able to get out of the house for a while at least.

  5. It was nice getting out, wasn't it? Yesterday I took two photos of Lakefront that I'll post later. We only went to the post office, and I stood by the lake for a couple of minutes, but it felt good to be outside.

  6. Since reading your posts, I've become somewhat interested in the Wii. I looked at the display yesterday at Best Buy - so many different components - how do you choose?

  7. Barb, I just got the main one and then the Wii Fit Plus. Its so much fun!!

  8. I'm familiar with that sound and it is very satisfying indeed.
    I heard the forecast for more snow in your area and thought of you. I can't imagine where you all will be able to put more snow. Your mountain may soon be to the rooftop.


Hello my friend.

I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
