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.

Comfy at home

This morning once again I delayed my walk for an hour until it was light out so I would be able to spot those icy places.  It was 20 degrees and though the radio said it was windy, it wasn't when I walked.  Another quiet white walk and I went around my lake.  I didn't see many people but I noticed there were a lot more footprints in the snow today than there were yesterday.
 There were the usual geese all sitting in the part of the lake that isn't frozen.  Every once in a while some would make a lot of noise and then take off flying.  That's the only wildlife I saw today.  Such a great morning for walking and and my walk never fails to bring me a feeling of happy contentment. :-)

Sunset 5:06
I see that the sunrise is finally starting to be earlier.  Only a minute today but it is a start!!

A day at home for me just doing routine things. A few times during the day I thought it was Friday so decided we should go out for pizza tonight instead of waiting for tomorrow!  Ken is really good about eating whatever I cook or if I want to go out he is just as agreeable.  
So tonight was pizza night.  

I like to take my shower at night, during the winter especially.  It feels nice to put on nice warm comfortable sweats, warm socks with my slippers and come down and sit by the fire (gas fireplace) to watch a little television, have a little snack and knit.  I've already taken my shower and now I'm going to go and sit by that fire. :-)

I hope your day was a happy one.
Happyone :-)

  1. Somehow, flannels or sweats after a nice, warm shower are so very comforting!
